Holiday shopping can be a daunting task, especially if your loved ones appear to be set on everything they could possibly need! But fret not, this holiday season you can get them a little something fun and out-of-the-ordinary to show you are thinking of them.
This post will give unique ideas for both guys and gals for physical gifts. Everything from wine and board games, to books and hot sauce! However, if anyone would be interested in a list of “experience” gift ideas, let me know in the comments, and I’ll whip one up!

10 Gift Ideas for the Person Who Has Everything
#1 The Wine Lover
Grab your loved one their favorite bottle of vino and a fun wine stopper to go with it. You can get really creative with wine stoppers! Do they have a favorite place they’ve traveled to? Get them a customized map wine stopper! Do they love to golf? How about a golf ball wine stopper? Lover of cats? Get a funny cat wine stopper!
- Another option, get them a wine subsciption! Cratejoy has tons of great options and Winc is also a popular wine subscription service.
#2 The Long Distance Family Member or Friend
If your family member or friend doesn’t live nearby, get them a little something to show you’re thinking of them – despite the distance. These maps can be customized for states or countries, no matter where you are in the world. You can also choose from a variety of different prints and sizes and even wrapped canvas. I have personally ordered from this store for a gift, and I had a really good experience!
#3 The Competitive One
Whether it’s a twist on a classic or a new game, like Babies vs. Bears (haha, seriously!), or “Game of Phones“…board games can make great holiday gifts. Or you can even get them a personalized board of their favorite game, such as a personalized cribbage board. Be sure to give them early in the night, too, so you can test them out while everyone is together for the holidays! (Check out some quirky ones, here.)
#4 The Fisherman/Woman
You may not be an expert on fishing poles and lures, but you can still get your friend who loves to fish a gift right up their alley! With a variety of gear available, get a gift pack filled with goodies they’ll use on their next trip! Whether you opt for the straw hat (my husband’s personal favorite), a stocking cap, face shield or moisture-wicking shirt – a gift pack from SA CO is the way to go! (Click here to check them out.)
#5 The Craft Beer Fanatic
There is nothing a craft beer lover loves more than trying out new beers! But, what’s even better, you can have these craft beers delivered right to their door throughout the year! Craft Beer Club has a variety of packages to choose from and delivery is free. (However, you do need to be home with your ID to claim the beer. The post office won’t just leave it on your front porch.) I’ve used Craft Beer Club for gifts in past years and really loved their service (and beer selections). Click here to check them out.
#6 The Makeup Maven
Likewise, if your loved one is all about trying the latest and greatest makeup and beauty products, gift box subscriptions like Birchbox or Play! (by Sephora) can make great gifts. 1.) You don’t have to know anything about makeup yourself – these companies do the work for you. 2.) Your loved one will get products delivered right to their door to test out.
#7 The Cook
Depending on your cooking friend/family member’s taste…there are so many fun cooking accessories out there! For those on the sentimental side, get a personalized cutting board, bowl, mixing spoons, etc. Do they have a sense of humor? Check out these goofy cat measuring cups or dinosaur cookie cutter set!

#8 The Coffee Lover
I’m a firm believer that a coffee lover cannot try too many different brews of coffee or have too many coffee mugs, haha. This merlot-infused blend sure sounds interesting, especially paired with a fun mug!

- Bean Box is also a great coffee subscription service to give as a gift!
#9 The Workaholic
Got a friend or family member who lives at the office? Get them a little something to make their desk interesting! Whether they need to relax with a zen garden or game, or could use a chuckle with a funny plaque or tape dispenser, there’s a little something for everyone one out there!
