Minimalist Christmas Gifts for an Eco-friendly 2020

As most of my frequent readers already know, I’ve been a devout minimalist and a firm eco-friendly enthusiast for quite a while, and I’ve got to say — this has been one of the best choices that I’ve ever made in my life! Not only do I feel happier and healthier than ever, but I’ve also managed to cut down on quite a few needless expenses. This is just the way minimalism goes — it helps your mind and wallet at the same time.

I woke up one morning and realised that I just can’t keep going like this. I had way too much needless junk at home, and I needed to make a change, or I’d go crazy. And so, I made a decision. I promised myself that I would not spend any money on unnecessary purchases for an entire year. And I’m really proud to announce that it has worked — I’ve officially spent an entire year completely junk free!

Before we begin, let’s get a couple of misconceptions out of the way:

  1. A good Christmas gift is not necessarily expensive — Remember that, more often than not, it’s the thought that counts. And I’m saying this as a (fairly) successful business leader, with multiple established brands on the market — I’ve done both the research and my fair share of thinking.
  2. A good Christmas gift is not necessarily material — Once again, going off of my marketing research: experiences make for a much better gift right now. Spa tickets and weekends are now firm favourites.
  3. Books are still cool — Despite what the internet might have you think, books still make for an exceptional Christmas gift, especially if your recipient has a passion for self-improvement! And, according to the trends, books seem to be quite the popular gift choice for the current year.

With the holidays already peeking around the corner and everyone just about ready to dive into the festivities, now comes the time for picking out presents. As always, I’ve already decided on what I’m going to be giving to my friends and loved ones (I hate leaving things for the last minute), and I figured that I might as well give you a hand. Here’s the thing about Christmas and New Year’s Eve — they’re the perfect time for new beginnings for the whole family. With a couple of minimalism-themed Christmas gifts and a couple of green New Year’s Resolutions, you can set out a solid foundation for your entire family for years to come!

And so, before we wrap it up for today, I’ve got one last innovative gift suggestion for your green holiday — an eco-friendly notebook. But how can a notebook be eco-friendly? This compact digital device allows you to enjoy the traditional pen and paper experience in an environmentally-sound way, without any paper. You can write down your notes and then upload them directly to the cloud, making them accessible from any laptop, computer or smartphone of your choosing. And the most interesting part? You can quickly and easily erase your notes by putting the notebook in your microwave. Just place a glass of tea or water on top of it, microwave for a minute, and it’ll be as good (and blank) as new!

And there you have it folks — my Top Minimalism Gifts. Hopefully, you’ve liked my suggestions, or, if at least got a bit of inspiration for your holiday shopping list.
