Nifty Gifty Ideas for any Holiday

gift ideas

I stink at choosing gifts because I agonize over each gift, buy it, return it and cross my fingers they like it.  Then I wised up and decided to stop buying stuff for the sake of buying stuff.  It didn’t feel aligned with who I am (the Queen of decluttering).

If you want to be more intentional about giving gifts that are more along the lines of experiences or consumables I came up with this whopper of a list.

National or state park entrance stickers

Tuition for lessons (cooking, horseback riding, piano, golf, painting, etc)

Memberships (museum, zoo, golf course, pool, health club, yoga studio)

Summer camp tuition

Car wash coupons

Coffee or tea

Cookies or a meal

Wine and cheese

Flowers or an amaryllis plant

Lawn mowing, gardening, snow shoveling, or house cleaning


Escape room

Tickets to a concert, theater, or sporting event

Postage stamps

Gasoline gift cards

Grocery gift cards

A dinner or lunch date

C.S.A. membership

Share this list with friends and family.  It’ll bring more ease to any gift-giving occasion.
