Whatever holidays you’re celebrating this year, the giving season is upon us! Gift shopping can be stressful, so why not go easy on yourself this year and do your shopping from the comfort of your Blueground home.
After all, with a custom sofa and fast Wi-Fi, there’s no reason to hit the mall this year.
We’ve put together this list of great gifts for everyone on your list, including items made in some of Blueground’s markets worldwide.
Forget that foam noodle you picked up at Walmart a decade ago!
Celebrity fitness guru Lauren Roxburgh designed her EVA foam rollers with textured points to relieve pressure and tension in the muscles and fascia.
So the smaller travel size is perfect for the road warrior in your life, while the full-sized version makes a thoughtful gift for anyone whose home gym is also their happy place.
This incredible lactic acid treatment from cult Texas brand Sunday Riley is like a Swiss army knife for your loved one’s skincare routine.
The aptly named Good Genes Serum contains a purified form of lactic acid that gently but thoroughly exfoliates — revealing smooth, bright skin — while powerhouse natural ingredients like arnica and prickly pear extract soothe and support the skin.
You may recognize a celebrity chocolatier from Nailed It! but have you visited one of his luscious chocolate shops in person?
Above all, anyone staying in one of Blueground’s furnished apartments in New York City has three locations to choose from, including the elaborate DUMBO flagship.
Even if you don’t live in NYC, you can still send these luxe bonbons to someone special in your life. The box combines 12 of Jacques’ classic hand-poured chocolates with 12 white chocolate emojis.
Full disclosure: we’re such huge fans of Parachute’s sustainable, high-quality linens that we use Parachute bedding and towels in Blueground apartments around the world.
So trust us when we say that this soft, fluffy unisex robe is an ideal holiday gift for anyone on your list. It’s lightweight, but warm, and has two deep pockets to make it even easier to lounge comfortably all morning long.
Also, the Waffle Robe is available in a variety of sizes, ranging from XS to 3X.
A scented candle is a perfect host or hostess gift — and you may want to get a second one to create a festive atmosphere in your own apartment as well. We love this long-burning candle from Seda France that combines the scents of balsam, cedar, and fir needles with grapefruit, orange oil, eucalyptus, and bergamot.
Of course, guests staying in our furnished apartments in Paris can simply zip out to buy this lovely candle in person at a local shop.
Anyone who lives in one of our furnished apartments in Seattle will want to check out Chukar Cherries. They got their start at the city’s famous Pike Place Market more than 20 years ago. It makes chocolate-dipped cherries that are delicious enough to grace any holiday table.
All in all, this cheerful holiday tin lets your recipients sample four of the orchard-to-table confectioner’s most popular varieties: Classic Milk Cherries, Cherry Bings, Cabernet Cherries, and Amaretto Rainiers.
This beautiful 14K recycled gold and conflict-free diamond ring from Mejuri isn’t intended for that finger, but it makes a powerful statement nonetheless. The five pave diamonds add some delightful sparkle to the yellow gold of the base, and the dôme design makes the piece light and easy to wear.
All of Mejuri’s jewelry is ethically sourced and ships within a few days.
If you’re anywhere near the U.S. capital you’ll want to raise a glass of this lovely small-batch brandy with your nearest and dearest.
Named after American folk hero Johnny Appleseed, this cidery wine is made from local apples. Republic Restoratives, a boutique craft distillery, was founded by two ex-politicos.
So anyone staying in one of our Washington, DC furnished rental apartments can order local delivery or arrange curbside pickup.
Weighted blankets have been a trendy gift for a few seasons now, and no wonder. Research shows that they can significantly improve sleep as well as boost relaxation and well-being.
Also, Bearaby’s weighted blankets are made in the U.S. from sustainable materials, and are available in 10-, 15- and 20-, and 25-lb versions. We like the organic cotton Napper, which comes in eight colors.
What if you could live almost anywhere for an entire year?
The new Blueground Pass lets you do exactly that! Our latest offering makes it easier than ever for our guests to move across apartments in our network of more than 4,500 furnished apartments — all at the best available rate.
Although we wouldn’t recommend buying the pass as a surprise gift, your recipient will certainly be floored by your generosity.
Of course, like everything else on this list, the Blueground Pass is an excellent way to treat yourself to amazing new experiences in the year to come.
We hope this guide has inspired you to shop for someone special.
At Blueground, we’re all about making life simpler, and that starts with where you live. Our turnkey furnished apartments in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North America are designed to let our guests pack only their clothes and a few personal essentials to start life in a new city.
