MINIMALIST GIFT IDEAS
What do you get a minimalist? You may think the obvious answer would be nothing, but that isn’t necessarily the case. The first rule of thumb? Ask. The second rule of thumb? Read on for four minimalist gift ideas that are sure to please. I’ve got you covered.
If a minimalist in your life is going through a purging phase or maybe a clutter bug in your life is going through a change of heart on the familiar hoarding ways they may not welcome a gift. The idea may stress them out. I know most things would’ve stressed me out when I decided to adopt a More Minimalist Approach in my life.
Another thing to consider is that a move toward minimalism may also come with a style change. Someone who preferred floral patterns or abstracts may now love clean lines or empty space on the wall. A well-intended but misguided gift may just end up in next week’s donate pile.

1. AN AUDIBLE MEMBERSHIP OR OTHER SUBSCRIPTION
Just because you’re a minimalist doesn’t mean you don’t like books. Did you know you can gift an Audible membership? You can choose 3, 6, or 12-month memberships.
You can also gift a Prime membership if your budget allows.
2. A GIFT CARD
Did you know you can email a $25 gift card to stores like Lowe’s or Starbucks from Amazon? There are many other Gift Cards” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>gift cards from popular restaurants and retailers available.
3. A PAMPERING EXPERIENCE
A minimalist would probably prefer the gift of a rare experience such as a rejuvenating facial, mani/pedi, or relaxing massage. Hauling all your unwanted possessions out of the house to donate can be hard work! When giving gifts of this type be sure to check if they have a favorite place to go or that the place you choose is in line with their values. Splurging on a company that uses less than natural products may not sit well with your minimalist.
4. TAKE THEM OUT
I have been known to take friends who do not need/want anything, in particular, out for dinner and to catch up. This is a great way to celebrate the friend and get in some quality time. Time is another thing a typical minimalist appreciates by the way. A lot of minimalists let go of things to gain more time and human connection.
If you understand what motivates the minimalist in your life and adjust your thinking accordingly you may even come up with a few ideas of your own.
