Gift Ideas for Minimalists
If you are looking for gift ideas for minimalists, this gift guide is for you. It will help you find practical, useful and thoughtful consumable gifts that are great for Christmas and every occasion.
The holidays are almost here! The time of year when we all get to reflect on the year that has passed and plan for the year to come. But what about those people who want to live a life with less?
Minimalists love to live with less stuff and are intentional with what they own. They get rid of the unnecessary so they can focus on what is important to their lives.
As a minimalist, I’m going to give you ideas of what practical and usable gifts minimalists would love to receive. And the most important is these things don’t clutter up their home and life.

French Press Coffee Maker
Enjoying a steaming cup of coffee is part of my morning routine. If you haven’t used a French press coffee maker before, you need to give it a try.
A French press coffee maker is an inexpensive coffee maker when you compare it to Keurig. Plus, it’s more environmentally friendly.
You just only need hot water and ground coffee beans with this French press coffee maker to brew a perfect cup of coffee. No more tiny plastic cups dump in the landfill. Additionally, the coffee grounds are a great addition to the garden and compost pile.
An electric kettle is definitely a must-have for tea lovers. I like this glass tea kettle. It’s able to boil water quickly, completely cordless when off the base and easy to handle.
Tea lovers also like to use the tea infuser to brew tea. I enjoy having a cup of fresh full flavored tea in winter. It is easy to use and clean, and this set of 4 can also be run in the dishwasher.
Pure Beeswax Candles
Be careful that most scented candles are made of paraffin wax that releases harmful toxins into your home.
If you are like me and love to place candles to make the home feel cozier and purify the indoor air, buy 100% pure beeswax candles. Or if you want to make DIY beeswax candles, try this easy recipe.
Essential Oil Diffuser
What about gifting an aromatherapy device like this one? I love using essential oils to lift my mood and relieve stress.

Kindle Paperwhite e-reader
Many book lovers would like to have a Kindle Paperwhite. This Kindle Paperwhite is thin and lightweight, and the auto-adjusting front light lets you read comfortably in bright sunlight, day and night.
More features come with the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition like hassle-free wireless charging, longer battery life and 32GB storage.
Audible membership is perfect for people who don’t have the time or energy to read. I like listening to audiobooks while I’m cleaning the house. Many people love listening to audiobooks when they do exercising, do chores or on the commute.
Noise Cancelling Headphones
This pair of wireless noise-canceling headphones is one of the best quality on the market. One of the best gifts for a music lover or a big fan of audiobooks.
Touchscreen Winter Gloves
Keep your hands warm with these touchscreen winter gloves so you can still be able to use your devices outside without exposing your hands in the cold weather.
Plaid Blanket Scarf
I love blanket scarves so much. A blanket scarf is practical for daily wear in the cold season. You can roll it up as a pillow or take it with you when traveling on the plane. This stylish plaid blanket scarf is perfect for winter that will keep you warm and cozy.
I use a paper planner to plan my week, month and year ahead. It is one of the best ways to stay motivated and keep focused on my goals.
If you’re looking for a classic planner, this one is great. I personally use a Traveler’s Notebook to do my bullet journaling and I always have 3 different inserts in it. Using a paper planner helps me stay organized and be more productive.

I love my vacuum cleaner which works so well both on my hard floor and carpet. It has strong suction power that gets the job done faster. I’ve always recommended it to my friends when they wanted an affordable and good-quality vacuum cleaner.

Who doesn’t like gift cards? I like giving gift cards to teachers. You can’t go wrong with Amazon gift cards and Starbucks gift cards.

Homemade Baked Goods
I love baking Christmas cookies at this time of year. Baking Christmas cookies is a special part of the holidays for our family. We love baking them and sharing them with friends and family. They are always perfect for holiday gift-giving.
Your Time and Love
When it comes to Christmas, is also about giving and sharing. During the holidays, it can be easy to get caught up in all of the shopping and festivities. Don’t forget to take the chance to spend more quality time with your family and dedicate your time to helping people in need over the holidays.
