Everyone has at least one friend who is really hard to buy gifts for. He or she doesn’t really need anything and seems to already have everything a person could ever want. Knowing your friend’s hobbies and interests doesn’t help much because you already have a good idea of his or her existing inventory of toys and gadgets. The last thing you want to do is give another gift card. Here are a few helpful suggestions for successfully getting that person a gift he or she will love.
Something for His or Her Pet
Your friend may have everything, but does his or her dog? Say “Happy Birthday” or “Congratulations” with dog gift baskets for the special four-legged friends in your pal’s life. All pet owners love it when their friends pamper their fur babies. These baskets can also be tailored to all sorts of occasions, from “Get Well Soon” to “Happy Arbor Day” and everything in between.
A Service He or She Might Enjoy
Giving a physical gift is always nice, but a great alternative is gifting a service that people don’t commonly buy for themselves. Imagine your friend’s delight as he or she realizes you’ve taken the time and expense out of arranging a massage or a day at a luxurious spa! Maybe learning a new skill is something your friend would be interested in, like a cooking class or pottery-making lessons. These kinds of gifts, especially when they’re a shared experience together, will last longer and mean more than any physical gift.
A great gift is something that shows your appreciation or underscores your friendship. Head down to the place where they sell customized trophies or simply go online and order a “Best Friend in the World” trophy. Think of it like awarding your friend an Oscar or an Emmy for best performance.
That person who is tough to buy for will really appreciate a gift that you put a lot of consideration into, whether it is physical or not. All it takes is a little thought and you can give a gift that will really make a lasting impression.
