When I walk through the door at the end of the day, my keys, Metro card and other essentials are strewn about my kitchen island. This makes finding things the next morning a challenge. Recently, I bought a leather valet tray, similar to the one above, and it has made that hasty morning exit much easier.
This inexpensive fabric tray is a great stocking stuffer for co-workers, men with pockets full of stuff and women who never seem to know where their keys are. If you have a bit more to spend, consider a leather tray instead. Want to personalize your gift? Try these monogrammed catchalls from Mark & Graham that come in different sizes.
Also, if your recipient has trouble keeping track of her every day jewelry, try a trinket dish. I own this ceramic bird ring holder from World Market, and I love it. This giraffe dish from Anthropologie also caught my eye.
