We all have that one friend who seems to have everything. A closet filled with clothes and shoes. Check. Beauty and makeup products stocked in her closet. Check. Framed art and other home decor already set in place. Check. So, when it comes to the holidays, special occasions, or just because, the question of what should I gift the girl who has everything? always comes to mind.
So, how exactly do you find a gift for the girl who has everything—something that is unlike anything she already has? The key is to make it personal, meaningful, and something she wouldn’t necessarily gift herself but you can picture her using.
One suggestion to make a gift unique is by adding words of your own or choosing a quote just for her to go inside a piece of our fortune-holding jewelry. There’s something special about seeing words on paper that amplify its value.
To go the extra mile, pair each gift with an experience—because there’s nothing like the gift of quality time together.
Here, we’ve categorized Christmas gifts for the girl who has everything according to personality types (of course, these suggestions also work year-round). Although everyone carries different character traits, we hope this serves as a starting point to finding gifts for friends who have everything.
As the wise saying goes, “It’s the thought that counts.”
For the Bold Personality Types
This kind of girl doesn’t take life too seriously. Her free spirit seems to come naturally and she always exudes a positive vibe no matter the time of day. She’s bold when it comes to her style, often opting for colorful dresses, bright lipstick, and believes more is more when it comes to accessories.
She’s confident, courageous, and dares to take risks—even when they’re scary. When asked what she wants for the holidays, she often says “nothing” because she’s collected so much over the years from international travels and spontaneous shopping trips. She would much rather go out for cocktails or have a girls’ night in.
A fun gift idea may be to pair an experience (like an ice skating adventure) with a material gift that’s just as eye-catching as her personality. Our Sphere Secret Ring will do the trick—the oversized sphere shape opens up to hold a fortune that you can personalize.

Gift Ideas For the Minimalists
This loved one on your list is all about keeping things simple and classic. She doesn’t like too much clutter, cherishes the items that she does own, and believes in the philosophy of Marie Kondo.
This personality type aims to buy only practical things for herself and doesn’t usually ask for specific gifts, making it all the more challenging to find something for her on the holidays.
Perhaps her favorite colors are neutral but a touch of gold couldn’t hurt. When shopping for a minimalist, think about how the item would be purposeful to her. Gifts for friends who have everything—or in this case—prefer not to have everything, calls for more attention to how the item would fit in her life.
One item that will never go out of style is our Classic Fortune Locket. It is, simply put, a locket to hold a fortune—small yet meaningful. Store a wise old saying that she holds dear or find a quote that she may value, such as:
- “When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.” —Malala Yousafzai
- “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” —Mae West
- “Never let 'em see you coming.”
- “Make the invisible visible.”
- “Everything's gonna be cool.”
- “Edit your life.”
Also, an out-of-the-box gift would be to offer to help spend a day cleaning with her. If she’s a fan of tidy spaces, she’ll appreciate the time and effort you’ll take to be her organizing buddy. Make it fun by adding upbeat music and break out the champagne in between to make it more of a party than a chore.
For the Funny Folks
Do you have a friend who always makes you laugh out loud? Maybe you’ve known her since grade school, where she was the class clown (in the best way) and was always by your side during hard times. She’s the one you turn to for a pep talk or a funny story that magically makes your day brighter.
Her sense of humor is like no other, and your goal is to find a unique gift for her even when it seems like she already has everything. Does this sound like the girl you’re shopping for?
If so, show her how much she means to you by watching funny Christmas movies together, such as:
- The Grinch
- A Bad Mom Christmas
- Home Alone
- Deck the Halls
- Office Christmas Party
- Jingle All the Way
- A Christmas Story
After a series of laughs, surprise her with a present wrapped up in a huge box with a number of smaller boxes inside to finally reveal a piece of personalized locket jewelry like our Cascading Circles Fortune Locket. The various sizes of the circles give off a light-hearted feel that reminds us of blowing bubbles like we did as kids.

For the Romantics at Heart
Maybe you’re looking for Christmas gifts for the girl who has everything or you’ve already given her plenty of gifts in the past and want to make this one special. The key is to find an item that correlates with her personality. Is she the lovey-dovey type who adores Valentine’s Day? Maybe she’s been dreaming of her wedding and scribbling hearts on her composition notebooks since she was twelve. She’s a true romantic who cries while watching dramatic movies and feels all the feels during every fight. What others think is cheesy, she thinks is the most romantic thing that ever existed.
If you’re gifting someone who matches this description, an experience such as cooking a homemade meal could be the grand gesture she’s been hoping for even though she says she doesn’t need a gift. Food is a symbol of love, and cooking a meal that you know she likes could be a thoughtful way to win her heart.
For part two of her gift, perhaps a jewelry piece such as our Heart + Arrow Bracelet would be a thoughtful surprise. Inspired by vintage jewelry that once held perfume, messages, and keepsakes, this bracelet can hold a scrolled fortune chosen just for her.

- “Real love stories never have endings.” —Richard Bach
- “When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew.” —Arrigo Boito
- “I crave a love so deep, the ocean would be jealous.” —Pablo Neruda
For the Artistic Souls
This type of girl is innovative, intuitive, and expressive. She’s an artist, after all. As a creative individual, she likes to look at things from a different perspective and always knows how to give wise advice. When she gifts you something, it’s usually a playlist of songs she’s discovered or a painting of her favorite scene from a past travel destination.
Now, if you’re looking for something special for this artistic soul, perhaps plan out a girls’ trip to somewhere within driving distance. That way, you can play your favorite songs along the ride while you take in the scenic view and create memories during your travel adventure.
In addition, our Sphere + Wand Locket (which looks like a mini globe) could be a fitting gift for the girl who has everything. Add a message inside, such as a song lyric or a quote such as…
- “Follow what calls you.”
- “Tap into your magic.”
- “It’s your duty to dream.”
- “Dare BIG. Fear small.”
- “No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world. —Robin Williams
- “The formula of happiness and success is just being actually yourself in the most vivid way you possibly can.” —Meryl Streep
