Gift Ideas for People in Apartments

We love buying gifts for people we care about, but sometimes it’s a mission just to think what they’d like.

This is especially true for those who live in small apartments and just don’t have the room for anything bulky or unnecessary.

The first thing we’d suggest is, of course, the AVA Byte. Just because they don’t have an outside space, doesn’t mean they should be able to grow their own herbs and vegetables.

The AVA Byte sits nicely on the kitchen counter or on a shelf and will do everything to keep your plants alive, no matter how busy you get. You can even ask Google or Alexa for a growing update and find out when you’ll be ready to harvest!

Making good use of the space means every little thing has to look great. Here are a few staples that every home needs, but are often forgotten about.

Cutting board - The John Boos Walnut Chopping Block from Crate & Barrel shows us that everyday kitchen staples don’t have to be boring. This checkerboard design is made from American black walnut.

Keep your fresh fruit on display and looking as good as they taste with this Tiered Wire Fruit Basket from Williams Sonoma.
