Gift Guide to the Person Who Just Moved Out

It’s safe to say that Christmas season is now here and we are in full swing on the gifting season. Today, I want to touch upon a unique sort of type of gift – a good holiday gift for someone who is moving out on their own for the first time, whether that may be for college or their first apartment. Many of these gifts are things that they may want, but they probably won’t think to ask for something like this for themselves. That said, here are some great ideas for someone who first moved out on their own. 

Air Fryer:

This is hands down one of the best things I could have ever done for my kitchen, because I can do so much with it. I warm up frozen foods, leftovers, I make French fries, and there is so much more you can do with it that the options are endless. If they don’t already have this, I highly recommend that this. 

Coffee Maker:

Coffee makers are expensive, but they are so worth it. If they drink coffee, then this will save them so much money. And, there are so many different price points for coffee makers, as well as different brands. For example, there’s Nespresso, there’s Keurig and so much more. Having a coffee maker is so helpful because you can make a cup of coffee almost anytime that you want. And, the price per cup is significantly lower than Starbucks. 

If you can’t decide between the many different options out there, I highly recommend that you get a Keurig, and the mini one would be perfect for someone who is living alone. My reasoning is because you can do so much with it. You can brew hot water for tea, coffee, and so much more. And, the variety of pods is also amazing as well. 

Amazon Firestick:

This is hands down one of the best things that I have purchased for my house. I recommend this to anyone, because there is so much that you can watch with it. You can stream YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, Apple TV, Prime TV, Disney Plus, and more. This is such a cheaper way to get cable, and what I personally love about it is that you get to watch whatever you want whenever you want to do so. 

Brita Filter:

This is one of those items that you would never purchase for yourself, but once you do, you can’t live without it. I’ve had this for a few years now, and I’ve been loving it. It saves both money and space, since you’re not buying water bottles. This is a cheaper alternative to buying water, because you pay anywhere from $17-$30 for the actual pitcher, and then you pay $17 for four filters. Since you change the filters once every three months, that’s basically $17 a year for water. This is definitely going to be a gift that will be used. 


These are the go-tos, and for good reason – everyone can always use them. In the case of towels, one of the things that people don’t realize that you need more than one of is dish towels. Furthermore, it’s also good to have an extra throw blanket around as well for décor, for the bed or even to have lying around on the couch when watching TV. 

Phone stands:

This is hands down one of my favorite Amazon purchases. Basically, it’s a stand that keeps your phone, your watch, and your AirPods organized. What I love about this is that it keeps everything in one place, and looks great on your nightstand.

  1. I think the most valuable thing we have is our toaster oven. Everyone gets a toaster since it’s cheap, but the toaster over is so perfect for when you need an oven for only a few people (or just yourself). My hubby at first thought it was silly but I think he’d have a harder time living without it than me at this point. Ha!


  2. I definitely use my Kuerig more than anything! I wish they had been around when I was in college… we’d tried to make ramen in our old school coffee pot and it was terrible. Now I make ramen at home weekly using the hot water feature.
