As an organizer, isn’t it my duty to suggest some non-thing gift ideas? I’ve scoured the web, and here are some of the best ideas I’ve seen. Borrow the ideas this year - I’m going to!
Chronicle your family history by assembling photographs, letters, and important documents.
Frame a meaningful photograph or put together a photo album or book of family recipes.
Give children a gift of music or sports lessons instead of another toy. As a parent, I know these are NOT cheap experiences!
Give the gift of time. Begin with a gift certificate that offers babysitting, a home-cooked meal, or a monthly lunch date with a relative or friend.
Donate to a charity in the name of a loved one.
Give fair trade items such as tea, coffee, or chocolate (and consumable items that don’t leave a trace are great, too - no clutter)!
Give homemade baked goods, potpourri, or a dried herb wreath.
Create a special memory by going to a ball game, to a museum, or on a camping trip.
And here are a few random acts of kindness for the holidays that I just couldn’t resist sharing, too:
Pay for the car behind you at the toll booth during holiday road trips.
Leave potted flowers or herbs anonymously on a friend's doorstep.
Make an emergency kit gift basket with a blanket, flashlight, gas can, jumper cables, and flares.
Give away the last great book you bought and enjoyed to someone who shares your taste.
Have a re-gift swap. Get together a few like-minded friends and trade tchotchkes.
'Tis the season to be jolly, right?
