What do you give someone who has everything?

I get it! I’ve been there. It feels impossible when you want to give someone a gift, but can’t figure out what to give. What are the best gifts for Grandparents who have everything?

It’s not that you haven’t thought about it. It has been in the back of your mind for the last few months, but they already have everything they need.

Gifts for impossible family members

You might have several ideas, but you keep coming up with reasons that these things just won’t work for them. Even they have a difficult time buying things for themselves. 

If they’re anything like my parents, they might spend weeks researching the item through Consumer Reports. Next, they buy different types of the item and test them to see what they like best. When they finally figure out what is the best for them, they will finally buy what they need in multiples if necessary.

Basically, they buy everything they need and they don’t like to keep a lot of clutter around. So, it really is impossible to find the best thing for them. 

Gifts that they actually want and/or need

Have you kept track of things they might talk about needing or wanting? Have you noticed small things that might make things easier for them? Or technology that might automate something they do regularly
