Shopping for Teens and Tween's this time of year can get expensive. The clutter in a teen's room can stop you from going out and buying more stuff for your kids. But, instead of buying stuff to add to the clutter, why not find items that will assist your child to get more organized? This week, I will be sharing organizing product gift ideas for tweens and teens to help them get and stay organized. Let's start.
Seven Organizing Product Gift Ideas for Tweens and Teens
Gifts to help your tweens and teens organize school supplies
Whether you have a middle school student or a college student, a well-organized school supplies space will make it easy for them to know where things belong and where to find the items. Pick items that will give them a sense of control and pick a place to store these items that are convenient to them, not you. They need to take responsibility for their stuff after all. The below items are gift ideas I found on Amazon (affiliate).
Gifts to help your tweens and teens organize their morning routine
Observe how your child works in the morning. Are they running from floor to floor to get their stuff together? If they are, maybe it's time to create an area just for them. Pick items that can hold their book bag, other supplies, gym clothes, shoes, and coats. These items can easily be hooks for behind the door or as complex as a cubby system that holds different items they need for different days. Start with a simple system. If you find that isn't working, make the system more detailed for your child. They may need a little more guidance.
Gifts to help your tweens and teens organize their car
Organizing a teen's car will help your child manage their room. Items in a car can quickly get piled up and disorganized. But having a space for each piece will make it easier for them and you when you both need to find something quickly. Items like an insurance papers folio, a first aid kit, a small snow shovel, a bin that organizes the items in the truck, and even a console if their car doesn't have one are all great items to keep the car organized. The fewer items that move around in the vehicle, the safer the vehicle interior will be for your child.
Gifts to help your tweens and teens organize their bookbag and pocketbook
Keeping the inside of your teen's book bag and a purse can be difficult unless you spend the time and find a bag with many inside pockets. Below are inserts that you can purchase and add to your kid's existing bag for more pockets to sort their things. These items are from Amazon as well (affiliate).
Gifts to help your tweens and teens manage their time
I'm a fan of paper calendars for teens and found that digital schedules are great as a supplement to paper time management planners. This one from Order Out of Chaos offers your child a section at the bottom to write down the activities and other tasks they need to do each day. It provides a place for each subject and helps your child plan out their week at a glance. Two page weekly calendars teach your child how to plan accordingly and make time for everything. If you click on the image, you can purchase it through their website. (I will receive a referral fee for your purchase.)
Gifts to help your tweens and teens organize their room
Organizing your child's room is critical for a more organized life. Buying organizing products to make the closet more organized, the nightstand easily accessible, or maximizing hidden spaces will empower your child to take control of their room and hopefully give them the motivation to keep it organized. Buying these items now will be handy for when they move out or go away to college also. The images below are from Amazon and can be purchased there.
Gifts to help your tweens and teens manage their money
Assisting your kids to learn how to manage money is easier said than done. Keeping the conversation open with no judgment will give them the opportunity to learn. Buying them a wallet or sharing books with them that talk about managing money will provide them with a glimpse of what they need to handle when they are adulting in the future. Below are some items I found on Amazon. (affiliate)
