With more and more people turning towards minimalism and simple living, lots of thoughts need to be put into gift-giving. Today, I have you covered 13 minimalist gift ideas that your beloved ones will appreciate.
The idea behind presenting a gift is to make your dear ones happy. And not overwhelming them with the items that they-
- don’t need or want
- don’t know what to do with it?
- which they’ll stress to deal with (keep or discard)?
Since Gift means Happiness. Happiness can be in any form – a physical thing or a living experience.
In fact, I love to know my loved ones’ opinions in picking a gift for themselves. Or I simply put the cash into an envelope and let them choose something on their own.
But if you want to surprise them with some exciting gifts. I have some suggestions which can be helpful:
Capsule Beauty Kit:
You can pull together a capsule (custom-designed) beauty kit for your friend/relative. Just ascertain their favorite makeup or skincare brand and pick the basic products that they can use regularly.
Example: A combo of an (eye-shadow palette + blush + lipsticks) or (Cleanser + toner + moisturizer) or (a good day cream+night cream) or (powder foundation + lip crayons).
Movie Tickets/Tickets To Events:
Gift them a ticket to their favorite show or place. It can be a musical event, a visit to an art gallery or museum, depending on the person’s interest. These memorable occasions count more than physical gift items for many individuals.
Yoga Mat/Sports Equipment:
There wouldn’t be a great choice than a yoga mat for the yogis or kettlebell/resistance band for gym fans. These sorts of items can be great for busy mommies mainly since they can accomplish a quick 10-15 minutes exercise at home.
Books mean the world to the bookworms! Remember a friend talking about their favorite part from the latest book he/she read? There you have it! Go with the same genre/author.
Another wonderful gift for a bookworm is a library subscription or kindle books.
Coffee Mug/Coffee Date:
If the person and you, both are coffee lovers, a coffee date can be the most enjoyable treat. If you’re not, gifting them a pack of one they love along with a personalized coffee mug can make a lovely present.
A planner is a great practical gift. It can be useful to anyone, particularly those who love to stay organized. You can also DIY to add a bit of a personal touch.
Do you want your gift to be an everyday-used item.. something that will make the chore easiest? A home appliance is a good fit! There are many traditional as well as advanced home appliances available. This will be a great choice for new mommies, working moms, our own parents, or older people to help them make their job easier.
Do you love baking or cooking? Making your own homemade goodies is heartwarming. Nothing can beat something so thoughtful and prepared with love, like freshly baked sandwich cookies, muffins, gingerbread rolls, caramel crackers, etc
It’s the home decor freaks’ handy alternative! Candles are usable, classy, and inexpensive giftware.
A Spa/Nail Art Appointment:
A superb way to let them unwind, relax and beautify themselves at the same time. If your friend is a beauty enthusiast, you’re going to make her day.
Visit a dentist/dermatologist/hair specialist:
This is a great option for those very close to you. Just know their concerns and make appointments accordingly.
A wonderful plan for family outings and also to avoid cooking and after-party clean-up. Dinner trips are wonderful because everyone is uniformly involved.
One of my favorites on the list. Here we are talking about natural plants. The plant is a truly meaningful gift for anyone. Make sure to figure out – whether it’s an indoor one and the ways to care for it. Moreover, gift it to a plant-lover or someone who loves gardening.
These gift ideas are great for Christmas, birthdays, or other special events. All the things listed here are perfect for a simple living or minimalist lifestyle. Things that won’t clutter their space and will make them feel special.
