Q: Gifts for people who have EVERYTHING!

This time a year especially is rather hard to find the right gift for those of us who have to shop for "people who have everything or want or need nothing"! I like gift cards as who would say no to a gift card? Any other ideas? I so am not crafty so making something is out of the question! :) I could try to bake ..lol!

Of course it depends on your budget, but here are a few ideas:
- Tickets to an event/show
- A personalized/antique picture or art piece
- Lessons (eg. dance, cooking, art, driving, etc)
- Music / movie that means something to both of you
- Homemade and/or personalized item
- Hot air balloon ride or sky diving trip
- Gift card to a place they like, but don't usually afford
- Baked good/desert
- Night at a bed & breakfast
- A website
- Board game (a keepsake classic, or a less well known one)
- Club or membership (could be anything from guns to breakfast)
- eReader/web tablet (these aren't that expensive anymore)
- Spa services/massage
- Scrapbook
- Group or individual portrait session
- Your time (do something with them)

Don't think of just things to give, but also places, people and activities. The gift of an event or activity with loved ones can be more memorable in the long run.

I think magazine subscriptions are a nice idea too. Got one last year, and each month when I get the magazine, I think about that person who gave it to me.

How about you engrave something for them, like a sweater or a plaque?

I agree with carpedium's comment above. I would go with the Automatic Wine Opener. I have bought it for all my inlaws as well(yes they have everything!..well almost!). They really love it!
