Giving a gift can be a time-consuming and challenging task, especially if you feel like you're giving something to anyone. So to make the process easier, here are a few gifts for minimalist people that they might enjoy.
Minimalist people generally have an appreciation for the simpler things in life. However, giving something to them can be difficult, especially if you don't know what they need or want. Here are some ideas that might help you out.
1. A Blanket Scarf
These wraps are great for staying warm, and they also allow you to stay comfortable while traveling around, as they can be used as blankets/pillows, and they're easy to pack away in a suitcase.
2. A Pair of Sunglasses
Even if you're not the kind of person who wants to go around wearing sunglasses, a pair of sunglasses make great gifts for minimalist people. They are cheap and can be used in a variety of ways.
3. Hooded Sweatshirt
These are great for layering underneath winter clothes. They also look good with other clothing, such as t-shirts and jeans.
4. A Mouse Pad
If your friend has a laptop, these things are handy because keeping your laptop clean is impossible unless you buy him new mousepads every week.
5. A Backup Hard Drive
If he or she has a laptop, chances they need one of these. They come in handy if their laptop breaks and prevents you from being able to access important files.
6. A Multi-Tool
These handy dandy things can be used for various purposes and are great for the minimalist man who likes to do things around the house himself rather than hire people.
7. A Security Camera
If you've got a friend who lives independently or has to walk home late at night, these things can be great gifts for minimalist people (depending on their level of trust in humanity).
8. Electronic Feet Callus Remover
These things are a lot better than using razors to file down your calluses manually, and they are adorable if you want to go swimming or do other activities but don't want to have rough feet.
9. A Headlamp
If you have a friend who loves the outdoors, this is an excellent gift for them as it can help them look at things in the dark when nature calls.
10. A Box of Chocolates
OK, so this might not be a true minimalist gift per se as it isn't exactly helpful in any way (though it does taste great). Still, it's a nice gesture if your friend feels down or needs a boost of energy.
11. A Kindle
This tiny little gadget can be a lot of fun, especially when it comes to reading books. Your friend can also read their favorite books without having to carry around a stack of books.
12. A Candle
This is another inexpensive gift, and it's perfect for someone who's got an office or a home that needs some aromatherapy.
13. A Book
Suppose you're looking for a gift for the minimalist person in your life. In that case, you should look into getting them a book, mainly if it contains useful information about minimalist living (such as how to save money or deal with clutter).
14. A Backpack
These might not be the most exciting gifts for minimalist people, but if you know that your friend or family member is an avid hiker, this is something that they might want and appreciate for their trips to the outdoors.
15. A Money Clip
If you have a friend or family member who likes to keep track of their money on the go, this is a nice gift for them.
16. A Set of Decorative Containers
You can get these in many different styles and sizes, and they are great for organizing things such as rings, keys, and other small items that you want to keep in one place.
17. The Foldable Shower Caddy
This is another excellent gift if you have a friend who loves to take showers but doesn't want to carry around bulky shower caddies that take up space.
18. A Small Bottle of Shampoo
These bottles are great for taking with you when you're traveling, and they're also great for traveling abroad as they can be used to wash your hair at public showers.
19. A Canvas Purse
Who doesn't need a good canvas purse these days? If your friend or family member loves the outdoors, this can be their go-to bag, especially if it's water-resistant.
20. A Travel Journal
These can be great gifts for minimalist people who like to keep track of the places they visit. If you're a travel blogger, you might want to consider getting your favorite minimalist friend this gift so that they can keep track of their travels as well.
21. A Rechargeable Fan
Summer isn't too far away, and if your friend doesn't want to have a bunch of cords trailing after them whenever they go camping or hiking, this is an excellent option for them.
22. A Retro Camera
If you know someone who loves photography or is interested in it, this is the perfect gift for them – especially if they have an old-fashioned camera from back in the day that they want to display.
23. A Small, Portable Charger
If you have a friend who's always losing their chargers, this can be a nice gift for them. There are even some cordless ones that work on a watch battery.
24. A Pair of Workout Gloves
If you have a friend who loves to work out, this is an excellent gift for them as it will make their workouts more enjoyable and less painful if they're lifting weights at the gym or using free weights at home.
25. A Hanging Toiletry Kit
If your friend likes to travel, they might want to consider getting one of these – especially if they plan on staying in hostels or dorms during their travels.
26. A Compact Bluetooth Speaker
Give your friend the gift of music, with the option to listen to it outdoors without having to deal with tangled cords.
27. A Microfiber Towel
If your friend loves the beach or going on hikes, this is an excellent gift for them as they can dry off their equipment without having to use a bunch of paper towels.
28. A Lunch Box Kit
If you have a friend who's always bringing their lunch to work, give them this gift and make sure they don't forget anything in their lunch box – especially if it's an insulated kit that comes with an ice pack.
29. An Electronic Luggage Scale
If you have a friend who likes to travel and fly in planes, get them this gift to know how much weight they can have in their luggage without overdoing it.
30. A Game of Chess Set
This is a good gift for friends who enjoy playing chess, as it's always fun to play against each other. The next time they want to challenge you, they can do so without resorting to any other cheating methods. If this doesn't appeal to them, you might want to consider getting them a smaller version of chess.
31. A Bluetooth Headset
If your friend uses their phone to listen to music while they're on the go, this is an excellent gift for them.
33. A Joke Book
Even though your friend might be upset that you gave them this book, it should be remembered that there are worse gifts out there – like giving your dog antlers or giving someone who's 70 years old a handcycle.
34. A Folding Pocket Knife
If your friend likes to go camping or hiking, this is a great gift to get them. It's a small knife to keep in their pocket so that they don't have to worry about it getting lost.

If you have a friend who loves to travel, consider getting them this kit so that they can do their laundry wherever they go.
