We all know those people who always seem to be ahead of the latest trends and just seem to have everything long before we can get around to buying it for them. Of course if you have thousands of dollars to spend, it’s pretty easy to find personal, custom and unique gifts, but what about if you don’t have a great deal of money to spend? For these people, gift giving requires a great deal of creativity and outside-of-the-box thinking. Thankfully, with the internet of things, there has never been a better time to find a unique and unusual gift for the person who has everything that doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Here is a list of 5 great gifts for the person who has everything that won’t send you spiraling into debt to purchase!
1. International Apparel
While they may have never travelled to Tahiti, Bermuda or the Bahamas, that doesn’t mean you can’t buy them a gift that they can’t walk into their local mall and purchase. Try this Deus Ex Machina hat from Tokyo or check out this wide selection of international apparel.

4. Personalized gifts
While your special person may have everything, there’s nothing that makes a gift more special than one that literally has their name on it. Whether you’re giving a gift to a family, close friend or relative or even a child, personalizing a gift lets them know you literally chose it just for them. You can find a wide assortment of personalized gifts at Personal Creations.
5. Commission one-of-a-kind gifts
Etsy is a great place to find unique, unusual and one-of-a-kind gifts. Best of all, you can contact artists on Etsy to commission one-of-a-kind creations. By perusing the website, you can narrow down the type of gift you want and then contact an artist that makes something similar to what you are looking for. While most artists offer items on Etsy that they can produce in bulk, many artists will jump at the opportunity to make something similar that is unique or one-of-a-kind.
Wherever you live, there are almost always any number of artists – starving or otherwise – that can be commissioned to create one-of-a-kind pieces that might be too heavy to ship. Whether you are looking for a Star Wars T-shirt with your loved one’s face on it, a quilt made of old t-shirts with major sentimental value or a dining room table that seats 12 made from the oak tree you planted at your first home, you can generally find someone who can create it for you.
