8 Gifts for Your Friend Who Has Everything
We all have that one friend. The one who is impossible to shop for because they already have everything. The latest trend in boots? Have it. Newest technology for their iPhone? Check. All the bangles they can fit on their forearm? Yep. Got it. And while that’s all well and good for them, it certainly makes things difficult for the friend who prides themselves on their gift-giving abilities. There are, however, a few standbys that even the girl who has everything will appreciate, and we’re listing them out below.
- Concert Tickets
Can’t go wrong with concert tickets. Do a little digging and find out when your friend’s favorite band will be in town, and surprise her with a night out to rock out. You’ll get a great night out of it too and an experience to go down in the books.
- A Spa Day
Another treat you can never have too much of, give your friend the gift of relaxation with a spa day. Choose the service for her or let her decide what she’d like — a massage, manicure, pedicure or combination — and let her enjoy some time away from the daily grind.
- Personalized Beer Growler
Give them the gift that keeps on giving and personalize a beer growler. The engraving options are up to you — their name, an inside joke, funny beer pun, whatever. From there, choose from the selected beer options and voila: a gift they’re guaranteed not to already have. Maybe beer’s not their style? Not a problem. Personalize a wine bottle instead.
- Custom Anything
If the alcohol route isn’t for them, sites like etsy.com were created with custom work in mind. You’ll find anything from shirts and jewelry to home decor signs and frames, and it doesn’t stop with etsy. Multiple sites are dedicated to custom design and one is bound to have exactly what you’re looking for. The best part of a custom present is it’s truly meaningful and shows you put serious thought and effort into finding the perfect gift. It doesn’t have to be anything major, something as small as a keychain still shows you care.
- Wine Tasting
True wine (or alcohol) lovers are always up for a wine tasting, so take them out for night of free drinks and fun with you.
- Gone With the Gin
A book about alcohol with a Hollywood twist, this makes for an interesting read as well as a good coffee table book, and one that they likely won’t already have in their collection. Throw in a night dedicated to trying out the different concoctions and you have yourself a unique gift they’re sure to love.
- Virtual Keypad
If your friend is at all techie, this virtual keypad is absolutely the coolest. Using the magic of laser technology, a virtual keyboard is projected on any flat service and connects to your smartphone, laptop or tablet using Bluetooth technology. It’s the keyboard of the future, and it could be one of the best gifts you give this year.
Though they may appear to have everything, chances are there’s something your friend’s bar is lacking. For example: perhaps they have regular drink shaker, but do they have a Boston shaker? They’ll need both to have a truly stocked bar, so pick one up before they realize what they’re missing. Or maybe they’re short a citrus juicer or champagne stopper. Throw a couple of those in too and create a custom bar kit.
Your music loving friends will love you forever if you present them with something from Vinylify, which presses custom playlists into vinyl. You can upload your own tracks, design your own cover and sleeve yourself, or give them a voucher so they can create their own. It’s the ultimate gift for anyone who still longs for the days of vinyl, and a great way to deliver a truly one-of-a-kind gift.
Stick to this list and you’re sure to find something memorable for even the trickiest to shop for friend.
