We all have that one person in our life who’s nearly impossible to shop for: They own everything they could possibly want or need or they’re just too darn picky (that’s the worst!). Shopping for them can be an absolute daunting task, but we’re here to make things a little easier. We’ve gathered some fantastic birthday gift ideas—including consumable treats, subscriptions and small luxuries they may not splurge on themselves—that will surprise and delight even the hardest-to-please recipient.
The coffee drinker on your list may already have a French press or a drip maker they like, as well as all the mugs they’ll ever need and more. Instead, why not deliver them some tasty beans they may not have tasted before. It could be a coffee of the month subscription or perhaps just a few bags to “wet their whistle” and perk their interest.
The person who has everything surely has a computer and phone jampacked with photos that have been relegated to the digital graveyard. Rescue their best snaps with a digital photo frame display that rotates through hundreds and thousands of them. Our favorite from Aura Mason is easy to set up and has a sharp, vivid display. And it works seamlessly on Android and iOS through a proprietary app. Anyone with access to your account can upload photos through the app, and they’ll show up in the frame—a great way to share fresh images with faraway friends and family.
Literature They’ll Love
Delectable Chocolate Gift Basket
Chocolate is always the right gift. But for someone with a more-discerning palate, boring Hershey’s and Dove chocolates simply will not cut it.

You can choose from a variety of chocolates (Godiva, Guylian, Ghirardelli…) and cookies to create a spectacular, one-of-a-kind birthday gift basket.
A Meat & Cheese Gift
The absolute perfect birthday gift for the carnivore/entertainer. With a variety of summer sausages, creamy assortment of delectable cheeses, artisan crackers and gourmet snacks, you’re meat lover will be in heaven. The Charcuterie Gourmet Gift Basket includes three cheeses, 2 scrumptious beef summer sausages, Mediterranean Olives and so much more.
A Personalized Item
If you have someone who is super challenging you to shop for, consider giving them a customized gift. There are SO many to choose from for birthday gifts…for example, you could have a coffee mug printed with their name and birthdate. Other great ideas are custom wine glasses, beer mugs, picture frames, pillows, towels…the list is endless.
