We all have that friend who is difficult to please on their birthday.
They are the person with a good job, a generous family, and a seemingly perfect
lifestyle. While they might have everything they want or need, it’s still nice
to give them something on special occasions such as a birthday or Christmas.
So, when that special occasion arises, and you find yourself lacking
ideas, we’ve included seven below. These great gifts could end up being the
very thing they needed.
If your friend is equine mad, there’s nothing like a saddle or hoof boots for horses to let them know you care. When you provide a
friend with a gift relating to their hobby, it’s not just the gift that
matters; it’s your thoughtfulness. It means you pay attention to their
interests. Hoof boots help to protect the feet of horses, so you’re gifting
both the rider and the horse.
A gift doesn’t have to be tangible, and nothing says friendship better
than a small vacation. Whether it’s a camping holiday with a group of friends
in the next town over or a quick trip for two by a lake or the ocean, it will
be enjoyed and appreciated all the same. If you’re traveling abroad, the prime time to book airfares is between three weeks and three and
a half months before you’re set to leave.
The average person doesn’t have enough photos of themselves and their
family. If you feel your friend spends more time behind the camera than in
front of it, treat them to a photography session. Find a local photographer and
set up the shoot as soon as possible. If you’re on a budget, opt for a hobby or
student photographer. A professional can cost as much as $75 to $200 per
If your friend has a soft spot for a particular car, why not treat
them to a day of driving in that vehicle? While it would be outrageous to
purchase the car, it’s fine to lease one simply so they can experience it. Who
knows, they could end up falling in love and buying it!
If your friend has a thirst for adventure, you can quench it. There
are many tourist destinations offering passes for a range of adrenaline-rushing
activities. Treat them to rock climbing, ziplining, bobsledding, skydiving, or
a mixture of a few! They will love the rush, and you will love the feeling of
providing them with a gift they can use and enjoy.
If you don’t share a common love of a particular artist or band, can
you call yourselves best friends? In the lead up to your friend’s birthday,
take note of all their favorite bands (and yours), and find one that can
coincide with their birthday. You will become the best friend ever if you treat
them to a night out at a concert!
Magazine subscriptions are not typically something we actively seek
out. However, if you notice your friend has a particular love for a type of
magazine, treat them to a subscription. This small act of kindness will be
appreciated, especially as it shows you pay attention to their like and
dislikes. There are over 7,000 magazines to choose from, so you’re not short
hard to buy gifts for friends who have everything, but it’s not impossible. Put
a little thought into it, find out what they like and dislike, and let your
imagination go wild. You may find that even the thought you put into their gift
is a gift all on its own.
