Here at The Organized Mama, I am very big on not collecting a lot of “stuff”. And with the holiday season quickly approaching, I am all about giving gifts that are more meaningful! I have been teaching the kiddos to live within their means (living minimally).

So this holiday season, I am planning gifts that aren’t stuff, but rather experiences and hand-made items. Which is why I created the ultimate minimalists’ gift guide! I have broken down the guide into some of my favorite products/experiences that would truly be meaningful to anyone at any age! Kid’s gift guide is coming next week!

MaMeals is a food delivery service the sends moms fully cooked meal. Like you would never have to think about what you are going to eat for lunch again! It is the perfect gift for the new mom or busy mom-on-the-go!

Adult Night Out

Gifting an adult night out is probably one of my favorite gifts because having someone else set up a babysitter is incredible! Grab a card and set up an adult night out for a fantastic gift!

Gift Cards And Wine

You can never go wrong with gift cards and wine!


Happiness Project

I found The Happiness Project from a dear friend after my daughter was born, which is this time of year. I mentioned it to my husband who then gifted it to me. I have been writing in this journal ever since. It is such an inspiration to see what happened the past few years.
