Last Minute Amazon Gifts Under $30 for Renters

Is it really too late to do a little Christmas shopping? It’s true, the holiday is just a few days away, but that’s why Amazon Prime exists!

In case you’re still on the gift hunt for your favorite apartment dweller, we got you covered!

For the Plant Lover

Apartment plants are the biggest trend right now. Whether it’s turning your one bed, one bath into a full-blown jungle or having a simple potted plant on your kitchen window. Regardless of your preference, there are some serious benefits to becoming a happy plant owner.

If you know someone who currently resides in an apartment, we know two kits from Amazon with your name on it.

The first is a Nature’s Blossom Herb Garden Kit. It will certainly come in handy for the person who loves to cook. Having fresh herbs in your home is a cooks dream. The kit includes organic seeds for Thyme, Basil, Cilantro, Parsley and Sage. Amazon has it in stock for $19.99, and it has a 4-star rating.

This second gift is Nature’s Blossom Bonsai Garden Seed Starter Kit! The Bonsai culture can be both a hobby and an art form. Keep in mind, a Bonsai starter kit does need to be regularly cared for, but this beautiful, unique plant is definitely a conversation starter.

The Chef that Needs a Little More Room

In apartments, kitchens tend to be stripped down to what is absolutely necessary. Sometimes space and storage are compromised.

For the chef in your life, one kitchen tool every apartment owner should have is a YAMAZAKI home Tower-Ladle & Lid Stand. Tired of having nowhere to put your steam filled lid while cooking? What about the food covered spoon or spatula? This simple gadget is too useful for its own good! Plus, it received a 5-star rating on Amazon.

For the Techy

Know someone who’s dreaming for the home theater, but doesn’t know how to create the look in an apartment? Introducing a Luminoodle LED Backlight! Seems too simple, right?

Placing an LED strip behind a tv or computer screen can reduce eye strain and improve contrast. For only $9.99 and a 4.5-star rating, you’ll definitely reach best gift giver status.

The Person with a Sensitive Nose

If you’ve ever lived in an apartment, there’s a chance you’ve experienced strange smells every now and again. Maybe your next door neighbor decided to cook bacon and that delicious scent made its way into your living room. If you don’t have bacon stocked in your fridge that could lead to serious problems. Another example is someone smoking outside near your window and the smell of cigarette smoke begins to cloud your apartment.

If any of those scenarios bother you or someone you know, we have a few reliable options for you.

At Franklin West, our priority is making sure our residents live at their best. Any way we can accomplish this, we will do it. We hope this gift list will help any last minute shoppers! Maybe you’ll even treat yourself to one or two of these items too.


Happy Gifting!
