Celebrating the holiday season doesn’t mean you have to be stressed out and inundated with gifts and STUFF. The key to having a minimalist Christmas is to celebrate with intention. That could mean just getting together with friends and family for a delicious meal, jetting off to somewhere warm or donating your time to serve others. Here are some ways to have a fabulous minimalist Christmas.
HOW TO HAVE A FABULOUS MINIMALIST CHRISTMAS
Celebrate A MINIMALIST CHRISTMAS with a Destination
One of the easiest ways to have a minimalist Christmas is to travel somewhere and celebrate the holidays out of your regular space. This avoids the need to decorate and to store gifts if you are trying to avoid all that this season. Need some ideas on where to travel?

Decorate Simply and with Intention
I’ve spoken on this before but my readers should know I love the decorate for the holidays. The difference between a minimalist and one who doesn’t practice it is intention. I only choose decor items I LOVE and I’m constantly editing what I own to reflect only items that hold significance. Here are some minimalist Christmas decor items I love!
Switch Up Your GiftING MINDSET
Some minimalists happily participate in gift exchanges and here is how they do it. They gift experiences or consumables! One of my favorite gifts to give are edible bouquets, snack sets or Christmas cookies. My sister does a huge batch of Christmas cookies and desserts to gift to the rest of us. It keeps costs down and there isn’t a ton of stuff or packaging to deal with. Experiences can be tickets to a Covid friendly activity like a rooftop movie theater or drive-in!
WANT, NEED, WEAR, READ
If you have children consider the want need, wear, read gift guidelines for them. Choose a thoughtful gift that they want, one that they need, one that they can wear and one book to read! Need some ideas? What if you gift them a Christmas movie or puzzle and challenge the entire family to complete it!
Serve Others THIS YEAR FOR A MINIMALIST CHRISTMAS
Another way to have a minimalist Christmas is to serve others. Consider donating time or money to an organizations that feeds the homeless or provides gifts to families in need!
