I'm about to talk about a hypothetical person. (If you are reading this, this post is not about you. Just...um...so we are clear. Not you. Someone else. OBVIOUSLY.)
It's about people who make it IMPOSSIBLE to give them a decent gift. You know THOSE PEOPLE.
The "do you have a gift receipt?" people. Eye roll.
The "oh, how nice" people whose faces look like they are eating cow doo doo while they unwrap the gift. Bless their hearts.
The kid who says, "thank you. My mom says I have to say that even if I hate the gift." Sigh.
You know those people.
I have ideas for gifts for those impossible to please people.
Have you considered the fun look on their faces when you give them an ugly fish bird feeder?
Giving this tell it like it is coffee cup to your father-in-law might be risky, but I bet this t-shirt is an instant hit!
A voice changer is perfect for anyone who likes to hear themselves talk.
Urine detector, anyone? If your recipient has a pet, maybe this is appropriate. If not...still appropriate?
Who can object to a simple photo album? Go ahead and fill it with beautiful pictures of you and your family. If you slip in a couple of horrible pictures of the recipient, I promise not to tell!

On a more serious note, this vegetable spaghetti maker is nice for a mother-in-law or your vegetarian cousin. This fruit-infuser water bottle would be great for anyone who works out regularly (or plans to start).
Fill a bamboo tray with a bottle of wine and a couple of glasses, a simple tea or coffee service, or a variety of cheeses and jams for a delightful gift. For your niece, put a hairbrush, some scented hand cream, and a small mirror.
A handcrafted copper mail box looks expensive and is a great little storage container on any wall, not just for mail delivery.
This chalkboard globe is really fun, thoughtful, and perfect for a unique individual. For an aunt or a grandparent, personalize it by having your kid draw the Earth (as they see it) on the globe first.
For females in your life, this tote bag is beautiful.
If all else fails, everybody loves chocolate covered bacon. Or they don't, and you get to eat it. Win/win!
Now, everyone cross your fingers and say your prayers that The Loki doesn't choose this Christmas to announce, "thank you. My mom says I need to say thanks even if I get granny underwear."
