If you’re trying to deal with your holiday shopping list and need a few gift ideas for minimalist living, you’ve come to the right place. Marcella is all about supplying you with the perfect non-clutter gifts because who wants a gift they’ll never use again? In the 21st century, with everything at your fingertips, it’s hard to know just where or what is a practical gift for minimalists. Marcella bypasses this holiday gift-giving anxiety by designing the best gifts for minimalists: clothes and accessories designed to wear season after season.
Practical Gifts for Minimalists: Accessories
A minimalist accessory is the easiest option for picking gifts for minimalist women, such as the Bronx Scarf. An extra-long chunky scarf knit from an ultra-soft merino wool mix, it’s both practical and fashionable due to its extra-long length—which is nearly 100 (!) inches, offering plenty of options for fashionable statements. It also comes in a variety of colors, meaning you can always find a color perfect for your loved one.
Speaking of versatility, the best non-clutter gift is a gift that helps to eliminate clutter in the first place, like the Kelly Tote. This oversized triangle tote bag is made of soft Italian leather with a wide opening and a magnetic closure, plus enough space inside to fit a 13-inch laptop and more. This versatility makes it the perfect minimalist gift idea for anyone regardless of their age, from a college student to someone running their own business. The sleek and oversized look of the Kelly compliments everyone and works seamlessly with any style.
And, of course, who could say no to a Lux Knit Beanie? A vegan yarn beanie that is delightfully soft, this is the essential gift for minimalists of any type, but especially those living in colder climes. Working as a stocking stuffer, this itch-free vegan yarn is perfect for when the weather starts dipping low.
What Tops To Buy a Minimalist?
For everyday layering, a classic top like the Cara Top is an easy holiday present and a practical gift for minimalists. A classic long-sleeved turtleneck top, it reimagines a classic silhouette with the lightness of European jersey, with a touch of sheerness at the neckline and sleeves for a fun addition to add complexity to your outfit. The high-stretch fabric means it fits the shape of your body, meaning it is a great base layer for any outfit—and easy to gift!
Of course, if you’re looking for a luxurious minimalist gift idea for her, you can’t go wrong with the Pia Turtleneck Sweater. This waffle knit sweater features a timeless relaxed fit in a French merino wool blend yarn and is another great layering choice, making it a perfect holiday gift for anybody in your life. And if you want to go with that oversized and slouchy look, you can always size up.
Speaking of oversized, the classic look of a minimalist top like the Raphaela Boyfriend Shirt is another timeless-yet-modern essential and the perfect sophisticated non-clutter gift idea, . An oversized button-down top, it features a sharp collar and a button-up front, which is balanced by a feminine floaty shape and dolman sleeves, plus the soft lightweight cotton fabric means it works either as a base layer or as a more formal top in warmer weather.
What Gifts of Leather Does Marcella Have?
For the holiday season, nothing will help your gift stand out above the rest more than if it is made of supple Italian (or quality vegan) leather, such as the Karma Boots. Italian leather boots are a practical gift for minimalists, as they can be styled in many ways and worn year after year, and the right design details can make them truly showstopping. Karma features a unique ribbed detail, an oversized double zip pull, and a sneaker-inspired cap-toe for an elevated athleisure style with a modern edge. A stylish alternative to any classic pair of sneakers, this minimalist gift idea can be worn day and night in any season.
If you’re looking for a practical gift for minimalists that’s still beautiful and a touch luxurious, get them the Tulla Heeled Sandals. These stable block heels are inspired by the Karma Boots with the same iconic ribbing made party-ready, the perfect present for any sophisticated woman with a bit of a social calendar. Tulla stands out with an open square-toed silhouette, plus a padded footbed for comfort and practicality.
Minimalist gift ideas should be sleek and versatile, like the Kaya Leggings, crafted with vegan stretch leather. These luxury leggings feature a matte finish, a high waist, and clean seams, making them elevated loungewear that’s also prime for dressing up.
