This Father’s Day, show Dad how much you care by helping him get organized. An organized living space is a welcome improvement that can last even after Father’s Day is over (though after a week or so, he may need a little help keeping it that way!). Here, we’re sharing our favorite Father’s Day gift ideas for the Dad who could use a little help getting a handle on his stuff:

  1. Compact Tie Rack
  2. Help Dad get spiffy fast with a tie rack to help him organize and store his ties neatly. This classy wooden one from Brookstone is automatic, and mounts right over his closet rod so he can easily see if this tie goes with that shirt.

  3. Glass Storage Jars
  4. For a DIY Father’s Day gift, make dad some glass storage jars with etched labels for his stuff! Use them in the kitchen, in the bathroom, or at his desk – he’ll find these jars incredibly useful, whether he’s aiming to be the next Iron Chef or he just needs a place to store his paperclips. See how Martha Stewart does it here.

  5. Applecore Cable Wrappers
  6. Clear away cordage and extra wires with these handy devices that wind up any extra slack from his mouse, his printer, or his speakers. Dad won’t be able to recognize his desk once he puts one of these cable wrappers to use.

  7. Kitchen Pot Rack
  8. We always tell New Yorkers to make the most of apartment walls, and nowhere is this more true than in the kitchen. Give Dad some room to get down and dirty by getting him a pot rack for the kitchen – he’ll love displaying the tools in his culinary workshop, and you’ll get to reap the benefits!

  9. Multi-Use Tools
  10. In New York City, the only person in your building who needs a real tool set is the super.  Give Dad all the tools he needs for urban apartment upkeep with a combination tool like this classy Hammer/Screwdriver Combination Tool from Gam tools.

Sometimes the best gift is a helping hand. For a really great Father’s Day gift, do Dad a solid and give him the gift of organization that he doesn’t have to do! De-clutter his closet, his desk, or his bookshelves by packing unused items into a classy-looking underbed box. Better yet, hand him the key to his very own Manhattan storage unit!
