I feel like once fall rolls around, the birthdays start coming through, and my wallet is forever empty.
However, there’s always a few people on my list that are almost always impossible to buy for. Either they have everything they want, or they’re so picky you’re not entirely sure they’ll love what you pick out for them. So today I’ve compiled a small list of gifts for the impossible person to buy for (and hopefully they’ll respect the thought of the gift, if they don’t really like it. Am I RIGHT?)
Personalized goods (from etsy or other one-of-a-kind type of stores)
I find that personalize gifts with peoples initials, truly shows that you put a lot of thought and effort into one’s gift. I love shopping for leather goods on Etsy. A couple of my favourite stores are: Paper Geek MY (for leather journals, scrap books + stationary), Dubu Dumo (for leather tabs for your monthly planner, to neat stickers), and Mr Lentz (for awesome unique looking wallets).
Give a Gyft gift card
Gyft is a new-to-me mobile app (use with iOS, Android and on the web) where they basically pay you to shop, my kinda store! But let’s get technical here for a moment. Gyft allows you to store/send/receive digital gift cards with 200+ stores to choose from (including Starbucks, Target, Amazon and Best Buy). I’m not sure about you buy my wallet is full of starbucks gift cards, and a few other stores. With Gyft you have the ability to upload physical gift cards so it’s always available for you, freeing up precious space in your wallet. I don’t want to be carting around a bulky wallet for me. I’m sure this is a popular feature, when using Gyft.
Put together a basket of sweet treats of what the receiver enjoys. Do they like beer or candy? Pick out some odd-ball beers/candy and put it into decorative basket and voila. What about a new-Mom basket? Have a beauty lover (like myself) on your hands? Go to Sephora and shop the aisles of travel sized beauty products and do the same. It’s an awesome idea if I do say so. I’d love to receive the latter, in case you were wondering. Who am I kidding… gimmie all the candy!
