What Gifts to Buy

With Christmas just a few days away, you may be hustling around trying to round-up your last minute gifts but stumped on what to get those last few people on your list. We all have that person on our list that is impossible to check off..they have everything they could possibly need (and more!), are extremely particular or you simply don’t know them well enough. With that being said, do you have a unique gift idea for what to buy someone who has everything… please share! πŸ™‚

      Ok… Odd

    I did a blue apron week as a gift this year. A fun activity to select and try a new recipe. Plus everyone eats and it isn’t another ‘thing’ cluttering the house.

    Dinner gift card, spa gift certificate, nail salon gift certificate, bottle of bubbly (Veuve Cliquot sold at Costco) – and experience like kayaking, stand up paddleboarding (I live in CA), ice skating or tickets to a local art museum. Something that is not a “thing” to put in their house.

    We buy food gifts for those who have everything:) it was easy this year bc we have a Sam’s Club membership!

    A couple of years ago we bought 1000 piece puzzles and put them together as a family throughout the year. We then modge podge them and frame them(large frames are fairly cheap at Michaels with 50% coupon) Write on the back of the frame the year and our family name. Gave them to brothers/sisters, grandparents for gifts. They can hang for decoration and use for years to come. Best part you can coordinate with their decor or make holiday/seasonal ones.

      Cool idea!

    -Monthly subscription to something so they get gifts throughout the year (you can buy pretty much anything…. razors from Dollar Shave Club, make-up from Ispy/BirchBox/Glossy Box/Julep, cookies, magazines, beer of the month, etc)

    -Homemade vanilla (requires 3-6 months to make so I start in the summer…. all you need is vodka, good quality vanilla beans, and a pretty glass jar to store it in)

    -Personalized or monogrammed item using vinyl or from a professional company; you can buy vinyl monograms/names for a few dollars on Etsy and apply them to a gift yourself (travel coffee mug, clear umbrella, make up case, hair brush, tablet/phone case)

    -Something fun but disposable, like flowers, fruit basket, cookies, etc (Groupon usually runs specials)

    -Make your own themed basket (movie night, beach trip, date night)

    -If you know the person pretty well and they live locally you can give them coupons for a service that you will provide them (babysitting, house cleaning, lawn care, massage)

      I love the homemade vanilla idea.

  8. Brenda

    I buy them something for their pets!

  9. Tara

    Scratch off lottery tickets, especially ones that take longer to play a game

  10. Laura

    I made a progressive date for my brother and his wife- included funds for dinning and the specific activity I had planned for them to do that night.

    I made elderberry syrup this year. It is an old fashioned, natural “medicine.” I need to do one more batch. It tastes so much better than cough syrup and I think it works just as well. I even used raw, local honey so it will help with allergies too πŸ™‚

    I also made some chocolate syrup, first time and tried the remnants over ice cream tonight. Took maybe 10 minutes, but it is HEAVEN! Google “5 minute chocolate syrup homemade living frugally.” It takes longer than 5 min to boil, but still pretty quick and used (cheap) ingredients you probably have one hand. It’s virtually fool proof.

    Peppermint sugar scrub is great too. 1 part coconut oil to 8 parts sugar and add some peppermint oil to your preference. Divide. Dye half pink. Layer. Voila!

    • Minion

      Yummy to all these ideas!

  12. kara

    food they haven’t tasted

  13. JES

    I love to give things such as speciality olives, jams, pasta, spice rubs and mixes, drink mixers, sauces, etc. Everyone eats and I love to give them gifts that they might not buy on a normal basis and it’s not your normal sweet confections.

  14. LauraL

    For an older relative, scan all their old pictures and repair any that lost their coloring.
    Give them a hard copy in a nice Shutterfly type book or blow a few up into posters.
    Then give them a file they can send to all their relatives.

  15. Es

    I am one if these ppl which I feel fortunate to have been blessed and count my blessings thanks to this site! I love getting handmade things as they come from the heart and I like gift card to my favorite places or restaurants!

  16. Aimee

    I bought Omaha Steaks from Groupon for the ones who are hard to buy for. I picked them up at the store so I saved on shipping as well!

  17. Michelle

    This year, I’ve been DYING for someone to do homemade Chex mix! It’s so much better homemade, but mine never turns out! πŸ™‚ my cousins got me a “Bobcat in a Box”. I’m not quite sure what I’m in for, but they said I’ll get a random $1 present each day for a month. (A little nervous, won’t lie! But it might be fun for someone that likes to get mail.)

  18. Lisa

    A subscription box. That way, they can get something every month. I like Julep: http://ow.ly/WfEit but you can get whatever your recipient likes.

  19. Ami

    Ok… I am one of those impossible to shop for folks. How about car wash vouchers from the local car wash or car washing supplies, gift card/voucher for mani/pedis, gift card to a favorite store attached to an small item from that store (so technically it’s still a gift and not necessarily just a gift card), groupon for a cooking class/wine tasting, spa products from Bath and Body Works, movie tickets and candles.

    Buy chickens, goats, cows, etc for villages in our world who are poor and starving.
    Donate money to a local charity.
    Give money to the recipients church.

  21. Monica

    Lotto ticket. $1, $2, ,$3, $5, OR $10

  22. Holly

    Yankee candles, almost everyone even single guys sometimes burn candles. Bath & Body hand soap- everyone needs to clean their hands in their house! Lottery tickets, movie passes, picture frames, gift certificate to Amazon, fancier chocolates or redbox gift certificate. My best friend two years ago got me a 6 month subscription to Netflix! Great gift!

    I gifted my daughter’s preschool teachers Starbucks gift cards. My Starbucks ran out of gify card sleeves and boxes but instead gave the little red drink cups and tops. I put a green bow on top, wrote their name and checked the custom option with my daughter’s name next to it. The teachers loved it. They thought it was so cute.
