Everyone has that one friend who makes gift giving a near impossible task. Whether it is because they are fussy, too easy going, or have literally everything someone could ever ask for, there will always be someone who can be tricky to buy presents for. So what do you do when you are trying to buy something for someone who pretty much has it all? Well, it’s simple: when all else fails, you have to do the unexpected. If you are struggling for ideas, here are a few suggestions of wacky, unusual and downright bizarre gifts that you could buy for that tricky someone.


Handmade gifts

Homemade gifts are the perfect present to give someone, because even if it isn’t the best, they will proudly keep it regardless, as it’s the thought that counts. There are two ways that you can approach the homemade gift. You can either do something which you put a lot of time and thought into, and give them a heartfelt present, made with love, which you know they will treasure forever; or, alternatively, you can go down the route of creating a joke gift, and test the limits of how terrible a present you can make it, and see if the recipient will still pretend to love it. Just for fun, why not go for the second option; You could do anything from painting a Picasso style portrait of your friend, to hand printing a t-shirt for them with your own face as the design. The possibilities are limitless.

Fun yet functional gifts

If you are really struggling to come up with ideas, then try to think of things which might not necessarily appeal to their current interests, but that they still might enjoy having. For example, vaping has become very popular, and even those who don’t regularly vape still have e-cigarettes in their houses in case of a rainy day. For one thing, it can be something fun to use during social gatherings; you could even hold your own mini-cloud chasing contests. Read this vape juice review to find out more about the range of different flavors and strengths you can buy vape liquids in. The good thing about a gift like this is, if you are buying for someone who already owns an e-cigarette, it won’t be hard to buy them new flavor liquids or equipment which they don’t already own.

Toys for grownups

When you run out of ideas for sensible adult gifts, it might be time to revert back to your childhood years and buy them a children’s toy which, while slightly unnecessary, will at least make them laugh. You could go for a box of classic toys and include things such as slinky, silly putty, or Legos. On the other hand, you could go for toys which are manufactured for kids of all ages; after all, there is never an age limit on the fun! For example, a remote-controlled drone is something you can enjoy playing with whether you are aged 5, or 50 years old.

The key to buying for difficult people is always to think outside of the box and go for something a little more unconventional which they can still enjoy.
