Christmas in July Shopping Guide – For the Person who has Everything

Good morning everyone – Jen from Caffeinated Papercuts here with another fun shopping guide for you! We all know at least one person who “doesn’t need anything” or “already has everything”. So what can we get them instead of yet another gift card this year? I asked our team members and they came back with some very creative ideas!

A nightcap is the perfect gift for the person who has everything. I suggest the lightweight ones over the heavy weight ones. You lose most of you body heat through your head. Just a little head covering goes a long way.

The person who has everything might not have a special combination knife-spoon that’s just for jelly and jam. This one was in the family silver-plate collection and I had to look it up to see what it was for. It would be a delight at the vintage-themed breakfast table.

I love how both Barbara and Amy had similar trains of thought!

Why not give a monogrammed or personalized hat? Great for outdoors, these hats are high quality, durable, and fashionable. We love creating the perfect gift for the person in your life who has everything. We can add just about anything to our hats-monograms, names, sayings, or small designs to make this a special gift. We can even add names to the side of the hat or to the back of the hat!

I love grabbing my camera and heading out to view the world.
But while getting to locations in the early morning or late evening I did not like the weight and feel of a headlamp sitting atop my head, so I looked around for an alternative and discovered hats with built in headlights!  Then the textile artist in me started creating and stitching a few designs giving each hat a personal touch. (These hats were screaming for individuality.)

I created this piece so that special treasures can be kept so very close. The person who has everything needs to remember everything, even the small things – this locket bracelet would be the perfect accessory to store those tiny, yet precious memories in.

I know you have a sponge and a scrub, I’m sure you have soap, but do you have those all necessary things in one? If no – it is perfect opportunity to try my felted ayurvedic soaps.  To make them I use natural sheep wool and heeling ayurvedic Indian soap bars. And….my heart and hand work!

Finally, who doesn’t love a good piece of artwork?

Fine art photography print set in a greeting card will make a perfect gift for anyone. Card that is a gift in itself, can be framed and recipient will be reminded of you every time they see it hanging on the wall. As for sentiments you want to fill in it is totally up to you. You can be as sweet and mushy as you want, or if it is naughtiness that runs through your veins then do not let me hold you. Once framed no one apart from you and your loved one will know what secret messages is the card hiding.

For the lady or gentleman who has everything, why not get them their very own portable moon?!

There’s nothing more calming yet mind-expanding than sitting and gazing at the moon, pondering the mysteries of the universe, and this unique collage canvas is so much more conveniently sized than any real astral bodies!

It’s a favourite piece of mine because I really enjoy the compact, neat size of the box canvas, the texture still visible in the paint, and the added tactility of the hand-stitching. Plus I just love pictures of the moon! So familiar and yet so unknown (at least by me…)

Thank you to everyone who shared their ideas with us! So, have our finds inspired you to get something new & unique for that hard to shop for person? Be sure to check out the tags ‘cij’ and ‘etsycij’ on Etsy and on all social media outlets for more fun ideas and sales!
