Everyone knows that one person in their lives who’s impossible to shop for—the latest thing? They already have it. Finding a meaningful gift they’ll genuinely like can be challenging. But it’s not impossible.
Next time it’s gifting season, for a birthday or a holiday, save yourself some stress. Try one of these creative gift ideas instead, sure to please even the loved one who has it all.
1. Wireless Charging Phone Cases
Wireless charging is the next big thing for handheld devices. Users can charge their compatible phones, earbuds, and other devices just by placing them on the charging mat! There’s one catch—unless your case supports wireless charging, you must remove it every time you want to use the charger.
Now, Apple has made wireless charging technology that is compatible with certain types of cases! For example, a compatible iPhone 14 Pro Max case will support MagSafe, Apple’s super-safe wireless charging platform. These cases make great gifts—they’re unconventional presents that make someone’s day a little more convenient.
2. Hobby Kits
What do you get for the person who has everything? How about a new hobby? Hobbies are fun and can be deeply meaningful. Also, having a hobby can be a great way to relax and support your mental health!
You can find hobby kits at prominent retailers and art and craft stores. There are many kinds to choose from: candle-making kits, embroidery, woodworking, and beer-making kits, to name a few. There’s something for everyone; don’t be afraid to think outside the box!
3. An Experience
Sometimes the best gift isn’t a gift at all—it’s the memories you make. For the person who has everything, try giving them unforgettable new memories!
You could get them tickets to a play or musical, plan a trip, go to an awesome museum, or even spend the day doing their favorite things! If you want to stick to a budget, try hiking, a picnic, or having an in-home spa day. You can also take pictures during the activity and make them into mementos—another great gift idea!
4. Gift Cards
Don’t know what to get someone? You can’t go wrong with a gift card! Gift cards have gotten a bad rap, but honestly, what’s better than the present you choose for yourself? We’ve all had to feign excitement over a gift we were less than excited to receive. Don’t waste your money—with gift cards, you know the person will get exactly what they want.
You can choose a general gift card like a Visa or Amex that the recipient can use anywhere. Get a gift card from the person’s favorite store for a more personalized approach. You can even treat them to a meal by getting them a gift certificate to their favorite restaurant.
Gift Giving Should be Fun!
Whatever you decide on, remember that gift-giving should be enjoyable for everyone involved. Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box! The last thing you want to do is to waste your money on something they’ll never use.
