The person you're shopping for? She's watched The Home Edit (maybe more than once) and owns every Marie Kondo how-to book ever written (there are seven, including two children's books, a manga and a cookbook). Are there wire baskets in the kitchen cabinet? You bet. Labels on every spice jar in the pantry? You know it.

Basically, she (or he!) knows exactly what to do when organizing the home like an absolute pro—like, Khloé Kardashian stacking each individual cookie in a glass jar's level. That's where we're at.

We're beyond baskets, bins and labels at this point in the tidying journey. It's the more obscure, ultra-specific organizing accessories that you're looking for—whether it's for somebody else or, you know, yourself.

Keep reading for 11 of the best organizational gifts for those who have surpassed Organization 101. As always, the prices listed may fluctuate over time.

It's not just that photos must be organ; they also must be protected. The Photo Archiving Organizer from Hammacher Schlemmer is a splashproof polypropylene case that can sort, organize and ultimately archive up to 1,600 photographs. Inside, you'll find 16 individual cases that hold 100 photos—4 inches by 6 inches. Each of these cases secures tightly with a plastic lid, and in true organizational fashion, everything is see-through so that the organizer has visuals on everything. Not only is it a meaningful gift for anyone who appreciates staying neat, but it also makes the perfect gift for anyone who needs some help organizing keepsakes and memories.

With 4.8 stars on Hammacher.com, one reviewer wrote, "I'm currently trying to organize hundred[s] of photos and this is just what I've needed. Many of the ones I'm trying to organize are loose photos and there are numerous photo albums as well. Needless to say, these take a lot of space. The photo organizers hold voluminous photos and are a real space saver."

The easiest way to have a Merry Christmas is to have an organized Christmas. There's no greater pain than tangled string lights or ornaments that have broken or gotten scratched because they weren't put away correctly. And while the Moisture Resistant Christmas Ornament Storage won't help you detangle any lights (we recommend the Holiday Light Storage Box for that), but it will protect your ornaments and other decorations, keeping them in tip-top shape. With five sectional trays, 73 slots for 3-inch ornaments and nine slots for 4-inch ornaments, pockets for decorations and also adjustable compartments for any size figurines, you'll have plenty of room for those keepsakes. This handy-dandy holiday organizer is made from breathable canvas that zips closed to ensure no harm comes to your treasured possessions. One BirchLane.com reviewer wrote, "Very large and sturdy. Holds all my ornaments and room for more!"

Calling all Cricut lovers and craft-makers! We don't care what you make with your vinyl, but you know what's always a good idea? Organizing that vinyl to rainbow-ordered perfection. The Vinyl Roll Rotating Carousel by Simply Tidy is white with nonslip feet, a 360-degree rotating base and three tiers of displaying. Able to hold 36 rolls of vinyl in total, it saves space, makes all vinyl rolls more visible and therefore more easily accessible and frees your workspace of clutter.

One Michaels.com reviewer wrote, "This is a great way to accommodate all kinds of vinyl. Whether big or small they fit on the turntable and it moves easily so you can see what you are looking to use." Another added, "I managed to fit almost all of my shimmer vinyl on this and it's so much easier to see what I have."

The Simply Tidy Rainbow Photo and Craft Keeper sticks with that beloved rainbow aesthetic. Ideal for crafters, scrapbookers, creative types, teachers or parents with young children, this storage box houses 16 cases that can be organized by the color of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. You know, every organizer's favorite way to visually sort items of different categories. Aside from craft items, it's also great for keeping photos protected and sorted. Featuring a lid design that allows for stacking the assorted color cases, each small and larger case is acid-free and designed with a snap-tight buckle to ensure they stay shut.

When it comes to organizing your holidays, the Zober Premium Wrap Organizer is so much better than any Excel Spreadsheet you keep to remember what you bought every member of your family. (Although, that really helps, too.) That 4.8-star rating and more than 12,600 reviews on Amazon.com really speak for themselves! With dimensions of 14 inches by 40 inches by 6 inches, this gift wrap organizer is made of durable polyester and vinyl that's tear-, puncture-, fade- and moisture-resistant. It's got two clear vinyl pockets for storing bows, labels, tags, tape, scissors (and other items), a space-saving divider—plus, space for 18 wrapping paper rolls up to 2.5 inches thick and up to 24 wrapping paper rolls 1.5 inches thick.

One Amazon.com reviewer wrote, "This is exactly what I was looking for! I had a vertical plastic tote for wrapping paper but it just took up too much space. I had a separate tote for bows and then tissue paper, gift bags and tags were scattered. I love that I have everything in one place and it slides under my bed out of sight! My favorite part is the little Velcro divider at the end. I moved it to the center so the long 40" rolls have room and it makes the perfect spot for bows and little gift boxes."

Travel neat, too. For the expert organizer who just about owns every organizational product there is, make sure her purse meets her high standards of sorting items, too. The Mumi x Neat Clutch is a delicious collaboration designed to simplify and sort—even while on the go. A multi-use clutch that can hold all standard everyday essentials—from credit cards, cash, coins, toiletries and more—the world's most organized wristlet is made of wipeable vegan leather and is large enough even to tote a tablet or Kindle.

Not sure about you, but I'm the kind of organizer that shoves things into drawers. As in, out of sight equals out of mind! But we all know that there's a lot more to the art of organizing than cleaning off the countertops. The mantra "everything in its place" totally applies to inside a drawer, which is why the drawers also deserve organizers. The KMN Home DrawerDecor 16-Piece Customizable Drawer Organizer is the ultimate drawer-clutter solution as it allows you to reposition different pieces to personalize the drawer space. Featuring a nonslip surface that prevents utensils from sliding and a 100 percent food-grade safe silicone base mat (that's dishwasher-safe, BTW), this organizer also includes 10 short divitz and five triangles that efficiently secure, store and organize items.

Simplehuman is known for its sleek, convenient and functional appliances, but it's the Wall Mount Grocery Bag Dispenser we're most obsessed with at the moment. That's because so many of us have an unfathomable collection of plastic bags—whether that's garbage bags bought from the store or plastic ones we've somehow accumulated over time with the intention to reuse them. The Simplehuman Wall Mount Grocery Bag Dispenser frees those plastic garbage bags from the unholy space underneath your sink with easy-access openings. It can fit up to 30 bags through the top opening—clutter-free and easily accessible. Mount this ingenious organizing product right on the wall, under a shelf or inside a cabinet to save space. Ready to grab one? Simply pull a bag out of the dispensing slot.

Oh, and the customer feedback is impressive, too. It has 4.8 stars and more than 25,000 Amazon.com reviews, with one reviewer writing, "There's only a few things that you need to know about something that merely holds plastic bags. Number one: does it hold enough bags that it seems worth it? Yes. Number two: When I jam way too many bags in there, does it fall off the wall? Fortunately, no. Number three does it look stupid or cheap? Answer no. Overall result: good product, good price, good fasteners so I didn't need to use any screw to install it. Win!"

Coffee drinkers, it's time to organize your stuff! Why not? Plenty of other caffeine-lovers have done the same by purchasing the DecoBros Crystal Tempered Glass Nespresso Storage Drawer for Capsules. In fact, this organizing product has amassed 4.8 stars and more than 20,600 reviews on Amazon.com! Rave results like that are enough to turn even the most religious of tea drinkers into coffee addicts. (Although, come to think of it, this organizational product totally works for Nespresso capsules of all kinds!) Able to store up to 40 small capsules or up to 20 large pods, users most appreciate the sliding drawer see-through shelf that makes all of the contained pods visible. It saves you valuable countertop space, and let's be honest—it just looks pretty! One Amazon.com reviewer wrote, "Perfect for my Nespresso Vertuoline! This is a great product, holds both sizes of Vertuoline capsules perfect and it looks beautiful on my counter. Even has room to hold both my Vertuoline and the Aerocchino Plus Milk Frother."
