6 Gifts for Someone Who Has Everything
Straining your eyes? You can listen to this automated AI version of the article here:
Whether you’re shopping for Christmas or birthday gifts, you’ve likely experienced extreme frustration associated with trying to shop for someone who seems to have everything they want and need.
While you could go for the classic box of Nestle Milk Chocolate Scorched Almonds and maybe a pair of comfy socks, you can’t help but worry that you’re not quite doing enough. As impossible as it can seem to shop for a spouse, a sibling, a cousin, or a friend, you might find what you’re looking for listed below.
Something Made In New Zealand
New Zealanders make some pretty cool stuff, yet we still spend $1 billion annually on international websites. Where’s the love for Kiwi businesses? Support a business in your community and buy something sold in New Zealand, made by New Zealanders.
Stuck for ideas? Check out the NZ Artisan range at Greenstone Dispensary. Here, you’ll find a variety of homemade, hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind pieces some of your family members are bound to love. And if they don’t? Disown them. (Only kidding).
Even people who are hard to buy for have hobbies. They might just not know about them yet. If you’re truly stuck for gift ideas, consider a DIY kit that gives your friend or family member something to do and allows them to enjoy the fruits of their own labour.
For example, you can now purchase unique kits that come with everything you need to make cheese, gin, bread, candles, and soap. At Greenstone Dispensary, you can also buy gummy-making kits that come with almost everything you need…
Sure, you could just purchase cheese, gin, bread, candles, soap, and gummies pre-made, but where’s the fun in that? Tell them to make it themselves.
Everyone has at least one chain-smoking member of the family who insists on smoking around everyone trying to enjoy their Christmas lunch. Well, if you’re looking for the perfect Christmas or birthday gift for them, consider vape products.
You could be the reason they kick their cigarette habit for good, which is surely going to be a Christmas miracle. Alternatively, you might treat that special someone in your life to a dry herb vape, perfect for those who love…herbs and spices.
Let’s face it; the only reason gift hampers were invented is that most of us have trouble knowing what to buy for our friends, family, and clients. Instead of coming up with a thoughtful gift, we throw together a few grocery essentials and tie a bow on them.
You could definitely go down the route of pre-made gift hampers from the supermarket, but you could also get creative and make a gift hamper yourself with small things you know your loved one will enjoy. You can’t go wrong with chocolate, biscuits, chutneys, a bottle of wine, and maybe a few convenience goods like cleaning products for their smoking supplies and a few spare books of rolling papers for when the local dairy shuts over Christmas.
Sometimes, the perfect birthday or Christmas gift isn’t gift-wrapped and tied with a bow. It’s an experience that forms a core memory you and that person will remember for the rest of your lives.
If you can’t think of an off-the-shelf product, think about fun things you can do together that will be even better than a gift they’ll forget you gave to them six months down the line. Sports game tickets, concert tickets, a booking to go bungy jumping in Queenstown, or a season pass to go skiing could all be some of the options you consider.
Vouchers and Cash
It’s Christmas Eve, and you’ve run out of time to buy a gift. You could turn up empty-handed, but no one wants that awkwardness. Rather than raid your cupboard for that old box of Scorched Almonds leftover from last Christmas, opt for vouchers or cash.
Vouchers can be an ideal option when you know where your friend or family member shops, while cash is king when you’ve got no idea what their interests are or where they even do their grocery shopping. When you give the gift of cash, you’re giving the gift of freedom. They can choose to shop with whichever shops they like, be it us (hint hint) or the supermarket, so they can finally treat themselves to the $20 1kg block of Tasty cheese they’ve been missing out on.
Socks Aren’t Gifts; Choose Something Better
We’ve all given and received some truly awful gifts, but this year is surely your year. Whether you’re buying a Christmas or birthday gift, consider some of the options above and explore our online range of…specialty products. You might be surprised by how quickly you become the favourite gift giver in your family.
