The 5 Best Gifts to Get For the Guy Who Already Has Everything

Updated on March 10, 2014

Be Original

A pair of slippers isn’t going to cut it as a gift for him who has everything. Neither will soap on a rope. So where do you turn when you’re out of good ideas? Start thinking of experiences, way out wacky ideas, and off the wall gadgets.

Here are five ideas you can start with when you’re stuck for a gift for that special man who already has it all.


A Piece of a Stadium

As older stadiums are being revamped and remodeled, those seats that are torn out are not going to waste. Many companies have salvaged them and are turning them into everything from personalized cuff links to pens. Grab your guy a piece of history while it lasts. He won’t already have a piece of Yankee Stadium, most likely.

A Star in the Heavens

You can claim a star in the night sky for your beloved. There are billions or stars out there, but none has his name on it... yet. But you can change that when you buy him his very own star in your galaxy.

You’ll be given the exact location of your star on a map of the constellations. You’ll also get a certificate of authenticity. It’s one gift that will definitely last forever.

Do you have trouble finding the perfect gift for your guy?

A Piece of Art

Art is always emerging. Consider discovering a new artist from a local gallery in the style that your guy likes. He’ll be able to start following a new and emerging artist and soon his collection may triple in value. Even if it’s just a painting or photograph that he’ll enjoy gazing at over the fireplace, it will be a lovely addition and one of a kind.

Outback Experience

Send him on an adventure. Has he ridden elephants in India or wrestled alligators off the Nile? Look into exotic vacation adventures and either go with him on vacation or offer to send him on his way. Often, just the suggestion of this type of adventure is enough to whet his appetite for more gifts like it in the future. He’ll have a great time and remember your present forever.

Kitchen Credentials

He may have it all, but he probably doesn’t already have a personal chef. Even if you can’t afford to hire one full time, bring one in for the night for a just because gift or for a week of meals. It’s probably cheaper than you think to hire out a gourmet chef. Have the chef stock up your guy’s fridge and freezer with go-to meals that will remind him of your gourmet gift long after the occasion is over. Treat yourself, too, for a meal in dining on the creations from your new found chef. Try culinary institutes and you may get the newest chef who’s about to go big time.


Be Creative & Give With Love

You’ll have to get creative if you’re going to surprise a guy who already has it all. But it really is all in how you present it. You don’t have to spend a small fortune to gift him with something he will truly treasure.

Frame a photo of the two of you in black and white. Make him a collection CD of all your favorite songs together or give him a sentimental scrapbook of the two of you over a picnic dinner by the bay. It’s all in how you stage it that makes it a fabulous gift.

    You have so many great ideas here that I want to bring this article to everyone's attention again. Father's Day will be here before you know it and this hub may help someone think of the perfect gift for that special dad!

    The very first line of your HUB made me laugh out loud. My brother's birthday is on Saturday and guess what I bought him? A pair of slippers. Luckily, like you his wife is being creative and sending him on a birthday gift scavenger hunt. You have great ideas here that will be shared.

    A useful hub with some cool ideas! With Christmas just around the corner, less than 3 months away, it's a good idea to start brainstorming about where to find something special and unique for that special guy, and then go and get it before somebody else does. Cowboys Stadium in Dallas sold a lot of parts from it when they built their new one and some of those parts may still be available. Worth Googling it and finding out if you have a Cowboys fan on your list.

    Up and useful and will share!

    I find that tickets to a sporting event or concert is always a great gift. I'll take the personal chef though!

    These are great ideas. My hubs would for sure love the outback adventure but I have a feeling it might be out of our price range lol!
