Clutter-free gifts: Experiences

The next-to-last category of clutter-free gifts is gifts of experiences or quality time. These can be given as an experience to be shared between giver and receiver, or they can be for the receiver to enjoy alone or with a party of their own choosing. At the end of the day, things don’t matter so much as experiences and making memories that will last forever—while not taking up any physical space!
