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.
Something to do or Somewhere to be:
+ A Spa session – a nice massage comes to mind.
+ Concert – ones that you know they’d love. Like I would worship anyone right now who gave me John Legend tickets.
+ A Sporting event.
+ Shows and plays – how about a Broadway musical?
+ A cultural tour – like a get to know your country type tour. You can learn so much!
+ Something to learn – a sewing, cooking or composting class maybe?
+ Beer or wine tasting – yes please!
Something to have or Something to use:
+ A plant – bamboo and bonsais come to mind. Bring some good energy into their space.
+ Flowers – will brighten up any space. And makes you feel all special and stuff.
+ Jewelry – like why not? It can be cherished and passed on to future generations.
+ Re-usable things such as cloth napkins, dryer balls and containers.
+ Books – E-books are always welcomed and doesn’t pick up your precious physical space. Also no clutter.
Something to Eat or Something to Drink:
+ Cake is always good.
+ A fruit basket – yum!!
+ A basket of homemade goodies such as bread, biscuits, cake, jam, jelly etc.
+ Wine, whiskey or gin please and thank you.
+ Donate in their name to a cause they support.
+ Spend some good quality time with them reminiscing or simply catching up.
+ Take them to lunch!
+ A movie date is always nice.
Points to take away: focus on the little things, make it memorable and make it meaningful. All the best!
