Christmas Gift Ideas for the (somewhat) Minimalist

Christmas Gift Ideas for the (somewhat) Minimalist

I was looking through my old blog posts from last year, and came across an old holiday blog post titled, “My Favorite Things – Christmas Gift Ideas”.  As I was scrolling through the post, I realized how different I feel these days.  My old blog post was full of material “things” that truly only satisfied me in the moment.  And, this past year, I’ve purged so many of those things from my life – keeping only necessities AND things I use daily.  As I uncluttered my home, I felt a sense of relief.  My whole outlook on having everything I “wanted” changed.  I don’t consider myself an extreme minimalist by any means, but I do understand why people choose a minimalistic lifestyle.

So, this year I’ve decided my blog post of Christmas gift suggestions will circle around things I need &/or will use daily and life experiences I want to have…rather than material items that serve me no purpose.  This year, I only want the “things” that improve my life and make me a happier person on a daily basis without adding too much clutter to my life.  The rest can go… 🙂

 

Christmas Gift Ideas for the (somewhat) Minimalist 🙂

 

1- SELF CARE ITEMS – because taking care of ME makes me a happier person!
