Last Minute Clutter-free Holiday Gifts

It’s crunch time, people! With just five days until
Christmas, it’s now or never to finish up that holiday shopping.
Even though I’d love an organizing gadget or two in my
stocking, I’m all about giving clutter-free gifts. One thing
is for sure; these gifts won’t end up in the re-gift pile.

Beauty and Relaxation
What girl would turn up her nose at a spa gift card? But no
worries about expensive spa prices if you’re on a budget. Use Yelp to find a
local manicure and pedicure spot near your favorite girl. My other beauty favorite
is a gift certificate for a blow out from Dry Bar.
Entertainment
Tickets of any kind are a brilliant gift for the guy or gal
on your list. Think Broadway, concerts, sporting events, or even plain old
movie tickets!
Classes
Giving someone an experience is sure to create a special
memory. Some of my favorites in New York City: cake decorating classes from
Sugar Flower Bake Shop, photography lessons from JP Teaches Photo, dance
lessons from Simone Assboeck, and flower arranging from Sarah Tallman Design.
There are lessons on almost anything and everything out there, so get to
Googling.
Donations
Giving back to others, especially this year after the
hurricane in New York and the tragic school shooting in Connecticut is
sometimes the perfect gift for the person who has everything. Consider making a
donation in their name to worthy organizations helping folks through these
tough times.
Time
The best gifts don’t have to be extravagant. The gift of
your time is incredibly meaningful, because everyone knows just how valuable it
is. Offer to babysit for your nieces and nephews. Or cook dinner for your best
friend.  
Organization
Why not give a loved one the gift of more time and less
stress? A gift certificate for organizing services is the perfect option. To
purchase or learn more, simply call 646-942-8676 or email

Happy holidays!
