Buying a Gift for Someone Who Doesn’t Need Anything?

Keywords – Struggling to pick a gift

In most cases, gift giving is not about fulfilling an explicit need.

However, we still want an element of need for our gift receiver. Simply, we want the effort to click.

And, when you know a special person in your life who has everything, the gift giving becomes somewhat of a challenge.

With every Christmas and birthday that goes by, it seems like an increasingly hard mission to find them something they actually want. 

Although they insist on you not getting them anything, we can not help but want to do better. Yes, you might have to think outside the box. But, trust us, it will be worth it. 

So, without further ado, here’s our quick guide to buying the perfect gift for those ‘who don’t need anything’. 

1. Write It Down

Make a list of all their interests, hobbies, and things that define them. Doing so, putting pen to paper, will help you narrow down your gift ideas. 

Failing that, cast your mind back over the last few months and try to remember whether your loved one has experienced a meaningful life event. Say, for example, graduation? In this scenario, a personalized photo frame with a picture of them in their cap and gown might be appreciated. 

Or perhaps they have just got engaged? If so, a set of Mr and Mrs mugs might do the trick. (You get the idea. Now tweak it to your needs). 

2. Do Your Research

This is more specific than you may think.

By ‘do your research’ we mean, have a look at their social media profiles to see whether they commented or shared a unique product. 

Pinterest is a gold mine for this, for instance. 

See what they have been re-pinning recently? Is there a common theme to the sorts of things that inspire them? (With a little digging, you will find your answer).

3. Make Them Laugh

There is nothing worse than receiving a generic gift.

So, don’t just give them a generic whiskey tumbler. Instead, get a glass with something funny and personalized. 

For example ‘Hands off of Simon’s whiskey‘ or ‘Karen, save water and drink wine‘. (This is bound to put a smile on their face!).
