5 Holiday Gifts for Loved Ones Who Have Everything

As the holiday season quickly approaches, it’s easy to slip into panic mode when it comes to finding gifts for your friends and family members who already seem to have it all. If you’re at your wit’s end trying to shop for a person who has everything, here are a few outside-of-the-box gift ideas. Your loved ones will probably be surprised and excited about these creative holiday presents.

Create a Craft

If you’re low on funds, but you want to give a gift that’s meaningful and unique, consider making a craft or handmade item for your loved one. You could create holiday decorations, such as ornaments, centerpieces, or wreaths. Or you could make a gift that will keep your loved one warm, such as a quilt, crocheted blanket, or knitted scarf. The one receiving your gift will likely be impressed at the time and care that you put into making a homemade gift.

Select a Sock Subscription

Since socks tend to get worn out or end up missing after going through the laundry, even the person who has everything will occasionally need new socks. Socks are so comfy and cozy that they make a great gift for the holidays. Rather than just purchasing a boring bag of socks from the store, you can wow your friends and family with a sock subscription box. These fun and versatile sets of socks come in the mail every month for a specified number of months. There’s a whole host of different companies offering everything from athletic socks to decorative novelty socks. It’s the perfect gift for anyone because you really can’t have too many socks!

Send a Fruit Bouquet

If you have a health-conscious loved one, you could consider sending them a beautiful, delicious, and nutritious fruit bouquet. You can either purchase one from an online retailer or make it yourself using creative cutters and kebob skewers. There are numerous examples online ranging from easy to elaborate that you could attempt to recreate. After all the rich food on the holiday dinner table, a lighter holiday snack will probably be most appreciated.

Spoil Them with Special Event Tickets

If you’re shopping for someone who really doesn’t need one more physical item in their home, consider purchasing tickets to their favorite sporting or entertainment event. You may need to ask them if they have the date cleared on their calendar, but that won’t give away what type of concert, ball game, or other event tickets you plan to purchase for them. If you choose to buy a ticket for your loved one as well as yourself, this could be a gift that will turn into a lasting memory you’ll always share together.

Make a Donation in Their Name

If you have a loved one who is devoted to a specific charitable cause, making a donation to that cause in their name may be just the right way to honor them during the holidays. Many people simply do not want others purchasing anything for them. Either they’re extremely picky, they feel like they’re already financially blessed enough, or they just don’t want all the attention. For such selfless people, a donation to charity in their name may mean more to them than all the gifts under the Christmas tree. If you choose to do this, make sure it’s for someone who would really appreciate it and be sure to try and find out what charities they’re most passionate about supporting.

There’s no need to feel overwhelmed at the prospect of finding gifts for those hard-to-shop-for friends and family members anymore. With these helpful ideas, you can put a smile on their faces and brighten their holiday season.
