5 Reasons Why Food is the Best Minimalist Christmas Gift

Posted by Nikkolette's Macarons on 2nd Dec 2021

Whether you’re a minimalist or someone you love is, it can be hard to give minimalist Christmas gifts. In the interest of keeping things simple, minimalists usually don’t want gifts that will fill up their homes with unnecessary items. While it’s a great lifestyle, it can be challenging to shop for. Don’t worry, we have the perfect gift solution: French Macarons.

Wait! Before you mentally check out of this blog – we don’t ONLY mean macarons. All sorts of treats can be wonderful gifts. Here’s a list of reasons why we think food is the best minimalist Christmas gift:

It’s Perishable

You wouldn’t think anyone would want a gift that disappears, but it’s perfect for minimalists. Perishable items like food provide a moment of joy in their lives with a natural end, so they don’t have to stick around the house.

It’s an Experience

Good food taps into three of the five senses (touch, taste, and smell) all at once, and pretty food like macarons are great to look at too. When you eat it, it takes you to a different place. Your favorite food can comfort you, a new flavor may excite you, the taste or smell can remind you of a fond memory – it’s the gift of experience.

It’s a Luxury

Minimalists are splendid at keeping their belongings simple and practical. Because of this, they are excellent at choosing which luxuries they want to invest in. Buying a lavish dessert gives them an opportunity to have a luxury they don’t usually get to enjoy.

The Gift that Keeps Giving

If you have a bigger budget, subscription treat boxes (like our Macaron of the Month Club) are a great opportunity to give the gift that keeps on giving without filling up their house. This way, they can experience a little luxury every month and think of you whenever they do.

Long Distance Benefits

If you give the gift of macarons, we have nationwide shipping, so you can send a special gift box to them if you can’t be there in person. It’s just as easy as sending something from Amazon, and they’ll never expect it!

Keep Allergies and Food Preferences in Mind

Make sure you know your friends and families’ allergies before giving the gift of food. Luckily, there are more and more food options every year that are allergy-friendly. For instance, if your loved one only eats all-natural and gluten-free foods, our macarons are a perfect choice.

If you’re as excited about the gift of food as we are, get ahead on your Christmas shopping with our online ordering. We ship nationwide and are available for in-store pick up at our Plymouth location, so you can choose the option that works best for you.

From everyone at Nikkolette’s Macarons, stay safe, stay present, and have a very Merry Christmas!
