This post is all about the best gifts for a new apartment.

Did someone on your list recently move into a new apartment? I’ve got the best list of gifts for a new apartment.

Moving into a new apartment is so exciting. A new place can mean a new beginning and a fresh start. It also means buying a bunch of new things.

Help out someone you love fill their apartment with things they will actually need and will use.

I’ve listed some practical items that most people don’t even think about.

Every apartment list that I’ve seen has the basics but this one definitely has some things you probably didn’t think about. Get the something they’ll love you for buying!

Here are the best gifts for a new apartment.

Best Gifts For A New Apartment

Air Fryer

I think I’m going to put an air fryer on every list because these things are really the best invention of this decade. I’m not sure if I’ll ever fry anything the regular way ever again.

Ninja Blender

Perfect for making smoothies and frozen mixed drinks if you’re into that.

Electric Tea Kettle

An electric tea kettles save so much time. If you’re a tea drinker this is a must have. I hate putting my tea in the microwave and I don’t always have time to wait for water to boil on the stove. This tea kettle is a life and time saver!

Toilet Wand Cleaning System

I hate touching the toilet wand even with gloves on. This makes it so much easier to get that thing clean.

Knife Set

No kitchen is complete without a set of knives. This is perfect when you can’t think of what to get someone for a new apartment.

A Drain Snake

If you are prone to shedding in the shower this gift is for you. You will thank me later when your tub is clogged, and you don’t have to pay a plumber $75 to show you his crack.

Charging Station Dock

Never worry about not being able to charge your phone and tablet at the same time again. This docking station offers you multiple outlets for your devices. Stay connected. Perfect for someone with lots of gadgets.

Kitchen Drawer Organizer

You don’t realize how much having a kitchen drawer organizer matters until you don’t have one. I made the mistake of buying one that was too big for my drawer. Then I thought, “No big deal I’ll just put them in the drawer for now.” LIES! I had to go get one immediately! It looked like I didn’t care about my silverware and we can’t have that.

More Gifts For A New Apartment

Silk Pillowcases

If you’ve never had your hair done and you didn’t want to mess it up then you may not understand. If you have then you know the importance of a silk pillowcase! This is a great gift for someone that likes to visit the beauty salon faithfully.

Container Lid Organizer

What a hassle it is keeping up with these things! I’m not sure if they are walking away from my house but I’m positive that they are leaving on their own accord. This is a must have. I’m about to order 2 of them.

Plug In Air Sanitizer

This little thing works hard at keeping the air you breath nice and clean. It also gets rid of odors. A great gift for someone with pets in their home.

Microfiber Sheets

These are the softest sheets on Earth. I know you may think you can’t afford these sheets but I’m here to tell you that you totally can! A great gift for an apartment or housewarming.

Hanging Shelf

Is there a better way to look more adult like than to buy someone some home décor? This is super cute and will fit in with almost any style room.

Refrigerator Organizer Bins

These bins will have your fridge looking like the grocery store. Let your inner organization hacks run wild with these organizers for your fridge.

Over the Door Shoe Rack

Perfect for the shoe lover that has shoes piled up in the closet or under the bed. Hang this shoe rack over the closet door for maximum storage space. Buy two if you know you have way too many shoes!

Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan

These frying pans are perfect for someone that is just starting out. They are non-stick and easy to use. You can practice cooking your favorite meals without the fear of burning all your food.

Haley’s Original Corker

This little gadget is designed to keep your wine fresher longer. It’s a filter, stopper, and aerator. It’s so annoying when you lose the bottle cork. I’ve put aluminum foil over the tops of many wine bottles over the years.

Dish Squeegee

Wash dishes like the professionals with this dish squeegee. It’s super flexible, it can get into bowls. Also, clean your sink and countertops.

Couch Coaster

No more trying to balance your cup on the armrest of the couch. This coaster will ensure you and your guest will have a place to sit your drink. This is the perfect housewarming gift.

Sink Caddy

You’ll be doing someone a favor they never knew they needed with this gift. A sink caddy for you sponge is a small gift that keeps your sponge right were you need it to be.

Toliet Paper Stocker

This shelf serves the purpose of keeping all your toilet paper right where it needs to be BY THE TOLIET. I’ll never understand why some people put the toilet paper so far away from the place you’re going to actually need it!


I didn’t know these existed! I need them right now. Keep your fitted sheet on your bed with these BedBands. I literally go into a rage when my fitted sheet pops off my bed. Just throw the whole bed away.

Auto Shut-Off Safety Outlet

Forgetful people’s dream come true is an auto shut-off outlet. This outlet will shut off after a predetermined amount of time. No more wondering if you cut the flat iron off before you left for class or work.

Upright Broom and Dustpan Set

This broom and dustpan combo has grooves that clean the things that get out in the broom out. How clever is that. I hate picking things that get caught up out of the broom.

Precision Cooker Nano

This is the perfect gift for someone who loves to cook. You’ll never overcook your food again because you’ll be able to monitor your food from your phone. This is so futuristic!

Fancy Salt & Pepper Shakers

Give dinner a little razzle dazzle with some fancy salt and pepper.
