If you’re puzzling over what to get for the person in your life who seems to have everything already, you’re in the right place. We’ve put together a sleigh full of creative holiday gifts for someone who has everything—those unique, “why didn’t I think of that?” kind of items. This collection is all about the unexpected, the conversation-starters, and downright cool finds that they wouldn’t have picked up on their own but will undoubtedly bring a smile to their face. Let’s jump into it.

Gifts For Someone Who Has Everything

Poppy & Pout Natural Lip Scrub | $14

They don’t know they need this lip scrub until they’ve tried it. It’s a gentle exfoliant for your lips, made of natural ingredients, and I’ve seen great moisturizing results from using it.

The Jolie Filtered Showerhead | $165

If you didn’t know, the water that comes out of your shower can make or break the health and texture of your hair. This gorgeous shower head (also available in 3 other finishes) filters out all the unwanted chlorine in a high-pressured spray that will leave your hair feeling healthier than ever. (Good for your skin, too!)

Mobile Mini Color Photo Printer | $69

With this wireless mini photo printer, they can instantly print the phone photos that might never see the light of day otherwise. I like to print a few special photos and put them in a glass box as part of their gift. (They’re gonna tear up).

Microfiber Hair Towel Wrap | $21

We all grew up twisting our hair up into a large towel, only to have it unravel 5 minutes later. Gone are the days of using the same towel we dry our body off with to dry our hair—it deserves better than that.

Ooni Koda 12 Pizza Oven | $399

This is THE pizza oven that everyone is talking about. With this, they’ll be able to serve up bubbly, crispy artisan-style pizza made in their backyard in just 60 seconds.

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer | $429

They might have a hair dryer, but I doubt they have this fast-drying, frizz-reducing, supersonic hair dryer. It comes in the prettiest storage case that neatly stores the dryer plus the 5 included attachments.

Winter Forest Hand Soap & Lotion Classic 3-Piece Set | $37

You can’t go wrong with surprising them with an elevated winter-themed hand soap and lotion set. Sometimes, the best thing to gift to someone who already has everything is something with a seasonal scent that they can use.

Box of 15 Macarons | $57

Food is the way to most peoples’ hearts, especially those who are hard to shop for. This box of 15 Macarons comes from Paris’ most famous macaron shop, shipping to the US and I’m dying to get my hands on a box.

Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner | $40

This ultrasonic jewelry cleaner gets rid of dirt and grime you may not even notice is there, and would make a great gift to the person who has it all (especially if they’ve got a great jewelry collection).

Bonfire 2.0 | $224

Have you ever heard of Solo Stove? This fire pit has a patented design that provides a smokeless experience, which is such a game-changer. Not only that, but it also generates more heat than traditional fire pits. And let’s not forget about how beautiful the stainless steel looks.

Christmas Memory Book | $28

One of my most cherished Christmas traditions is opening up this book and recording all of the memories we made surrounding the Holidays. I love preserving these moments, and it would make a perfect gift for any hard-to-shop-for person in your life.

The Body Essentials | $75

This Necessaire 3-pack is my holy grail of body products and is a great way to spoil any person your heart so desires.

Dior: The Legendary 30 | $33

This book would make an incredible gift to anybody who might appreciate the history of the House of Dior and will enjoy flipping through images of vintage fashion or just a gorgeous coffee table book collector. The cover has gold foil on it and it feels very special and luxe.

Weighted Heating Pad | $49

I can’t think of a single person who wouldn’t love opening up and using this weighted heating pad. I think I might just need to get this for myself to help with the neck pain I’ve been having.

Williams Sonoma x Billy Reid Matchbox | $16

This darling little matchbox is so thoughtfully designed, and anybody would be lucky to receive this over the holidays.

Vanity Planet Facial Steamer | $69

Years ago, I sent a link to Chris, who bought me this for my birthday, and it has become one of my favorite self-care items I own. I generally save it for Sunday evenings, and it’s such an enjoyable, nourishing 15 minutes.

looking for inspiration? 

Here’s the crazy thing about me and inspiration: If you were to go into my bathroom inspiration board on Pinterest, there are bathrooms for sure, but there are also kitchens, there are closets, there are mudrooms, and there are hallways of houses! I’m not looking to copy and paste an inspirational image. I’m taking notes […]
