Everyone has a person on his or her gift list that is difficult to buy for.
Many times that person gets a gift card to a large retailer because you can’t think of anything to get them.
The trick is finding out personal information about them, without letting them know you are doing it.
Here are some great gift ideas for someone special in your life:
Suppose your friend either travels frequently or makes many calls on their cell phone. Gifts for them could include gift certificates to their phone provider or a traveler’s merchandise magazine.
If gift certificates don’t do the trick, consider getting them a subscription to a travel magazine. Ask a friend or family member who sees them frequently what type of magazines they have on their coffee table and this will give you a clue as to their tastes.
Find out if that special someone is into sports or a specific sport. Great gift ideas for sports fans include sports merchandise for their favorite team or tickets for them to see a game.
You can really thrill a person who has everything by purchasing them a ticket and travel accommodations to see a final game of the season for their favorite sports team.
Don’t forget the golf fanatic in this category. Golfers love golf themed merchandise from golf balls to USGA jackets. A great idea for golfers is a membership to the USGA or purchase tickets to a USGA golfing event for that special person.
Pets often give clues for that difficult to buy for person on your gift list. Almost everyone has a pet, whether it is a pot-bellied pig or a dog.
Gift ideas include clothing for a pet (make sure that you know the breed of the dog so you get the correct size), pet beds or a subscription to a breed or animal magazine.
Some people like to collect glass or resin miniatures of their favorite breed and these can easily be found on the Internet or at your local retail superstore.
Almost everyone enjoys board games. There are many classic games from Monopoly to Backgammon. If you’re hard to shop for person likes Monopoly you can get them a special version of this popular game, such as Birdopoly or one featuring the town they live in.
Two very popular games is poker and Texas Hold ‘Em and the supplies that you need are inexpensive. You can find card and chip sets for these games at most retail stores as well as on the Internet.
Car accessories are great gift items for those people on your gift list that have everything. Buy a special key chain, monogrammed car seat covers or even a car cover.
Many sports cars have websites that have online gift stores. These stores usually have everything from clothing to miniature cars.
If you have a special gal in your life and you’re not sure what to buy, consider spa gift sets or a spa certificate. There isn’t a girl around that wouldn’t like to spend a few hours being pampered in style. Spa gift sets are also very popular.
You can either buy a spa gift basket that has been pre-assembled or you can gather your friend’s favorite scented bath beads, soaps and gels and make a personalized basket.
Occasionally you may have to shop for someone that doesn’t fit in any of the above categories. In this case one gift that many people enjoy but rarely receive as a gift is a movie theater pass.
There are always movies that people want to see no matter what genre they enjoy. A movie theater pass can be used year ‘round and it fits any gift giver’s budget.
The next time you can’t think of a gift for someone special, try one of these ideas and you may be done shopping sooner than you thought possible!
