Each of us knows at least one individual that isn’t easy to buy for. They either seem to have everything already or don’t seem to like anything you buy even when you feel you’ve found them the perfect gift. it doesn’t matter what you get from the latest gadgets to the most luxurious bath products, whatever they want they buy it for themselves, and so it can feel impossible to know what to buy them for birthdays and Christmases. Just what do you buy the person that seems to have everything?
I have to ask myself this question quite a bit and I’m guessing I’m not alone. Here are three gift ideas that might inspire you, they could be the ideal gift for the more difficult to purchase in our lives.
With a growing number of experience gifts to choose from you are more likely to find something wonderful and dare I say, it something they might not have had the opportunity to do before. Experiences can make amazing presents as you can search for things that interest the intended recipient and go from there. Experiences can create incredible memories that can be treasured for a lifetime. Simply looking forward to going somewhere and doing something can be a big part of the experience and add to ones enjoyment of it all.
An experience also gives you the opportunity to bond with the person in question. The bonus is there are so many different experiences to choose from that you can doing them every Birthday, Christmas or on other special occasions.
My dad mentioned a little while back he would love to go on a helicopter ride. He’s long forgotten the conversation but I haven’t. The plan is try and book this for his next birthday. My parents love to travel so after a google search I discovered that https://www.penninehelicopters.co.uk/ would probably suit him the best with numerous flights over well known parts of the UK he could combine it with a nice relaxing break for him and my mum. It’s on his bucket list if he has one that’s for sure and something I know he’d love to experience at least once in his lifetime. He’s always loved gorgeous scenery and how better to see these than from the air.
Of course, there are many other types of experiences that will make a great treat for whomsoever you purchase them gift for. For example, if you are purchasing a gift for someone who is a foodie and afternoon tea or a meal at a nice restaurant (more Michelin star that a basic chain restaurant) would be perfect, if they love music, you could to book tickets to a festival, a concert, or a musical. There are also many amazing sporting events that take place throughout the year, as well as other unique activities and occasions, including adrenaline-filled activities, for example, riding a luxurious sports car or scuba diving. The list is endless, and so you will have no trouble finding something to wow your friend, partner or family member with.
Charity Donation Gifts
Another very thoughtful and unique gift that you could give someone for their birthday or any other occasion is a charity donation. There are so many charities out there today, which support a wide range of causes. You are sure to be able to find something that has a personal connection with the person you are buying the gift for, for example, if this person has recently lost a family member to cancer, then you may wish to make a donation to the Cancer Research charity. There are also charities that deal with any type of physical or psychological condition, as well as charities that are dedicated to helping people deal with loneliness. I have a friend that has asked me to do this at numerous times when I ask her what she would like as a gift for birthdays or Christmas and it’s a lovely selfless gesture and can make a difference to others no matter ow little your budget.
Subscription Service Gifts
Subscription services have become very popular over the past few years. It seems that you can get a subscription for anything nowadays, whether it is a beauty samples box, craft gin, or anything else. Personally I had no idea where to start as I haven’t really reviewed many of these but I found a nice comprehensive list that you might find useful here: https://www.nbcnews.com/better/health/subscription-box-every-single-person-your-list-ncna831181. You can thank me buy writing a great comment on the bottom of this post lol xxx.
There are subscriptions for different types of people, including foodies, animal lovers, those who enjoy crafts, parents, fitness fans, and those that are obsessed with fashion. You should have no trouble finding a subscription that appeals to the person in question. Subscriptions are available at varying lengths; from one month, to several, to a year, which is handy and if the recipient loves it they can always extend the subscription themselves.
So there you have it, three great gift suggestions if you are looking to buy a present for someone who has it all. There is no denying that it can be difficult to buy a gift for someone who has the fortune of being able to buy everything they want and need. But, if you think outside of the box and avoid going for a traditional present, you should have no trouble finding something that makes a great impression.
Do you know someone who is difficult to buy for? If so, which of these suggestions would most suit them?
