You might think that as a Professional Organizer, I hate gifting and the accumulation of things. This could not be further from the truth. I LOVE gifting. In fact, it is one of my love languages. I show affection to family and friends through giving, and it is important to me to find useful and relevant gifts for those I care about.
Almost everyone has seen The Home Edit‘s new show on Netflix, and the organizing bug is spreading like wildfire. If you and your family members have fallen under this spell, it would be fun to give the gift of organization this year!
Here are my ideas for an organization centered gift:
1. Gift a few hours with a Pro!
I used to think it was a little taboo to gift time with a Professional Organizer. You may be thinking the same thing. Is this similar to giving someone a weight-loss tool?! Actually, it’s not remotely taboo; it’s a blessing. My services are often gifted to others, and their response is always ecstatic. Imagine giving the gift of finishing a to-do list! We all have areas in our homes or businesses that need a little more attention, and what better way to show you care than having someone complete the work for them. I promise, we are able help everyone! The best part is that the gift recipient can select which areas they would like assistance with. This gives them the power to prioritize, making professional organizing a personal and meaningful gift.

2. Give my favorite label maker!
My favorite organization tool is the P-Touch CUBE Plus label maker. It’s wireless, customizable, and connects to your phone. Plus you can order it online without going into a single store! #score. If you have someone on your list even remotely into organizing, this is the gift for them. *Disclaimer: next time you visit their home, be prepared to see E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G labeled. LOL!
3. Organize a cabinet with The Spicy Shelf
I promise, this thing is incredible. The best part about The Spicy Shelf is that you can use it everywhere. I have used them in bathrooms, kitchens, pantries, and medicine cabinets. The options are truly endless. I’ve even seen one used for a toy display! The Spicy Shelf is easy to put together, incredibly sturdy to use, and the price point is perfect!
4. Cherish Memories with a Personalized Keepsake Box
This is great for the busy parent of school-age children. We make them custom to your preferences. You can select the font, color, and names to add to the box. It’s the perfect way to contain the special pieces made by their children. It also allows a guide to how much to keep. #organized
5. Give back while gifting a 4 Things Tote
I’m obsessed with these for a few reasons! If you know me, you know I LOVE the Bobby Bones Show. These bags are from a show member, Amy, who also happens to be an Aggie (whoop!). The bags are customizable (my favorite thing), and also benefit an orphanage in Haiti. They make the perfect gift, but are also multipurpose (an organizer’s favorite thing).
This year has been quite a wild ride and I hope that you are doing well. From myself and the whole team at Simplify with Steph, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
