The Ultimate Clutter Free Gift Giving Guide

The Ultimate Clutter Free Gift Giving Guide
Earlier this year, I wrote an entire series of clutter-free gifts ideas and they have been more popular than I ever anticipated!

For our own family, we try to model that relationships are far more important than material possessions. But that task is difficult in our material driven culture.
As we look toward the coming months of gift-giving holidays, here are some clutter free and non-toy gift ideas to pull from:

    We’re planning a toy-free holiday this year, so it’s going to be tons of books for a new reader in the family, gift certificates for fun activities, and maybe a family movie or game to share. I am truly thankful right now that the girls are still happily playing with the toys they received last year, so while spoil their fun with new stuff while they are still enjoying themselves?

    This is a really great list (or lists, lol) that I will definitely be referring to this holiday season! Thanks!
