Crap-Free Christmas Gifts

"Where's all the clutter?" -Ladybug
Berry Holiday Capelette by Bugduds

Here's an oldie but goodie for today:) Enjoy.....

As an organizer, I hear confessions on a regular basis. I've heard about the food that's been in the pantry since the '90's, the authentic disco pants that still make appearances, and the most common confession of all, "Beth, I just own WAY too much crap!" As Americans, we ALL own too much crap. So lets do each other a favor! With that, I bring you the 2nd annual Crap-Free Christmas Gifts.

Give the gift of an experience. Season tickets are the gift that keeps on giving!
  • Astros/Rockets/Texans Tickets
  • Gym Membership
  • Concert Tickets
  • Dinner Theatre Tickets
  • Season Tickets to the Houston Zoo
  • Baby sitting tickets - to give to a busy mom to "cash in" whenever she'd like


Anything that will eventually be used up in some shape or form.

Couldn't we all stand to learn a little more?
  • Cooking Lessons
  • Spanish Lessons (If you are shopping for me, please buy me this..I no habla any espanol)
  • Ballroom Dancing - guys..your woman would be floored if you got them this
  • Self-defense class
  • Continuing education classes
  • Flying lessons - how cool would that be?
Gift Certificates
Not all gift certificates have to be boring! Here are a few that will be greatly appreciated!
  • Custom portraits (great for families!)
  • Car Detailing
  • Bed & Breakfast - a 1 or 2 night getaway
  • A local greenhouse gift cert - present it in a beautiful pot eager for a new plant
  • Maid Service (for a month or even a year)
  • Netflix or Blockbuster Online - my brother got me netflix last year, and it could be the best gift I've ever received!
  • Spa services - massage, manicure, facial, etc. (this is a repeat from last years's that important)
  • Image Consulting or Professional organizing service from Tres Chic Designs (teehee)
