7 Gift Ideas For the Person Who Has Everything

Margaret —  December 7, 2012 — 11 Comments


Do you have a friend, cousin, or spouse who is next to impossible to buy for? Maybe they are the person who has everything. Or they are the return-everything-ers. You just can’t win no matter how hard you try. Don't let their gift keep you from knocking out that shopping list. Here are 7 creative and original gift ideas to buy the person who has everything:

1. A pair of chickens or a donkey. Now I’m not suggesting you pick up some unsolicited backyard pets or use this to subtle call someone a naughty Old Testament reference, but you can easily buy your friend the gift that keeps on giving—to others. Purchase an animal to give to a third-world family through World Vision. Or browse their online Gift Catalog to find something else to give, whether part of a well or school supplies to a needy community.

2.  A copy of Wonderstruck. Worthy Publishing is over $300 of six limited time benefits to anyone who preorders Wonderstruck for the killer price of $7.57 from now until Christmas Day. Learn more, here:

  1. Wonderstruck: Awaken to the Presence of God as an eBook  ($9.99 available on Kindle, Nook, iPad and other formats)
  2. Fourteen Days of Wonder Journal eBook ($19.99 as a download)
  3. How to Hold an Unforgettable Retreat eBook (a $29.99 download)
  4. Pursuing God 14-Day Devotional ($12.99 download)
  5. You will be automatically entered to win a brand new Kindle Fire pre-loaded with a suggested retail value of more than $100 worth of books from Worthy ($259.00)
  6. Ten people will randomly be selected to receive a free audio version of Wonderstruck ($9.99)

Email your receipt to wonderstruck@margaretfeinberg.com and our team will email you a link where you can access your exclusive freebies. A perfect gift for them. With extra goodies for you.

3. Tap into your friend’s inner hipster. Pick up tickets to a local museum offering an extraordinary exhibit for a limited time. Whether breathtaking images from the Hubble telescope or Picasso’s secret paintings, you can score major friend points with this find.

4. Invite your friend to make a splash. What hidden creative talent is waiting to bust out? Sculpting? Drumming? Glass blowing? Painting? Many private art studios have classes aimed for beginners. Local colleges offer multi-week courses for the community at reasonable prices. You may have to be sneaky and take a peek at their calendar to see what courses fit.

5. Give them a pet rock. Before you roll your eyes, we’re not talking about just any rock. Transfer an image of the Eiffel tower, London Bridge, Taj Mahal, or that incredible time you two had together onto a stone for a sophisticated look. Check it out.

6. Cook it up. Check out the schedule at Whole Foods or a local culinary school to learn how to get your Emeril or Rachel Ray on! Register both you and your friend for an unforgettable night of pasta making or break baking. Learn how to become the master of your own wok or create killer’ fajitas.

7. Grab ideas from their online accounts. Check out their Pinterest boards, Amazon Wish Lists, or Svpply accounts. Purchase items they have pinned and listed, but haven’t purchased for themselves.


What do you suggest giving to the person who has everything? We’d love to hear your gift ideas!

  1. The pinterest idea is great!! I just received a jar of M&Ms that I pinned from a student at school. She told her mom–“let’s look on Mrs. Green’s pinterest board and see what she likes!”

  2. Give a dinner and a movie certificate to that special someone who has everything… You can never have too many date nights! Spending time with a special friend or sweetheart is priceless!

  3. OK I just have to chime in here…one of my favorite gifts is coffee from One Cup Coffee Project. http://www.onecup.org/. The coffee is from Silver Cup Roasting in Seattle and is “award winning coffee”…all fair trade sourced and there are lots of interesting roasts and countries of origin. It’s really good coffee! The best part is that through a partnership with World Vision/FARM for every single dollar you spend on One Cup coffee a dollar, yes a whole dollar, goes directly to Zambia to help combat hunger through agriculture. Win- win for sure. Neato gift pack of three coffees in a dandy box is something like $38 and if you buy three packs of coffee (not the gift pack) you get free shipping. They also have a nice subscription service so you can set it up and forget about it and your daily cup of joe will be making an impact. OK end of my plug. Did you miss the link? Here you go… http://www.onecup.org/

  4. I have found that school teachers and Sunday School teachers respond well to having items bought in their honor for schools in other countries. For example, for school teachers we have donated for school supplies, school fees,or teacher salaries through various mission organizations. For Sunday School teaches, purchasing Bibles or children’s resources through missions has been well received as well. And I haven’t found any one who refuses home made gift mixes.

  5. These ideas are great! Thanks for sharing.

    Another great idea is to give the gift of a of monthly subscription box, noticed a lot of those around lately – you can do anything from underwear (always necessary!) to expensive cigars..

    The other thing is give the gift of an ensemble from another part of the world, like trunk club meets tourism..kind of a cool concept – seat14a.com

  6. I’m really inspired with your writing talents and also with the layout in your weblog. Is this a paid subject or did you customize it your self? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare
    to look a great weblog like this one today..
