Gift Ideas for the Cool Minimalist You Hang Out With

Looking for gift ideas for the minimalist in your life? Whatever you do, let it be thoughtful. Don’t give us things that will sit and collect dust. In fact, you don’t need to give us anything at all. You can keep the tangibles and instead give us an experience, quality time or some good positive vibes. Your presence in our lives is enough.

But if you would like to give us something to see, use, read, wear or treasure everyday, something that brings us pure joy, well go on then! We love those too. You can do some brainstorming right here with some of these thoughtful minimalist-friendly gift ideas.

    I’m quite the opposite of a minimalist, so this is super helpful for me! Buying a minimalist an experience rather than an item is such an obvious but great idea, why did I not think of that before!
