Moving can be rough. The move into a new or first apartment? Fuhgeddaboudit. Those sleek hardwoods and charming alcoves may have been the selling point, but they can also highlight all the necessary-but-missing items the rest of us take for granted. Save that stylishly labeled bottle of wine for the housewarming party after they’ve settled in, and turn your focus now to kitchen essentials and multipurpose decor pieces. These gifts will make them think of you (and your excellent taste) for years to come.
