As with every holiday season, there will be a lot of gift-giving this month, which means that it's time to make space in the children's rooms for what is about to come. These items help organize and tuck away clothes and toys, and they do so in style.
Named the Maude Box, this unusual storage unit features a book cubby and a large toy bin (the top lifts up like a puzzle piece). Made from birch plywood, the box is coated in low-VOC, water-based polyurethane. $425 at Modmomfurniture.com
This reproduction schoolhouse steel locker features fun shelf storage for items you want tucked out of sight. It measures about 64 inches tall and 23 inches wide, with a depth of 18 inches. What we like is that the piece can be used by your child at any age. $1,500 at Eclectic Home, 8211 Oak St.
We like the retro classroom feel of these oversized, wall-mounted clip hooks, which makes them just right for a child's room. It's easy to get clothes off the floor when all you have to do is hang them on top of the clips. The clips are fully functional, so they can grip objects, too. $20 (set of three) at The Occasional Wife, 4306 Magazine St.
Wintertime often means an entryway strewn with children's coats and scarves. This durable 4-foot-tall sculptural tree enables kids to be more tidy. Just hang coats and accessories on the branches, and voila -- one step closer to a neat space. $85 at Angelique Baby, 5519 Magazine St.
Aptly named the Hide-n-Sit armchair, OFFI features a basic yet fun chair for children, and hides away storage in the seat. What we like, aside from the secret space, is that the design appeals to both children and adults. $169 through Cameron Jones, 2127 Magazine St.
Sleek and minimalist, this "Eiffel" storage unit has ample storage for a child's room. Its compact design allows you to use space wisely, and it offers additional open storage in the center. The doors come in ebony, white and birch. $630 at Modern Market, 3138 Magazine St.
