Sometimes we wish we could just get a list from our friends and families to ease the stress of finding the perfect gift – especially for that person who is nearly impossible to please. Here are some gifting ideas for the gift enigmas on your list so you can enjoy a care-free shopping experience this season:

DIYers – Purchase arts and crafts workshops for friends or family members who have a creative flare. They can put an additional skill set to use and make some personalized holiday décor with their new expertise.

Zenfully Minded – Gift a spiritual friend with a private yoga class or weekend meditation retreat. They’ll appreciate their downward dog away from city life and find inner nirvana in a countryside sun salute.

Foodies – If their risotto comes out perfect every time, pastry classes might be the way to go – even a soufflé can unnerve Michelin star chefs. A tour of a vineyard is a great gesture for those who are self-proclaimed or practicing sommeliers, too.

The Impossible to Buy For – A SiriusXM radio is the gift that can please anyone including the goofy dad, the music-loving best friend or even the too hip nephew. With more than 120 channels of music, news, talk, sports and entertainment to listen to, anyone on your list can tune in to hear whatever suits their mood. You can also gift a SiriusXM subscription to someone who may already have satellite radio in their vehicle or an online subscription so they can enjoy through their phone, computer or tablet, wherever they are.

Style Maven – Gift cards are a fantastic option because you choose any denomination, and you can get one directly from the recipient’s favourite retail destination. From homemade knits to haute couture, they’re not tied down to one article of clothing.
