It’s the giving season

November 28, 2015

When someone’s hard to buy for

Everyone’s got that hard-to-buy for person on their holiday gift list, right?

Going over my own list, I realized that I just couldn’t think of what to give a certain person in my life.

Nothing seemed to fit.

And then, I found the perfect gift:


Problem solved.

<evil holiday grin>

If you had nothing else to give a hard-to-buy-for person, what would YOU give?

  1. A donation to a charity in their name? An AMEX gift card? A book on how to get a life? Not sure.

    I am notoriously bad at gift giving. I know this is the love language that some like to receive and others like to offer. This idea of giving people the heebie-jeebies appeals to me! No one has given me a thank you card yet, but I think I’ve delivered a personalized version of this gift to several people. Thanks for giving me an out!

    Hi Carol,
    My husband is impossible to buy for. He wants something, he jut goes and gets it.

    I chuckled at the “heebie geebies” – love it! Well, for someone difficult I usually get a nice gift certificate to a store or a restaurant that you know they like! But… I may be the wrong person to ask – because I just LOVE opening gifts – I often don’t even care what inside (although I’m generally not picky and love most presents I get)

  5. I love a surprise ending – especially one that cracks me up!

  6. Funny!

    I have a few whom I don’t know what to give each year. Food gifts usually end up being what they receive, things such as gourmet peanut butter for the peanut butter lover or sauces of various sorts for the griller. Everyone loves food, right?

    Hahaha, I love this. If I am stuck for a gift idea I often try to find something humorous. Or food. 🙂

    This is the reason why I’m thankful we no longer exchange gifts. Some people are ungrateful even when it’s the thought that counts. 🙂 I love your idea!

  9. Laurel Regan says:

    Love it! Something for the person who has everything, LOL!

    I saw this DIY idea on Pinterest (of course) you inflate a sandwich bag, attach a little homemade tag to the top “A Bag of Nothing”!

    I’m not opposed to giving cash! “Here buy yourself some lunch” haha

    Ha ha ha! That is hilarious. I’d love to give that to my secret Santa recipient. At a loss for ideas otherwise 😉
