The holiday season is officially upon us and today I’m back with even more gift ideas for the holiday season in addition to the Ultimate Clutter-Free Gift Guide I shared last week 🙂
As much as we all really look forward to this time of year, I think there can also be a sense of dread that comes with it as well. For those of us who purposefully try to keep our homes clutter-free throughout the year, the impending gift exchanges that accompany Christmas can sometimes leave us feeling a little panicked with all of the excess that finds a way to creep into our homes.
Today I’m sharing 11 fabulous gift ideas that are as clutter-free as gifts get, and are items that anyone would love to receive!
11 gift ideas for minimalists:
1. High quality socks
Some quality cashmere or wool socks can make for an awesome gift! I find that I’m less likely to treat myself to a pair of nice socks and typically don’t want to spend the few extra dollars on myself for that, but I really appreciate it when I receive them as gifts. Isn’t it funny how the gifts you hated receiving as a kid can be your favorites as you get older? 😉
3. Concert or event tickets
Tickets to go see their favorite band perform, or spending a night in gut-wrenching laughter by seeing their favorite comedian can be such a fun treat to have a night out on the town. Experience gifts are great because they allow the receiver to create memories that they will cherish forever!
4. Lessons to a class of their choosing
There are so many fun resources available to adults that allow you to either brush up on old skills, or learn something entirely new. Some fun ideas include music classes to learn a new instrument or language lessons to brush up before your next big international trip. Other ideas that might be nice to gift to a couple would be dance or cooking classes that they could participate in together.
7. Restaurant or movie gift cards
Treat someone to a night out on the town on your dime! Restaurant or movie gift cards can be the perfect way to let your loved one experience a fun dinner and movie experience without spending their own money to do so.
9. Luxury bath goodies
Gifting someone with goodies like bubble bath or bath bombs is a great way to encourage them to pamper themselves a bit in the comfort of their own home. The holidays can be a stressful time of year, and giving someone a gift that reminds them to slow down a bit can really help to offset that stress.
11. Books or Games
The gift of a good read is usually appreciated by almost anyone. Books don’t take up a significant amount of space to store, and provide a wealth of information right at your fingertips. Books like The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up might be the perfect pick for a budding minimalist or someone who wants to get more organized as the New Year approached.

Don’t forget about the gamer in your life, if your partner loves playing computer games then you should consider getting them a UnrankedSmurfs account if that is something that they would be in to.
