Thinking of gift ideas for someone who doesn't want presents is a frustrating experience, and we’ve all been there. It may seem impossible, but with this guide, you’ll discover tons of ideas for gift baskets, experiences and unique presents, even for the person who says they don't want anything.
“What do you buy for a person who doesn’t want gifts?” This is a question we’ve likely all had to ask ourselves at one point or another. Whoever it is that's insisting there’s nothing they need or want, thinking of gift ideas for friends, family and acquaintances who don't want anything can be a real struggle.
Buying gifts for the people in your life is more than just handing them an object, it's a way to express your appreciation. But sometimes all you have to do to honour their wishes while still showing you gratitude is to think outside the gift box.
For a person who has clear hobbies and interests, it’s much more simple to purchase a present. If you need birthday gifts for Dad, and he's always watching baseball or tinkering with toy cars, right there is where you start your search. But for those that are lacking defined hobbies, and don’t spend their time watching television, playing sports or participating in something creative, finding the best gifts for birthdays or holidays can be a bit hit or miss.
If you're searching for gifts for people who are impossible to shop for, look no further than a unique gourmet gift basket. Giving gift baskets for birthdays, holidays or other events is an ideal way to surprise someone of any taste, no matter their interests.
When you go online to gifting websites such as My Baskets, every thoughtful gift basket is certain to have something for everyone. From savoury food to delicious chocolate and candy to Italian wine and cheese, there's a gift basket out there with that hard-to-buy-for person's name written on it.
Sometimes the best gift you can offer someone who says "no presents" is to listen to their wishes. However, a present doesn't always have to be an object or item. If someone important to you is hosting a party and insists on no gifts, show your appreciation by offering to help out with the event. From bringing something to eat or helping set-up or clean-up after, there's so many ways to show your gratitude while steering clear of gifts.
If you're dead set on getting a present in the more traditional sense, one of the best gifts to give someone who truly doesn’t want anything is an experience. Instead of buying a physical present, treat them to a unique activity or fun outing. Whether it's a new dining experience they have yet to try, or something fun and different like an escape room or axe throwing league. There are so many different options for events, activities and incredible experiences for you to enjoy together.
By treating them to a unique experience, you can show your appreciation, create memories and have a blast without going against their wishes. Buy them tickets to a concert or theatre experience or treat them to a night on the town. Throw them a party (no gifts required) so they can celebrate joyous occasions while enjoying what is most important to them: good times and great company.
