For the person who has everything, how about a give-back gift with a social impact?
These are gifts that support organizations like Feeding America, which provides meals to hungry people in our own country; and Heifer International, which provides livestock to third-world families so that they have food as well as eggs, milk, wool, etc. to sell and generate income.
Heifer International has a catalog (and website) that showcases the different animals that you can donate, and how they help the families who receive them. For example:
These gifts of animals change the lives of families forever. The animals go to impoverished families in countries like Bolivia, China, Ghana, Nepal, Rwanda and Zanzibar. Their lives can be changed by an animal that provides milk, meat and and/or wool to to sell the milk and wool, as well as feed and clothe the family.
Just one animal can fund the education for a child to go to school, or a woman to start her own small business.
Our friends and family—who have everything they need—enjoy choosing a different animal every year. You can donate a whole animal for $120 to $500, or a share of one for as little as $10 or $20.
World Vision is a company that also provides animal donations, and also a wider selection of items for needy children worldwide:
Gifts start at just $16, with a good assortment for $25 or less.
