If you’re a parent or a relative trying to choose a gift for your child, the task should be relatively easy as kids usually want a lot of things. It’s just a matter of choosing what would surprise them the most and fits your budget. But when it comes to gifting your parents or just a family who have pretty much everything they want, what are your options?
Not many if we’re looking at the list of things one would want in their daily life. From fancy wrist watches to High-definition TVs, they probably already own every gadget and accessory they’d ever need. So, to come up with a proper and actually impressive gift for family members, you have to think beyond the traditional gadgets or accessories and try to get more personal.
Giving them something that would add more meaning to their life would be ideal of course but when that’s not possible your next best bet is to give them something that will act as a physical representation of the bond they share. Here we have listed 15 of the best gift ideas for families who have everything to help you still make their special day even more special.

12. USB mouse hand warmer
Computers might be one of the greatest technological inventions of all time, making our everyday tasks a lot easier. But such comfort does come with its own drawbacks. Which are especially shown as we grow older as our body cannot quite handle the strain.

This hand warmer also acts as a mouse pad and connects to a USB port itself to warm up the materials. It will keep the hand inside it in a comfortable place for as long as they are using the mouse and this can also be used as a standalone product as it tends to show some soothing effects when it comes to pain and poor blood circulation in the hand.
13. Tabletop Fireplace
A fireplace is something every household needs to have. Sure, a heater will do the same job and probably a lot better but certain things aren’t really about how well they do their job and more about how they make you feel.

This tabletop fireplace works great for indoors and outdoors. It uses bio fuel to burn so there’s no excess smoke or ash that falls around.

15. Personalized throw pillows
We all remember pillow-wars, don’t we? It is the most fun and yet surprisingly competitive way to overpower each other. While it looks like war, everything around is just filled with nothing but love and affection. When the mood gets too dull, starting a pillow fight might just be the catalyst you need to set of a chain reaction which before long leaves all your family throwing and ducking from pillows flying all around.
