Buying gifts for someone with limited space in the house can be tricky. This list combines a few useful items, such as organizational tools, with nice little things that they won̵
A Power “Tower” Hub
Typically, a small living space also means fewer outlets (and far too many outlets blocked by furniture). This power hub turns one outlet into 8 outlets with 4 USB ports.
Each outlet is divided to fit even large plug-ins (looking at you, MacBook owners) and it features a surge protector for safety. Plus, it has a 3-meter cord, which means it’ll finally make that hidden exhaust behind the sofa useful. It is a functional gift that they are sure to appreciate.
A Google Chromecast
You might think we recommend the Chromecast because it’s super small and fits right behind your TV, out of sight and out of mind, turning your TV into a smart TV with the addition of streaming features. However, that’s only part of it.
Sure, Netflix at your fingertips is great, but many compact streaming devices can. One of the coolest perks of the small space Chromecast is the ability to turn your TV into a giant digital photo frame. For people who can’t hang a lot of photos – either because they simply don’t have wall space or because they don’t want a fuss from their landlord as long as they have bayillion holes in the walls – the Chromecast makes it dead simple to enjoy a constant stream. updated flow of personal photos, stunning photos from all over the world and more.
This reusable shopping bag set
Reusable grocery and produce bags are better for the environment and will help your friend avoid storing dozens of plastic bags in their home – if your “pantry” is actually a cupboard next to your stove, who can afford to have room for bags? to give up? This set comes with 3 product bags, 3 bulk food bags and 1 large reusable grocery bag. They are made with muslin, so they are easier to clean than reusable plastic bags.
Space-saving side table
The unique design of this table allows it to be pulled out during use and slid into a sofa or chair when you need more floor space. It also includes a side pocket for magazines, books or a tablet. It is a perfect accessory for small houses and apartments.
Instant Pot Duo Mini
Instant Pots are known for their ability to act as multiple different cooking utensils. This mini size is easy to store in a small space. With just one device, they can make yogurt, steam vegetables, bake herbs, cook meat quickly, make rice, slow cook stews and prepare hot meals.
Lightbox that changes color
As fun as it is to hang up Christmas decorations, people with limited storage can’t afford to have too many things to keep up with all year round. This lightbox comes with numbers, letters and symbols that can be changed for each season, so that a few weeks later “Happy Holidays” can easily turn into “Happy New Year”. It also changes color to match the rest of their decor. Do you like the idea? View more light boxes and letter boards here.
Compact popcorn machine
This popcorn machine is more compact than most models, but still makes 16 cups of fresh popcorn. No additional ingredients are needed (except kernels, of course), and it includes a butter-warming tray if you want fresh butter on your popcorn. There is even a recipe book for fun treats with popcorn.
Cast iron pan
Cast iron skillets are the ultimate all-in-one pan. They can bake, broil and simmer meals, and they are oven safe for baking. This will help them reduce kitchen clutter and save precious cupboard space.
This ottoman offers an extra seat and a fair amount of storage space, so it’s perfect for small apartments. It comes in five different colors so you can find one to match your friends’ space. This model is also foldable for easy storage when not in use.

This coffee maker takes up minimal space and is perfect for single or double households. It’s only 13cm wide and 28cm deep, so it’s easy to store in a countertop or cupboard. It can also hold up to 9 K cup pads at a time.

Just because your friend rocks a tiny coffee machine like the tiny K-Mini Plus we just recommended doesn’t mean they should miss out on the fun milk-based coffee drinks. This manual milk frother hardly takes up any space and makes their morning drinks feel more delicious.
It comes in 24 different colors and has thousands of high ratings. It turns any drink into a frothy treat in just a few minutes.
