Just think about their personality and pick the gift that will give them pleasure. Here are 10 that could be just what you are looking for.

The gadget lover

Here’s the ultimate party trick. This electric wine opener tool makes a tricky job effortless as it removes the cork from a wine bottle in a matter of seconds. Their dinner guests will be amazed.

The wine lover

Do you know someone who likes to sip chilled wine on a hot summer’s day? Forget the ice cubes that dilute the wine. Instead, this double-sided glass cup has a cooling gel that lies between the walls to keep the contents cool. It’s great for picnics or camping too. $65.95.


The game lover

It’s like bowls, but it’s Boules Bocce, a French yard game where everyone tries to roll their boules to the jack to win.  It’s competitive, fun and will get them off the couch into the great outdoors for a bit of exercise. $119.95

The gardener

Are they always complaining about lost gardening tools or never having their tools on hand? This Aussie invention is designed to sit over a green garden waste wheelie bin and stores everything where it cannot be lost. It will hold everything from tree loppers and hand spades to a mobile phone and sunglasses. When they are finished working, it stores the tools inside on a wall hanging bracket.  I want one of these. $35

The garden caddy is the ultimate helper.


The backyard family

Get in on the cornhole craze with portable beanbag toss boards. They are the perfect backyard game while you are waiting for the barbecue sausages to cook. Light and collapsible, these boards
