How to Shop Gifts for People Who Have Everything?

Still struggling to shop gifts for that person who already has everything? If useful gifts don’t seem to appeal to them, it’s always a good idea to go the sentimental route. When you design photo gifts with their favorite memories, you can’t put a price on making their memory come to life again. A custom photo book is always one of the best ideas because it doesn’t take up too much space – if you’re gifting for someone who has a strict home decor style, they can always add the photo book to their bookshelf without worrying about how it looks with their other decor.

For useful gifts, take the time to think about who they are and what they like to do. If they’re an athlete or sports fan, they’re sure to have all the equipment they need. Yet, making a custom hoodie for them to use while they’re working out will stand apart from anything they can get from the store. The same goes for most hobbies, like cooking and baking. Creating a personalized gift they might not need will always be appreciated since it’s something unique and special to them. If all else fails, you can always give them a gift card to Shutterfly. Gift cards might not seem as meaningful, but they truly mean a lot to the person who then has the freedom to create their own products.

More Tips for Custom Photo Gifts

Whether you’re gift giving for birthdays, weddings, weddings, or other occasions, Shutterfly’s photo gifts let you customize as needed. Before you design your gift, consider who will be using it as well as where it might need to be within the home. You’ll want to customize a gift that looks great for the person you’re giving it to, not just your own personal preferences. Use these tips below to make sure you’re designing and giving gifts that everyone will love: 

      • Include their current style – If you’re gifting any type of accessory or home decor, make sure you’re matching their style. If it’s something they’ll be using often, you want it to be in the same colors and designs that you see them wearing or using throughout their home.
      • When in doubt, keep it small – If you’re struggling with choosing a gift, you can always err on the smaller side of things to make it more useful. Gifting a large poster print is great when you know what they’ll love, but a smaller tabletop picture or other gift would be just as nice for the person who already has plenty of wall decor.
      • Ask for help – Don’t hesitate to ask for help when it comes to choosing or designing a personalized gift. Ask the recipient if they’ve had their eye on specific items this year, or get their input on patterns and colors they love. You can always ask other loved ones close to them to get their advice as well.
      • Use what they love – If you’re creating photo gifts, use photos that you know will make them smile. Photos of kids, pets, and family memories are always a great option. If your friends, pull out some old photos they may have forgotten about. They’ll always love seeing their favorite memories!
