Clutter Free Gift Ideas For The Holiday Season
It’s that time of year again! The holidays are upon us and that means it’s time to start thinking about what gifts to give to our loved ones. But if you’re like me, the thought of trawling through crowded malls and fighting for parking spots is enough to put you off shopping altogether. And let’s not even get started on the mountain of wrapping paper and ribbon that always seems to pile up come January. Plus, where do you store all of the new gifts you give and receive? Consider giving clutter-free gifts this year.
I’ve put together a list of clutter-free gift ideas that are sure to please even the pickiest people on your list. Best of all, none of these gifts will break the Christmas budget or add to the already overflowing closets and drawers in your home full of the gifts from last year.
Whether it’s for their favorite restaurant, retailer, or gas station, gift cards (or a gift certificate) are always a great idea. They can be used immediately or saved for special occasions. And with so many options available these days (e.g., e-gift cards), they’re super easy to purchase and send. No wrapping required! You can even purchase discounted gift cards to stretch your Christmas budget. Some great gift card ideas are:
- Amazon gift card
- restaurant gift card
- Meal Delivery Service (perfect for busy moms)
- card to a favorite store
Tickets to a concert, show, or game make great gifts for anyone who loves live entertainment. And if you’re feeling really generous, you can splurge on VIP tickets or season passes. You might give tickets to:
If your loved one is into fitness, art, or nature, consider giving them a membership to a local gym, museum, or zoo. This is a great way to support local businesses while also giving your giftee the gift of year-round enjoyment.
Give the gift of an experience with certificates for cooking classes, skydiving lessons, or spa treatments. These kinds gifts are a great option and create memories that will last a lifetime…and they don’t take up any space in your house like a physical gift! Win-win! Here are a few experience gift ideas:
- online courses
- music lessons
- a date night
- a road trip
- escape rooms
A subscription to a favorite magazine or online service makes a thoughtful gift that keeps on giving long after the holiday season is over. And with so many different types of subscriptions available (e.g., food delivery, beauty boxes), there’s sure to be one that’s perfect for everyone on your list. Some favorite ideas for subscriptions are:
- subscription boxes
- subscription boxes for kids
- beauty boxes
- magazine subscription
- grocery subscription like Misfits Market
- Streaming Service subscription
With iTunes cards and Amazon gift cards, the sky’s the limit when it comes to digital content like music, movies, books, digital products and games. Plus, they are a wonderful gift for someone who’s love languages are gifts and like instant gratification. Just make sure you know what type of device your giftee uses before you make your purchase.
Is there someone on your list who’s always talking about taking up a new hobby? Why not help them out by signing them up for a beginner’s class in something they’re interested in? It could be anything from painting and pottery to dance and cooking. You could even check out online classes that would be easy for them to attend.
Make a donation in honor of your loved one to their favorite charity…or better yet, let them choose where their donation goes. Not only will this be appreciated by your generosity and thoughtfulness but it’s also good for the soul! 🙂
Gift of Time
Sometimes the best gifts are free Christmas gifts…and that includes things like homemade coupons for babysitting services or car washes , heartfelt letters expressing your love and appreciation , or even just some quality time spent together doing something you both enjoy . Whatever you do, just make sure it comes from the heart! This is one of my favorite clutter-free gift ideas and is perfect for a clutter-free Christmas.
Consumable gifts are sometimes the perfect gift. The gift recipient can enjoy the gift without all of the extra clutter of keeping something for a long time. Some great consumable gifts are:
- food gifts
- beauty products
- freezer meals
I hope this has given you some inspiration for stress-free shopping this year. Remember, it’s not about how much money you spend on a gift but rather the thoughtfulness behind it that counts . So take a deep breath , relax , and enjoy this festive time of year ! 🙂
