I think we can all benefit from having less stuff but buying gifts that don't involve actual things can be difficult.
So for all of you out there struggling with what to buy for the minimalists on your Christmas list (or for those of you who are just looking for something different) here's a good list to get you going.
The gift of a new experience.
- a trip to the zoo or aquarium
- an art class
- tickets to a play
- passes to a museum
- movie tickets
- dance classes
- tickets to a sports game
The gift of quality time.
I like to make coupons to give for this one. At least they have something to open AND they can cash it in at their convenience. Just don't forget to actually make it happen!
- go to the spa
- a day of baking cookies together
- take them out for dinner
- a sleepover
A gift of service.
- bring them meals for a week.
- help wash their car.
- help organize their closets or basement
- offer an evening of free babysitting
The gift of helping others.
- make a donation in the gift receiver's name
- volunteer at a local soup kitchen together
The gift of prayer or good thoughts.
