Nobody can resist a gift that promises to make life easier, especially if it’s wrapped in a hint of glamour. Better than a day at the spa, it’s a lifetime of organization. Here are 5 closet accessories that make great gifts.
It’s not just a shoe rack, it’s the ultimate in convenience, a pull out footwear storage system. It’s like a dresser except all the doors are ‘open-faced’ with a low, sturdy railing track to hold shoes in and can be pulled out to extend the full depth of the drawer, then pushed back in, out of the way. No more scrounging around the floor at the back of the closet, shoes are elevated to a higher, more accessible level.
Jewellery in a drawer
Using drawer storage is also an excellent way to keep your jewellery within reach. Using a top drawer that’s closer to eye level, in a well-lit closet, is an easy way for mom to get her bling on. Choose a custom, velvet-lined drawer, it’s not only a beautiful way to display your jewellery it’s also functional.
Velvet lined spacers help keep jewellery in ‘shape’ by providing a slip-resistant surface. Keeping jewellery pieces separated also helps prevent scratches on surfaces and tangling.
A little Paris flair
You can never have too many scarves, just ask a Parisienne, they’re always in style. Discover a better way to store your scarves. It can be as simple as purchasing drawer dividers to fit into a shallow drawer to neatly fold away each one. There are many solutions available to keep them wrinkle-free and fresh. By keeping them in sight and within reach there’s no excuse to leave the house without a little French style all year long.
Maximizing space and minimizing effort
To maximize closet space, look up. If you use double height rods to hang shirts, pants, etc. you create double the storage space. You’ve probably thought about it but decided against it because it would make it too difficult to reach clothes on the upper rack. But what if that rack simply pulls out and down to your level with a simple movement? Genius, effortless, the closet does the hard work for you.
Ironing board in a drawer
Yes, an ironing board can be a perfect gift. Not the clumsy, squeaky, awkwardly shaped, leggy ironing board you have to drag out of a dark closet, then bend over to unfold, adjust and bend over again to fold up and drag back to the closet. This one is in a drawer and the system is beautifully designed to function by simply sliding out when needed and tucks away when you’re done.
