Keurig Coffee Maker
A Keurig coffee maker is a wonderful gift for any new roommate, especially if she has never had one before. It brews a single cup of coffee or tea at a time and can brew various flavors of coffee or tea. You can also choose from mugs, carafes and tumblers with free K-Cups included in the box so you don’t have to buy any.
Blowing Out the Air Mattress Pump
You might’ve noticed that air mattresses are usually pretty expensive to buy. This is because they’re made out of the most expensive and quality materials. They’re also the most difficult to inflate—so you better be prepared to spend an hour or two pumping up your mattress every time you want to sleep on it.
The problem with buying a cheap air mattress is that it’s not meant for long-term use. Are you going to need one every night? Maybe, but not necessarily. You’ll actually be in a situation where you’ll need one less than once a month, which isn’t too bad.
So what’s the alternative? It’s called a portable air mattress pump . For under $30 (or around $20 including shipping), you can get yourself an electric pump that will inflate your air mattress for you in about five minutes! Basically, all you have to do is press down on the button and presto, your mattress is inflated and ready for use!
An Inexpensive Coffee Table
This is a unique and useful gift that will make a great impression on your friend. It’s also a super easy gift to give. All you need is a bowl, spoon and some water so you can pour the coffee out of the box into the bowl.
You can easily do this in less than five minutes flat. Just get yourself some cups, bowls or plates (you don’t even need to wash them!) and fill up your empty bowl with water from the cup. After pouring the water over your food-filled bowl, add in spoonfuls of coffee for extra flavor.
The next step is to put your empty bowl with its contents on top of your friend’s cupboard shelves as if it were an actual table! It’s simple enough for anyone to do!
A Set of Pottery Beads
If your friend is looking for a small decorative touch to her new apartment, then she will love a set of pottery beads. You can find them at Hobby Lobby or Michaels craft stores and they are surprisingly inexpensive. They are great for putting on her coffee table or hanging around the room as decoration.
