It’s the holiday season and you’re probably looking for some helpful gift ideas for that hard-to-shop-for person on your gift list.

Choosing something that helps the people in your life stay a little more organized makes for a gift that’s both practical and thoughtful.

We’ve put together a list of some helpful gift ideas for the home that can be used for gift-giving budgets both large and small.

Ranging from full room makeovers to some handy gadgets and devices, all of these gift ideas for the home will enable anyone to keep their house or condo tidier.

Label maker

gift ideas for the home, label makerWhether it’s used in somebody’s home or office, a label maker simplifies the process of creating easy-to-read labels for just about anything. 

Any user will have plenty of printing sizes, fonts, symbols, and character colours to work with in order to produce labels that have a consistent, professional look.

The handy devices come in handheld and desktop models and while they may be small, they offer a lot of versatility. Use them for:

  • all-purpose labelling 
  • crafting and gift-giving
  • making iron-on labels for clothing

Device charging station

We use so many electronic devices nowadays, which means we also have lots of device chargers scattered throughout the home.

Give someone you know a multi device charging station to make it easier to keep their family’s smartphones, tablets, and chargers a bit more organized.

A charging station naturally won’t be used every time someone in the house needs to recharge their device. However, adding a device power station to the kitchen, front hallway, or living room provides a convenient, central spot that can cut down on clutter and time that’s wasted looking for the proper charger.

Charging stations come in a few different designs. There’s the plug-in type, the dock type, and the pad type, where you just place your devices on the pad to charge them.

Closet makeover

Are you buying for someone who regularly complains about the disorderly state of their bedroom closet?

You can help them reclaim the hours of lost time they waste every year dealing with a messy closet by treating them to a closet makeover.

An effective closet organizer creates a place for everything and is the best solution for maximizing the storage space in a closet.

With a custom closet makeover, your gift recipient’s storage needs and design tastes can all be accommodated in order to create a functional wardrobe storage space they’ll love.

Purse organizer

Any woman in your life will appreciate the usefulness of a purse organizer. These liner inserts are set within a purse and are loaded with pockets and compartments that will keep any purse well-organized.

These organizers can also be conveniently removed to easily transfer the contents from one purse to another. Purse organizers are very affordable as well, ranging in price from $5 up to around $40.

Make sure you choose a purse organizer that’s not made from heavy material, so as not to weigh down anyone’s purse too much.

High speed mobile scanner

If someone you’re buying for has been slow to adapt to modern times and still gets their bills via snail mail, give them a scanner to digitize bills, receipts, and other important documents that need to be kept.

Go for a mobile, high speed scanner model to make scanning anything in the home as easy as possible. A mobile scanner can also be used to digitize a photo collection (and provide a digital backup of anyone’s valuable family pictures).

Some scanner models will only scan documents and some will only scan photos, so look for a multi-purpose scanner that can handle both tasks.

Craft room

Giving someone the gift of a dedicated space that allows them to enjoy a hobby they love will be a special gesture that isn’t soon forgotten.

Organized Interiors’ craft room designs make space for anyone’s creativity, whether their passion is for:

  • crafting
  • drawing
  • sewing
  • music
  • scrapbooking
  • pottery
  • painting

Bluetooth tracker

Next to TV remotes and smartphones, house and car keys are a home’s most misplaced items, according to a survey done by an iPhone location app company.

The survey found that at least once a week, 28% of the respondents misplaced their car or house keys.

If this is a regular problem for someone you’re buying for this holiday season, help them out with a Bluetooth tracker that can be attached to items such as:

  • key rings
  • wallets
  • purses
  • smartphones
  • luggage

The small tracking tile is synced to a smartphone app that helps you pinpoint the location of your lost item. Tile is a reputable manufacturer of Bluetooth trackers and they carry a variety of tracker types that make great stocking stuffers.

Coffee pod spinner

gift ideas for the home, coffee pod spinnerWhat’s more convenient than single-serving coffee pods? As pod coffee makers continue to become more commonplace in homes, more and more delicious flavours and brews become available.

Sure, you could keep your kitchen counter tidy by keeping all of those pods in a decorative basket or jar, but that doesn’t always make your favourite coffee flavour the easiest to find.

Gift someone with a coffee pod spinner, which makes it easier to find and organize coffee pods. Prices typically range from around $12 to $60.

Entertainment unit

Could someone you’re buying for this holiday season use an upgrade to the room where they watch their movies and TV shows?

Maybe the storage space for their TV and audio/video devices just lacks style or maybe their entertainment room looks untidy.

A cluttered home entertainment space these days isn’t uncommon. After all, consider the large number of electronics we use now, such as PVRs, streaming boxes, video game consoles, surround sound systems, etcetera.

That creates a setup with a lot of wires, remotes, and additional peripherals that can create a cluttered look in a room.

Consider giving an entertainment unit to someone as a gift this year to create a stylish, all-in-one storage space for a room’s electronic devices and accessories.
