The Christmas gift for the minimalist

December 18th, 2012 · No Comments · Minimalism

Here’s the perfect gift for the One Who Wants Nothing. Or the One Who Needs Nothing. A endearing story called “The Gift of Nothing” by Patrick McDonnell. Though it’s allegedly a children’s book, it doesn’t matter. Any adult with “nothingness” inclinations would enjoy this as much as any child. The illustrations are enchantingly simple and the text itself is… well…. minimal. This would be perfect for that awkward situation when that special someone insists they don’t want any gifts and yet you badly want there to be a package under the tree with their name on it. It’s thin and small, so they can’t complain too much. If they prolong their objections, tell them it’s meant to be passed on to someone else after being read. But they won’t want to — because they will LOVE it too much.

Here’s a picture of it. Ignore the unattractive barcode in the upper left corner – this copy’s a library book.
