12 Birthday Gifts Anyone Would Love

12 Birthday Gifts Anyone Would Love

It’s short notice and you need a birthday gift.

But what do you get the person who seems to have everything? Or the person who isn’t easy to shop for?

Finding the perfect collection of gifts can be a challenge, but it’s worth the effort. Creating a small stockpile of gifts makes it easy to grab something when you’re in a hurry.

Of course, you can’t create a stockpile of just anything. You need a cultivated collection that suits a wide range of interests and appeals across gender lines. That means you need to shop carefully and wisely.

To help you get started (and possibly even finished with your birthday shopping), we have compiled the list of excellent birthday gift ideas. These will get the job done no matter who is the recipient.

Cookbook

Cookbook

Of course a standard cookbook is always an essential for most kitchens, but a cookbook that steps outside of the ordinary makes an excellent gift. Look for clever books or region specific ones that those who enjoy time in the kitchen can make the most of such as French meals, Cajun cooking, outdoor grilling recipes or others they are unlikely to have.

Candle

The flicker of a candle is soothing and so is the fragrance. Buy up a stash of pretty candles and you’ll be all set for future grab-and-go gift giving. Candles are great for everyone because there are plenty of neutral, feminine and masculine scents, and everyone likes for their home to smell nice.

Journal
