Unique gift ideas for condo dwellers

Calgary Sun - Homes - - Homes - — News Canada

Smaller-spaced dwellings are both a trend and some­times a ne­ces­sity in our mod­ern age. In­creas­ingly, con­do­minium apart­ments, town­homes and du­plexes are tak­ing a larger share of hous­ing mar­kets, but what do you give some­one as a gift when they don’t have room for many things at all?

Here are some tips for gift­ing the small-space dwellers in your life:

n Ac­cent, ac­cent, ac­cent: Ac­cent pieces are one of the quick­est ways to per­son­al­ize a space when you don’t have a lot of room for state­ment fur­ni­ture or art­work. Stores like UNICEF Mar­ket by UNICEF Canada of­fer eye-catch­ing ac­cent pieces like sculp­tures and weav­ings from global ar­ti­sans in a va­ri­ety of styles to suit any num­ber of tastes.

n De­li­cious and de­light­ful: Even in the small­est of spa­ces, there is of­ten a rea­son­able amount of room ded­i­cated to kitchen stor­age. Give a gift that does dou­ble duty by be­ing both vis­ually ap­peal­ing and tempt­ing to the taste buds, such as a Hi­malayan salt grinder or art­fully pack­aged spices.

n Gift re­motely: For the condo dweller who has ev­ery­thing — and no room left to store any­thing new — con­sider giv­ing them a gift that takes up no space at all. Many char­i­ties, such as UNICEF Canada’s Sur­vival Gifts, of­fer the op­por­tu­nity to buy prod­ucts that are sent to chil­dren in need around the world when the need arises. In fact, it’s al­most like two gifts in one.


Ac­cent pieces, dou­ble duty gifts or a char­ity do­na­tion are great gifts for condo dwellers.
