Gift Ideas for Hard-to-Buy-For People


There is nothing better than seeing the smile on someone's face when they open a thoughtful gift. Finding the perfect gift for that hard-to-buy-for person on your list can sometimes be a chore that ends with a gift card. Show off your perseverance and creativity by finding a unique gift to please that difficult person on your list. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Personalized Portraits

  • A humorous gift that will take him by surprise, have artists digitally re-create a classic portrait to hang in a den or office. Transform the woman you are shopping for into Mona Lisa or any number of other classic fine art subjects via digital processing. A couple or a single person will enjoy seeing their faces in the "American Gothic" painting or as the subject of "Girl With a Pearl Earring."

For the Book Lover

  • Voracious readers are sometimes hard to shop for. Gift cards usually fit the bill, but they don't have that personal touch a thoughtful gift requires.

Covered with small reproductions of banned book covers, the bracelet states, "I Read Banned Books, " ideal for the free-speech enthusiast.

For Seniors
