We’ve put together a round-up of the best consumables, subscriptions and experiences to ask for or give to the minimalist in your life to ensure a clutter-free Christmas!
The Gift of Happiness
Money can’t buy you happiness…or can it? The School of Life’s vouchers can be used for a range of different gifts such as workshops, psychotherapy (face-to-face or online), classes and products, all with a focus on leading a more fulfilled life.
For Plant Lovers
Give the gift of clean air and green fingers with a monthly or quarterly plant subscription box. Bloombox have a great selection of statement plants that can be delivered in stylish ceramic pots, complete with a care card to keep your plant happy.
For the Cheese Aficionado
Who wouldn’t love a surprise box of cheese arriving on their doorstep?! Order a one-off or monthly box from The Cheese Society and they will handpick five delicious cheeses, sent with a fact sheet so you can brush up on your fromage knowledge.
For the Coffee Geek
Coffee geeks will love this clutter-free Christmas present; you can study the origins of your favourite coffee with this personalised subscription service. Driftaway starts by sending you a taster kit, which you then rate and get sent regular coffee beans tailored to your taste. Each box also contains a postcard about the growers and their region.
For Bake Off Fans
Learn to bake like a pro with these monthly kits from Baked In, which include a step by step recipe card by famed pastry chef Michel Roux, plus all the dry ingredients needed to whip up a truly impressive cake creation.
Join the Carnivore Club
Perfect for the meat-lover in your life, Cannon & Cannon’s packages include the pantry staple box, the daring discovery box, or the world’s first ever vegan meat box – which sounds like an oxymoron, but is actually filled with meat that’s grazed exclusively on plants.
