Have you been putting off your Christmas shopping because you have no idea what to get for the special people in your life? Sigh no more. From the resident foodie in your life to the interior design junkie, coffee snob and even the person who has everything, here are some easy, last-minute gift ideas that your loved ones are sure to love. Or, if all this gift giving has got you feeling like you want to splash out on something for yourself, you're sure to find something you love, too.

For the interiors lover


Your loved ones will be sitting pretty with these gorgeous Kimberley Rattan Barstools ($199) from Temple and Webster.


Give the gift of wall candy with this cheerful Hello Polly Waiting art print ($175) from Hunting For George, or add a touch of Country Road luxe with the Jaspa Table Lamp ($249).


If you want to be totally on trend, incorporate pops of Pantone's colour of the year for 2019: coral. We love this velvet, tassel-edged cushion cover ($89) from Kip&Co and this Home Republic malmo linen throw ($119.99) from Adairs

For the coffee lover


Nothing screams 'I love you' like fancy espresso accessories. The coffeeholic in your life will love this beautiful, mouth-blown borosilicate glass coffee maker by Bodum ($69.95 from Kitchen Warehouse). And the best bit? This pourover comes with a permanent stainless stell mesh so you won't even need to worry about paper filters, and a cork grip so you don't burn your fingers. And if they'd prefer to let their Nespresso machine do all the work for them, why not give them a gift that keeps on giving? Like a three-month (or more) subscription to specialty coffee pod pack, Pod&Parcel. Because what's not to love about coffee, delivered direct to your door?
 

For the foodie


These seriously extravagant Hamper Emporium gift hampers are sure to impress even the fussiest of foodies. They come packed with delicious, locally made artisan goodies, fine wines, craft beers or even vintage Champagnes. We love this Moet Grand Vintage and Chocolates pack ($169). Or, extend the olive branch with some ultra premium Cobram Estate Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil ($20).  
 

For the little ones


Encourage little ones' creativity with this carboard colouring-in cubby house ($29.95) from Mocka, or whet their baking appetite with these DIY gingerbread houses ($7.95 from Ikea). 

For the cook


If there is one appliance every avid cook needs, it's a KitchenAid mixer ($699 from The Good Guys). This all-in-one accessory can beat, blend, knead and whisk, making it ideal for making everything from meringue to homemade pasta. Another lust-have item is the Broadsheet Italian Cookbook, which features recipes from some of the country's best and most-loved Italian kitchens ($49.95 from Dymocks).

For the cheese lover


You can never really go wrong when gifting people a set of cheese knives. We're also pretty sure this set of three Art Ridge Cheese Knives ($54) from West Elm will definitely make the cheese your eating with them taste better. And, if you're getting the cheese knives, you may as well go all out and get them a board on which to cut the cheese. Kmart is totally on trend this season with their new range of geometric terrazzo chopping boards ($12).

For the plant lover


If you want to give someone all the nursery vibes, without the responsibility of having to remember to care for living flora, these artificial plants are an ideal alternative. Fiddle Leaf Fig is a perennial favourite ($40 from Freedom), or keep it minimalist with these gorgeous table top terrariums ($19.99) from Adairs

For the linen lover

If change is as good as a holiday, you can't go wrong giving a new quilt cover. And this Aura by Tracie Ellis Chambray quilt cover (from $229 from Myer) is sure to hit the mark. While you're at it, there's nothing like fresh linen and, if your loved one is into their natural fibres, they'll be all wrapped up with these breathable, eco-friendly sheet sets (from $169) from The Beach People. Made from long-fibre cotton and eco-friendly eucalyptus, they're luxuriously soft, silky smooth and hypoallergenic to boot. 



Towels are another safe option. They'll love these spotty Morgan & Finch towels ($29.95) from Bed Bath 'n' Table. And you can never have too many napkins. West Elm's frayed edge napkins are made from 100% cotton, making them a lovely option for a more rustic look.  
 

For the wine lover


Last, but not least, wine. You can never have too much wine. If you make one splurge purchase this gift-giving season, make it this temperature-controlled 35 bottle Vintec wine cellar ($699 from The Good Guys). And it would be rude not to christen it with a bottle of local bubbly, such as a bottle of House of Arras Brut Elite Chardonnay, made by Tasmania's leading winemaker, Ed Carr ($36.99 from Dan Murphy's
