Connecting Fashion Around The World
When it comes time to buy gifts, we always seem to have that one friend, family member or coworker that is always hard to shop for. Whether they are the person who has everything or simply someone hard to nail down on tastes or preferences, some people can frustrate even the most seasoned shoppers. Here are 5 fashionable gift ideas that will delight even the most hard-to-shop-for person on your list!
In the tech age, almost everyone has electronics of some kind that they use almost every day. From leather folios for tablets to handwoven bands for a wide variety of smart watches, tech accessories make a great gift for the hard-to-shop-for. You can also find a wide variety of laptop skins to help them show off their unique or one-of-a-kind style. Best of all, tech accessories run from the highly economical to the most luxurious. No matter your price range or budget, you can find fashionable tech accessories for almost anyone.
Whether it’s a pair of vintage cufflinks or stylish earrings, handmade, unique or bohemian jewelry makes a great gift for the hard-to-shop-for. Craft shows and holiday fairs are great places to find unique, unusual and one-of-a-kind items, but the internet is also a great place to shop as well. In addition, when you stray off the beaten shopping path to find something unusual for the hard-to-shop-for person on your list, you may end up finding something unique and usual for yourself or others on your list as well.
This is a particularly great idea for people who love to travel. Small bazaars and marketplaces are excellent places to pick up unique and unusual items. In fact, if you are an avid traveler, it’s not a bad idea to get in the habit of purchasing unique items and setting them aside until the right person to gift them to comes along. We often don’t think about gifts for certain people until the holiday season rolls around. Instead of waiting to find something for hard-to-shop-for people when you absolutely need to get them a gift, you can pick up unique items throughout the year as you find them. Then you always have something on hand for those hard-to-buy-for people!
Scarves, shawls, ties and even unique neckwear such as cravats and bowties can make great unique and unusual gifts. If the hard-to-shop-for person has a good sense of humor or a love of a certain sports team, tasteful ties with a small pattern that show off their love of sports, hot sauce or even cartoon characters can be a great gift that allows them to show some personal flair while still keeping it professional. Fun or interesting socks or unique belt buckles are also great gift ideas for men that still need to keep it businesslike in the office. For women, scarves, shawls or even hats or gloves can make unique and unusual gifts they are sure to love.
If you happen to be a crafty person, making your gifts is always a sure way to make them special. If you don’t happen to have a flair for making your own gifts, however, this can be a good opportunity to support a local artisan or even an artisan in the developing world. The best part about hand-crafted items is that you can have them created specifically with the person who is to receive them in mind.
It may take a little extra effort to shop for a hard-to-shop-for person, but the digital age is making it easier than ever before to find unique, interesting and unusual items. With just a few mouse clicks, you can find items from Africa, Malaysia or even the Smoky Mountains or Pennsylvania Dutch country.
