15 Unique Gifts For the Person Who Has Everything
In our experience, we've found that when it comes to giving the perfect gift, recipients typically fall into one of two categories: they're either incredibly easy to shop for, or seemingly have everything they could ever need, thus leaving us totally stumped on what to give them. This is especially true in longer relationships or friendships, when you've spent endless holidays and anniversaries with a person, only to be left with limited gifting ideas whenever special occasions roll around.
If you (like us) are looking to get a head start on your holiday shopping but struggling to narrow down what to get that person who has it all, look no further than these picks. Ahead, we rounded up the best gifts for people who have everything, with selects that are perfect for all types of shoppers and gifting budgets. From subscription plans to unique coffee table books, these are the universal crowd pleasers that you can get for anyone on your list.
We're particularly obsessed with the plant that requires low light and not a lot of water, so anyone can keep it alive, plus a portable charger that's ideal for anyone whose constantly on the go — and on their phone. They're great gifts that we'd honestly like to receive ourselves, but we'll be generous this holiday season. Keep on reading and consider your holiday list checked off.
