In this episode of The Minimalists Podcast, Joshua and Ryan talk about gift-getting, gift-giving, and birthday celebrations for adults and kids alike with podcaster and Registered Dietitian Rebecca Shern, and they answer the following questions:

  • What does Joshua want for his birthday?
  • Why do we never seem to know what we truly want?
  • Instead of spending lots of money and giving expensive gifts, what are some meaningful ways to celebrate birthdays?
  • How do you celebrate your child’s birthday?
  • What if gift-giving is one of my love languages?
  • How do you celebrate your birthday?
  • Is gift-giving just a matter of simply asking others what they want?
  • How do we appropriately address a loved one who insists on giving us gifts when we’ve asked them countless times not to, and do we tell them that we’ve actually given away most of the gifts they’ve given us?
  • How do my spouse and I address the societal expectations of others regarding our choice of participation in traditional gift-giving events, such as birthdays and Christmas?
