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

 

Nothing beats a refreshing scent to calm the nerves after a long day. Check out Scents and Sensibilities wondrous products and choose the one that suits your friend's personality. Our personal favorites include Tangerine Ginger and Yuletide Pine. For more details, follow Scents and Sensibilities on Instagram.

2. Storage—boxes and catchalls

 

Boxes are versatile must-haves that can be used at home or in the office. This wooden box from The Coolist can be used to store glasses, tiny accessories, and other knickknacks. See how you can get a personalized item here.

RL Tip: Aside from boxes, you can also drop by Daiso for colorful catchalls you can give to your loved ones. These can be used to organize jewelry or even hold loose change.

3. Canvas bags and pouches

 

These come in handy for trips to the grocery or days when one simply wants to visit the mall and do some window shopping. Fellow bookworms can also rejoice! These bags are perfect when you want to bring a few titles with you on a solo trip.
