What is a Catch all Tray?
Catch all trays, known by some as valet trays, are the ultimate way to keep your personal belongings organized. There’s nothing worse than needing to get to work or go meet a friend, only to find that you’ve somehow misplaced your keys, wallet or phone. The right catchall tray can help you keep track of all those small and easy-to-lose items that you rely on daily. It can add a sense of organization to the chaos and can help reduce the stress that comes with misplacing important things.
The best catchall trays will provide a home for your accessories while adding personality to whatever room they’re placed in. You can place these vessels by the front entrance of your home, on a coffee table, or even your nightstand. The combination of style statement and decluttering power makes this a must-have buy in our eyes. From mid-century wood to modern ceramic, there are endless aesthetics to choose from. There are even high-tech options that charge your phone while storing it alongside other objects.
Factors to consider include size (what EDC items will you be storing?) as well as the material used and quality of it. For instance, if you’re someone that likes to toss your keys from afar, a highly delicate porcelain material might not be the best idea. Some trays have a softer look, while others use more rigid, solid materials. Below, we’ve navigated the top 15 catchall trays for men, curated to fit your every need.
