|Fresh cut flowers from your garden is a great gift!|
Do you have a minimalist in your life and need to find them a gift in the near future? Here are some ideas of things that they might love, but won't add to the amount of things in their home:
1. ENTERTAINMENT: give your minimalist tickets to the movies, theatre, or a concert, vouchers for dance or cooking lessons, tickets to a baseball game or something like it
2. GETAWAY: take your minimalist to a spa resort, camping, on a short road trip, a day at the beach, play tourist in a new city or help them cross an item off their Bucket List
3. PAMPER: gift your minimalist a manicure, pedicure, facial, hair cut or hair treatment, massage or something that would help them relax and feel refreshed
4. DATE: take your minimalist out for breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee, or anything that's one on one and involves good food
5. CARDS: give your minimalist a gift card to their favorite store or restaurant, iTunes, kindle books, etc.
|How about gift a weekend at the beach? Or a week in Hawaii? I think yes.|
6. SUBSCRIPTIONS: subscribe your minimalist to something like Amazon Prime, Kindle Unlimited, Netflix or a gym membership
7. TREATS: treat your minimalist to homemade baked goods, their favorite toiletries, supplements, essential oils or make-up, flowers, fancy dark chocolates, local honey or anything that is edible or consumable
8. SPOIL: pay for your minimalist's season tickets to a local theatre or favorite sports team, house cleaning, landscaping, home renovations (this is ideal for couples like us who live in their Fixer Upper while it's under construction)
9. UPGRADE: maybe your minimalist has everything that they need, but wouldn't mind making improvements (can you say iPhone8?)
10. SUPPORT: donate to your minimalist's favorite ministry or organization.
11. NEEDS: ask your minimalist what they need or want and gift them exactly that item!
If you have a minimalist in your life, it doesn't mean you can't give them gifts. Just remember that minimalists truly enjoy living simply and having less. Celebrate their birthdays and special occasions with things that help them make memories and have fun, without adding to the clutter in their home.
