We all had that one person on our list — the one that’s hard to shop for, in a word. They always have the latest and greatest of all, making buying them something a daunting task — especially if you are worried you can not measure up to what they already possess. But even a person who is first to all the new trends in skin care or the latest high-tech hot hair devices needs to be spoiled every now and then. That’s why Allure’s super-specific exclusive gift list for the hard-to-please perfectionist focuses on the most soothing, comfortable and cozy.
Here is a list of unique gift ideas to get them impressed.

It’s an excellent and special way to honor the person you love in life.

This special, hand-made necklace depicts seven richly illustrated planets in our solar system. It’s double-sided, available in two metal colours, so you can still show off the beauty of space. A perfect gift on astronomy!
A Foot Warmer
There is something particularly torturous about getting cold feet (not the kind of nervous jitters). If your gift recipient still worries of cold or achey feet, skip the Fuzzy Socks and go to Amazon for this electric foot warmer. This quick-heating, fluffy wrap is great for tucking under the covers for extra heat boost or toasty warm stuff while lounging on the couch.
