5 GIFT IDEAS FOR THE TOTALLY UNGIFTABLE
All of us have that friend. The girl with amazing taste who just seems to effortlessly have it all. Of course, this is a crazy good thing – until gift giving season. What can you get for a girl with everything? We know!
The secret is to stop thinking about what she “needs” and start thinking about she “wants”. Here’s what we mean, broken down step-by gift-savvy step.
1) TAKE YOUR CUE BY OBSERVING HER PERSONAL FASHION STYLE
Since she’s a good friend, you know her well. Probably better than you think. So, reflect on her personal fashion style. Is she a no-fuss dresser? Does she wear the latest trends? Is she modern-inspired? These insights are your guiding light. Match that personal taste with retailers that fit her style and start shopping (oh, and move on to point 2).
2) THINK TOPICALLY. WHAT IS SHE INTO THESE DAYS?
Do a little Facebook or Instagram research to uncover her latest interest. What is she posting about? Tuning in can turn you on to the perfect gift clue you’ve been needing.

3) LET “SEARCH” DO THE WORK.
When you’re online shopping, start your search off with a price point in mind, and use this to “sort” merchandise. This can help eliminate a lot of unnecessary considerations, while also opening up new ideas that you may not have discovered otherwise.
4) CONSIDER SOMETHING THAT’S A SERVICE—NOT A PRODUCT.
Is she a girl who loves experiences? Or has she been extra stressed or short on time lately? Maybe a thing isn’t the answer. Consider service-based gifts that save your friend time – and money.

5) GO THEMATIC—AND PERSONAL.
Take the pressure off yourself for finding that one perfect idea. Instead, think about a “theme” and package up a collection of smaller items that all have the same feel. You can even mix items with gift cards. Complete with a pretty presentation, this is a great way to get extra personal and show some thoughtfulness. Isn’t that what gift-giving is all about anyway?
