5. Makeup Case Help a makeup-loving kid tidy their bathroom by gifting this folding storage case. I had one of these when I was a kid and it taught to me take care of my makeup and hair accessories, but it also made it easy to get myself ready in different areas of the house if needed.
6. Divided Toy Case This is how my son stored toy cars when he was younger, and he loved driving them to their “garage” after a busy race day. It works for small collectibles like Shopkins and Mini Brands, too, and encourages imaginative play while cleaning up.
7. LED Star Projector Remember that amazing pack of peel-and-stick glow-in-the-dark stars your parents let you put on your bedroom ceiling? This is the hip to the times version, and it’s renter-friendly because it’s a projector. This is the kind of clutter-free room decor we love to recommend.

9. Pegboard Kit I had to include this kids’ version of one of my favorite accessories for adults. This kit comes with 4 pegboards, plus installation accessories, and is a great way to utilize wall space for storing items like art supplies, jewelry, gaming accessories, collectibles, and more. It’s also a great addition for a homework station.
10. Erin Condren Kids Planner This may be an Erin Condren planner, but its main purpose is not to manage a bunch of to-do lists. Instead, the kids’ version focuses on building healthy habits, like setting goals, saving money, and expressing themselves with a fun sticker set.
11. Acrylic Floating Bookshelf It could be for books, of course, but it’s also great for pictures, cards, records, or anything collectible, especially for teenagers. I have these for my smaller crystal collection, so if your kiddo is into collecting gemstones, here’s a way to get them off surfaces and on display out of the way.
12. Art Table & Chairs Set Art supplies are some of the hardest things to keep tidy because there are so many small pieces and sets that should stay together. This art table and chair set for younger kids has built in storage, so it’s an all-in-one mini art room just for them. Let them get creative with how they organize the shelves and make their own labels so they build organization habits early.
