A gift closet is a dedicated space in your home for all your gifting needs; gift bags, wrapping paper, cards, ribbon, and products to gift. This is convenient, saving time and money on presents you'll need throughout the year for reoccurring holidays as well as when last-minute gifts in a pinch are called for. To help guide you, we've given thought to the best useful gifts to keep on hand and are sharing them in this post.
When choosing what to stock up on be mindful of items that would feel random to the recipient, like kitschy gag gifts, and stick to generic gifts so they don't become a dust gatherer. If you buy something specifically for someone, be sure to label it while you wait for the event to arrive so you don't forget who or when it's for.
