Here Are The Best Gifts To Buy For People Who Have Everything

We promise you won't leave this list without an idea for that difficult-to-buy-for person on your list.

Gift shopping for your friends and family is already hard enough as it is. You want to find a gift that’s personal, but not too expensive, and of course, it has to be something that they don’t already have. But what do you get for someone who already has everything?

People who have all the latest gadgets and gizmos and who have a closet full of every wearable they want are particularly difficult to shop for, and you might feel frustrated wondering what to get someone who really has it all. Although it might require some more thought, there are a number of great gifts that go beyond a nice sweater or a piece of jewelry.

Here are six great gift ideas to get for someone who seems to already have everything.

1. A Personalized Photo Item

Whether it’s a picture of you with the recipient or a photo of their family, everyone loves a good trip down memory lane. A photo keepsake is something they can put on display and revisit throughout the year. Websites from Shutterfly to Minted offer a number of customizable products such as calendars, photo mugs, canvas prints and more.

2. CourseHorse Gift Card

Instead of giving them a gift card to go shopping, give them a gift card to learn a new skill—and it doesn’t just have to be something practical (although that’s always an option too). CourseHorse offers everything from cooking classes, to pottery, to drink-making and more, and your recipient will be able to choose whatever strikes their fancy.

3. A Monthly Membership

Some people wouldn’t think to pay for them on their own, but most people enjoy movies and music. Consider a monthly subscription to something like Spotify Premium or Netflix, which both have low monthly fees but provide unlimited streaming. Or consider something like Amazon Prime, which means they’ll never have to pay for shipping and will also have access to a trove of TV shows and movies.

4. Personalized Illustration

Custom-made gifts are always unique, and you can choose to have something special illustrated by an artist on Etsy. Maybe it’s a painting of their house, their family or their favorite vacation spot. This special piece of art is more than something standard, and it has plenty of sentimental meaning.

5. Something Charitable In Their Honor

If someone really has everything, it is a nice gesture to donate something in their honor to a good cause. A number of charities will even send a certificate notifying the recipient that a donation has been made in their name—which will save you a step!

6. Spa Basket

You can never have too many days at the spa, and everyone deserves some self-care. Give someone a  Spafinder Wellness 365 Gift Card, and let them choose where to spend it. The gift-card can be redeemed for goods and services at over 25,000 spa and wellness locations, which gives people lots of options.
