Need help holiday shopping for someone who doesn’t need a thing?

Holiday shopping is hard enough as it is, which is why it’s twice as cumbersome trying to find the perfect gift for someone who appears to have everything. It can be a frustrating experience trying to pick out something for someone who more than likely already has what you're looking to buy. If you often find yourself struggling with gift ideas because the person you’re shopping for has it all, here are some alternative options to consider.

Exotic Trip

Depending on the nature of your relationship, you may want to consider treating your loved one to a paid vacation. While they can most certainly send themselves on a vaca, there’s something quite endearing and delightful about going on a trip you don’t have to pay for. It’ll be even better if you tagged along on the trip. That way you’re not just spending money on someone else, but for yourself as well. When you have everything, life becomes more about the experiences you share with others than actual things. Whether it’s a family, close friend or lover, an exotic trip would be pretty impressive.


No matter the size of your pockets, you can never have too many books. The right book - whether it be for leisure or educational purposes - would be the perfect gift for someone who doesn’t necessarily need anything of much value. They’d also appreciate its simplicity.


If your loved one has a green thumb or just a general love for green decor, try getting a plant for the home. Greenery make for great accessories in the home, not to mention they can live for several years when taken care of properly. Plants help reduce carbon dioxide levels, reduce air dust levels and other pollutants.

Concert/Basketball Game

Instead of a physical gift, wrap your gift in an evening event. Take your loved one to the concert of their favorite musical artist, a broadway play or even a sports game. When you have the world, it’s the moments that matter most.
