Seana’s Top Gifts of 2021

Sleigh

Once again, the holiday season is upon us. As much as we love giving gifts, finding the perfect present can be a little stressful. Often we don’t know what people want, what they already have, what size they wear, what color they like, how much space they have and other information that would help us find “the perfect gift.” In my humble opinion, you can’t go wrong with the gift of efficiency. Gifts that help people to get organized and be more productive deliver joy all year long.

There are many great products out there. Here are a few of my favorites (links are in the product names). Given supply chain delays, I cannot guarantee that all of these will be available in time for this holiday season. Hopefully if you see something you like, you can bookmark it for a future gift-giving event if you cannot get it right now.

[Note: I am not being compensated to promote any of these products, I just like them.]

  1. I love the lists you put together, and this one for gifts is terrific! The step stool is a great gift for the “vertically challenged.” I have first-hand experience, as you know. 🙂 As a matter of fact, I keep one of those (a purple one) in my closet for those hard-to-reach shelves. The mini Meori box is awesome, and they come in so many gorgeous colors! I considered using the outside band to attach binder clips. How clever! The collapsible shark bin for kids (with a see-through front) is adorable, and I’m sure kids will love it.

    1. I have fun collecting ideas for this post all year. Wish I had a little one in my life for that shark bin – so adorable!! I have stools in almost all of the closets in my house, and one in my car for work. That folding one is great because it takes up so little space. I can picture you on your purple stool!!!

    1. We all totally devour anything from Wolferman’s. I think getting muffins is a nice change of pace from candy or fruit. The battery organizer is a must. If no one buys you one, just buy one for yourself!

  2. I love the titles you used for who the gift is for. I liked the pegboard for tools. They don’t need too much wall space. Thanks for showing me the pouch to attach to a bra for runners. I might purchase that. There are lots of fun and interesting gifts for everyone on your list. Happy holidays
