Em’s Gift Closet Organization

Hands down my favorite thing about our home is storage space! After years of apartment dwelling, adequate closet space is heaven on earth!

I recently turned our guest room closet into a gifting station:

Here are five things I did to organize the space:

1. Our trusty white Ikea boxes keep light-weight gift wrap and ribbons on the top shelf. I used the same boxes at the bottom of the closet to organize my stock pile of gifts into four categories: ladies, gents, kiddos and baby.

2. Rubbermaids keep Christmas wrapping and craft supplies close in case I need them.

3. I used the clothing rails to drape tissue and packing paper. These can easily be combined or totally removed when guests arrive for hanging space.

4. A little stainless caddy holds wrapping essentials: tape, pens, gift tags and stickers.

5. A handy calendar hung on the inside of the closet door helps me keep on top of important dates.

How do you keep your birthdays and gifting organized?

    i love this!! Looks so crisp and white and clean! All my paper, tissue and other wrapping essentials are all sorted out in rubbermaid bins. They are in my unfinished basement so nothing pretty and glamorous. But, the thing that makes me most happy is that one day I sifted through all my gift bags and separated them out in different containers for quicker identification. I have Christmas, Birthday, Bridal/Baby and then Easter/Halloween/Valentine’s

    Hanging tissue paper from the clothing rod is inspired! Oh, how I’d love a gift station… Fun idea!
