Holiday shopping can be stressful and expensive, especially if you have a lot of people to buy for. Luckily, a present doesn’t have to be pricey to be meaningful. Here are some thoughtful picks for the people in your apartment building, from your roommate to the building manager.
For Your Roommate
A Commemorative Print
Wall art is a great gift because it’s something people like to have, but don’t necessarily want to spend money on. Consider ordering a custom print for your roomie, so they’ll always remember when you lived together.
A World’s Best Roommate Mug
Does your roommate sip on a cup of coffee or tea every morning? A World’s Best Roommate mug is a silly (but practical!) present they’ll love.
For Your Neighbor
Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix
If you run into your neighbor from time to time, why not drop off a thoughtful holiday treat? Just fill a mason jar with hot cocoa mix, marshmallows, and crushed candy canes. Don’t forget to leave a note!
Soap & Hand Cream
You can never go wrong with bottles of seasonal soap and hand cream— it’s festive and something your giftee can actually use in their apartment. (Gift Tip: Pick up a few of each to have handy for last-minute presents.)
For Your Building Manager
Whipping up a batch of holiday cookies is an easy way to show appreciation for your building manager, even if you don’t know them very well. Consider baking a nut-free variety, in case they have any allergies.
Give your building manager something to dress up their desk, like a cute picture frame or a fun mug they can use to store pens and pencils.
For Your Boss
A Thoughtful Candle
Get your boss a small potted succulent to keep on their desk. Succulents are easy to maintain, and your boss will feel appreciated by you every time they see it.
