Gift Guide: The Slightly Disheveled Home Enthusiast

One of my friends is so well-organized and super-tidy that she has a side business as a personal organizer. Alas, that's not the case for most of us — myself included! It seems as if half of my home time is spent simply organizing the clutter and tackling the dust bunnies. Since the majority of us will always need an extra hand in keeping things sparkling and clutter-free, I've pulled together some eco-oriented and design-forward products that will help your friends keep their homes green and clean.

For a few words of advice on assembling this gift idea, as well as my picks for the slightly disheveled home enthusiast,


So, my first word of advice on giving this gift is not to give it to anyone you're romantically involved with! As someone who once received a cast iron pan from a boyfriend for her birthday, I can tell you that this will not go over well. Instead, save this gift for a friend or family member who's recently moved, or who you know will appreciate a practical gift. Giving these gifts to someone who's making the switch to green cleaners is also a smart idea. If you arrange all of the cleaners, microfiber cloths, and other products in one of the organizing containers or design-forward trash bins, and tie it together with a big bow, the whole package will look great when you give it, too!

I was hoping on some nifty gifts for storing my unsightly cleaning products. Some of these are great, but be careful giving cleaning supplies as gifts. It may insult the recipient.

I would LOVE to receive a gift like this and definitely would not be insulted! I know we need help in the cleaning department! I love products like Mrs. Meyers but usually don't buy them because they are expensive. They smell soo good though!
