It is oh-so tricky to figure out what to buy for someone who has everything and is hard to please. Such individuals are known for their extensive taste and likes and dislikes. Giving gifts to someone who is highly opinionated is a bit of work. You may end up selecting a gift for them that they do not fancy or even something that they already possess. What do you do then? The key here is to be gutsy and creative.
Unless you want to be labelled as a "Grinch-follower" or "effortless Scrooge", then buying a gift for someone who has everything or impossible to buy for involves three things:
Always find something unique, personalised items or hand-made crafts (by you or someone else).
Try personalising your gift of choice for that hard to buy for friend. Sure, generic will suffice, but tap into your creative side and you'll be dubbed the best gift-giver ever.
Customising gifts for someone who has everything is perhaps one of the most thoughtful things you can do. Just think of what your friend, lover or loved one's face will look like after seeing his or her sweet name etched, printed or embroidered on an item matching his or her personality. You have got an endless list of possible items which can be personalised - from wine labels, to keyrings, t-shirts, keepsakes, notebooks, and even retro sweet jars!
At the moment, photo albums complete with their name along with a special message are popular because they are so personal and attractive. There are loads of album themes and designs available. If that does not cut the mustard, think about picture calendars instead.
Compiling a playlist
People bond over their diverse taste in music. As the day and age of cds, cassettes and even ipods are gone, the world has become more progressive digitally. OTT platforms and online music sharing, listening applications have taken precedence over the older techniques. May premium services allow customers to create common shared playlists. You can create one such account for the gift recipient and share a common music library and much more. It is after all a shared experience; an emotion.
Getting crafty with your pressie is the very definition of going the extra mile. Handcrafted gifts convey a sense of genuineness, creativity and importance. Giving something as special as a handmade novelty item makes perhaps one of the best gift ideas for someone who has everything - he or she will truly love and cherish it for many a year.
Do you wish to enchant the person you are gifting with an extremely well thought of gift? Then opt for online cake delivery or get to baking some decadent desserts yourself. Wow them with a homemade sweet sensation. If you are a baking pro, then whip up some cupcakes or a cake with designs that reflect the personality of the person in question. For non-experts, there are always gift baskets and dessert options available for gifting on special occasions.
Hopefully you are a bit more clued-up about what to get for the person who has everything. There are still mountains of unique, personalised and handmade gift-giving ideas on offer. The true art of gifting is the thought behind the item that you are selecting. Plus, if the person in question really does have everything already, real happiness comes without a price tag.
