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:

Email your receipt to 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.
