20 clutter free gift ideas (and some bonus ideas)!

Hi Guys! Keeping it light today with some fun Christmas or Hanukkah gift ideas! (Hanukkah starts December 22nd and Christmas is the 25th. Just around the corner now!)

For those of us who are trying to declutter our possessions and lives, or are giving this year to someone who is, holiday gifts can be tricky. We all want to give something meaningful to the people we love. Heaven knows the world doesn’t need more stuff.

Here are some ideas for the people in your life you’d like to present with something special. They aren’t all non-physical items but are thoughtful and less likely to contribute to clutter in their homes.

    Hair appointment
    Concert tickets
    Movie tickets
    Museum/zoo membership
    Gym membership/Fitbit
    Fruit or food basket
    Desserts or chocolates
    Coffee beans or coffee shop gifts certificates
    Restaurant gift certificate
    Amazon/Target gift certificate
    Kindle or Audible subscription
    Consumable self-care items (bath bombs, essential oils, face masks, lotions)
    Experiences in their local area (escape room, float tank, horse back riding, golf or other sports passes)
    Services (house cleaning service, car wash and detailing, yard clean up/maintenance)
    Personal products you know they use and buy anyway (perfume/cologne, hair care products, makeup gift certificate)
    Hello Fresh or other food delivery service.
    Homemade meal/desserts/jams

I don’t know about you but I’d be happy to receive any one of those items!

Have you done your holiday shopping yet?

Is it starting to feel like Christmas (or Hanukkah or other holiday you celebrate) in your neck of the woods?

Hope you’re enjoying the season of giving!

May you be happy and well!
