Whether you love to shop for gifts or not, you may find yourself scratching your head for ideas on what to get that one person on your list who is hard to buy for. Whether it’s a boss, friend or relative, sometimes you cannot come up with an appropriate gift.

Luckily, there are some creative ideas you can employ to let that person know you are thinking about them on their special day. Take a look at three fun gift ideas that work for anyone, anytime.

1. Gift Baskets

Gift baskets come in all shapes and sizes and contain items that should impress even the most challenging person on your list. With products like flowers, wine, cheese and candy gift baskets, you are sure to find something that will work. Even in those situations where you aren’t confident about their likes and dislikes, the array of options will provide you with plenty of stock from which to choose.

2. Personalized Gifts

The birth of a child is a reason to celebrate, as is a milestone birthday or a family reunion. Whatever the occasion, a personalized item commemorating the event may be a great choice. If you are close to the recipient, you should know enough about likes and dislikes to choose the item and the monogram. Even if you aren’t confident, some products, such as blankets, are a good fit for just about anyone.

3. Gift Cards

You may not love the idea of a gift card, but it may be the right way to go in some situations. No one wants to think that their gift is going to wind up in the re-gifting pile, but it may. If you fear that a gift card is too impersonal, choose a favorite quote or poem to emboss on the card. Adding just a few special words may make all the difference to the recipient.

Special occasions are a time for rejoicing, not stressing. The next time you find yourself in this situation, take one of these suggestions and make life a little easier.
