We all know that one person who is hard to buy for, because they’ve got everything already. When it comes to surprising this special person in your life, you’ll need a little guidance to think outside the box. What is that special surprise they’d never even thought about? Lucky for you, our gifting experts have a few recommendations for unique gifts for him, and luxury presents for her.
Rather than get them things, you could consider getting them experiences instead. For example, you could treat them to a rare vintage wine tasting at The Winemakers Club in London. You will get a chance to taste six top level wines complimented with an assortment of cheeses and charcuterie during the 90 minute session. The wines available are served at some of the most exclusive restaurants in London, including Babbo Restaurant, Fera at Claridges and Hibiscus.
Or, there is an experience offered at the City of London Distillery that will allow you to make your own gin. The lucky recipient will get to learn about the history of gin and explore botanicals, then distil their own 700ml bottle. If your loved one is a gin fanatic this will be the ultimate gift for them – unlike anything else they will receive.
Another unique experience for the person who has everything could be an evening at the cinema – but not just any ordinary cinema! The stylish Soho Hotel has a one of a kind cinema that is jazzed up with red leather armchairs, high quality projection and sound and classy cocktails. Films are screened in the late afternoon, offering you the choice between having a three course lunch or afternoon tea beforehand or a dinner afterward.
Or, you could take that special someone out for a meal that they will never forget. Don’t just take them to an ordinary restaurant, if they are the type who has everything they have probably been to most of the usual suspects.
Instead, give them an experience at a unique restaurant that they might not have experienced. For example, INK Restaurant in Mile End offers seven course of seasonal Scandinavian cuisine that is absolutely divine. All of the produce will have been sourced fresh within 17 hours of the experience and the cuisine will be artistically presented at a beautiful setting on the wharf in the East End of London.
What else can you get for the person who has everything? Why not a spa experience so that they can be pampered? There is a wonderful five-star spa ritual available at the Spa at Four Seasons in London that includes 80 minutes of luxurious treatments such as an aromatic foot soak, a stress-relieving massage and a full body exfoliation. The gorgeous spa overlooks Hyde Park, offering gorgeous views to savour while relaxing.
Hopefully a few of these recommendations will help, if not – take a look at a full selection of what to get for the person who has everything.
