How do you find the perfect gift idea for anyone regardless of the recipient's age? I've always believed that the general principle for finding the best gift ideas remains the same: a thought about the receiver comes first - the gift itself just takes second place.
That basic principle essentially implies that the idea of a perfect gift idea actually doesn't exist as an idea that can be considered universal. Put another way, there's no such thing as a standard "perfect gift" for anyone that matches a particular profile, demographic, or description. Every so-called best gift is as unique as the recipient and the purpose for which it is given.
To illustrate this, think of Christmas gift ideas to give to your spouse. If you intend to buy one online, you'll probably browse tens or hundreds of gift registry sites that list Christmas gifts, gift ideas for husbands, gift ideas for wives, and the like. Surely, you want to give the best gift not because of the holiday but despite the holiday.
An Easier Way
Everyone has both needs and wants, and at the end of the day, it's those gift ideas that fulfil a need that counts and matters more (and are often fondly remembered). After all, everyone can live without getting what one wants. Imagine yourself as the recipient of a special gift. Can you say to the gift giver, "You do love me and care for me; you were there in my need"?

Taking the recipient's need as your foremost consideration in deciding what gift to give lifts your gift giving several notches higher than routine, superficial, thoughtless, and meaningless giving. So, if you intend to practise a more loving and more genuinely human way of giving the best gift idea to your loved ones, try the needs-based approach. The most thoughtful, noble, and special gift you can give is one that helps fulfill the recipient's need.
