Are you struggling to find a decent holiday gift for an apartment dwelling young couple? Well look no further. This article will give you some advice on appropriate and useful gifts for the couple that you love so dearly.
Apartment Furniture: If the couple has been complaining about their furniture than one of the best gifts that you can give a young couple is a gift card to a discount furniture store. The reason being is because the young couple probably does not have the money to purchase better furniture for themselves so they will probably love it if you sprang for it (or at least part of it). In the alternative if new furniture is not in your budget try getting them a set of pretty furniture covers. This will let the couple know that you were thinking of them and were listening to their wishes.
Bed & Bath Accessories: For an apartment dweller it can be really hard decorating their bedroom and bathroom. If the young couple is on a budget give them a gift card to a bed and bath store. This will allow them the privilege of shopping for themselves while also giving them the tools with which to do it. If you do decide not to go with the gift card try purchasing a “Bed-In-A-Bag” and a bath towel set. This usually includes everything that they will need to have a beautiful bedroom and bathroom complete with fresh crisp linens.
Plain Cash: Many people tend to think that plain out cash is a cheap way to get out of holiday shopping. However, for a young couple who live in an apartment it could very well bring tears to their eyes. Many young couples do not have a lot of money. Thus, when you give them an decent amount of cash (decent meaning more then $50.00) they will probably truly appreciate your help. This money will likely go to bills, groceries and to other essentials.
Realistically just about anything home related will be a welcome help to the young couple. If you are in any doubt the best thing that you can do is just ask what it is that they would desire. While it may seem rude it shows that you are thinking of them and do not want to clutter their apartment with totally useless items. Remember if all else fails you can never go wrong with a nice hand written note and a check.
