Anti-Clutter Gift Guide

It doesn't matter if you're a minimalist or a maximalist - it can be overwhelming to recieve more stuff that you have to move, clean, and find a place for. When a gift adds to one's clutter, it doesn't feel as sweet as consumable gift.

As a follower of the KonMari method, I don't want to add to someone's clutter but I also want to give a great gift. Below is an anti-clutter gift guide to help act as a guide when choosing presents. Greeting cards, books, and craft supplies are not included as those are personal based on the receiver or giver on whether they are useful.

I debated adding clothing rental or clothing subscriptions as they're consumable, can wear a fancy dress and then return it. But I was afraid that would give the impression someone needs to improve their wardrobe. What are your thoughts?
