So, what makes a gift great?
Gift Giving Criteria:
Something they like but wouldn’t normally spend their own money on
Something that they use regularly
Something that lasts a long time
So, with the criteria in mind, here are 10 unique gifts ideas for the boss babe in your life who already has it all…
Keyrings are great because they go everywhere with the person. Personalise a key ring with a favourite quote, memory or inside joke so they have a reminder of your friendship wherever they are.
@boldandbrassau – Metal Pressed Keyrings
@forlittleluca – Personalised Keyrings
Photoshoot packages are beautiful gifts for anyone and supporting local creatives is just a bonus. The photoshoot experience can be chaotic but always fun and the images will let them hold onto memories forever. You could do family portraits, couples shoots or photos of their pets. If she is brave and you want to give her a push sign her up for a single portrait or boudoir session to boost that confidence. If she’s an entrepreneur get some professional photos of her business, products and herself.

This one is a little more expensive, but subscription services are an amazing gift. Some options for subscriptions can include:
Streaming services like Netflix or Disney+
Other online services like Adobe Suite is fantastic if they are creative or learning platforms like SkillShare
Monthly gift boxes – this one is super fun because there is something for everyone from monthly wine subscriptions to beauty packs or foodie selections
@bsbox.com.au – Small Business Subscription Box
@artbypost – Art Subscription
Support a local artist and get a personalised unique artwork. Once again there are so many options for personalised pieces from portraits of your recipient, their families or favourite animal. You can get quotes, or commission a piece that resonates with their aesthetic. Art is such a brilliant gift because it will stay with them forever. Your gift can travel to all their new houses, offices and rooms with them
