We all know at least one person who is impossible to shop for. Whether it’s because they have very particular taste or have the latest of everything, these people are undoubtedly the hardest to cross off the Christmas shopping list.
Instead of second guessing, struggling to find a present or searching high and low only to resort to a gift voucher or money, read on for the round up of various Norwood Parade traders who stock a unique selection of items - suited for the person who has it all or the person who is picky…

100 Reasons To Panic About #Modernlife Book ($19.95)
No one can ever have too many books. Especially a ridiculously funny book like 100 Reasons To Panic About Modern Life, which spouts a few reasons like ‘you keep trying to get your cat video to go viral’, ‘a visit to your parents means you do tech support’ and ‘some of your closest #friends keep abusing #hashtags and it’s driving you #crazy.’
Digital Travel Scale ($21.95)
We can safely bet the person who has everything wouldn’t have the Digital Travel Scale. No doubt they travel a lot so this ergonomic and easy to use hand-held scale would come in handy. They’d never have to pay excess baggage again!
Cloud Weather Station ($31.95)
The perfect item for the home or office – a mini weather station that responds to atmospheric fluctuations to forecast the weather! If the liquid is clear, expect clear weather. Cloudy liquid? Cloudy weather. And so forth.
