Santa’s list of Christmas present dos and don’ts for adults

Sourcing the perfect present can be more frantic than festive.

But never fear, Santa’s little helpers at the Olive Press are here to help.

Must Buys

  1. Treat your pet-owning pals to a portrait of their furry friends this year. Price: from €70. Available online at www.pet-portraitart.com
  2. For sporting style, look to a pair of Rossignol detachable rollerblades. And these boots are made for walking too. Simply slip off the blades and you have a cool set of winter footwear. Price €35. Buy online at www.rossignol.com
  3. Why not add a backing track to your loved one’s washtime with Kohler’s wireless shower head/speaker. Beats singin’ in the rain! Price: €80. Available on Amazon.
  4. Murdock’s beard-grooming kit could be a neat gift to help maintain winsome whiskers at home. Price: €100. Buy online at www.murdocklondon.com
  5. Take the chill off in bed with a cute hottie. Yes, of course we mean a hot water bottle! Price: €10. Available on Amazon.

Stocking fillers

  1. Socks can be cool too! And you certainly won’t be putting your foot in it if they’re a pair of super-soft bamboo socks. Price: from €5. Buy online from www.thesockshop.com.
  2. It may be winter now but happy sun-filled days will soon be here again, so delight your friends with 2015’s must-have beach toy. The Aerobie Pro Ring will revolutionise your feelings about frisbee’s forever. Price: €8. Available on Amazon.

Don’t Buys

  1. Nothing says last-minute shopping like a gift voucher. They’re only glorified IOUs so if you want to avoid being branded as boring, steer clear of store credit.
  2. There are so many reasons not to buy someone a shower gel set. It’s pretty bland being the most obvious, and do you want to send the recipient the message that they smell?
