When you hear the word ‘disorganised’ – there’s probably someone who instantly springs to mind. Whether they’re constantly losing their keys, forgetting what day of the week it is or haven’t seen their bedroom floor in weeks – it looks different on everyone.

Luckily, Christmas is fast approaching and it’s the perfect time to give them a helping hand in the right direction – and just before the New Year, too. From daily planners to jewellery trees and wine racks, there’s no shortage of useful gifts that’ll transform their lives for the better. And while we’re on the topic of organisation, be sure to order your presents in advance to ensure they arrive on time!

Here’s our 2020 Christmas gift guide for the wildly disorganised person we all know and love.

Daily Planner, $35.00

They’ll never double book themselves again with the help of this handy day planner. Plus it comes with stickers so it’s even more fun.

Tile Key Finder 2-Pack, $85.40

Know someone who can’t seem to keep track of their keys or phone no matter how hard they try? This will change their lives.

Quick Charge 60W/12A 6-Port USB Charging Station, $49.99 

The tech-crazy gift recipient will love having the power to charge all their devices at once, especially if their current charging situation is in disorganised chaos. It’s also a great gift for families as well – gone are the days of fighting for the last charging cable.

Lazy Makeup Bag with Drawstring, $13.96

It doesn’t matter if they’re travelling or just need somewhere to store their makeup – this bag allows them to throw everything they own inside before scrunching it up to maximise space. Then, they can lay everything out to save the hassle of digging around, genius!

Umbra Trigem Hanging Organizer, $42.29 

There’s nothing more frustrating than spending hours detangling necklaces from one another. The solution? A jewellery tree! It looks great as bedroom decor as well so it’s a double win.

Bamboo Makeup Brush Organiser, $47.25

If their makeup drawer is overflowing and they’re no longer able to see the bottom, this is just the thing. From foundation to eyeshadow brushes, there’s a tidy home for them all here.

Clean Your Sh*t Now – Getting Things Done Effortlessly Through The Simple Art of Home Organising Book, $31.46 

This might be a little less subtle but it’s a super interesting read on the power of organisation. If this doesn’t get them inspired to shake up their lives, nothing will.

Couch Organiser, $36.04

Wall Mounted Wood Wine Bottle and Wine Glass Holder, $37.93 

A cheeky device to not only hold their glasses but their wine as well? It’s a disorganised drinkers dream.

Bamboo Desk Organiser, $34.99

If they work at home but struggle to find any free space on their desk, this is just the ticket. Here, they can store books, gadgets and even a succulent or two.

Desk Drawer Organiser, $30.34

This gift is pretty self explanatory. Whether they’re disorganised or not, everyone has a drawer they’re ashamed of. With this organiser, they’ll never have to dig for their belongings again.


  • I’m a pretty disorganised guy, and the only one of these that I’d really use as a gift is the cable organiser. It’d be easy to make one yourself, but something like that pre-made would be a nice, neat godsend.

    • Hi Anthony – I’m the developer for Niggle It. We have several advantages over Excel – we send you regular reminders before the warranty runs out, you can attach images of your receipts, warranty cards and photos of the items, and obviously we have a nifty iPhone app so you can Niggle your purchases on the spot!

      We’ve spoken to lots of people who store things in Excel and they all say the same thing – it let them down when it comes to the crunch. They forget to back up the file, it gets lost, it won’t help you when you’re on holidays, when you’re on the road or when you forget to look at it – we’re all about actively keeping you updated.

      Our Lite account is free – give it a shot and let us know what you think!

      – Craig
