There are Monday morning board meetings and long family weekends with the in-laws but perhaps even more stressful among the two is shopping for birthday gifts for the hard to buy for. From the artsy, sassy girl with a unique eye for the unusual to those that simply have just about everything under the sun, here are five gifts that they probably have never even thought of but are sure to adore.
Perfect for the hard to buy for in your life, this Roy G. ring is a stunner in 14k gold and Swarovski crystals. It’s artistic appeal goes hand in hand with one of the hottest new trends in jewelry, bold and bright scene stealers perfect for dressing up jeans and her favorite tee. We especially love it’s pretty, floral design perfect for the spring and summer months.
Board games were always popular birthday gifts when we were children but somewhere along the line, we often lose that childlike wonder. Bring back the days of laughing in the den with this grown up, limited edition version of Monopoly. Perfect for the girl who has everything, pass GO and get “shopping sprees” and be put in jail for bad hair days. Instead of hotels, players buy beauty stores that must later on be “stocked”.
My Day Registry carries sentimental birthday gifts that are perfect for hard to buy for who have it all. The company allows you to purchase a date that is special to you such as the date of someone’s birth, a special anniversary or even the date of your first kiss with your wife. You can choose from statewide, national and international holidays depending on your price range. What makes this gift truly unique is that no date is sold twice. You receive a framed certificate of authenticity and editor’s access to your own page on the company’s site where you can upload photos and stay in touch with friends.
New spins on practical items make wonderful birthday gifts for the hard to buy for. Monica Garcia’s vintage rose print suitcase is just the ticket for getting her from Rome to Paris or just to that weekend business trip across state. Either way, this suitcase is sure to make travel bloom bright with fun and style.
Add a little music to their life with the customized Zune Portable Media Player. Choose a system in a bold print to make this everyday essential even more fabulous. We especially like the prints from the Artist Series, which bring a bit of culture and retro-modern flare to a weekly workout or a jam out session in your cubicle. You can also choose to dress up a bright colored Zune with Swarovski crystals made especially for small electronics. These are easily found in many electronic stores and at online auction sites such as EBay and Amazon.
Buying gifts for the hard to buy for doesn’t have to be like pulling teeth. Instead of putting yourself in someone else’s shoes, just think outside the box using their interests as a guideline. Look for that thank you card in the mail soon!
