Welcome to December and Happy Holidays from the Barrington Place Apartments Blog! As the holidays become more and more commercialized, it feels like there is a lot of pressure to buy everyone really nice and expensive gadgets. We’re here to tell you that you don’t have to spend a fortune to let someone know that you care about them. This month, we’re recommending a few simple gifts you might buy for different personalities in your life.

For the Geek

Nintendo NES Cartridge Coasters

If you have any friends or family that grew up in the era of the very first Nintendo Entertainment system, these coasters may be the perfect gift. They serve a practical purpose and will fill the recipient with feelings of warm nostalgia.

For the DIYer

Smartphone-friendly Work Gloves

A new pair of work gloves is never a bad idea for someone who always seems to be doing projects with their hands. Plus, they won’t even have to take this pair off in order to use their smartphone. How convenient!

For the Book-lover

Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover

“Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home.”
