PLANNERS AS GIFTS FOR THE ORGANIZER
The organizer always has a plan and that plan is usually in a planner!
For this reason, a planner is an excellent gift for the organizer, particularly if they are still on the hunt for their holy grail of planners.
Planners can range from simple dotted notebooks to use when bullet journaling to more sophisticated planners which include goal setting sheets, quotes, you name it!
Recommended planner for value shoppers
This is the bullet journal notebook used by the founder of bullet journals himself, Ryder Carroll. With 249 numbered pages of bleed-proof (this is super important!), dotted paper, there's plenty of room for your organizer to plan to their heart's content.
Pluses include a table of contents, an expandable inner pocket, and a page marker.

Recommended mid-price planner
Want to add some happiness to your organizer's life? Then you can't go past the Happiness Planner.
The primary aim of the Happiness Planner is to make your reflect on those things that bring you joy and happiness and then intentionally build your life around those.
The Happiness Planner includes everything you'd expect, and then some - with weekly quotes, weekly goal setting, weekly reflections, and, my fave - the Happiness Roadmap.
What's more, if your organizer loves bullet journaling but wants to get back to a planner, or conversely- wants to try some aspects of bullet journaling while still having the security of a planner - they'll appreciate the dot grid pages.
Recommended planner to splurge on
I don't think there can be a better planner than this.
Its customizable in several ways: for example, you can choose from a huge variety of covers, personalize it with your name, select from different coil colors and choose from different weekly layouts: vertical, horizontal & hourly.
The latter is key if your organizer works outside the home, because in that case, hourly layouts are essentially a waste of time - so much of the day can't be filled out (I found this out from personal experience when I splurged on another similarly priced planner). However the vertical layout in particular allows you to time block the sections of the day that are your own.
Check out these three planners below.
Stationery gifts for organizers
Next to planners, most organizers rate stationery as one of life's great pleasures.
These items are often perfect for stocking stuffers, or to put in a basket, or to give daily in a lead up to Christmas, birthdays or anniversaries.
The following are my top picks.
Post its are incredibly useful - whether you want to summarize key points from that book you've been reading, scrawl reminders to yourself, or have a to-do list that you can stick wherever you want.
Blank thank you cards are perfect gifts for organizers - enabling them to quickly and easily show their appreciation when the urge strikes.
Stickers for planners are also a cute and functional gift.
Pens are also great stationery gifts - beautifully colored pens to enable the organizer to draw up color coded lists, scrawl artful doodles and generally make things look pretty. Frixion pens are perfect for those people who hate making a mistake, as they are erasable!
And any organized person would also LOVE something to put these pens into.
Basket gifts for organizers
Baskets are a key weapon in any organizer's arsenal.
There's almost as many uses for baskets as there are baskets.
From an organizational point of view, top uses for baskets include:
- A basket for each family member to put their various possessions in at the end of the day so they can return them to their rooms
- A basket for shoes at the front door
- A basket to dump all clutter in when unexpected guests announce they're on their way
- A basket for sorting incoming paperwork
- A basket for those items such as keys, wallets and phones

Book gifts for organizers
Closely related to the organizer's love for organization is their love of systems, and often their love of learning about potential systems.
This makes books on organization, tidying up, and other aspects of home management a winner as a gift for the organizer in your life.
Below are highly recommended books on organization from Amazon:
The life changing magic of tidying up steps you through the KonMari Method for simplifying, organizing, and storing.
The gentle art of Swedish death cleaning should be bought for its title alone! It's focused on the art of clearing your home of unnecessary things to make it easier for your family when the time comes, but anyone can benefit from such a decluttering at any stage of life. Mixed in is the author's story which is charming.
I'll admit that I was drawn to The complete book of home organization because I also have my books sorted by color. However this aside, it is an incredibly practical walk-you-through approach to getting your whole house in order.

I LOVE the t-shirt (ahem husband!).
