Top 5 Christmas Gifts For The Person Who Has Everything

Are there people in your life who just seem to have everything they want? They’re perfectly content with what they have and have no real interest in getting anything new. If I ask my dad, for example, what he’d like, he just says “I don’t really want anything, to be honest”. My husband is the same. This can make it difficult to shop for them because you know that if you didn’t get them anything, they wouldn’t be happy – and who needs that stress at Christmas?!

So I’ve wracked my brains and come up with these ideas.

Polaroid camera

I’m sure you remember polaroid cameras – instant photos without the faff of all that developing or downloading and these seem to be having a bit of a renaissance – particularly among fans of retro gadgets or scrapbooking buffs.

These cameras are the types that take the picture and immediately develop and print them, allowing them to skip the whole process of having to print them off. They usually come out in higher quality than other images, and can easily help them decorate their place.

Indoor Herb Garden

If they’re more inclined towards cooking or gardening, then you might consider getting them an indoor herb garden. These little things are easy to use and keep up with, and allow people to grow herbs that can be plucked fresh for use in dishes.

This can add a ton of improved flavour to dishes because dried out old herbs aren’t as good tasting as fresh ones.

Invest in art

If they’re an art fanatic, then new art is always going to be a welcome addition.

It may not always have to be something expensive and rare, but it’s certainly something that’s going to make them happy regardless. You’ll want to make sure it’s something that they’re interested in, whether that be sculptures, modern paintings, pictures, and so on. Who wouldn’t love to have an art gallery at home all to themselves?

Either way you should be able to find either the real thing or a simple reproduction at a reasonable price. You could also consider a beautiful coffee table book featuring their favourite artists or a photo album you have curated yourself with family snaps.

Lastly, if they paint or draw why not buy them some good quality art materials, a blank canvas, a new set of oil paints or even an easil?

Help them with the housework

Hard to buy for types might have everything but if they’re still doing chores, then there are still products out there that could improve their life.

If you’re willing to spend a little more money, a robotic vacuum cleaner could take a pretty significant load off of their typical work. There are a variety of different brands with varying prices so make sure you do your research – and be sure that a robotic vacuum would work in their home in terms of layout.

Help them to a decent night’s sleep

Finally, they probably don’t have some kind of sleeping aid. There are simple ways of helping you sleep – such as a weighted blanket – and there are also gadgets that help to block out noise by playing calming nature sounds or white noise. (Very useful for us Tinnitus sufferers!)

Why not buy them a sleep mask to block out the light or even some custom molded ear plugs -very useful if they live in a noisy environment or work shifts.
