The List: romantic Gift Ideas for the minimalist love of your life
These ideas involve clutter-free gifts and experiences. Pick one or more, and plan a special day where your sweetie will feel loved and appreciated, and you're sure to sweep them off their feet.
1. make them breakfast
It's a special treat to wake up to a favorite breakfast, and it is also a caring way to pamper your sweetheart. Pay attention to their favorites, and start out the day by making it all about them.
Putting in the effort to get up early and make a special breakfast will make them feel loved and appreciated!
You can't go wrong with making their favorites, or find some breakfast ideas here.
2. A massage
This is a gift idea I have heard over and over again as a favorite. Give your sweetie a long massage, or let them take a break and go get a professional massage.
Massage is also AWESOME for improving overall health and healing by aiding the body in removing toxins and improving circulation.
Check with your local massage studio for gift cards, or buy one on Groupon!
3. Choc0late, Wine, or other consumables
Spoil them a little with something they love but don't usually buy themselves. Fancy chocolate, baked goods, wine (if they drink it), or other food items they love will be much appreciated! If you know they are gluten-free, dairy-free or on another special diet, and you find something delicious they can have anyway, you might be their hero!
4. A Class or something for their hobby
Does your significant other have a hobby they love? A gift of supplies, equipment, or classes for their hobby can be SUPER meaningful, because it shows you are investing in them. It also communicates that taking some time out for themselves is ok!
One of the best gifts I have ever received was a pottery class! It was a birthday gift from my husband, and also offered the chance for a night out each week (doing something I loved), while he took care of everything at home.
You can find some ideas for classes on Groupon , find out what supplies they need for their hobby, or purchase a gift card for supplies.
5. bring their favorite beverage
Show them you pay attention to their tastes by stopping to get their favorite fancy drink, or make it at home. This is a sweet and thoughtful gift for coffee and tea lovers!
For an extra touch, put it in a special cup, and make sure they get a break to sit and enjoy. Sit down to enjoy with them if you can, but be the one to get up if the kids need something!
You could even get a sweet mug set like one of these (as long as they don't have too many mugs!).
6. Take them out on a date
The classic date night is a great idea for a romantic minimalist gift!
Set up the sitter, plan out an evening based around their tastes, and take them out. You can certainly ask for their input if you're not sure, or surprise them with a plan you know they'll love! They will enjoy not having to do the work of planning, and also love spending time with you!
You can get restaurant, event, or other date night gift certificates on Groupon .
7. A nice dinner at home
If you don't have the time to go out (or a sitter), a date night at home can still be romantic and relaxing. Just center the meal around their favorite dishes, and add some small touches like flowers on the table, a salad or soup before the main course, wine, and/or candles.
If you have kids, you could eat a light snack when you feed them dinner, and have dinner with your sweetie after bedtime. Or arrange to drop them off with a sitter.
Unsure of what to cook? You could always order a box from Sunbasket that comes with all the ingredients and the recipe, or pick up their favorite takeout.
8. get away together
If you are able to get away for a weekend, there is nothing like some uninterrupted time together! You don't have to go far. You could choose anything from a cozy cabin, a nice hotel, or a favorite destination.
You can find some great deals (and unique homes and destinations) on Airbnb, or search local hotels in your area.
9. A Digital Mix Tape
A throwback to the mixtapes of the 80s: buy them a digital music subscription, and make them a playlist of meaningful songs! They'll love the time you spend picking out songs to show how much you love them: songs from your wedding or love songs that remind you of them!
10. a handwritten card, journal, or book
A handwritten card, a journal you can write back and forth in, or a book of your story together are meaningful and touching gifts for the love of your life.
Use a blank journal, or check out this one you can do together!
Or you could create a personalized book with words and photos through Snapfish.
I hope this has given you some ideas to show your love for that special person in your life. When you focus on their interests and what's important to them, they'll feel loved and pampered and fall for you all over again. <3
