The Holidays are Coming -What Do You Give Someone Who has Everything?

The Holidays are Coming - What Do You Give Someone Who has Everything?
Every year the holidays come and there is that one person on your gift-giving list that you have no idea what kind of gift to give. It's that one person who already has everything and is fairly self-sufficient to get the things he or she needs or wants. While it's true that everyone has something on his or her wish list, it's not always easy to figure out what that something is. If you have a hard target on your Christmas list this year, these are a few great gift ideas to keep in mind.

Gift-of-the-Month Club Memberships

These clubs exist for a wide range of items, mostly consumables. They include everything from books to wine, coffee, cheesecake, beer and more. Most importantly of all, it's a gift that keeps on giving throughout the year. Your mother, grandmother, uncle, or friend will think of you each month as the gift arrives. Other membership groups to consider include those that offer cosmetic items delivered each month (there are several from which to choose) for the fashionista or beauty guru on your gift list. This is an especially great gift for teens and college-aged girls as they include high-end items they wouldn't ordinarily be able to purchase for themselves.

Sentimental Gifts

The gift of heart and soul is nothing to scoff. Create a slideshow of memories, put together a family cookbook of favorite recipes, knit a scarf in your old school colors, frame works of art you've created yourself, or even write a book of poetry dedicated to your friend or loved one. It's a sentimental gift that can't be purchased in stores and no amount of money can buy. You know best, what your talents are. You can create a gift making use of the skills you have to make your friend laugh, cry, or simply feel warm and loved all over every time he or she looks at your gift.

Donate Your Time or Money to the Breast Cancer Society in Honor of Your Friend or Loved One

There are few people who haven't been touched by breast cancer. Whether it's a mother, daughter, aunt, sister, grandmother, teacher, mentor, or friend, almost everyone in the country knows someone who has had breast cancer. Giving the gift of a donation to a charity that takes such as hand's on approach to assisting women who are experiencing breast cancer today is a gift that keeps on giving for your friend and to all the women whose lives are touched by the generous gift you've given in your friend's name. If your friend is someone who would not approve of the idea of you making large monetary gifts in his or her name, consider donating your time in honor of your friend instead. 

There are many ways to give, after all.Gift giving can be quite the challenge in today's high-tech and modern society. However, low-tech gifts like these can put smiles on the faces of your toughest gift buying challenges.
