A gift is something that should be given with plenty of thought and care — when giving something to another person, it should a meaningful present that you are confident they will enjoy. However, some people can be hard to shop for. How do you buy a gift for someone who already has everything? What do you do for loved ones that won’t tell you what they want? Fortunately, some things make wonderful gifts for everyone and can be given for just about any occasion. If you’re struggling to find someone a gift, here are five great ideas they’re sure to love.

Watches

Whether you spring for a Rolex or choose one of the many My Gift Stop watches available, a watch is a timeless gift that’s every bit as useful as it is stunning to look at. Watches are perfect for men and women, come in all manner of colors and styles to suit every taste and are great for anyone with a busy schedule. Some watches are equipped with extra functions such as a built-in compass, safety whistle and even a paracord wristband. No matter who you’re buying for, your loved one will enjoy using their new watch time and time again.

Flowers

Flowers are a classic way to say everything from “I love you,” to “I’m sorry,”. Elegant, beautiful and available in every color of the rainbow, flowers make great surprises and can easily be delivered almost anywhere. If you’re looking for something more romantic, a bouquet of fresh roses in any shade will do the trick. For a loved one who appreciates long-term investments, consider giving a lush potted fern or a brilliant array of marigolds to fill the windowsill. Don’t forget: flower seeds can be a wonderful present for the gardener in your family!

Gift Cards

One of the best ways to shop for someone who already has everything is to let them choose what they want. With gift cards and certificates, you can give your loved one a day at the spa, a meal from their favorite restaurant or a shopping spree at their favorite stores. There are gift cards available from almost every major retailer in the country, and some offer special discounts during holidays or other certain times of the year. Of course, when all else fails, a general gift card that can be spent anywhere is a sure-fire win.

Tools

Sometimes, the gift of practicality is the most appreciated of all. Tools are excellent for anyone to have on hand — they’re useful for a wide variety of things, come in handy when you need them most and will typically last for quite a long time. Consider giving your partner a fully-equipped toolkit to get things done around the house, or a brand new ratchet set for the car enthusiast in your life. Tools of your loved one’s trade make great gifts, too: cookware for the budding chef, a soldering iron for your beloved tinkerer and painting supplies for your favorite DIYer are all wonderful ways to show your support for their interests.

Perfume and Cologne

For something that’s useful day in and day out, colognes and perfumes are the right way to go. These elegant gifts are available in more fragrances and styles than you can imagine, so you’re sure to find something your loved one adores. Body fragrances smell amazing, are easy to put on before leaving the house and can be kept in a purse or backpack for continued use throughout the day. In fact, perfumes and colognes are a gift that you, your loved one and everyone around them can enjoy!

Shopping for someone you care about should be done with a lot of love in mind. Even if you’re having a hard time finding the right gift for someone, don’t give up — there is something out there for everyone, and these gifts are great for the biggest holiday and the smallest ‘just because’ surprise alike. The gifts you give don’t need to be extravagant or expensive, but they should be given with plenty of thought and respect for the person’s interests. After all, getting a present is nice, but it’s the effort behind it that is truly appreciated.
