No one really has everything but people can be hard to shop for. Coming up with unique gift ideas for the person who has everything will take some thought and creativity.
You want to find something that reflects who they are, a gift they will enjoy and something they will use. You also want the gift to be thoughtful and you want them to think of you when they use it.
Let’s take a look at some different types of gifts and help get you started with your gift planning.
Gift Ideas for the Person Who Has Everything
Trying to find something out of the ordinary is not always easy. You need to put your gift-giving powers a good workout for them.
1. Autographed Items :
If your friend has a favorite movie star, sports figure or musician, try to find them an item that belonged to them or something autographed by them. A baseball mitt, a theatre program or even an autographed book by their favorite author will make them happy.
There are a few ways to go about this, some easier than others. For books or programs, you can go to a book signing if the author is in town. If it’s a sports figure, they are often willing to sign items if you ask, not pester, them at a game.
For other items, celebrities often donate items for a charity event. Attending the charity and bidding on an item can get expensive, but all to a good cause. You can also find their website and try to make contact that way. Also, contacting their management can get you information and perhaps an autographed headshot.
2. Tickets to Events :
Getting those tickets for the comedy show, the concert, or the big game is always welcome. If you are generous, get them seasons tickets for their favorite team, for the theatre or to their favorite museum. Maybe they will even take you with them. You can find affordable tickets for some amazing events if you search online, and combine those efforts with Seatgeek coupons for even more savings.
3. Give the Gift of Education :
There is always room for learning. If you have been listening, this person has likely mentioned something about wanting to learn about a certain thing. What better surprise than to buy them a gift certificate for classes.
It can be anything from skiing and swimming lessons to how to ride a bike, grow vegetables on your deck or even singing or piano lessons.
4. Classes for Cooking or Language Classes :
Perhaps they have always wanted to learn how to bake or perfect those homemade sauces. Enroll them in some classes for cooking.
Learning a new language is fun and they will not only learn new languages, but they will learn about a new, interesting culture, as well. This is a perfect gift if they have mentioned how much they would love to see a particular country.
5. Personalized Items :
Getting a picture of them or a loved one on an item is a great gift. Consider their favorite picture on a custom beach towel. You can get it personalized with their wedding or graduation picture, or other types of designs.
Their initials, their name or their favorite quote or image of their favorite food. It’s a personal towel that won’t go missing and they will enjoy using it. Check out customenvy.com for ideas of towels, phone cases, mugs and more.
6. Photo Album :
Putting together a photo album or collage of photos of their life, their wedding or even their birthday is a great gift to get. It’s also fun for you to make. Ask their family and friends for pictures you can use and make this personalized album their favorite gift this year.
7. Jewelry and Art :
Who doesn’t love getting jewelry? You don’t have to go broke finding some really great pieces. Why not go to a local artisan who makes their own jewelry and you can support your community at the same time.
Local artists will often have their work on display around your city. When you see some, get their contact number and make them an offer. It’s an original gift that no one else will have.
8. Gift Certificate :
Don’t pooh-pooh the gift cards. It might seem like a bailout, but these are always welcome. You can get them for music or books to download, magazine subscriptions or for their favorite store.
Purses, shoes, specialty food shops, books, movie passes and anything else they like. It’s perfect for the person who appears to have everything. If you know a store they like, get them a gift card.
9. Wine and Accessories :
A nice bottle of wine or aged scotch with some beautiful glasses are a classy gift that people will enjoy for years to come. You can get glasses engraved with their initials or name, for an added touch.
People don’t often splurge on a vintage bottle of wine or fine whiskey, so get them hooked on the good stuff for a change. They might just share that with you, too.
10. Pet Accessories :
If you can find a gift for the person, find a gift for their pet. There is no end of accessories for dogs and cats, and they may not be something that the person would buy themselves.
You can also spring for ‘family photos’, getting a portrait picture of your friend and their beloved cat, Mittens. People take their pets to get pictures taken with Santa Clause, so why not some professional pictures with them and their fur babies.
Wrap it Up :
Coming up with gift ideas for the person who has everything is fun if you know the person well. It’s nice to break away from tradition and find something unique and as individual as they are.
Putting some thought into gift-giving make giving the gift that much more special for you, as well. You get to enjoy watching them open the perfect gift. Imagination will replace expensive any day of the week.
Everyone loves getting a gift. When it’s thoughtful, personal and from the heart, it’s appreciated so much more. If you are a big spender and thinking about buying them, a vacation, here are some great tips for traveling Europe.
