Minimalist Gift Ideas


Being a minimalist doesn't necessarily mean you have an empty wishlist. But it can be quite hard to find the perfect gift for someone even if they aren't minimalists. This post is really for anyone who needs a bit inspiration as to what to give to loved ones. An experience is always a good idea. Memories are the best gift you can give so why not? Here are some of my ideas:
Movie tickets
I absolutely love going to the movies. There is just something about sitting in those seats, in the dark watching a movie on the big screen with people you'll never see again. A gift card to the movies is always a good idea. It can just be a gift card to the movies but it can also be to a specific movie that they wouldn't necessarily choose themselves - but it shouldn't be too far off.. I would run if I got tickets to a horror movie.. 

Sportsgame
I actually love sports but I never go. It's not that I don't want to it's just always easier to stay home. But nothing can beat the atmosphere of actually being there! That is not something you feel sitting behind the screen of the TV. I would also be open to sports that I don't usually watch. It's just something else actually being there than seeing it at home. 

Massage
Who would not love that? A massage is one of the best ways we can treat ourselves. People just never find the time nor the money to do so. So why not give it to them as a gift? There are tons of massages to choose from but a standard body massage can never go wrong!

A facial 
This is also a massage but here you also get masks and different skin treatments which is just so lux! If I'm honest this is probably my favorite way to treat myself because treating your skin treats your soul. The soft skin that feels so clean is just an amazing feeling!

Café visit
A visit to their favorite café or maybe even a new café because who doesn't want to try something new once in a while? Going to a café is also one of the best ways to treat ourselves. And it has never not been possible to get something vegan that it still amazing!

Write a letter
If you have a no buy rule where you don't give gifts to each other on birthdays and other events but still want to do something nice, a letter is always a good idea - or even if you don't have a no buy rule. Write how much you care about them, why you care and why you love your friendship. This is something that comes from the heart and is more valuable than any gift!

Gift cards 
I think that gift cards are always a good idea. Because you don't have to decide on something they might end up getting rid of and they can just choose themselves. The thing with gift cards is that they aren't really the most exciting thing to give.. they are rather flat - but displaying them in a cool way can definitely make it more exciting. You can put the gift card in a frame with pictures of you and your friend, or who you are giving it to, to make it extra special.
