Every friendship group has that one friend who is constantly losing their keys and forgetting what day of the week it is. There’s a chance they also haven’t seen their bedroom floor in weeks. If you’re wondering why this visual representation is oh so accurate, in my social circle, that friend is unapologetically me. Chances are, those of you reading this at home, have a mate who also sprung to mind at the mention of ‘disorganised’, too.
In light of this, tis’ the season to get organised, baby. 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!
