If you are like me, you don’t need any more “stuff.” I have put together a list of clutter-free gift ideas that are great for the holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, any of the special days.

Everyone loves to EAT, right? A gift basket of favorite snacks is always a hit. I always try to add a tin of cashews for my dad as he is SUPER hard to buy for.
- Fruit baskets (I LOVE my Harry & David’s Pears!)
- Homemade cookies
- Homemade breads
- Restaurant gift cards
- Coffee gift cards
- Cashews and other nuts
- Lottery tickets (why not?!)
Memory books and photo gifts are always popular ideas. They do take some pre-planning on your part, though. In the past, I have made photo calendars for the grandparents that are super fun and easy to make especially when you use a website like Shutterfly.com.
- Family Cookbook (I treasure the ones my family has made in the past)
- Grandparents book
- Photo Calendar
- Other customized photo gifts like notepads, post-it notes, pens, etc.
Experiences will be remembered forever, where things will be forgotten. Groupon usually offers great discounts on local places.
- Concert tickets
- Sporting Events
- Zip Line
- Axe Throwing
- DIY workshops like Board & Brush
- Movie gift cards
- Theater tickets
Memberships are a gift that can last the entire year. I love this an alternative to toys for kids as well.
- Children’s Museums
- Theme Parks
- Any “of the Month” Clubs
- Jump zones
For people or kids who love to continue learning, these are some ideas for them!
Time saving ideas are often great gifts. If you are on a budget, making a coupon booklet with some of these time saving ideas would be wonderful. I am still holding onto a coupon booklet with a free foot massage from one of my kiddos. Seriously, tho, what tired mom wouldn’t love an evening or afternoon of free babysitting from a friend.
- House cleaner
- Dinner Out
- Professional organizer
- Car Wash
