15 Holiday Gift Ideas That Don’t Create Clutter

Holiday gift ideas are easy to find for young children. Young children grow quickly and move through various stages of toys they like. The tougher question is, what gifts do you get for the teens and adults on your list? After all, these are the folks who may already have homes full of the latest electronic gadgets and who might not “need” anything.

The following are creative gift ideas which are experience oriented. Best of all, these items don’t create clutter in your home!

1.  Spring Break or Summer camp enrollment is a great gift for tweens and teens.
2.  Cooking classes from PCC or Sur La Table are a wonderful gift for young and old.
3.  A gift of lift tickets at a local mountain is appreciated by teen or adult skiers.
4.  A photo book of a recent trip is a great gift for grandparents.
5.  Airplane tickets for college students or young adults to come home and visit are very appreciated.
6.  A gift of a spa day for ladies in your family is always a hit.
7.  A mani/medi is a fun gift idea for the tween or teen in your house.
