These 30+ organizational gifts are perfect for anyone who loves to be neat and tidy! Get tons of gift ideas for your favorite organization enthusiast!
Organizers can be some of the most challenging people to buy for. They literally thrive off of a lack of "stuff," so the last thing we want to do gift them some extra clutter!
In my years and years of organizing, though, I have found a select group of tools and resources that are extremely helpful to me as someone who would consider herself "organizing obsessed." I wanted to pass them along to make it easier to shop for the organization enthusiast in your life!
(Or if YOU are the organization enthusiast in your life, simply send the link to this post to your loved ones as a little not-so-subtle hint! 😉 )

I divided up my gift recommendations by category to make them easier to navigate! To hop to the category you're most interested in, click any of the links below:
Printables and Books
I may be a little biased, but one of the things that most helps me stay organized is pretty printables! I use printables daily and love to help others become more organized with printables too.
Our printable binders would be a great gift for the organizer on your list, particularly when paired with a cute bin full of other supplies to help them organize to their little heart's content!
Along with my favorite printable binders, I also have some favorite books that have made a big impact on me when it comes to organization and productivity! (Simply click on any of the images below to get more info or shop my recommendations.)
- Simply Clean by Becky Rapinchuk of Clean Mama- Becky is the queen of clean and the absolute first person I go to anytime I need to know how to clean anything! Her book is full of practical advice and makes keeping a tidy home manageable, rather than feeling overwhelming.
- The Complete Book of Home Organization by Toni Hammersley of A Bowl Full of Lemons- Toni is one of my organizing heroes, and her book is filled with all sorts of helpful nuggets for organizing any area of your house!
- The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo- This book completely changed the way I look at decluttering and has helped me maintain a tidier, less cluttered home! I don't strictly adhere to every one of its suggestions, but her basic premises are so helpful.
- The Home Edit by Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin of The Home Edit- Clea and Joanna are probably the most well known organizers on the planet these days. Every space they touch ends up looking amazing! Not only do they have amazing organizing strategies, but they're hilarious as well!
- Atomic Habits by James Clear- This book almost had me in [happy, relieved] tears in the first few chapters because it made me realize that I wasn't stuck in old habits and thought processes! It was so freeing! James lays out several practical ways to form new, healthier habits that make so much sense and are simple to execute.
- Martha Stewart's Organizing by Martha Stewart- (Preorder) Martha's home and organizing tips are always well done, so I look forward to her new book that is completely dedicated to organizing, coming out in January!
I could have listed a million types of bins, baskets, bags, containers, and other accessories in this section, but I tried to keep it to my very favorites!
- Purse Organizer- Sometimes I find a gorgeous purse that I LOVE, but it doesn't have adequate sections or pockets to organize the items I like to have with me. This smart little insert fits neatly inside, solving this problem and making switching purses a breeze.
- Poppin Small Zip Folios- These small pouches are also great for organizing items inside a purse or larger bag, and they're cute too!
- Collection of Soft Cover Notebooks- There is just something about writing things down that makes them easier remember and follow through on. These little notebooks would be perfect for that!
- Y-Weave Bins- I have these bins in all shapes and sizes all over my house to help maintain organization. They're in our pantry, playroom, garage, bathrooms, and more! They come in tons of colors, too, so it's easy to find some that match your room!
- Wet Bags- I like to keep these in our pool bag, in the car, and even in my purse to make sure that any wet items can be neatly stored. They keep our wet stuff from dampening any other items on their way home.
- Woven Baskets- Woven baskets are awesome for looking gorgeous, adding texture, and hiding items out of sight! Love that they're practical and beautiful at the same time!
- OXO Containers- These containers are a bit of a splurge, which is why they make a great gift, but in my opinion they are worth every penny! They are easy to open, even with one hand, which is helpful when you're working in the kitchen. They're also airtight, so they keep food or other items fresh.
- Cord Organizer Case- I absolutely hate dealing with a tangled mess of cords, and this cute case makes sure I never have to! Whether I'm using it while I travel or just to hold certain cords at my house, it makes everything easy to find.
- Packing Cubes- I never travel anywhere without my packing cubes anymore! They make it so easy to separate clothes by category, and unpacking at my destination is a breeze. I simply unzip the cube and pop it into a drawer, and all of my items are easily accessible. Then when I'm ready to go home, I can just zip it up again and throw it in my suitcase. I also love these for my kids because it helps keep their items tidier when we're traveling.
- Travel Toiletry Bag- I have had this bag for probably 15-20 years and it is still going strong! (Mine has my maiden name initials on it and I've been married for nearly 13 years, so that shows you how long I've had it!) I take it on every single trip I go on. It is so helpful for keeping all of my travel toiletry items neat and tidy.
Finally, there are a few gadgets that I've deemed "must haves" for organizing my home and life! I'm pretty picky because I don't wan't to clutter up our house with unnecessary items. But all of these are things I own and use often in our day-to-day life.
- Scotch Thermal Laminator- I mentioned above that I use printables pretty much daily. With a laminator, I am able to not only make sure some of them stay nice and sturdy, but it also allows me to write on them with a dry erase marker so I can use the same printable page over and over again. The laminator also comes in handy for labels, making them stronger so they can stay looking nice, even in high traffic areas.
- Kindle Paperwhite- I am typically not a fan of having two gadgets that do the same thing. So since I could read books digitally on my phone, I never thought I needed a Kindle. I ended up having this one gifted to me, and I have LOVED it. The reading experience on it is much nicer than on my phone, and I use it all the time. Plus, now that I'm reading more digital books, I'm saving storage space in my house because I don't have to hold onto the large physical books any longer.
- Portable Charger- My phone keeps me organized, so when it runs out of battery, I am in big trouble! I keep this portable charger in my purse so I never have to worry about my phone going dead when I need it.
- Shark Vacuum- I know a vacuum might not seem like the most exciting gift, but I had to include this on here because it is the best little inexpensive vacuum I've ever owned! It's lightweight and easy to maneuver and does a great job on our floors. I've recommended it to family members and several friends and they all love it too.
- Clothes Steamer- Donnie gave me a steamer for Christmas a few years ago (You know you're an adult when... 😉 ), and it has been amazing. I love it for my clothes, but it is also great for getting wrinkles out of things around the house like curtains and our slipcovered couches and chairs.
- FitBit- This is a bit of a stretch as an "organization" tool, but I put it on the list because it has been absolutely essential in helping me reach my health and fitness goals and keeping that area of my life organized. I have lost about 10 pounds since I started using it consistently. I love that it keeps me accountable and on track.
- Wake Up Light Alarm Clock- This alarm clock was a total game changer for me. I am not a morning person at all, but this clock is a huge help! It has a ring of light around the face that turns on dimly 15 minutes before you want to wake up and slowly gets brighter and brighter, mimicking the light of the sun. That coupled with the soothing sounds the alarm makes (the sound of waves is my personal favorite), makes it so much easier to get out of bed in the morning.
- Silhouette Cameo Cutting Machine- I use my Cameo + adhesive vinyl to make most of the labels throughout our house. I simply design them in the Silhouette software on my computer, then send it to the machine (similar to how you send data to a printer), and the machine cuts my exact design. I then transfer the vinyl over to whichever container I'm using, and I have a label that is both pretty and practical!
- Fujitsu ScanSnap- We are big fans of keeping all of our files and important documents digitally so they're easy to pull up whenever we need them while minimizing paper clutter. Our ScanSnap helps us scan in a bunch of paperwork in a very short period of time. (You can read more about our paperless strategy in this post.)
- DYMO MobileLabeler- When I want a simpler label than the ones I create with my Silhouette machine, I pull out this handy dandy gadget. It connects to my phone and has a ton of labeling options. It even prints in cursive, which I LOVE!
So those are my favorite organizational gifts for anyone in your life who may be obsessed with organizing! Each and every one of these things has helped me stay organized, be more productive, and keep our home neat and tidy. I hope they will be helpful for you (or your loved one) as well. 🙂
