If you are shopping for a minimalist, you can use this gifts for minimalists guide to find the perfect gifts for anyone on your list.
Clutter tends to build up so easily around the holiday season and birthdays. I don’t want to be unthankful or a Scrooge, but so often I feel like as a society we give gifts only for the sake of giving them. I miss the days of homemade gifts with incredible thought, or when we were so poor all we could give was the gift of our time. These are the gifts that are remembered. Even if money is no longer an issue when giving gifts, it is often the experiences that the recipient remembers more often than the newest, most expensive technology that doesn’t help us make memories together.
When giving gifts, regardless of your budget, consider giving gifts that are timeless. Think of memories you can give, a donation of your time, something functional and that will get used regularly. or something you made with your own two hands. I think that is what I like best about minimalist gifts. They are timeless. Minimalist gifts get used. Or maybe they create memories.
Stop the act of passing on useless clutter. Use this guide for minimalists gifts to give something the recipient will truly love but not add unnecessarily to the stuff they already own.
