House Warming Gifts for People Moving into an Apartment

Do you know a family member or friend who is just about to move in to Poplar Ridge Apartments? You’d like to get them some type of house-warming present, but what’s the perfect gift for their new apartment. Here are a few ideas of items that few ever think about needing, but can be quite helpful for apartment living.

One of the great things about living in an apartment, for big problems, you just call maintenance. But what about the small things, like one of your appliances, or your car. For these occasional projects, you need basic tools, like screw drivers and pliers. The Apollo Precision Tools DT9706P 39-Piece Pink General Tool Set on does the job for $25.00.

One of the best and most used presents I ever received was a big book showing how to fix basic things around the home. Where’s Dad Now That I Need Him?: Surviving Away from Home is a self help book that anyone just starting out on their own needs to have. Again, available from for $16.95. By the way, there’s a companion book, Where’s Mom Now That I Need Her?: Surviving Away from Home , also available.

Before you went off on your own, and a button came off your coat, you simply asked Mom to take care of it. Kind of like with basic tools, people starting life in their new apartment often don’t have basic sewing tools either. The Singer 35 Piece Sewing Kit In Storage Box from is a gift for under $8 that will be highly appreciated by anyone living in their first apartment.

A good flashlight is not only needed when the power goes off, it’s quite useful to use when trying to plug cables into the back of your TV, sound system or computer. The INOVA X5 Dual-Mode UV LED Flashlight with its Titanium body is so cool, you might just leave it out on the coffee table for visitors to admire. At $36, it’s a little pricey for a flashlight. But it’s way cooler than the $2.99 plastic flashlights you can get at Lowes. Available from, which also has a lot of other cool items.

Here’s a gift you should give to any family member or friend about to move into Poplar Ridge Apartments, and you should give them this right now. It’s the Medique 40061 61 Piece First Aid Kit. This is a gift that could save a life, or just seem like a life saver when they’re looking for an aspirin one morning. $12.99 at Northern Tool.

All of these gifts are fairly compact.  But don’t worry about giving someone at Poplar Ridge Apartments in Fort Wayne something large.  Poplar Ridge Apartments have plenty of storage in their lighted storage areas in the attic.
