Minimalist Gift Guide: What to Buy for Minimalists

Christmas time and other gift giving holidays are so fun, right?! But, when you or someone you know is trying to embrace a minimalist lifestyle, it can kind of suck the fun out of presents! But, it doesn’t have to be that way! You can still give and get great gifts as a minimalist. It’s all about being intentional and giving gifts with a purpose. So, here’s a minimalist gift guide to help you figure out what to buy for minimalists on your gift list this year!

When trying to decide what to put on your wish list or what to gift someone that is trying to simplify, you’ve got to think strategically. Ask yourself these questions:

  • What hobbies do they enjoy?
  • What do they need?
  • What would make them feel pampered?
  • What would they not buy for themselves?
  • Do they have a favorite brand/company?

Those questions can help you pinpoint what to get. You don’t want to add more clutter to their home. You don’t want to buy something that they won’t use, they don’t need, or they already have. And whatever you end up buying, make sure it’s high quality. A minimalist takes pride in quality over quantity. They want something that will last for years!


Our homes are our havens, our sanctuaries. So, as minimalists, we want the best! Every kitchen should have high quality tools to make life easier! But sometimes we don’t want to splurge on those high-quality things. Here are some great kitchen ideas that she will love:

1. Kitchen Aid

2. Vitamix

3. Knives

4. Metal Measuring cups

5. Cutting Board
