As the holiday season approaches, you’ve probably begun searching for the perfect gifts for everyone on your list. Holiday gift guides can be helpful during the hunt, but they may also be exclusive to people who own large houses or reside in other permanent dwellings. Our gift guide is catered specifically to apartment residents and the presents that would make their cozy homes feel even more luxurious and personal. If your loved ones are thriving in an apartment, this is the perfect place to discover the presents that they will enjoy for a long time and will mean the most.
Who doesn’t love a trendy kitchen gadget? Charcuterie boards have been all the rage for a while now, and we don’t see them going out of style any time soon. Their wooden serving trays often double as a perfect cutting board, creating a twice as useful gift that will be used over and over again. Whether your giftee enjoys snacking on cheese and crackers while binging their favorite Hallmark movie, or creating dazzling displays of grapes, pepperoni roses, and elaborate dips to be enjoyed by a crowd, a set of charcuterie trays will be the gift that keeps on giving.
One of the best parts about living in an apartment is the lack of yard work. However, some residents still long for a living plant to care for and nurture in their homes. Gifting potted plants provides a customizable experience for your apartment-renting friends. The gardener in your life might enjoy large flower pots that they can tend to on their balcony. Any amateur or professional chef would appreciate a mini herb garden to grow the freshest of ingredients for their dishes. Even your friends with a less-than-green thumb can enjoy the beauty of a succulent garden, allowing for a nearly-maintenance free plant experience.
No matter who you’re shopping for, gifting a little greenery and life into a home can have many benefits, from cleaning the air to freshening up the space. For an even more personalized touch, you can consider choosing a pot that speaks to their unique personality. Plants are a wonderful gift no matter the time of year, but especially when the world is covered in a blanket of snow.
If you’re busy this holiday season, but still want to give a meaningful present that will be enjoyed for months to come, this is the perfect solution for you. There are a plethora of various subscription boxes that you can research for your entire gift list. Snack boxes are a popular variation, with varieties that specialize in chocolates and sweets, cheese snacks, or foreign treats. Pampering boxes often include samples of lotions, candles, bath bombs, or other self-care items. There are even subscription boxes for children, shipping toys or activities curated for their interests and ages and sure to keep them entertained. The best part of these gifts are that they arrive each month for your selected period of time, so it really is the gift that keeps on giving, without you having to lift a finger.
Temporary video doorbell
Companies such as Google, Amazon, and others are creating secure and convenient ways to keep an eye on your home. Video doorbells powered by batteries can be secured with a velcro strip or other temporary options so that apartment residents can utilize their features even in a hallway. This makes a great gift for your tech savvy family so that they can be alerted when a package arrives or when you’re coming to visit. With varying price ranges, it can also provide an opportunity for you to stick to a budget or splurge on the special people in your life.
In today’s technology driven world, it’s simple to turn any home into a smart home, with apartments being no exception. Amazon Alexa devices, Google home devices, and other companies offer voice controlled features to take apartments to the next level. Offering features such as bluetooth speakers and integration with accessories including smart plugs, video cameras, phones, and televisions, your loved ones can enjoy a home that’s controlled by a simple voice command. Gifting these virtual assistants can be simple, or become more involved if you bundle accessories that they would enjoy with your present.
