Gifts For Tall People
The Gift of Good Sleep: Double, King or King Size Bed Extender
All I want for Christmas is a good night’s sleep! The PillowShelf bed extender is more than just a gift, it’s lifelong better sleep which means more focus, better work performance, general happiness and all round wellbeing. The double PillowShelf adds six inches to the length of your mattress it stands at the head end of the bed, under the pillows, allowing you and your tall loved one to stretch out and get a good night’s sleep. In sizes up to a super king, the extenders are easy to install and can make a huge difference to the tall people in your life.
Matching Christmas PJs for The Whole Family
Who doesn’t love a pair of cosy pyjamas, and even more so when they actually fit! With sizes from 9 months to adult XXL Long (men’s and women’s), you can give a set for everyone in the family to take the perfect Christmas morning photos.
A Gift for Tall Folk Who Work from Home
Is your loved one still working from home? So are we, and our long backs are suffering from being hunched over a standard desk all day. Standing desks allow you to stand tall, raising your screen to eye level and the keyboard to a comfortable wrist level.
It’s not just beds that are too short for tall people, buying furniture as a tall person can be a minefield, and we’re often left struggling with low sofas, beds and dining tables that we need to cram our knees under. These furniture raisers are a thoughtful present that can vastly improve all kinds of pieces in your loved one’s home. With a range of styles to choose from, you’ll find something to match their home decor.
Elevated Chopping Board
A gift they might even use on Christmas day itself while peeling and chopping endless potatoes for the roasting tin! This elevated chopping board gives an extra 8cm height, which can make a big difference when bent over a kitchen worktop. They can also be used as a stylish cheese board, butter board, or whatever board you fancy…
While a massage voucher gift is cute, tall people are far more likely to experience back pain than others, so a professional massage would be much appreciated. You can find a therapist near your loved one and buy a gift voucher that they can cash in when they most need it (maybe after the stress of the Christmas period…).
Gifts For Tall Children
What do you buy for the tall child who already has everything? We’ve got some ideas…
The Gift of Good Sleep: Single Bed Extender
Buy children a gift that won’t end up forgotten by boxing day or thrown up into the attic. This is a gift they will actually use for years to come and it will genuinely bring happiness and increase concentration at school. The single bed extender allows extra room for taller kids without the need for a double bed that takes up loads of room (allowing them extra space for toys, gaming stations, giant wardrobes, etc.).
A Book to Celebrate Differences
Some tall children might feel self-conscious about being a head and shoulders above their friends at school. This is a beautiful book aimed at children aged four to eight that celebrates all kinds of differences, including being very tall.
Gifts For Tall Women
Festive Tights and Stockings
It’s tights season for the women in our lives, and there’s nothing worse than poorly fitting tights that you end up adjusting all night long. Snag offers an array of brightly coloured tights in a very inclusive sizing range, recommended by many a tall, long-legged person. These tights come in lots of fun and festive shades and designs, from candy stripe elf to glittery fishnets, and they even have a line of toasty merino wool tights for the colder months.
Extra Long Yoga Mats
If you know a tall yogi, they are likely to be putting up with a subpar yoga mat that leaves either their feet or hands on the cold hard ground when posing in downward dog. This Christmas, why not get them one of these extra long yoga mats from Yoga Studio Store that come in gorgeous hues and a selection of specifications.
Oversized Hoodie for Cozy Winter Nights
For tall women that are longer in the torso, we often dream of finding an oversized hoodie that actually looks oversized on us. Speaking on behalf of all tall ladies, this Christmas we would love one of these dreamy cosy hoodies that are perfect for nights in spent streaming festive classics and sheltering from the cold.
Gifts For Tall Men
Super Soft Socks for Stocking Fillers
If you haven’t tried bamboo socks yet, you’re in for a treat! They are super soft and these pairs from the Sock Shop come in bold colours and make a great stocking filler. With sizing up to UK 12-14, and priced at under £5 they are a budget-friendly option for our tall friends and family with larger feet.
Something for the Outdoors Types
If your giftee is an outdoorsy type, there are loads of great camping products made for tall people. This Chrysalis four season sleeping bag from Snugpak is extra long at 220cm and is designed for camping in any weather.
…Or a long-length two person tent to plan for adventures in the year ahead! This Coleman’s tent is over 300cm long, leaving lots of space for the tallest of the tall to rest on a backpacking trip, plus it’s really easy to set up.
