A rule of thumb for gifting to a minimalist dads is to offer experiences or help them save time. Father’s Day is coming up and I explored several ideas.
Minimalist Father’s Day Gift Ideas:
- Race track car racing experience
- Escape room
- Fancy meal in town (Depending on the age of your kids)
- Breakfast in bed
- Camping / Fishing (if he is an outdoorsy guy)
- A cooking class (if he likes cooking)
- A combination of experiences: Breakfast in bed, massage, and escape room experience with the family
Depending on what your dad or your husband likes and the age of your family, you can find various experiences that he will enjoy without giving him more items to clutter up his space.
What am I getting for Dad this year?
Since my kids are still toddlers, I am in charge of getting the gift for father’s day for my husband. My husband is a technophile. and he always wanted to try a Nintendo Switch. He wants to try it out, but not actually spend a lot of time playing video games or forking out several hundreds for the game console and accessories. As a minimalist household, we don’t want to purchase more electronics that we don’t “need.” I recently discovered that I can rent a Nintendo Switch from a company called Joymode, they are currently serving the Los Angeles area in California and looking to expand to other areas.
What is Joymode? Joymode’s mission is to help you do more (and have more fun!) while owning less. Their moto is “Do More. Own Less.” They have various items you can rent, such as game games, VR sets, E-scooters, backyard movie sets, and more.
I rented the Nintendo Switch bundle and here’s what I am getting; Nintendo Switch, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, 1-2 Switch, Snipperclips, Just Dance, Fast RMX, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, and an extra Joy-Con set.
Drop off: Thursday 1-4pm
Pick up: Tuesday 1-4 pm
It’s an amazing deal for $45 for 4 days! That costs about $11 per day of play and you get to try 7 games. I think my husband will be super excited about this, he doesn’t know about this yet.
