Clutter-free Gift Ideas for the Holidays

We all know that the holiday season is a time for gift giving. It's also a time that many of us receive gifts we really don't need or even want. And as time goes by, those unneeded or unwanted gifts eventually turn into "clutter" in our home. So this year, why not try giving your family and friends some amazing CLUTTER FREE gifts?!


The perfect CLUTTER FREE GIFT to give this year is the gift of Organization! Gift cards for organizing help are now available on my website. Click HERE to get yours today!!!!


Before we dive in to all of the AWESOME clutter free gifts you can give this year, let me take a moment to explain WHY clutter-free gifts are the best gifts you can give someone.


THE PROBLEM WITH MATERIAL GIFTS...

The happiness derived from receiving a material gift is short-lived. The initial happiness at receiving a material gift diminishes over time because you become used to seeing and/or using it.


THE BENEFIT OF CLUTTER-FREE GIFTS...

Clutter-free gifts focus on giving experiences, rather than giving physical objects. Experiences often involve interacting with other people. Enjoying a similar activity together creates a bond between people, and positive social interaction increases happiness. That type of happiness can last a lot longer because of the memories it creates. In short, there are loads of research studies that show experiences tend to bring us more joy and happiness than material items.


Now, before you run out to buy all sorts of gift cards for everyone on your holiday list, take a moment FIRST to think about what type of experiences you plan to give. Think about who you're giving the "experience" to, and ask yourself...

  • What makes them happy?

  • What hobbies do they enjoy?

  • What is age appropriate to give?

  • Will this experience require transportation?

  • Who will be providing the transportation for the experience?

  • What kind of time commitment does this activity require?

  • A one-time event (like a day at the museum)

  • A recurring task (like lessons that occur once every week)

  • Does the experience require purchasing extra items?

  • Special clothing or uniforms (like with sports)

  • Rental equipment (like for music lessons)

What CLUTTER-FREE gift would you like to receive this holiday season? Let me know in the comments!


Be sure you take the time to ask yourself ALL of these questions BEFORE picking an activity to give. Imagine the disappointment if you give someone a gift certificate to an event, only to discover they had no way to getting to that event or that they couldn't get off of work in time for the event. You wouldn't want to give a child a pool pass if they're afraid of water. You wouldn't want to give a child an "event pass" to build intricate Lego structures if they struggle with fine motor skills. You want to select an experience that they will be able to enjoy.


So if you're stuck thinking about what to give, here some fun clutter-free gift ideas!!!
