Finding the perfect present for a loved one can be a challenging task—and that's especially true if the gift recipient is a man who's "got it all". But we’re happy to say, it’s not an impossible one!
The most important thing when it comes to gift-giving is a thoughtful consideration of the recipient. Start by brainstorming items or experiences that align with your guy's interests. A gift that’s custom or personalized is a good way to make sure it’s not something he already has, or a state-of-the-art, updated version of a favorite gadget is always sure to please. And an experiential gift like a cooking class or trip is a great choice if he's a curious, adventurous type.

What to look for in a gift for a man who has everything
It's all about thinking out of the box. Gifts come in many forms, and for the man who has everything, it's important to be creative (and remember it's the thought that counts!).
While searching for a gift for the man who has everything definitely presents its challenges, it’s not an impossible task. Our tricks of the trade? Start by looking for something that aligns with his interests. From there, narrow it down to an item that is slightly, or totally unusual because it may be something that he doesn’t already have, but will still appreciate. Custom or personalized gifts are another way to gift something meaningful, unique, and that he doesn’t already have. And getting him that new to the market item is a great way to beat him to it before he buys it for himself!
Are there other unique gift ideas for the man who has everything?
Create a scavenger hunt to places that are meaningful to you as a couple. In each location, leave a hint that leads him to the next spot. End the scavenger hunt at a favorite restaurant or with a romantic picnic in the park for a day that he won’t soon forget.
Treat him to an indulgent spa night at home. Turn down the lights and give him a relaxing massage followed by a luxurious bath—for one, or two.
He may have everything, but nothing beats seeing a game in real-time or hearing live music, so tickets to a sporting event or concert are a win!
