It's Christmas, and the act of giving is one of the best gifts of all. Research has shown that sharing a gift has psychological and emotional benefits for both parties.
Finding the perfect gift, however, can present something of a challenge, particularly for the person who tends to have "everything".
Thankfully, that's a myth – look hard enough, think creatively enough, and you'll find something that has meaning and wow factor. This year instead of something tried and true, take things up a notch and aim for a gift that's out-there and playful.
We've assembled a fantasy collection of gifts for men and woman to inspire and delight, from the finest timepieces, spirits, accessories and more.
A very merry Christmas
Hitting stores just in time for the holiday season, Google's transforms your regular living space into an interactive smart home. Powered by the Google Assistant, the Home Mini is like a digital butler that can help you sort out your day, your home entertainment and even mange your mood lighting, and it's now just $55 until December 31 (or while stocks last).
For those who are fond of a little bit of sparkle, the most timeless of gifts – a watch – could be the ticket to a very, very merry Christmas.
For women, the Chanel Boy.Friend watch has remained an iconic timepiece. Simple, elegant, and forever stylish, it's the perfect choice for someone who prefers their gifts understated.
Similarly, any man would look instantly better sporting the Cartier Santos Dumont on his wrist.
Cheers to that
But if you're more keen to celebrate with flavour, pop open a bottle of the new Blanc de Blancs – the new champagne from Perrier-Jouet that was 20 years in the making.
Fans of more robust flavours, however, can sit back with the rich and fiery flavours of Highland Park's single malt 18 year-old whisky.
Whichever way you wish to spend it, there's something for everyone in this year's Christmas gift guide. Even for those who are the hardest to buy for ... yourself.
