Most people have at least one person on their Christmas list that is very hard to buy for. Either they already have everything they want, or you simply have no clue what they could use. Below are two ideas on some things they may enjoy, depending on how much you want to spend.
Instead of going to the jewelry store to pick up a necklace, ring, earrings, etc., consider doing things a little different, and buy this person some antique jewelry. You do need to be careful, however, because you want to make sure the jewelry you are buying is actually antique.
Estate sells are great places to find this type of jewelry. Look in your local classifieds for these sells in your area. If you find antique jewelry at the estate sell, ask the seller if they have a jewelry certification. If they do not have one, you should be able to talk them down on the price. Once purchased, take the jewelry to an appraiser to ensure it is antique. In many cases, jewelry at an estate sell will be legit, as it came from a personal collection.
There also may be a mark on the jewelry. This could be the initials of the jewelry maker, or some type of small icon. It will be very small no matter what it is, so you will have to look very carefully. For more information, contact a company like Rhonda's Jewelry.
Gifts That Keep on Giving
Consider purchasing gifts that this person would receive throughout the year. You could choose a pie of the month club where they will receive a fresh homemade pie once a month. You could make these pies yourself, or hire a company to do this for you.
If your friend is a gardener, ship a different flower to them each month. Choose flowers they can plant in their garden, as well as flower bouquets they can display in their home. This will work well even in the winter, as the Christmas cactus, Poinsettia, Christmas rose, holly, and even mistletoe, are good flowers for this time of year. You can include a packet of flower seeds each month with the flower deliveries. Another idea is to purchase enough movie tickets so they can go see a movie once a month if they enjoy this activity.
These gifts may surprise your hard to buy for person, and they will likely be very pleased with any of them.
