8 Hours of Organizing with The Olive Branch
November and December are packed with events and get-togethers, so it’s easy to understand why homes get so messy following the holiday season. With so many New Year’s resolutions revolving around organization and cleaning, offering a gift of professional organizing is sure to make people everywhere merry and bright.
“Receiving a gift like this would make my heart happy,” Patti said. “When all the excitement and the hustle and bustle of the holidays disappears, it is sometimes hard to feel motivated to clean and organize everything.”
Motivated by bringing peace to an otherwise chaotic space by creating an efficient, functional, and aesthetically pleasing space, The Olive Branch creates a personalized strategy for each client to prioritize their primary concern.

For the ultimate foodie or those who want to gift the perfect accessory for a well-stocked outdoor kitchen, the Koda Portable Outdoor Pizza Oven is one of the best options for convenience, even cooking, and efficiency.
“Everyone who knows me knows I love a good pizza,” Tanner said. “This is a fun and affordable way to make true brick-oven style pizza at home with the family!”
The larger 16-inch size allows for easy turning and manipulation of pies, while the smaller 12-inch model is lightweight, more affordable, and still delivers a professional-quality pizza.

Help the people on your list get a jumpstart on their New Year’s resolution of saving, investing, and making better decisions overall when it comes to money with award-winning author Morgan Housel’s book, The Psychology of Money.
“This is one of my favorites of all time,” Tanner said. “My copy is highlighted, notated, and earmarked thoroughly. It’s one of those books you can end up re-reading every 3-4 years.”
Housel helps put investing, personal finance, and business decisions into perspective while providing a unique look at how people view and think about money.
Soho Ludlow Notebook
A luxuriously classic gift for the businessman or notetaker in the family, the Soho Ludlow Notebook offers iconic Burlington leather that is elegant yet hard-wearing.
"Call me old-fashioned, but I still love to take physical notes instead of doing everything on my computer or iPad, "Tanner said. "I have found that writing things down in a notebook tremendously helps my recall, general comprehension, and organization of my ideas. This notebook travels with me everywhere, and I use it daily.”
Handcrafted in England, this mid-size notebook is made from the finest leather and contains 192 leaves of Smythson's signature gilt-edged, pale blue featherweight paper. Personalize it with initials, a meaningful motif, or a witty inside joke.
Mirage Travel Watch Case
While a fancy timepiece might be your first thought regarding the dedicated watch enthusiast in your life, don’t forget that they have to take their favorite pieces with them when they travel. That’s where the Mirage Travel Watch Case comes in.
“Over the past few years, I have become incredibly interested in watches and horology in general,” Tanner said. “As such, I have collected an assortment of different brands and styles of watches. The Mirage Travel watch case allows me to bring a few different types of watches with me when I travel, and I can rest easy knowing they are protected.”
Made with espresso-finished leather, the case is sturdy, attractive and keeps the two watches from colliding. It is secure with its three snap fasteners, flexible cover, and unique flat base. While we suggest the Espresso Brown with Ivory White, the case comes in various colors, including Jade Black and Midnight Blue.
