Difficult Folks To Shop For

Some people are really difficult to get gifts for.  Everyone has a parent or a relative or finicky friend that’s just a pain in the derriere to procure a gift for.  Whether it’s Uncle Bob or Rabbi Feldman, there’s always some person in our circle that mystifies us when it comes time to proffer a gift.  Mobile apps can help.  Here’s a list of people that can flummox you when it’s time to give them a gift.

1. Grandma’s home health nurse
2. The rabbi, priest or minister
3. School custodian or maid
4. The nanny or babysitter
5. Your ex’s new spouse

Here are a few tips:

1. Focus on their hobbies.  The rabbi, after all, is a Mets fan.

2. Zero-in on an area where they may be stressed.  Custodians, maids and nurses do a lot of physical labor, so a massage gift certificate might be nice.

3. Give them something that may not be part of their daily lives.  If the babysitter watches a lot of SNL, give her tickets to the local comedy club.

4. Though you may like tie-dye, your recipient may not.  Don’t give the ex-hubby’s new wife a Grateful Dead T-Shirt if she’s not a Dead Head like the ex.
