Gifts for People Who Have Everything
We all have that one person in our life who has it all together.
A great job, beautiful apartment, and always wearing the latest. So how do you shop for people who have everything? The answer doesn’t have to break your wallet—it just might take a little bit of creativity.
Your friend is the ultimate fashionista who sports a new accessory every week, but she also has two adorable cats that star in all of her Instagram posts.
Pet-owners not only love their pets, they love things that remind them of their furry children. Instead of agonizing over a pair of earrings your friend might already have, look into a charming game like the Big Wooden Cat Pile. It’s a reverse Jenga, featuring adorable wooden felines that can stack atop one another. The final product even doubles as a desk accessory, and don’t worry—your friend will find it just as cute when her cats knock it over.
You only see your ten-year-old nephew at Christmas, but you hear that this year he’s outgrown “kiddie” toys and is looking for something more challenging.
He’s an only child, so how do you make sure your gift survives the Christmas bounty awaiting him? Well, if your nephew likes a challenge, maybe look into something a little more old school. Nervous System makes the Geode Jigsaw Puzzle that are each completely unique! Not only that, they make an Infinity Puzzle that can be assembled in thousands of different ways, and an Earth Jigsaw Puzzle made of pieces shaped like animals. His parents might even thank you for finding something more interesting than a video game!
At the office, you sit next to the kindest coworker.
She brings you coffee, snacks, and always seems to have an extra gift card she’s trying to get rid of. Her birthday is coming up and you desperately want to find something wonderful, but you haven’t been working at the office long enough to know all of her interests. The only thing you do know is that she seems so put together! But fear not—even the perfectionists in our lives can use a little doting on. Instead of trying to find the ‘ultimate’ gift, maybe look for something that will make her smile. Everyone can use an extra mug in their cabinet, and Unemployed Philosopher’s Guild makes mugs with designs that appear and disappear with temperature: like the self-painting Bob Ross mug. Or if you’ve seen your coworker with the odd book every now and again, look into the whimsical bookmarks by Mybookmark. There’s a Wicked Witch, Ballerina, Mermaid Tails, and Magician, so you really can’t go wrong with choice!
And who are we kidding—your coworker is so nice, she’ll love you no matter what you get her anyway.
