a pro organizer's holiday gift guide
Updated: Dec 10, 2020
The holiday season is upon us and gift buying has begun for many. If you are planning on doing some organizing yourself before the holidays or if you have someone on your gift list who simply loves organizing, below are Neat Little Nest's top holiday gift recommendations to help keep your (or someone you know) home looking beautiful and decluttered. We are all about starting the new year off with our "nests" as organized as possible.
#1. clear refrigerator bins
Keeping a refrigerator tidy can be a never ending job, but with the right storage tools to corral broad categories together, it can solve that issue. This is a great investment as you head into the holidays with a busier than usual fridge. Here you can shop our favorites.
#2. fabric bins + natural baskets
We love mixing and matching bins when organizing and baskets and bins are a perfect way to do that. They come in so many sizes, fabrics and shapes, it is fun to shop around to find ones that fit your needs. Giving a gift in a really nice reusable bin or basket is a wonderful touch. Here you can shop our favorites.
#3 clear food storage containers
Decanting your food into clear food storage containers can help you quickly see what you have and with so many options available, you can select containers that you love and that coordinate with your decor. Gifting something homemade in one or several of these beautiful jars is something we do each year. Here you can shop our favorites.
#4 kid's memory bins
Giving yourself (or a cherished family member or friend) the gift of getting their children's art and school papers organized is on the wish list of many. By purchasing Neat Little Nest DIY memory kit labels, a bin and hanging files and our all about me printables it is a gift with all the bells and whistles.
#5 drawer dividers
Drawer dividers are a simple way to divide up a drawer and keep like contents with like contents as shown in this coffee + tea drawer below. Drawer dividers are available in clear, metal and natural bamboo as shown below. Here you can shop our favorites.
#6 drawer organizers
Drawer organizers are small boxes to help you divide up and organize a drawer into even smaller sections than drawer dividers can. They come in all sorts of different materials like bamboo, metal and plastic that can fit your individual budget and design needs. Here you can shop our favorites.
#7 photo storage boxes
When it comes to storing photos, there are many options to choose from. We prefer storing physical pictures in photo boxes rather than in books because they simply hold more photos. You can divide them up with a simple paper divider or opt for plastic ones like shown below. Photo boxes can be decorative and functional and are great gifts for the photographers (aren't we all these days) in your life. Here are our favorites.
#8 under the sink organizers
If you have a mess under your sink, giving yourself a gift of an update is something you will benefit from all year long. You can shop our favorites.
#9 new hangers
There is something fresh and calming about having matching hangers in your closet. If you have never invested in them, what are you waiting for? Here you can shop our favorites.
#10 a fit-your-lifestyle planner
One of the best ways to get organized is to declutter your day and make the most of your time. Finding a planner that works for you is one of the ways to do that. The Neat Little Planner is a DIY printable planner that you can use in a variety of ways. To learn more about the planner, check out this recent post. To buy one for yourself or a friend, check out our signature shop.
Well, that's it for this year's edition of the pro organizer's gift guide. Happy decluttering + organizing as we head into the upcoming season with the anticipation and excitement that the holidays and a new year ahead hold.
