Minimalists, the hardest of all people to buy for. What do you get for the kind of person who hates 'stuff'? The terms 'minimalist' and 'gift' are essentially opposites, so we've put together a little guide with some ideas for what to buy that tricky Tina.
1. Ari Single Shelf - Urban Outfitters
Small, simple and wipe clean, this little shelf turns a room into a 'space'. Pop a cactus and a candle on it (ooh... more gift ideas?) and your minimalist will be insta ready. Why not go one better, and offer to install it for them? Gives you an excuse to pop round for a coffee and see your pal and makes your present extra special.
2. Small Acrylic Drawers - Muji
There are few people who I wouldn't recommend the acrylic range from Muji to. All of the pieces are just SO perfect and organised and amazing. Store your make-up, jewellery, stationary, spices, ribbons, ANYTHING. Just store it. And store it well. Your minimalist with appreciate this. Guaranteed.
3. Simple Stud Earrings - Sederhana
Of course we couldn't miss out a piece of our simple jewellery, literally made for the minimalist - just pop 'Sederhana' into Google translate!
Stars, hearts, or hammered circles, we definitely have something for every ear. Head over to our earrings collection and see what takes your fancy. Maybe treat yourself too... use discount code youdeserveit for 15% off your entire order.
4. Nude Striped Phone Case - Etsy
Phone cases are the new shoes. We love them when we get them, when they get a bit worn, we want a new one and you can never have too many. We're so over marble, and so on stripes, especially if they're nude. Pop over to Etsy and grab this cute little number for your bezzie, just make sure you know which phone she's got at the moment!
5. Reuseable cutlery set - Bare Vida
This reusable bamboo cutlery set from Bare Vida has everything you could possibly need to have a convenient but eco-friendly lunch-on-the-go. Encourage your friend to take part in the anti plastic movement (alongside you, obvs).
With a bamboo knife, fork, spoon, chopsticks, straw and napkin - all contained in a sleek, cotton black pencil case - there’s a utensil for any cuisine. It packs up small in your bag so it can be your eco-friendly partner in crime that you can whip out in cafes whenever single-use plastics are offered to you.
Plus, it’s all handmade in Bali (like Sederhana) so it’s top quality and all made ethically which we love.
