Some loved ones are very easy to buy presents for, either because they have a very obvious passion you can fuel with a gift, or they aren’t too fussy.
But what about that one family member who’s a bit different? You might struggle to think up a good gift option for them year after year, which can be frustrating.
Never fear, as these present ideas for audacious relatives will provide you with the inspiration you need to make a real impact on December 25th.

Personalised Number Plate
Perfect for the petrol head in your life, personalised plates from Absolute Reg will let you turn a bland car into a new way for someone to express their personality.
When choosing a personalised number plate you’ve got a good level of flexibility in terms of the wording. Just search for a name, number of phrase you think will best represent the intended recipient and see what’s available.
The plates which most closely match your desired choice might be more expensive, but there are usually options to fit all budgets.
Stand Up Comedy Course
If you’ve got a family member who’s always cracking jokes and regularly enjoys stand-up specials on Netflix, then maybe it’s worth pushing them to see if their knack for humour will translate in front of an audience.
There are beginners’ courses for aspiring stand ups that provide a great framework on which people with existing comedic talent can build a more structured approach to making people laugh. While some pros are sceptical about this type of course, there are also many comics who got started after a friend or family member enrolled them in a class.
In an age of inexpensive high street fashion, you might think that buying someone a sewing machine would be completely redundant. But if you’ve been keeping up with the news about the massive damage that the fashion industry is doing to the planet, now might be the perfect time to make a change.
This is clearly a gift that best suits people who are already creative and have a flare for design. However, it’s also something that can be learnt with relative ease and could not only help the recipient make new clothes, but also fix up or refresh their existing wardrobe.
If you know someone who loves their craft beer, then why not get them a Christmas gift that keeps on giving throughout the year?
There are various beer-based subscription boxes around, delivering delicious new brews direct to your door on a monthly basis. You can even tailor the kinds of beers that are featured in each box according to the tastes of the recipient, or go for a more eclectic and experimental mix if the person is happy to quaff almost anything.
If beer isn’t the drink of choice, you could choose a different subscription box. Everything from overseas snacks to amazing coffee can be found in this category of Christmas present.
