What are some good gifts for people who don’t want anything?
My love language is words of affirmation, not gifts.
That doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate gifts when folks give them to me.
I just usually don’t know what to ask for.
I have a sweet family, a great job, my health is steady—what more do I need?
But I’m blessed to have folks in my life who love to spoil me, and I’ve learned to receive that!
That still leaves me with one issue. What can I tell people who ask for suggestions about what to get me?
When someone says they don’t want any gifts
One thing that I want to clarify before I share this list is that, if someone has made it really clear to you that they don’t want anything, don’t get them anything.
And on the other hand, if you’re the gift recipient, it is okay for you to make that clear.
I know my family loves to give, and it makes me happy to see them happy because I’m happy. Ha!
But, folks are allowed to have “no gifts and I mean it” be a boundary.
Gifts for People Who Don’t Want Anything
Okay, so now that we got that cleared up, let’s move on to the actual gifts.
Folks who don’t want anything are typically not into things that are just clutter. No knick knacks or gag gifts.
You’ll do good to look for presents that are sustainable, useful, and meaningful.
If you’re looking for gifts for tweens, I have you covered in another post.
Here’s a great list for the older folks in your life!
