Gift Ideas for People Who Have Enough Stuff

Giving gifts is a Christmas tradition for lots of people, my family included. But what do you give people who say they have enough stuff? That they don’t want or need anything, but you still want to continue your tradition of gift-giving?

Giving can be tremendous and joyful without spending a load of money. Keep it simple, think it through, and be creative. Surely,that special person will get as much joy in receiving your amazing gift as you get in giving.
