Top 7 Gifts That Don’t Take Up Space

Does anyone really need more “things” these days? Use our list as a starting point to finding interesting, unique, and fun gifts that won’t add clutter. This terrific array of gifts would be appropriate for any occasion—from birthdays to graduations to retirements!

  1. Self-care: Get that over-scheduled person in your life some “me” time they can’t resist. A certificate for a spa treatment, a wine-tasting session, a hot air balloon ride—just a few ideas for things they need to be fully present and put their phone away for. Or, hire a cleaning company to take a load off their plate.
  2. Culture Club: Tickets to a unique event would be so fun and memorable, whether it be Teatro Zinzanni or Broadway at the Paramount, or even something edgy like Café Nordo.
  3. Go Local: Get them passes for a ghost tour, orca whale watching, go kart racing, or cooking classes. A family would get much use from an annual membership to the zoo or aquarium, or from a Discover Pass.
  4. Subscriber: For gifts that keep on giving (for awhile, anyway), a subscription to something they love, such as a music streaming service, an audiobook membership, a TV streaming service, or online learning.
  5. Staycation: A fun day and evening out, followed by a night at a hotel. If there are kids in the picture, arranging for a babysitter would be extra awesome! Sky’s the limit on what to do: dinner, bowling, movies, karaoke, pub crawl, salsa dancing lessons… Staycations are THE best!
  6. Fancy Feast: Is your special person a gourmand or someone who loves fabulous restaurants but just can’t fit it into the budget right now? A gift certificate to a restaurant would be welcomed by any foodie!
  7. Members Only: A gift membership to a favorite museum would be such a thoughtful gift that also supports a local organization. The Seattle area has so many amazing museums for every interest—check out this comprehensive list.

Isn’t it great to know you’ve given someone a memorable gift that won’t end up in a shelf or a drawer?
