Sure, he may forget to replace the toilet paper every once in awhile or she might leave her dirty dishes in the sink one too many times, but you still love your roommate. So why not show him or her some holiday love with a gift? The only question is, what do you get? Don’t worry, we’ve got a gift guide containing holiday gift ideas that your roommate is sure to love:
Gift Guide for Women
Nail polish is such a simple gift to buy, and it’s one that your roommate is likely going to use over and over again (plus, you can borrow it). Pick up one or two bottles of in festive, holiday shades, then attach some ribbon and a tag, and you’re good to go.
Coffee Gift Card:
For those late nights that turned into very early mornings, coffee has always been there to help you get through it. Give your roomie the gift that keeps on giving: caffeine. Pick up a prepaid card to the nearest coffee shop so she can stock up whenever she needs to.
If your roommate loves to cozy up on the couch and watch TV and movies, gift her with a warm fleece blanket, which can also keep your apartment’s heating costs down. You could also get her a pair of slippers that will keep her feet warm whenever walking across the often cold kitchen floor.
Gift Guide for Men
Your buddy will be glad he has this on hand when there is no other way of opening his cold beer. Urban Outfitters even sells a bottle opener/iPhone case so you can literally take it with you wherever you go.
When it’s cold outside and you’re wearing gloves, it’s impossible to text. But you can purchase gloves with handy slits that allow him to free his thumbs and index fingers for sending messages or dialing on his smartphone.
Sports Fan Gear:
Find out what his favorite sports team is and look for memorabilia that he can wear on game day or collectibles to put on display in his room to show his support. If you’re a really good roommate, you may even want to get him tickets to a sporting event (but only if you can go too).
