Gift ideas for parents who have everything include consumable goods, such as a year's worth of food delivery services or regular personal care appointments for haircuts or massages. Parents are sometimes hard to shop for, so gifting personal services is an easy way to avoid scouring stores for something they may never have the need for or the time to use.
Other gift-giving ideas for hard-to-shop-for parents are gift certificates to a favorite store or decorative stationary, suggests CNN. With a stationery set, parents appreciate the subtle hint that letters from them would be welcome.
It is a good idea to browse around gourmet food stores and home decor shops. These places are likely to have gifts that parents would appreciate or find useful. CNN recommends unique or specialty items such as a herbal bath tea, imported toiletries or a shelf full of exotic spices. These gifts can accompany more personalized items such as an old family recipe or a calendar that is filled out with the names, dates and special occasions of all close family members and friends.
Simply asking parents what they might like may offer surprising or helpful guidance for buying the perfect gift.
