We all know that person who already has everything. They’re impossible to buy for, but with our killer gift ideas, you might just get them the perfect present this time.
Shopping for the high-flying business type who’s never far from their phone? The Bellroy Work Folio is a sophisticated and professional way to stay organised in style. With a gorgeous, environmentally-certified caramel leather outer, the Work Folio fits far more inside than its slim design might suggest. Keep an A5 notebook, your phone, a pen, cables, your tablet, up to 6 business cards and earbuds inside, with space left over for loose notes or your boarding pass.
Looking for something to suit a coffee lover? Kinto’s Slow Coffee Carafe Set is a considered, meditative way to make filter coffee that caffeine fiends will adore. Pop some freshly ground coffee in the stainless steel filter basket and pour hot water over it, then sit back and watch as the coffee drips through into the carafe. The brewing process is a key part of the experience, and a great way to start the day.
Studies show that 90% of Dads have absurdly full keyrings. Got that shed key from the place you moved out of in 1979? Darn tooting. Could you open the window of the place your great aunt lived in 22 years ago? Sure thing, no probs. Instead of letting those keys jingle in the wind, grab the Orbitkey and get that keyring under control. Sleek and deceptively simple, the Orbitkey keeps your keys tidy and jingle-free so you can still open Doris’s letterbox from when you used to live next door at a moment’s notice.
When the gift-giving gets tough, the tough get novelty presents. Which isn’t to say that the OSTRICHPILLOW isn’t an incredibly useful tool – especially for international traveller’s, the sleep-anywhere convenience is worth its weight in gold. Unlike standard pillows, this one goes over your head like a padded hood so you can sleep wherever you want. On a plane? Easy. Need a power nap at your desk? You can do that. A killer gift idea for someone who has everything.

With 20 cards covering key psychological situations, like Friendship, Love, Sex, Work and Self, there’s an answer for everything that might keep you up at night. What could make a better gift idea than emotional support?
This simple notebook from Barcelona design house Octagon does exactly what it promises: your most random thoughts, captured on paper so they stop bouncing around in your head. Give this as a gift, and you might just unlock a creative spirit, or help find a new solution to an old problem.
Sometimes the best gift is a simple thing done beautifully. Designed with care and made practically bulletproof, Kaweco’s pocket-friendly AL Sport pens are built to give years of delightful handwriting. The Stonewashed Blue finish gives this gorgeous pen a lived-in feel, but there’s a colour to suit everyone’s taste.
Speaking of simplicity and perfection, if you pick up the Blackwing graphite pencil by Palomino today, you’re holding the same pencil used by the likes of Truman Capote and music legend Quincy Jones. Made in Japan from cedarwood and high-quality graphite, the Blackwing is a design icon you can use in your everyday life.
Practical and beautiful, this canvas world map is meticulously designed by a cartographer using natural hues and shading to depict detailed topography and bathymetry of our world’s surface. At 1.7m wide, it makes a gorgeous design feature that does an astounding job of rendering the complexities of an oblate spheroid in two dimensions.
