Sometimes it can be so hard to figure out what to get someone who has everything. If they need something, they usually buy it for themselves, right? Well, this unique gift ideas for the person who has everything list is sure to have something on it they will love!
We all have those people on our gift lists who are so hard to buy for. They seem to have everything. And if there is something they do need, they go buy it. It’s nearly impossible to shop for those people!
When it comes to buying holiday gifts for those folks, I try to think outside the box.
This list of gift ideas for someone who has everything is a combination of gifts I’ve gotten for those people in the past or am getting for them this year. There’s a little something here for everyone – personalized gifts, practical gifts, unique gifts and more.

What to Get Someone Who Has Everything
Custom Pet Artwork
While most people have plenty of photos of their pets, most don’t have a gorgeous piece of art depicting their pet. To have the portrait done, all you usually need is a photo you can send to the Etsy seller. I’m willing to bet you can pull one of those from your gift recipient’s Facebook page. If you can’t though, I have complete faith in your stealthy undercover snap-a-photo moves. Find out more about getting custom pet artwork here.
Custom Family Art / Custom House Art
Get a family portrait done in a different way – have it made into a one of a kind art piece. This is a fun twist on the traditional family portrait and a great way to make sure everyone is smiling! haha! Details on family art here.
I will never not include a custom home portrait in my gift guides at least once every holiday season. These babies are just too good not to mention. We’ve now given multiple people custom home portraits and they are always a hit and often bring a tear to an eye. All you’ll need is a photo of the house you want the portrait for. While giving them a portrait of the house they are in is always a great idea, you can also think outside the box – like their childhood home, the first house they started their family in, their grandparent’s home, etc. This will be something they will treasure for a very long time. Details on the house art here.
The Gift of Cozy – the holidays are the perfect time to spoil them!
Bucket Towel Warmer
I promise they will love you forever for this one! A towel warmer is the ultimate treat for those folks who seem to already have everything. Each time they come out of the shower, they’ll be greeted by a warm and cozy towel – courtesy of you. 🙂 Find this one here.
Minnetonka Women’s Cally Slipper / Minnetonka Men’s Pile Lined Hardsole
One thing I like to spoil people with is a great pair of slippers. They might buy themselves a pair of slippers, but they often won’t splurge on a really great pair that are super soft and cozy and made to last for years. My go-to place for great slippers is Minnetonka.
The Never Fail Gift for Someone Who Has Everything
Happy Moments Gift Card
A night out on the town is always a great gift to give. Even if they already have everything, they still have to eat, right? They can treat themselves to a great dinner followed by a movie or perhaps a little shopping. I love giving Happy Cards because they offer such a wide variety of places to eat and shop with just one card. Another great option for holiday gifts is the Happy Holidays gift card as well! See all the Happy Card options here.
Unique and Useful Gifts
Norman Rockwell Calendar / Custom Photo Calendar
Everyone needs a calendar, right? Two options here and neither will fail you. Everyone loves a great Norman Rockwell print and they’ll get to enjoy a new one every month with this calendar. For family members like grandparents and aunts and uncles on your list, make them a custom calendar complete with pictures of the littles all through it.
Jeweled Cross Medallion Coasters
Currently at just $14, these coasters are a steal. I actually have a set of these myself and adore them. They are gorgeously detailed and very high quality – a great unique gift for folks. Find them here.
Legacybox is one of the coolest things I’ve found. You send them all your old family photos, slides, VHS tapes, anything like that and they digitize it for you. This is a really great gift for your family members or friends who are family history buffs or just lovers of old family photos and videos. You can find Legacybox on Amazon.
Amazon Echo Dot
When we got our Echo Dot, I fell hard and fast. This thing is just a little gem. You can ask it to look something up for you, add items to your grocery list which it can sync to your phone, tell it to play Eric Church, The Little Mermaid, or whatever your little heart desires and it will do it. It’s flat amazing. Find the Echo here.
Spring in Central Park Umbrella
Umbrellas should be pretty and functional. That’s why I love this one. I actually have it myself and it’s never failed me. This umbrella is compact, so easily fits in a handbag and is great for travel, but is big enough to cover me, the hubs and kid and is sturdy as well. Find it here.
The MET Masterpiece Paintings
If they are an art lover or would just enjoy taking a jaunt through The MET via their own sofa, then get them this book that contains the most iconic and greatest paintings that The MET has. It has gorgeous, color illustrations of each painting from countless different time periods.
Unique Gifts They Can Adorn Themselves With
Statue of Liberty Neckerchief / Tiffany Irises Scarf
I love a great scarf and these two are no exception. Not only would the Statue of Liberty neckerchief be beautiful adorning the neck or handbag of someone, but I also think it would be beautiful framed. We actually got the Irises scarf for someone on our gift list last year and she loved it!
Something Unique and Lucky
I’m not a cat person, but even I think this cat is fun! This beautifully painted ceramic cat has a raised left paw to to bring good fortune in their home. It comes in multiple different color options. Find it here.
Gifts that Nod to Home
State Pillow / State Towel
Give that hard to buy for person in your life a pillow or towel showcasing the state they live in, their original home or where they attended college. Find the pillow here and the towel here.
Fresh Specialty Oranges
I’m not crazy. My grandfather, who had everything he could possibly need, received the best oranges for Christmas as a gift one year. We both gobbled them up and I’m not even an orange person.
