Still in need of a gift? 🤣❄️☃️🎅🎁👌 If you’re having some trouble coming up with a present for your roommates, friends or loved ones, why not give one of these a try?


Put Some Style Into It

Nothing puts a pep in someone’s step like a quirky pair of socks. If you want to get a gift you know they’ll use, you can’t go wrong with clothes. Does your roommate look like they need some new college gear? Browse around your campus store! It’s getting cold, so why not look around for a comfortable sweater or jacket for them? Consider statement accessories like sunglasses and watches too if you want to step up your gift-giving game!



This is one is a little harder. But if you think you have enough time and resources, then go for it! Hang out in your Kapi apartment and try your hand at arranging a candy bouquet. Did you get your roommate or friend a cute cup or mug? Make it the centerpiece of a hot cocoa kit (that you made yourself)! Or stuff it with their favorite candies and wrap it up with a nice bow. But if you had something specific in mind that you want to try making, there is definitely a guide online somewhere! The effort will be worth it when you see the look on their face when they open your gift.


Admit One

Who doesn’t enjoy a good movie? With all the new blockbusters coming out this season, there’s something for everyone! Choose from a variety of gift cards and ticket vouchers from your favorite theaters! It’s a quick check online if you want to compare prices, but they’re pretty affordable, so you can put the money you saved into fizzy drinks and a big ol’ bucket of popcorn to share between you and your favorite person.


Gift Cards

No need to panic if your roommate is impossible to shop for. Instead of wracking your brain trying to figure the absolute perfect gift for them, get a gift card. It’s practical, sensible, and allows you to focus the eight hours you would have spent at a store on writing a heartwarming card at your Kapi apartment desk instead.


Stocking Stuffers

In the event that you can’t decide on a single gift, make a stocking stuffer goodie bag with things you know your friend will appreciate. Small token items like scented candles, bath bombs, notebooks, pens, adult coloring books, and more are fair game. Pick and choose different gift combinations or stick to a theme (relaxation, Star Wars, etc . . .)  It’s never too late to be thoughtful, so stuff those stockings!

The art of gift giving is really stressful, but remember, it’s the thought that counts in the end. While you’re caught up in the holiday gift-giving frenzy, take a moment to appreciate the people in your life and just enjoy their company.

Happy Holidays! \(^-^)/
