Give the Gift of Organization: 10 Clutter-Free Gift Ideas

by Tina ~ December 2nd, 2015.

giftExchanging gifts with friends and family often involves a bit of stress. Will they like it? Will they use it? Will it give them more clutter to deal with? Give yourself the gift of less stress by offering a clutter-free gift. Here are a few clutter-free ideas to get your imagination moving.

1. Yoga Classes

Yoga has been around for centuries, but it’s more popular than ever. It’s no wonder, because yoga increases flexibility, reduces stress, boosts immunity, eases migraines, enhances sexual performance, improves sleep, and lessens food cravings! (Source: Daily Burn)

Explore YogaToronto to find different styles of yoga classes for everyone on your shopping list, from kids to seniors. Not sure what they’d like? Buy a Passport to Prana which allows them to attend one class at each participating studio in the city! It’s not just for beginners either – it’s a also great gift for budding teachers or committed yogis who want to check things out at various different spots.

2. Mala Making Workshop

Meditation is another ancient practice that’s growing in popularity, and a mala making workshop will give your loved one an opportunity to learn about mala meditation while designing their very own mala necklace. Workshops are being held this Saturday at Kula Oakville and this Sunday at Kula Annex. Sign yourself up too, to make it a shared experience!

3. Foot Massage

Do you know someone who deserves to be pampered? The Evergreen Beauty & Wellness Centre in Chinatown does a fabulous foot massage for an unbelievably reasonable price.

4. iTunes Gift Card

iTunes gift cards can be used for apps, books, music, TV shows and more! You can buy them in various denominations at Apple.com or pretty well any store that carries gift cards.

5. Zipcar Gift Card

Between high costs and increasing concern for the environment, lots of people are opting out of car ownership. A Zipcar car sharing membership is just the “ticket” for those times when the TTC isn’t “The Better Way.”

6. CAA Membership

For those on your gift list who do own a car, you can’t go wrong by giving them a CAA membership.

Let me tell you what happened to me one summer. I had the car entirely packed and ready to go to the cottage. The cooler was in the car and the cat was in his carrier, safely in the back seat. The car was FILLED to the brim. We got in, ready to drive away – and the car wouldn’t start! I called CAA and they towed me, my partner, and the cat out to the cottage. We dropped the car at a nearby mechanic, had a friend pick us and all our gear up, went to the cottage, and while we lazed in the sun, my car got repaired.

A CAA Plus membership is only $85 per year, and believe me, it’s worth every penny!

7. Fuel Gift Card

Another thing needed by all car owners is GAS! Whether they prefer Petro Canada, Esso, Shell, Canadian Tire, Husky or Pioneer, you’ll have no trouble finding a gift card.

8. Good Food Box

Everyone has to eat, and who wouldn’t appreciate a box of fresh, high quality organic fruits and vegetables? Contact FoodShare to learn more about the Good Food Box program.

9. Cooking Class

Speaking of food, how about a cooking class for your foodie friend? Just like yoga, there are cooking classes for all skill levels and tastes, but for something new and different, check out BlogTO’s top 5 new cooking classes in Toronto.

10. Spot On Organizing gift certificate

For the person on your shopping list who already has everything they need, but nowhere to put it, consider a gift certificate from Spot On Organizing. Check out our packages and pricing, then email me for additional information or to order your gift certificate.
