Here are 61 minimalist gift ideas for everyone in your life. Why add more clutter to the world? When I first started decluttering I thought I would never buy anything ever again. The thought of unwanted gifts stressed me out, but luckily there is an alternative.
Americans spend a lot of money on gifts, the average American spends $920 per person on holiday gifts, and the sad thing is a lot of these gifts go in the trash! 31% of people regift the presents they receive and 4% actually throw them away.
This sounds horrible, but it can be fixed with the gift of an experience.
Here are 61 Clutter-Free Gift Ideas for the Minimalist in your life:

Most of us moms just want a break or a little help sometimes. These gift ideas would be loved by any mom you know.

Minimalists Love Experience Gifts
What is better than the gift of a fun experience! Spending time with a loved one is just as special as a physical item.
- Go on a family vacation
- Check out a ballet
- Enjoy a musical
- Skiing Lessons
- Surfing Lessons
- Road Trip
- Picnic, you pack and plan the day.

The Gift of Classes
Classes can be very expensive and as a mom, I would love the gift of a class or membership. Most people forget that a gift doesn’t have to be something that you unwrap.
- Interior Design
- Gym Classes
Consumable Gifts For Christmas
As a minimalist, I love a gift that I can use up! This type of gift is very appreciated, I know my kids love getting toothpaste in their stocking LOL.
- Starbucks gift card
- Target Gift card
- Home Depot Gift card
- Any Gift Card
- Cleaning supplies
One gift that everyone can use is money. It sounds crazy, but I normally give a card with money to most kids for their birthdays. This way they can choose whatever they want or they can save their money for something special. We have started a savings account for both of our boys and any time they receive money it goes straight into their accounts for their future.
I hope some of these clutter-free gift ideas can inspire you to find the right gift for your family and friends.
