Last Minute Gift Ideas

Here are our top unique gift ideas for that perfect present 

Finding that special treat for someone in your life can be tricky, and a little bit of inspiration can go a long way when you’re scratching your head trying to find the perfect present.

From experiences, through to a gift card to their favourite restaurant of all time, a gift doesn’t need to be large in size to have a huge impact on the recipient. 

We’ve outlined some of our top unique gift ideas to help provide some inspiration when you’re on the hunt for a great gift for that special someone in your life or that hard to buy for a work colleague! 

Red Balloon Digital Gift Card

Take the plunge with an experience or activity – a present wrapped in a box isn’t for everyone; if you have a thrill seeker you are buying for, why not consider a gift voucher such as a Red Balloon digital gift card to put towards an exhilarating activity such as a skydiving experience, sailing adventure or even a kayaking tour. There are hundreds of great ideas on Red Balloon to get your creative juices flowing for that special gift for a loved one or colleague. 


Plant a birthday garden or create an outdoor space  – if you have a green thumb and your gift recipient loves plants and nature, why not plant a beautiful range of annuals or flowers to commemorate their special day. Or better still, you could gift a digital gift card for Bunnings or Barbeques Galore for the recipient to choose their own special garden supplies or put the credit towards the outdoor BBQ area.

Digital Gift Cards for any Occasion

Get back to nature on a camping trip – there is nothing better than getting back to nature, and a camping trip or hiking expedition is a unique gift that will tick plenty of boxes for the recipient. Consider a BCF gift card, Kathmandu, Rebel Sport or even Footlocker for the perfect camping or hiking gear for an adventure. 

Embrace your inner gamer – if your recipient loves chilling out with gaming or just relaxing at home with some fun Xbox or PlayStation activities, there are some great options for gifting subscriptions to PlayStation Plus, Xbox Live Gold or simply a credit towards EB Games. Ideal for those individuals who enjoy gaming and having some fun at home using controllers, electronic gift cards and gaming gift cards are unique and always well received.

Commemorative bottle of wine or booze – when all other gift ideas fail, consider a beautiful bottle of wine or liquor as the perfect option for almost every adult. Whether it’s BWS, Dan Murphy’s or Woolworths Supermarket, there is a fine range of wine, spirits and beer to gift for a special occasion.
