As the holidays approach, shopping for gifts for family and friends is nearing the top of most people’s To Do Lists. Many struggle with trying to stay organized, and the most thoughtful gifts may not be the answer to your loved one’s organizational issues, but at the very least, the gifts you choose to give could strive to not become clutter.
There are many good options for gift ideas that won’t cause clutter and here are some of my favorite ideas out on the internet:

Andrea Dekker is a blogger who has written many times about various clutter-free gift ideas. In one post about giving experiences rather than physical gifts, Andrea says:
“Experience gifts can be a little more time-consuming to plan… and they aren’t necessarily inexpensive, but they are a fantastic clutter-free gift that your recipient will probably remember for a very long time.”
