As I promised yesterday we would come up with some ideas for what to buy a minimalist. There are times in our lives that we just have to buy and give gifts to loved ones. One of those times is Christmas. This can be a stressful time for many and especially for those that want to purchase something for the minimalist in their lives. So here is a list of ideas that any minimalist would enjoy.
When buying something for a minimalist remember that the last thing they want is more stuff. So instead take the route of finding activities or experiences. Most minimalists would say they are living this way because they want to live life to its fullest. So what ideas do we have that could help them?

In gifting minimalists with activities, you insure that they will feel loved. When you give them the gift of time its speaks to their heart. Helping them to experience something they may not have experienced before. When in doubt just ask. I know we love to give gifts secretly. We want to surprise people with gifts that we feel they will love. When you get a person you know is living simply it’s not a bad idea to ask them what they might like. They might surprise you with some ideas they have. Just because they don’t want stuff doesn’t mean you can’t gift them something incredible!
I hope this list gets your wheels turning and you can find something to show your minimalist friend how much you love them. Enjoy the hunt and best of luck!
