Gift giving can be stressful for both the gift giver and the recipient. As a gift giver, you want to find just the right thing. As a recipient, you may feel stressed out by the thought of finding places for these new things. I am personally a fan of “experience” gifts. I love finding fun things to do with the ones I love or give them an opportunity to get out and have a fun experience.
With the being said, stuff and gifts are tricky because what one person calls clutter, another person may not.
To me, the definition of a non-clutter gift would be experiences or things that are: fun, useful, or add value to your life (i.e. make you happy).
When looking for a gift ask yourself these 3 questions:
Is it consumable?
Would they prefer an experience?
Is it useful in many context or extremely useful for one?
Here is a list of things I think most people would enjoy.

Money- for college fund or if they are saving for a car
