Everyone has that friend or loved one who has everything and is therefore impossible to buy gifts for. You spend weeks scratching your head over what to get them for their birthday, every idea you think of not being right because they’ve already bought it for themselves. Worry not – we’re here to help. Here are some gift ideas for that person who has it all.
If in doubt, keep it classic. Chocolate gifts are always a winner and there’s no such thing as having too much sweet stuff, right? You could buy them personalized chocolate, or a gift set with some alcohol or flowers to accompany the treat – the options are endless.
Bring a bit of green into their home with a new plant or two. You could buy a pot for it to go in and even a cute spritzer so they don’t forget to look after it. If they’ve got a garden, you could head to a garden center and buy them a fruit tree.
3. A Subscription
For the gift that keeps on giving, why not gift them a subscription? You could go for their favorite magazine, or choose something a little different. If they’re a book lover, buy them a subscription that’ll see them receive a different book every month. If they’re a caffeine addict, go for a regular delivery of their favorite coffee, or if they’re obsessed with gadgets, you can even get a subscription that’ll see them receive a different device through their letterbox every month.
4. Cookery Course
If your loved one’s a foodie but is a little rusty in the kitchen, book them into a cookery course. You can find anything from classes in baking bread to those that will educate them on the art of BBQing. You could book them onto a course where they’ll learn to make pasta, or cook Asian food – the possibilities are endless.
5. Experience Day
If cooking’s not their thing, there are so many other options if you want to gift your special someone a day to remember. From wine tasting to stargazing experiences, spa days to track days, there’s something out there for everyone.
You can’t go wrong with some nice artwork, especially if you choose something personal for your recipient. Do they have a place that’s special to them? You could get a vintage travel poster framed, or you could commission an artist to do a print of anything from their home to their favorite pub.
7. Craft Kit
Are they creative? Then get them an arty gift with a difference. You could buy them a pottery kit, where they’ll have the chance to make trinkets out of clay. Or you could go for a soap-making kit, calligraphy kit, or candle-making kit.
