13 Gifts for People Who Are Impossible to Buy For

Everyone has that one friend or family member: the one who’s impossible to shop for.

Whether they already have it all or they’re Fort Knox and refuse to divulge any information, not even the slightest hint of what they want, these people make us second-guess ourselves like crazy, with thoughts like, “But will they even like this?” and “Will they use this?” or “Do they already have this?” passing through our minds.

But this year, forget all that and have a little fun with their gifts.

We scrolled through Oprah’s Favorite Things and checked out Amazon, Target and a few other popular sites’ gift suggestions and pulled the items they likely wouldn’t purchase for themselves but would actually use.

From the wacky to the practical and the whimsical to the functional, here are 11 gifts for those impossible-to-shop-for people in your life.
