Gift Ideas For People Who Are Hard To Buy For

by Eden on December 17, 2012

There are certain types of people that are just really tricky to find holiday gifts for.

In the spirit of inspiring you to give something to those hard-to-buy-for people in your life, I’ve created a short guide to help you:


1. Ex-boyfriend/girlfriend

Gift Idea: Mono

Yep, nothing like a good ol’ disease that you can totally blame on whoever they’re hooking up with now.

NOTE: you will randomly have to make out with them at a party or something in order to give it to them…oh yea, and you’ll also need to get mono yourself. Hey, I never said these were excellent ideas. Or just get them the toy below:


2. Your  Crush

Gift Idea: NOTHING!


Don’t get them anything.

Ladies: men l=like to chase and you don’t want to seem desperate.

Men: girls tend to like jerks, so this is a subtle way of doing it.

Plus, its recession friendly.


3. Any young girl between the ages of 3-10

Gift Idea: Pole Dance Doll

Honey Boo-Boo is all the rage.

Trust me, that little girl in your life will love you forever if you tuck this under the tree.


4. Any Attention Whore in Your Life

Gift Idea: A Panda

We all know someone in our life that is all “look at me! Pay attention to ME! Retweet me! Like me!!!!!”

So to them, give them a gift that has nothing to do with them.

Adopt a Panda in their name (or any endangered animal).

It’ll remind them that they aren’t the only people in the world that need attention and it’ll give Pandas some bamboo or whatever.


5. Your Really Really Rich Friend

A College Kid

Adopt them a college kid.

It’s like adopting a panda for that attention whore friend of yours.

They will send the college kid money, and the kid could send them updates about their progress.

Or maybe, just give that really rich friend of yours an old fashioned hug.


Because some people are so rich, that all they have is money.



Who are the people in your life that are tricky to buy for? What do you get them? Any suggestions for the kind of people I mentioned?

My boyfriend and my brother are so hard to gift. I guess because I love them deadly and I don’t want to give them whatever. And they have money; but when I start complaining they both go Dwight Schrute meme. I’d write what I give them but my bf reads your blog…

All the guys in my life are so hard to buy for, they either say they don’t want anything, or want things I can’t afford. I usually end up buying them food because you can’t go wrong with that.
And if anyone has any really rich friends I’m a poor college kid available for adoption. Just putting it out there.
