1. An over-the-door organizer, so you can say you have this whole "tidying up" thing firmly in your pocket.

Promising review: "Great for organizing the pantry, craft rooms, and bathrooms. Finally have a way to keep all the junk off my counters. Pockets are huge, hooks leave a low profile (so no issue with scratching), and seems very sturdy for holding all my junk so far (it's mostly holding way too many hair products in my bathroom at the moment). Love that this is clear so you can see everything." —BreannaGet a two-pack from Amazon for $12.87.

2. A card-holding hedgehog that'll give you the poke you need to get cleaning.

Promising review: "I originally bought this little card holder for its cuteness, but it has become very useful. I also bought the armadillo card holder. Instead of using it for business cards, so far I have used it for mini Post-it Notes, which I constantly rely on for easy-access info. Before these card holders, all the overlapping Post-its lying on the table had left a sticky residue." —ConsumericiousGet it from Amazon for $10+ (available in six colors and in hedgehog, armadillo, and turtle designs).

3. A desktop organizer and planter to remind you of the outdoors while you're holed up at work.

amazon.com, amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review (large desktop planter): "Words cannot describe how much I love this little planter! It is exactly as advertised, it is such a great statement piece for a dull office desk. It came very well-protected in styrofoam and bubble wrap, and it even has little anti-scratch bumpers on the bottom. I love love love it!"—Haylee

Get the Blok Lamp (left) from Amazon for $24.42, the small desktop planter (top right) for $12.39, or the large desktop planter (bottom right) for $21.99.

4. A multi-use tabletop organizer that flexes harder than a Bachelorette contestant — it sorts your mail, hangs your keys, and holds your loose change.

Promising review: "Perfect gift! Love the keys in the lock design (they're cut at the top so you can easily hang your keyring on them). Great for my Dad who throws loose change there, hangs his keys and even has a slot for outgoing mail." —DKGet it from Uncommon Goods for $9.99 (on sale, originally $65).

5. A cleverly constructed typewriter cup that'd probably make Ernest Hemingway shake his damn head.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I love this so much more than I thought I would! As a writer who adores antique typewriters, this is sitting on my desk where I do most of my writing, and every time I look over at it, I can't help but smile! I also purchased some half pencils (a box of 48 from Express Pencils on Amazon), which look great resting (sharpened sides up) in this mini-typewriter replica. This is a solid, quality piece that looks and feels as though it was carved from a block of wood. Also, I really like the imperfection of the paint on this item as I am sure this was intentional to give the item a more vintage look. Everyone I have shown this to has felt the same way I do about this. Overall, I couldn't be happier with this product!" —Monique

Get it from Amazon for $19.49.

6. A retro trinket stand that'll transport your displayed items to the '80s (or your bedside table).

Promising review: "It's got a good weight to it and it's a really cute piece for my chest of drawers. I keep other jewelry there and it's a nice little decorative piece to keep go-to jewelry on that you don't want to dig in a box for, or is just nice to display." —SeraiahGet it from Anthropologie for $28.

7. A wooden desk organizer with a built-in sliding calendar, so you'll never lose track of time (unless you're having too much fun organizing, of course).

Promising review: "I love this. It fits my iPhone 7 perfectly. I ordered colored pencils made of twigs and placed them on the other side, and it is a beautiful piece of functional art on my desk. I love the sliding calendar as well." —KarteroliGet it from Amazon for $18.99.

8. A tiered accessory holder that strikes the perfect balance of flashy but not too flashy, sophisticated but still simple.

Promising review: "Love the size and modern simplistic design! Not too heavy and displays my jewlery beautifully! Definitely a great buy!" —MizzGlamm77Get it from Amazon for $20 (also available in smaller "ring holder" size for $12).

9. A multifaceted dock you can hang all of your electronics from — there's even a slot to secure your cable while your phone is charging.

Promising review: "Exactly as pictured. I was looking for something different for my husband and this was perfect. He can keep everything he needs to get out the door in the morning on it, no more scrambling around to find everything he needs for work. He loves it." —Kaitlin JohnstonGet it from JigsawFurnishings on Etsy for $29.99.

10. A mini shopping storage cart to store your trinkets in, if you're someone who gets mopey thinking about cleaning but elated at the thought of shopping. (Or cosplaying as Stuart Little.)

amazon.com

Promising review: "They are super cute and a lot higher quality than I expected. I bought two, one for my desk and another for craft shows to hold my business cards in. The wheels spin, the basket seat pulls out, multiple carts interlock like real shopping carts, and my pens and mechanical pencils fit comfortably between the grids in the basket." —Staru

Get it from Amazon for $2.76.

11. A rotating makeup organizer with an abundance of space that can be used to store up to 30 makeup brushes and 20 skincare products.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This, is by far, the best thing I have ever purchased on Amazon. I have a desk that I use as my computer workstation / makeup vanity and this saves me so much space. Here's my experience with it so far: It's unexpectedly sturdy. I thought it might be a little flimsy when I pulled it out of the box and assembled it, but it exceeds my expectations. It holds a lot of products! I was surprised at how much it held. It has a handy little portion for brushes and oddly sized tubes. The top 'tray' has three functional shelf portions. The rotating tray makes it easy to find products and keeps everything within reach (a huge plus, considering I'm practically blind without my glasses on)." —Ann

Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in two designs and in black, white, and transparent).

12. A geometric catchall for tossing all your remotes, condiments, or, idk, 3-feet-long CVS receipts into.

Promising review: "Such a cute storage piece that keeps your trinkets organized and your furniture not looking cluttered. Not mad at the price either!" —AliciaGet it from CB2 for $14.95.

14. A sculptural stainless-steel bowl you can use for fruits, grooming supplies — or, hey, even on its own as a pretty piece of $10 modern art.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "After getting tired of having keys just thrown on the counter when everyone gets home, I purchased this to use as a key bowl in our kitchen. It is plenty large enough for four sets of keys to be placed in it with room to spare. The bowl looks very nice, and looks much more expensive than it actually was. It makes a very nice, decorative addition to my kitchen while providing a solution to a clutter issues I had been struggling with." —mom of 2

18. A spool-shaped stoneware caddy for your sewing essentials that comes with a built-in pin cushion topper and scissor rest.

Promising review: "My mom is someone that always says she doesn't need any presents because she has everything she needs. Well this year I'm going to challenge that. See, she's a hardcore quilter. When I say hardcore, I mean she has a quilting room where she quilts full-time. You would think a woman who has it all still wouldn't need to use a couch arm for sticking her needles when she does appliqué on the couch. She loses them. I sit on them. Rough. Well, this product fixes that ALL. And in a really cute, fun way. Most years I don't know what to get her, but when I saw this I knew — THIS WAS THE YEAR!" —Quilter's DaughterGet it from Uncommon Goods for $58.

19. A chic silver pill box you can whip out like you're Daniel Craig or something.

Promising review: "Beautiful simple box with fun history (chestnuts and cold remedies). It stays closed in my purse and isn't too bulky while being larger than most of metal pill boxes I've seen. It's nice because you can set it out on a bedside table or desk without it obviously looking like a pill box as well (vs something plastic and see through or traditional pill box shape). I've had it for a few months now and haven't had issues with scratching or discoloration." —VieveGet it from Amazon for $29.95 or Lumens for $30.

amazon.com

Promising review: "OXO has terrific products that last a lifetime. I like that the lids have small grooves in them so that when you stack other OXOs on top, they don't move around. Just redid my entire pantry using OXO and it looks great — my food is fresh and and I see what I actually have!" —CAChickadee

26. A flamingo with a hidden compartment, because if you can't have that personal tiki bar of your dreams, this seems like a reasonable compromise.

cb2.com

Promising review: "I have tried to talk myself out of this ever since I first saw it. 'It's plastic!' I told myself. 'It will be big and garish.' 'The top will slide off.' But I could not help myself: I ordered it. So, let's look at my objections. Plastic? Yes, but heavy, solid. You could conk a burglar over the head with this thing and said burglar would be out cold till the cops arrived. Big and garish? Not as big as I thought. Right-sized. Garish? Well... It IS a pink flamingo. The top will slide off? No! It has a clever catch. The top won't come off until you take it off. So let yourself be mesmerized by its pinkness, its vividness. You will be charmed from the moment you unpack it. Speaking of which, it was SO well packed. Brick house, baby. That flamingo will sustain no damage no matter WHAT happens on the way." —Jessy

Get it from CB2 for $29.95.

27. A classy walnut caddy that can easily be converted from tool box to cosmetics holder to office-supply organizer.

Promising review: "Such a cute organizer! It might look simple, but it's actually such a brilliant design — it's minimalistic but still gives you a chance to store your belongings the way you like. I have this on my bedside shelf/table and it holds all my knickknacks I need at night: i.e., earplugs, eye mask, meds, etc. The little tray also slides so you can customize the layout. The quality of the set is also superb. At under $10, I think this is a really good deal given the quality and beautiful design. I've yet to be let down by Umbra." —steppanyakiGet it from Amazon for $39.30 (available in three sizes and two colors).
