As a Minimalist, one area of trouble for the accumulation of clutter is the category of gifts. What’s a gift-loving Minimalist to do? Do you simply stop giving gifts to your friends for fear that you are burdening him or her with unnecessary clutter and stress? Do you stop accepting all gifts keeping a stoic expression no matter how shiny and wonderful the gifts may seem? Yes and no.
You should think long and hard before giving a gift to a friend. Consider the person and their tastes carefully. Don’t buy her a gift just for the sake of giving something. Choose wisely and considerately. As for accepting gifts from others, never should you hurt feelings for the sake of your beliefs. Minimalism or otherwise. Accept all gifts with a cheery demeanor and, if it suits you, donate the present at a later date to another who will enjoy it more than yourself.
We all have that one friend that’s obsessed with Joanna Gaines (or maybe you are that friend). In the spirit of giving quality gifts, today I want to inspire you by sharing 7 of the best gift ideas for your DIY-loving, Fixer Upper obsessed, BFF girlfriend. Here goes!

7 Perfect Gifts For Your Joanna Gaines Obsessed Best Friend
3D Wall Panels– Joanna is crazy for shiplap and I can see why. It adds texture to the walls, dimension, and interest while remaining relatively neutral. That speaks to my Minimalist heart loud and clear. If your friend’s home is beginning to look like the inside of a sailing vessel, you should gift her a set of these 3D wall panels from CSI Wall Panels to encourage her to add some variety into the mix. These beautiful panels come in several patterns and they are 3 dimensional. CSI wall panels gifted me a set to try in my own home in exchange for this mention on my blog and I am very impressed with the quality and ease of installation. Your Joanna Gaines obsessed BFF could install these wall panels in a weekend and be proud of her mad decorating skills!
Fresh Flowers for Her Kitchen Table– What’s the point of owning a stunning barn wood farmhouse table if you don’t adorn it with something special once in a while like fresh flowers? If fresh flowers seem like too much hassle, these silk options will last this side of forever and they’re equally as gorgeous. With a little essential oil spray no one will even know they’re not real!
A Magnolia Leaf Wreath- In true Joanna Gaines fashion, the magnolia leaf is probably your BFF’s favorite way to add a homey touch to a room. What better way to make the entry to her home more inviting than by adding a beautiful wreath made from real magnolia tree leaves? This magnolia leaf wreath is just as beautiful as an addition to the pantry door, bedroom door, or above the mantle.
A Joanna Gaines Mug- It’s safe to say that all mamas love hot tea or coffee and your Joanna Gaines obsessed best friend is going to scream when you gift her this one.
Inspirational Books- Your friend who loves Fixer Upper will devour The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines. She’ll also love spending hours flipping through the inspirational home decor ideas in a book like this one.
A Heavy Throw Blanket- A heavy, handmade, knitted Merino wool throw like this one is both functional and decorative. A throw like this looks cozy and inviting draped across her favorite chair, and is even more pleasant when the temperatures begin to plummet. An item like this would be a great Christmas gift.
This Hilarious Doormat- I mean, who wouldn’t answer for these three people??? This may be the best Joanna Gaines inspired gift so far. Your BFF will love this. It’s a great way to clearly state to anyone visiting her home that they are about to get their socks knocked off by the beautiful decor (thanks to hours of Fixer Upper marathons!).
