We all know someone who has everything that they could possibly need, and while you are very happy that they are at that stage in their life where they are content and satisfied with their life’s lot, they are a nightmare to buy gifts for! So rather than spending hours soul searching for the gift that they never realized they needed, read on to hopefully provide you with a solution to this annual dilemma.
- A keyboard
Yes, a keyboard. Everybody needs a keyboard, and while you may be shaking your head reading this, you need to understand that this is not a regular keyboard. How about if this keyboard was virtual? If your recipient is an avid traveler or gadget lover, they will adore this gift. Lasers project the keyboard onto any flat and opaque surface, and it can be used with the majority of smartphones and mobile devices so you don’t even have to worry about whether it will be compatible.
- A printer
The downside to our smartphones being such good cameras is that you can take many images that are never revisited or see the light of day again. You can, however, buy super small printers that are not only portable but produce traditional photographs within seconds. It is something that you may not buy yourself but would be more than happy to receive as a gift.
- A surfboard
This troublesome loved one may have a surfboard already, but rest assured they won’t have a motorized one! Jetsurfus.com have a collection of motorized boards that can be used on any form of water, whether it has waves or not. The recipient will never again have to face the frustration of having a day surfing that fails to produce one decent wave to ride!
- An experience
Possessions may be plentiful, but perhaps you need to think about an experience that you can share that will be the perfect gift: money can’t buy memories after all. Whether your friend is an adrenaline junkie who would love a day whitewater rafting, or they are more sedate and would enjoy a cookery class, there are experiences to be had to suit all tastes and lifestyles.
- A subscription
There are many types of subscriptions which are on offer to suit any budget and interests. If the recipient is a keen traveler, the National Geographic is a wonderful gift that will help inspire their next journey, or perhaps for beauty product fans, a monthly box of organic products would be a treat.
- An ethical gift
While your friend is fortunate to have all the possessions that they could possibly need, there are plenty of people that aren’t as lucky and lack even the most basic of life’s essentials. Take the opportunity of their birthday to sponsor a child who lives in poverty to help improve their life through education and health services. Not only will you have given a gift to the recipient, but a chance for a child to escape poverty.
Buying gifts for people can be a challenge, especially when they appear to have all the possessions that they possibly could need; as outlined, you do have options, but sometimes the best gifts aren’t material at all!
