The Most Thoughtful Gifts For Small Apartments & Tiny Homes

Buying home gifts for someone who lives in a small apartment or tiny home can be tricky. Small-space dwellers don’t have a lot of room for extra stuff. So gifting should be well thought out and at best useful.

There are some things to keep in mind when buying gifts for someone who lives in a small home:

  • Scale,
  • Function, and
  • Purpose

If the gift doesn’t fall into at least one of these categories it may not be the right choice for the home. Luckily there are a ton of options that they’ll love! Here are some amazingly useful and thoughtful gifts for small apartments and tiny homes.

I split this list into 3 sections for all the skimmers out there:
