Whether we like it or not, Valentines Day is almost here. Which can be difficult a difficult time of the year for those with the perpetual decluttering bug. As what gift can you give your loved ones that actually conveys your love and adoration for those nearest and dearest to you, while remaining affordable and clutter-free?
This is especially true for minimalists. Those who are seeking to lavish their love on others without living in a cluttered space, here are 5 gift ideas that might help you find just the right gift for your loved ones this coming Valentine’s Day.
DIY vouchers: Make your own individual digital or printable voucher. consider giving the gift of a day without the kids, a day of cleaning, handyman services, or a couple’s massage at home. The possibilities are endless. Looking for an affordable design tool? Check out Canva – it’s an awesome freebie design tool.
Canva hosts a ton of free templates and design layouts that allow you to upload your own, customized, unique vouchers, cards, and gifts. In under 5 minutes, you can give your loved ones a gift truly from the heart! A gift anyone would be happy to receive!
Volunteer together: While this gift might not seem like the most romantic gesture in the world, volunteering together can bring couples closer than ever. Plugging into a volunteer position, where your loved one’s talents shine, can help you both feel better about yourself as well as fostering a sense of purpose in the world.
Then what’s the best way to end a day of giving back to others and promoting kindness in your community? A well-deserved dinner out, that is! And you’ll then have plenty feel-good stuff to discuss over dinner too!
Breakfast in bed: Can you think of a better way of lavishing love on others than a homemade breakfast in bed? Especially a pancake breakfast in bed! Be still my heart, and ever-expanding waistline! A simple homemade breakfast is a fast and economical way of showing others how much you care!
Looking for a healthier alternative? Pancakes made with mashed bananas, organic vanilla extract, almond milk, and coconut flour are as nutritious as they are delicious! Give them a try this year!
Write a letter to each other: Before you envision your partner rolling their eyes at this gesture, hear me out: Prose and poetry can not only convey your love and affection to others but help you share sentiments that often get left unsaid. Sharing how much you appreciate someone speaks volumes. Especially on the most romantic day of the year.
Grab some nice paper and a couple of cute envelopes and write the letter the night before to exchange on Valentine’s Day. It’s sweet. It’s old-fashioned. And in your own minimalist way, you can give Lord Byron a run for his money.
Give an awesome online gift: While it’s easy to say that as a minimalist we should only invest in experience gifts, that’s simply not true. For many, giving tangible gifts is simple their love language. Especially when you can give gifts online, with minimal mess, and with various budget-styles in mind.
One of my favorite online shops, My Gift Stop, an online shop offering luxury goods dedicated to giving back to society, is one of my favorite places to shop each Valentine’s Day.
My favorite part? With each order, My Gift Stop will donate 5% of every sale to the global medical relief nonprofit, Direct Relief. Making this a minimalist, feel-good way to give to others this coming season.
