There’s always that one person in your life that you need to shop for every festive season who is terribly hard to please. They already “have everything” or are notoriously picky; the problems are compounded when this person is a bit of a fashionista to boot.

Which is why Style Rocks is such a great idea for Christmas gifting. This online jewellery brand allows shoppers to create “customisable jewellery” from a wide variety of materials – various types of metals including gold and silver and a huge range of coloured semi-precious stones as well as diamonds – plus other cute pieces that cost less than AU$99 or $115.

If you can’t work out what to choose, or you need some inspiration, check out the Style Rocks section that has pieces that have already been “designed” for you, But it’s really easy to use the customisable system, you really just have to point and click.

For Christmas 2013, the founder of Style Rocks, Pascale Helyar­‐Moray, has some great suggestions for those “hard to shop for” people in your life, check them out below:
