People who live in tiny homes don’t have a lot of extra space for stuff they don’t need. That’s why we put together this practical gift guide for tiny house aficionados. From organization hacks to yummy coffee, any tiny house dweller will love these gift ideas.
1) Magma Nesting Cookware ($125-$215)
Limited space in a tiny house means organizational hacks are always appreciated! These Magma Nesting Cookware sets are made out of marine grade stainless steel and store in less than 1/2 cubic foot of cabinet space. They’re non-toxic and non-stick, and oven safe up to 500 degrees. Perfect all around pots!
2) Spice gripper strip clips ($8-$10)
Get those spices off the counter or out of a cabinet by adding some of these clips to the inside of a cupboard or two. It’s the perfect way to keep that tiny house kitchen clean and organized.
3) Aeropress Coffee Maker ($20-$30)
We just adore the Aeropress Coffee Maker.It’s small, easy to use, and it comes with enough filters to last a year. We love that it won’t tip over and spew coffee everywhere like a regular pour-over setup. Plus, it brews some of the best coffee we’ve ever had! This coffee maker barely takes up a lick of space.
4) Stainless Steel Magnetic Knife Strip ($15-$50)
A stainless steel magnetic knife strip is a great gift for a tiny house dweller. They can take those knifes out of a drawer or countertop knife block and stick them on this strip. It puts knives easily within hands reach when cooking, and is a great tiny house safe saving hack.
5) Folding Collander ($40-$45)
Regular collanders take up so much space in a cupboard, that this folding collander will really tickle a tiny house dweller’s fancy. The collander folds completely flat for storage – 12 hinges lock it into position for use.
6) Kindle ($100-$250)
Living in a tiny home means you don’t have a lot of space, and no space to lug around a bunch of books. I’m addicted to my Kindle Paperwhite for ease of use and portability, plus, I’ll never be without a book! A Kindle can be connected to a hotspot signal to download a new book on the go. Plus, the Kindle Paperwhite, which I own, is backlit and can be read anywhere without disturbing a sleeping partner. I go everywhere with my Kindle, and hope I never have to go without!
7) Bluetooth Speaker ($70-$100)
I can’t tell you how often we use our Bluetooth portable speaker; it’s great for a small space. A Bluetooth portable speaker is small enough to store, but packs a big punch for music. Who wants to listen to music from a smartphone speaker? We use the Sony XB-20 with Extra Bass and it’s been more than enough to play our favorite hits.
8) Mini DeHumidifier ($40-$70)
When dealing with someone living in a tiny space, it’s good to think small. This mini dehumidifier is lightweight, compact, portable and can remove up to 9 ounces of water per day. This dehumidifier is great for keeping damp spaces free from mold, something you definitely want to avoid in a tiny home.
9) Shark Rotator Cordless Vacuum ($100-$250)
This Shark rotator vacuum is light and easy to maneuver around a tiny home, thanks to its swivel steering. This powerful little vacuum weighs only 7.5 pounds and has two speeds ideal for both carpeting and hardwood floors. Also, it charges in just four hours.
10) Floating Bookshelf ($15-$25)
If the tiny house dweller in your life has a thing for books, this floating bookshelf is going to be a godsend. It’s a beautiful way to display favorite hardcover and paperback books, and even better, it keeps those books off the shelves. What a great way to reduct clutter in a tiny house.
A digital picture frame is the perfect way for a tiny house dweller to display their most prized photos. This is especially great at a time when photo albums seem to be going by the wayside, as everything is taken in digital. This digital picture frame doesn’t take up much space, but is a wonderful way to cherish memories.
Consumables are always appreciated by people who live in tiny homes, as its something they don’t have to store for very long! Try gifting some premium coffee, local honey or jam, or beer and wine. If you want to get extra creative, you could bake a few meals a tiny house dweller can keep in their freezer.
13) Gift cards! ($$ up to you!)
No tiny house dweller will ever be upset to get a gift card as a present. Not only do they not contribute to “stuff”, they are invaluable for someone living small. Here are ideas for the best gift cards to buy for tiny house dwellers:
- Amazon gift card
- REI gift card
- Trader Joe’s gift card (have to buy in-store)
