  • Hi guys. I have been watching you guys for a while. You have inspired me to become more of a minimalist. I am wondering what are some small ways you save money

    MatthewMatthewIl y a an
  • Hey! I really enjoy watching your videos. I heard the dyslexia shout out in this video. Honestly, I have been wondering if Eamon could possibly be dyslexic since I began watching your videos. I am dyslexic and have been studying the brain difference for about a year and a half now. You should check out the book The Dyslexic Advantage. I think you would find it very interesting and potentially relatable. I found it a really interesting and an enjoyable read.

  • Great guide. It was cool that you had the intangible list because a lot of the time minimalists/vanlifers already have what they "need". Also, didn't know Eamon was dyslexic, I think it makes you cooler, (but I'm bias...) Take care guys and hope you have a really great holiday everyone!

  • Great ideas! Ebooks are good. Museum membership. Offer to babysit, if they have kids, so the parents can have a night out. Babysitter’s are expensive! Restaurant gift card. Art supplies are always good for artists. Coffee shop gift cards. Chi gifts ♥️! We celebrate Winter Solstice tomorrow. Wishing you a blessed holiday.

  • I once gave a Petro Canada card to my girlfriend for Xmas. My line of thought was the following : for sure it will be useful so of course it makes a amazing gift. Turns out I was wrong! I was told it was the most boring gift ever! lol

  • You guys are so awesome! One other thing is a class at a Makerspace! You want to learn a new skill, soldering, woodworking, need to learn how to 3D print or laser cut onto a piece of wood or a book. You could make your own gifts as well. People are generally very cool and excepting even if you don’t know what you’re doing. Merry Christmas you guys and to your families!

  • I'm not a vandweller (yet) but I'm a minimalist and these are GREAT ideas. Particularly love the idea of gifting someone a course/classes in some subject - Best idea ever IMO. Also, it's so cute when you guys call each other "buddy" that I giggle a bit each time.

    Nannycam eomaNannycam eomaIl y a an

  • Bamboo toothbrush, reusable travel straw and/or cutlery in glass, metal or bamboo. It's a bit pricy upfront but metal saftey razor where you only toss the metal blade will save you lots of money in the long run, look super classy and reduce plastic waste. I love all the consumable items like coffeee, tea, snacks and beauty products, as long as it's definitely something they will use anyways.

    Karen FairholmKaren FairholmIl y a an
  • Can I dovetail on Eamon's suggestion for tools? How about, for anyone who lives in a city that has this, get them a year's membership to a tool library!! In Toronto, I think we have 3 now! I think other cities in Canada that have them are: Halifax, Ottawa, Calgary and Vancouver. Probably more, but that's all I'm aware of. In the US, I think Baltimore and Seattle? Again, I'm sure there's more than that.

  • My best tip.... II’m big on theatre and subscribe to 8 in the SF Bay Area) is that right before Christmas (Check their website) check sell discounted tickets ALL OVER to all sorts of events, plays, sports, etc....and before Xmas they have a day or two where they sell gift certificates at 20% off....20% off of already super low prices!!! I buy some every year and use them myself!

  • Hi Eamon and Bec, my name is Judy, I live in Florida, wanted to say you guys are amazing and so inspirational. I was hoping for a favor,since this video is about great gift ideas, my fiancé is a huge fan of yours, she absolutely loves you guys. She watches every video on FRworld and listens to every podcast, she has your ebook you guys have inspired her to go vegan. I can’t say how much she adores you. She even buys your chi wala chai tea bc she absolutely loves it. I was wondering if you guys are able too, to give her a shout out in your next video, she would be so happy for her two favorite people to say her name lol. Her name is Magan Martinez. I would be so grateful if you can do me this favor, it would be the best Christmas gift, especially bc she has done so much for me I truly love her and I I know she would be so thrilled if you could do that. Thank you so much I love you guys, keep doing what you guys do it’s amazing and inspiring and chi wala on !!

  • Hey guys! I believe in today's busy world THE BEST gift either to give or to receive is a baked good made by you or the person giving! Like zucchini muffins or chocolate cookies or pumpernickel bread. The fact that someone took the time to make you something. (Reminds us of things past)...and à la vegan! Say What?! Even Better!! Joyeux Noël and keep up the Vreat Work!

    Sylvie MayerSylvie MayerIl y a an
  • Great gift ideas! Also for minimalists, if your loved one is really into a certain causes or charity, you can donate in their name or go to that charity's gift shop and purchase them something, so the proceeds go to their fave charity. This is a tradition with my sister and I, every year I get her a calendar (and other stuff) from a charity that could really use the extra ching...this year it is from The Gentle Barn, they are a small animal sanctuary that provides prosthetics to mostly farm animals that have lost a limb, etc. many rescued from slaughter houses, etc. The cool thing about the calendar too is that every month you get to read the story of that month's animal.

  • Great ideas for just about anyone, really! As an artist I LOVE the idea of Deconstruction Art; the camera looked amazing! I may have to try a few pieces and see if I can find or create a market 😆. I’m moving back to the Florida Keys soon where fishing is king so I’m thinking old fishing reels, poles and tackle would be awesome & welcomed....also thinking small-ish kitchen appliances (hint, hint Eamon). Small blenders, coffee and tea things, the old electric juicers, fruit and vegetable peelers, you get the idea. Anyway, loved the video & actually got a couple of last minute gift idea from it; thanks! Happy Holidays to both of you & your families🎄☃️🎄! PS: old clocks, watches, kitchen

  • When's this deconstructed art "how to" video coming then mate. I know it sounds (is) easy but we'd love to see a shop to sale vid with you buying, deconstructing, arranging?, sticking, possibly selling? Also, deconstruct something tea or chai based and use it on your stand for talking point and cross well. Love it and will most definitely be giving it a go. I'd also like to make a nice tea chest with a selection of teas for my sons teachers next year. Merry Christmas to you both and the family x
