    I would give a photograph of maybe you and your friend together. Those are priceless!

    That's always a tough one. My mother is that person on my list, more because she doesn't need anything than she has everything. She is in a nursing home in New Mexico. I haven't spent much time with her, so I am going to give her some of my time.

    A "mindblowing, hair pulling, sheet shredding, sweat pouring, leg paralyzing, the dog's in the room staring at us but no one cares because that is one damn good" orgasm! ...cuz you can't buy one of those!

    A skip, cos if they've got everything surely they're gonna want to through some of it away at some point.

    Oooh or anything that they already have, because there are no rules that say that they can't have something twice.

    My great grandma lived to be 102 and every year it was harder and harder to buy her something so for her "gift" I would take her down south where she was from and we would walk around her old family farm and then we would take pictures and later I would have one or so framed for her. And she always said she enjoyed thoses days and the memories more than anything else.

    NOTHING! LOL Just kidding. If they like the theatre or a certain band, I would get tickets for the both of us and have a nice night out on the town. That way you are giving your companionship along with something nice that they didn't expect.

    I don't believe in obligatory gifts, and it annoys me when people give them. However, for someone I love and WANT to give something to....

    For someone who has everything, an invitation to have a beer and some good conversation.

    For someone who needs nothing (not necessarily indicative of them having everything)...I know one person like this, and one year for her birthday, I named a star after her with the Star Registry. She still has the certificate hanging on her bedroom wall...I know it meant a lot to her...

    Gift certificates, take them out for an evening to hang out, a little scrapbook with pictures of us together.

    The gift of your time - go on an outing to a local garden or museum, or offer to drive them to visit family out of town. Go shopping together, help with housework or baking, read to someone elderly, or record stories of when they were growing up. Do something creative together, like create a family scrapbook, or just watch a movie together.

    The gift of your time is not only appreciated, but rewarding in and of itself.
