17 non-clutter gifts ideas that will please adults and kids

Before you buy traditional gifts such as random clothes, funny pajamas, accessories, home decor, and other items, consider deciding this year for non-clutter gifts and letting people who you care about enjoy this small portion of benefits of a minimalist lifestyle.

I, personally, don’t like to get gifts. Why?

  • Because every object you get is an object for which you have to find a place and for which you have to care.
  • Not to mention items that don’t match your style or needs at all!

The solution is thinking of gifts that the person who gets it will enjoy, something connected with their interests or needs. Or gifts that will give moments of joy, help to grow skills, dive into hobbies without being a burden.

3 | How to Create a Microbusiness That Matters – course by Courtney Carver

Who is Courtney Carver? She is a woman who, after having MS diagnosed, decided that she has to change her life in order to stay in as good condition as possible. It required big lifestyle changes as she decided to first and foremost minimize the stress in her life.

One big part of it was switching from being employed to running her own corner of the Internet, sharing her experiences and knowledge about simple living and health, creating her own (now trademarked) project to teach people to dress with a capsule wardrobe.

She now earns through affiliate marketing, her own books, courses, and speaking. The platform on which she grew all of these sources of income is her blog.

Now, Courtney shares how she went from zero to having her own business, supporting her financial needs but not draining her health and personal life.

The course is simple but packed with lots of content and ideas, teaching how to run a blog in a way that aligns with our values.

MY EXPERIENCES WITH COURTNEY’S COURSE: I’ve taken it and find it an important step on the way to where I am now. What’s the most important for me is that the way showed respects our values, our private lives and lets to do everything on our own pace – it is essential when your priorities are family and home, and you’re unable to hurry up and work hard, dedicating 20 hours every day to your business venture.

6 | Dress with Less and Create Your Capsule Wardrobe – the course by Courtney Carver

Decluttering the whole life might seem difficult. It’s reasonable to start a minimalist journey with baby steps, for example beginning with a review of the closet.

A step by step guide, including rules, examples and successful people’s stories.

7. A Simple Year 2019

[The registration for the course is closed. You can check other Courtney’s courses: Creating a Capsule Wardrobe, Creating a Microbusiness or the discounted Productivity Bundle 2019].

A slow and deep way to start a simple living journey. Every month has its dedicated subject and dedicated author – expert in the certain field and simple living enthusiast and practitioner at the same time. Every month articles and audio or video material is sent.

The program includes live webinars and a private Facebook group, gathering like-minded and supportive people.

Subjects include: clutter, money, wardrobe, food, travel, nature, kids, family, self-care, digital, relationships, gifts, gratitude, busyness.

Among the experts are authors I follow: Courtney Carver, Colin Wright, and TheMinimalists. A powerful team!


Non-clutter gifts can be material if the stuff will give us benefits but won’t be in our home forever.

Consumables are a good choice because they give joy and aren’t an obligation forever.

8 | good food or supplements

Buy something that is edible but not necessarily usual. You can choose something that the person wouldn’t buy for herself because she thinks it’s too expensive or extravagant.

9 | good cosmetics

Look for something that won’t harm the health. Pass by average shop balms, creams, lotions and go for something including mostly natural ingredients.

It can be something as simple as the raspberry seed oil that I personally use as my sunscreen and which makes my skin so soft that I cannot stop touching it.

10 | time together

Is there anything more precious today than a time spent with loved ones or friends, offline, with pleasure, talks and laugh? Let it be a trip, a hike, a walk, a day or night spent away from your daily duties.

Think about such a gift especially if your close person speaks the love language of the time (like me, so I know perfectly what I’m writing about).

11 | a simple dinner

It’s one variation of time spent together. Organize an afternoon when you’ll bring all needed ingredients (and of course ideas what to cook!) and prepare a delicious meal (or you can make cooking together fun). Eat with pleasure 😉

12 | ask what they want

Pots? Beddings? A sweater? Socks? A mug? Good quality piece of clothing? A woolen sweater?

bonus: for a mom

13 | DIY tickets for babysitting

Certainly, one of my favorite non-clutter gifts to get. We, moms, often can feel overwhelmed. No home spa cosmetics would give us such pleasure (no time for it or constant yelling from behind the door Mamaaa! Coooome!), no sweets would give us such pleasure (we have to it them in conspiracy hiding in the dark kitchen when kids are sleeping) as the gift of time without our little loved but tiring ones!

If your sister, daughter or close friends is a mom of little kids, give her the gift of a few hours when you’ll babysit the kids at their home or go out with them. And the mom could sleep, watch a movie and eat interrupted or have a date with her husband!

It is worth so much more than any other gifts!
