2022 Holiday Gift Guide

You’ve made your list.

And checked it twice.

But before you bust out the wrapping paper . . .

let’s think a bit more about what’s going under the tree.

You might suspect that we professional organizers have a slightly different take on gift giving.


Because our busiest season starts in January.

That’s when people feel most overwhelmed from clutter!

If you’ve been following us on Facebook and Instagram, you might already know how stressful clutter can be. We tell lots of (anonymous) real-life stories of Colorado Springs spaces that have broken free from their cluttered ways.

No Grinches here.

Just a few merry-making tips to help your list feel all the love this year.

Before you hit the last-minute sales to put under your own tree . . .

Ask yourself:

  1. Do I have space for this new treasure?
  2. Do I already have something similar?
  3. Will I use this item enough to justify the cost and space?

For those on Santa’s Nice List, consider gifts that won’t add extra clutter for your loved ones.

We have some ideas.

Gift Ideas for All Kids

We love organizing kids rooms and play spaces.

Gift Ideas that Give Comfort

We all have that one person who has all the coolest gadgets and is spectacularly hard to buy for. Chances are, they could use a little time away to relax and unwind.

And honestly, wouldn’t we all love to receive some down time too?

  • Spa gift certificates.
    Who doesn’t need some time to themselves to unwind after all the hustle and bustle of the holidays? Just make sure they don’t expire too soon.

  • Weekend getaway.
    You could research AirBnBs or local hotels. Find somewhere wonderful where they can escape the daily grind and recharge for just a few days. Bonus tip: if you are able, maybe offer to watch kids or pets during this time. Many people don’t get away because it feels too hard to arrange.

  • Wine or Beer club membership.
    Make sure your recipient is a wine lover first so bottles don’t pile up.
