One of the biggest reasons people struggle with getting started on their food storage is because they don’t think they have enough space for it. This might just mean they need to organize a basement or spare room, or it might mean they need to get creative. Regardless, the job is always more fun if you have some nice shelving solutions to incorporate into your space.

Shelving/Organization Gift Ideas: Free or Under $1

Small Spaces Storage Solutions
Print out our Small Spaces Storage Solutions handout to give someone a great start at getting their space organized. You can roll it up with a cute ribbon and tag on it and offer to help them get started. This is a great option to combine with some of the other more expensive ideas too.

Cardboard Shelf Organizers
This gift is inexpensive but can take some time to prepare. We put together a tutorial on how to make rotating shelves just using cardboard and glue. You can make one of these and give them plans to make more, or make an entire pantry worth for someone if you are feeling ambitious. All you need is a little time and some old cardboard boxes.

Shelving/Organization Gift Ideas: $5-$30 Range

Plastic Cansolidators
If you want to give something a little sturdier than cardboard shelves, the Cansolidators from Thrive Life are a fairly inexpensive gift option. Depending on the size of their pantry you can get units that range from $21 to $41. Try to measure their pantry so you can buy the right size. You can get multiples if you want to be really generous.

Sturdy Plastic Shelves
If you know they have a good storage space in a basement or garage, you can get a mid-level plastic shelving unit that can be used to store a lot of 3-month supply foods. Go for plastic versus metal for inexpensive shelves because cheap metal shelves tend to bow in the middles.

Shelving/Organization Gift Ideas: More Expensive Options

Metal Industrial Shelves
If you are looking for a big ticket item, there are some great industrial shelving options available online, at your local hardware store, or even at Costco sometimes. These tend to cost in the $80-150 range and are perfect for storing a lot of emergency supplies, canned goods, or even buckets.

Thrive Life Pantry Organizer
If you are giving to someone REALLY special, you could make their Christmas by getting them a fancy Thrive Life Food Rotation System. These are incredible for rotation, come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes to fit any space and budget, and can fit either a variety of can sizes or all #10 cans.
