Some people already have everything. It might be your mom who already buys herself everything she needs or your father-in-law who you end up buying the same present every year. For these people, you need to get a bit creative and start to think of gifts outside of the box.
A card caddy – for someone that likes to send cards and has pen pals all around the world, a card caddy is a wonderful gift. Follow it up by sending regular cards and take some time to write them. A card is one of the best things to receive at any time, as they take that much more care and attention to write compared to a text or email.
Wine gift baskets – if you’re trying to buy for someone that enjoys a glass of wine, then a wine gift basket is the ideal gift. Try visiting https://www.gifttree.com/v3/wine-gift-baskets to get some initial ideas. You could also get them a wine subscription from a company like Naked Wines, which can send a box of wine every month.
Offering to help around the house – regardless of how much money you have or put into a gift for someone, this could be one of the best things you can do for someone. If you’re especially strapped for cash and don’t know how to make someone feel better, offer to help around the house or do yard work. For someone that feels under the weather or is unable to keep up with the housework, this will make their day.
A quick clean of the house or sorting out the garden may only take a few hours of your time, but a
clean house can make someone feel so much better. The feeling that the house is getting dirty, but being unable to do anything about it yourself may add more stress to someone that’s already feeling down. Taking just a few hours to help may actually make someone recover faster, and will make them feel just as happy as if someone had spent $100 on them. Order some delicious chicken from KFC food delivery, and get it sent to their house.
Animal therapy – if you have a pet and you know that your loved one likes animals, visit them!
Having animals around can make people feel much better, and just a quick visit may make someone’s day. If you don’t have a pet, you may be able to rent one, or if the person you’re trying to cheer up can leave the house, try taking them to an animal cafe. These have become very popular over the last few years and are a fantastic day out.
New headphones – if you’re looking to buy a get well gift for someone that likes music, then a new pair of headphones could be the perfect gift. If they are active and like to walk or go to the gym, a pair of Bluetooth wireless headphones will mean that they can work out and listen to music at the same time when they are feeling better. If they like to listen to music while they sleep, try gifting them with some SleepPhones. These are designed to be worn as you go to sleep and are comfortable regardless of what position you sleep in. These can help someone get a better night’s sleep and speed up their recovery.
A new pack of ties – if you’re looking for a gift for your boyfriend, husband, or any other man in your life, a new tie is a great choice. Depending on their sense of style and humor, you might want to pick something classy or something a little more interesting. Try a tie covered in race cars or superheroes, depending on what they are into. If you really want to bring back some traditional style, try for a bow tie. It’s a classic look that will come in useful on the next occasion they go to.
A set of collectible coins – this is a perfect gift for the collector in your family or friend group. Coin sets are both collectible and a great item to display. They often come as limited editions that can become collector’s items and come in packaging that’s just as nice, making this an excellent gift for anyone.
Movies on demand – for anyone that’s a film lover, the price of the cinema can be the only thing holding them back. Try to find their local cinema and purchase them a gift card for a few films on you. Some cinemas also have monthly subscriptions for unlimited movie viewing, which may make anyone that likes to see every new film happy for the rest of the year!
A new comic – if you have a friend or member of the family that loves all the new superhero films,
then why not get them a new series of comics? This is where the genre began and will give them a
chance to experience new stories with their favorite characters. Comics extend beyond superheroes,
though. For anyone that might be interested in comics or graphic novels, try gifting them with anything by Alan Moor or Y: The Last Man by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra. If they like zombies and the Walking Dead shows, then this is also based on a trendy graphic novel that would make a great gift.
A custom mug – if you need a gift for someone in the office, a new mug is a great choice. It’s something that they will use every day and give a little bit of joy every time they have a drink. There are lots of companies and websites to get almost any mug you can think of, from printing someone’s face onto the front of it to mugs with no handles for rock climbing enthusiasts.
Getting them organized – if you’re buying for someone that’s notoriously unorganized, get them something to help out! If their gym kit is constantly spread around the house, get them a new gym bag. If they have golf clubs all around the house, maybe they need a new golf bag. Check out the website Everything in Its Place to see every type of organizational item you could ever need.
