Most of you will agree when we say that shopping for gifts can be equal parts fun and difficult. While we'd all love to give something cute and fancy, we also need to consider how the recipient would be able to make the most of our gift. This year, you may want to give out simple yet useful must-haves to your friends and colleagues. From organizers and scents, to planners and tote bags—these gifts won't go unnoticed:

1. Scents—candles, room sprays, and diffusers
