What do you give someone for their birthday if you have no idea where to start and they seemingly have everything??

If the person already has everything, I suggest that you give him something simple but personal. You don't have to buy anything because it will be a waste of your money. You can buy different kinds of fresh fruit from the market, buy a weaved basket and do some decorations on the basket on your own. Use your imagination by putting ribbons, flowers whatsoever. After that arrange the fruits inside the basket and put a little card that you print yourself into the basket. Sign your signature on the card and wish him happy birthday. I think it will be the most expensive gift ever!

Well, it depends on whose birthday it is actually. For me, if it's someone I know or I am close to...then I'd probably write them an honest, thoughtful and sweet letter to them to let them realize how much they mean to me. Maybe I'll write a poem or draw a picture. It would be a good idea to come up with a gift that you can't easily buy...something you make it up yourselve. I hope this helps!

guys, material things dont matter that much! its the simple things we're up to.. it doesnt matter if its the cheapest from the tiangge or anything as long as you remembered his/her on whatever occasion may be.. or you can right her a letter with different designs, i mean appropriate designs actually.. be creative! or you can surprise her with words., gift is not always a thing to be given.. a gift can also be a speech or like if he/she has this thing that isnt working, but you knew she/he really likes using it, you can try doing it a repair or go to a repair shop, then theres your gift already.. efforts are much better than material things.. good day!

I know this isn't a very popular idea, but I firmly believe that somehow, this is a great addition to their possessions. Why not give them a bible? In a way, you're bringing them closer to God and teaching them inexplicitly to thank the Almighty for all the blessings He is constantly showering them. Have fun and God bless.
