3 Perfect Gift Ideas for People Who Are Hard to Please

By  |  0 Comments

Birthdays, anniversaries, thank you gifts, the quest for the perfect present can seem never ending, especially when the recipient is a little hard to please. Some people have specific tastes that are hard to cater to; others simply have everything they need. If you lose sleep and valuable time hunting down gifts for this kind of person now is the time to stop – instead of flailing around and getting nowhere concentrate your efforts on finding something that is both a little unusual, and can be either experienced, admired or eaten.

Here are a few ideas to get you thinking.

Give an Experience

When you think about someone who already has everything they need this tends to refer to material possessions, so what better to gift them than an experience? There are hundreds of possibilities to choose from, including a record breaking tandem skydive, 300 feet bungee jumps or climbing adventures for the brave people you know, with more relaxed experiences such as a beer brewing day or a chocolate making workshop for the more sedate. Car fans can enjoy a thrilling racetrack experience, or the chance to drive an American classic car for the day. Whatever you decide on this is one gift that won’t be forgotten in a hurry.

Give an Adopted Animal


The perfect unusual gift for wildlife lovers has to be the adoption certificate for an endangered animal, a gift opportunity offered by international charity Durrell.  A variety of creatures including poison frogs, cute otters, bears, apes, bats and flamingos are featured on the website, and if you are not sure of the perfect match there’s a handy personality test you can take on behalf of the gift recipient that will come up with the most fitting choice!

Along with the adoption certificate each gift package contains a cuddly toy, photo, letter from the animal’s keeper, factsheet, magazine, bookmark, sticker and more. Animal adopters are given access to a Facebook group for up to date progress reports, and are free to visit their charge at Jersey Zoo if they choose to. Add-ons are available for an extra charge.

This is a great gift idea for anyone concerned about animal conservation, or those unable to have a pet of their own around.

Give Luxury Food

Everyone has to eat, so food gifts are always a good choice. For an unusual gift take things one step further by ordering luxury food hamper gifts packed with gourmet items that are not available in the supermarkets. British Fine Foods offer a good range of hampers to suit all tastes. From a classic hamper, filled with claret, liver pate, smoked salmon and fine cheeses, plus chutney, crackers, speciality dried meat and sweet treats, to niche hampers featuring top-end picnic food, port and Stilton or wine and wild boar salami, the contents of each beautifully constructed wicker hamper are guaranteed to delight even the most discerning palate.

Armed with these suggestions you are good for the next several occasions a difficult to please person needs a gift.
