Holiday Gift Ideas for the Impossible-to-Shop-For

'Tis the season for giving, and finding the perfect gift for that one person who's seemingly impossible to shop for can be a holiday headache. But fear not - RPM has got you covered with a selection of unique and thoughtful gift ideas that are sure to bring a smile to even the most discerning individuals. Let's unwrap the mystery of holiday gifting for those hard-to-please loved ones.

Personalized Gourmet Gift Baskets

Nothing says "I care" like a thoughtfully curated gift basket filled with gourmet treats. Customize a selection of their favorite snacks, wines, or specialty foods to create a personalized gift that's sure to impress. Consider adding a selection of local delicacies to make it extra special.

Experiential Gifts

Rather than gifting physical items, consider an experience that your loved one will cherish. Tickets to a live show, a hot air balloon ride, or even a cooking class can create lasting memories. RPM can help you find experiences near your loved one's location.

Subscription Boxes

Subscription boxes have gained popularity for good reason. They offer a continuous surprise each month. Choose a subscription that aligns with your recipient's interests, whether it's gourmet coffee, books, or wellness products. It's the gift that keeps on giving.

Home Improvement and Decor

For those who love their living spaces, unique home decor items or tools for home improvement can be a hit. Think of personalized art, stylish furniture, or high-quality kitchen gadgets. RPM properties provide the perfect canvas for these thoughtful additions.

Wellness and Spa Packages

Give the gift of relaxation and self-care with a spa day or wellness package. Many of RPM's locations have world-class spa facilities nearby. Consider bundling a spa gift certificate with a stay at an RPM property for the ultimate pampering experience.

Charitable Donations

If your hard-to-shop-for person is passionate about a particular cause, consider making a charitable donation in their name. This not only shows you care about their values but also makes a positive impact on a cause they hold dear.

 

Finding the ideal gift for those "impossible-to-shop-for" folks doesn't have to be a daunting task. Whether it's a personalized gourmet gift, an experiential adventure, a subscription box, home decor, a spa package, or a charitable donation, there's a thoughtful gift waiting for every personality. 

Make this holiday season extra special with our unique holiday gift ideas that demonstrate your love and appreciation.

Last-Minute Costume Ideas To Create At Your RPM Luxury Apartment

Spooky season is officially upon us, and the countdown to Halloween is in full swing! If you’ve maaayyyybbbeeeee procrastinated on your costume this year, don’t worry - you aren’t the only one! Luckily, we've got you covered with some last-minute Halloween costume ideas that will ensure you're the life of the party in and out of your RPM luxury apartment.

 

Ghostly Glamour

Turn a plain white bedsheet into a stunning ghostly gown. Accessorize with statement jewelry, dramatic makeup, and a tiara to become a glamorous ghost that will haunt the halls of your RPM Luxury Apartment in style.

DIY Superhero

Unleash your inner superhero by crafting a costume from household items. A bedsheet can transform into a cape, and cardboard boxes can become your superhero emblem. 

Classic Witch or Wizard

A witch or wizard costume is always a hit - you literally can’t go wrong with this one. Raid your closet for dark clothing, add a pointed hat (or craft one from black construction paper if necessary), and complete the look with a broomstick. Your RPM Luxury Apartment could even be your coven's perfect meeting place!

Movie Character Mashup

Combine elements from your favorite movie characters to create a unique costume. For example, mix Harry Potter's glasses with a Jedi robe – the possibilities are endless.

Decades Throwback

Choose a specific decade (e.g., '70s, '80s, '90s) and raid your closet or a thrift store for era-appropriate clothing. Your RPM Luxury Apartment can be transformed into a time machine for a true blast from the past.

Punny Costume

Get creative with wordplay by creating a  pun-inspired costume. For example, tape cereal boxes to your clothes and go as a "cereal killer." With this idea, your costume can be as creative - or basic - as you’d like.

Modern Pop Culture Icon

Pick a beloved pop culture icon and replicate their look with what you have on hand. Whether it's Marilyn Monroe's red lips or Steve Jobs' black turtleneck, your RPM luxury apartment can become the backdrop for your transformation.

Classic Vampire

Halloween just wouldn’t feel complete if someone wasn’t vamped out. This year, it can be you! Dress in dark, elegant clothing, add some fake fangs, and a touch of pale makeup. Bonus points for fake blood drips from your “prey”.

Mastering Appliance Cleaning for a Sparkling Home at RPM Living

In the world of luxury living, every detail matters, and that includes maintaining the pristine condition of your appliances. As an RPM resident, you're no stranger to the art of refined living. These tips will help ensure that your exquisite living space remains as breathtaking as the day you moved in.

Regular Maintenance

Consistency is key. Schedule regular cleaning sessions for your appliances to prevent dirt and grime buildup.

Gentle Cleaning Solutions

Use mild, non-abrasive cleaning solutions specific to its material to ensure your appliances' surfaces remain unharmed.

Appliance-Specific Cleaning

Each appliance has its cleaning requirements. Consult the manufacturer's guidelines for the best cleaning practices, and find a product that works best for your space, and your budget. Remember: not all cleaning products are REALLY for everything.

Interior Cleaning

For appliances like ovens, microwaves, and refrigerators, deep clean the interior periodically to prevent odors and maintain efficiency. It may not be fun in the moment, but you’ll thank yourself later.

Seamless Stainless Steel

If your appliances feature stainless steel, use specialized stainless steel cleaners to maintain their lustrous shine. Resorting to products that are not safe for stainless steel can cause streaks, smudges, and even rust. 

Quick Tips for Common Appliances

Refrigerator

Remove expired items regularly (ideally when you’re taking out the trash), wipe down shelves, and vacuum the condenser coils to prevent buildup from dust, hair, and other grime.

Oven

Use self-cleaning cycles when applicable, and clean spills promptly to prevent baked-on messes. Nobody likes turning the oven on and getting a burning whiff of last night’s oil drips on the bottom rack.

Microwave

Wipe the interior after each use and clean the exterior to maintain a spotless appearance. Prevent spills, splashes, and other messes by always covering your food with a microwave safe container, or even a paper towel to make things easier on yourself.

Dishwasher

Clean the filter regularly and wipe down the door seals to prevent mold growth. If you ever notice an odor coming from your dishwasher, run an empty cycle with vinegar and baking soda to give your drain a deep clean. 

Preserving Luxury, One Appliance at a Time

By adopting these cleaning practices in your RPM luxury apartment, you're ensuring that your appliances continue to reflect the elegance and sophistication that your residence embodies:

Our Top Tips For Learning To Live With Roommates

Living with roommates can be a rewarding experience, offering the chance to share costs, create lasting friendships, and make memories together. However, it also comes with its unique set of challenges. At RPM Living, we understand the importance of fostering a harmonious living environment for all our residents. 

In this blog, we'll share valuable tips for living with roommates to ensure a peaceful and enjoyable coexistence in your RPM Living apartment. Let's dive in!

 

Communication is Key

Open and honest communication is the cornerstone of a successful roommate relationship. Establish a regular time to discuss any concerns, responsibilities, or plans related to the living space. This ensures that everyone's needs and preferences are heard, leading to better understanding and cooperation.

 

Set Clear Boundaries

Defining boundaries from the beginning can prevent misunderstandings later on. Discuss personal space, shared chores, and quiet hours. Respect each other's privacy and agree on rules for guests and parties to maintain a comfortable living environment.

 

Divide Chores Fairly

Living with roommates means sharing household responsibilities. Create a chore schedule to evenly distribute tasks like cleaning, taking out the trash, and grocery shopping. Rotating responsibilities ensures that everyone contributes equally to the upkeep of the apartment.

 

Respect Each Other's Sleep Schedules

Sleep schedules can differ among roommates, especially if you have varying work or study routines. Be mindful of noise levels during late hours and early mornings. Invest in noise-canceling headphones if necessary to maintain a peaceful atmosphere.

 

Keep Shared Spaces Tidy

Clutter in common areas can lead to frustration and disagreements. Encourage everyone to clean up after themselves and maintain shared spaces like the kitchen and living room in an orderly manner. Regularly declutter these areas to create a welcoming atmosphere for all.

 

Be Mindful of Each Other's Belongings

Respect each other's belongings and ask permission before using them. Borrowing items without consent can lead to tension and discomfort. Treat each other's possessions with care, just as you would want your belongings to be treated.

 

Celebrate Each Other's Successes

Living with roommates means being part of each other's lives. Celebrate each other's achievements and milestones, whether it's a promotion, a successful exam, or a personal accomplishment. Supporting each other fosters a positive and uplifting living environment.

 

Living with roommates can be a fantastic experience when approached with consideration, open communication, and mutual respect. By implementing these tips for harmonious coexistence, you can create a supportive and enjoyable living environment in your RPM Living apartment

Embrace the opportunity to build lasting connections and make the most of your shared living experience!

Spring Cleaning Checklist For Your Luxury RPM Living Apartment

Kiss those winter blues goodbye as we dive headfirst into spring - and spring cleaning! Check out a few of our tried and true recommendations that are sure to refresh your space and that should definitely be on your spring cleaning checklist this year.

Shampoo carpets & rugs

From snow and salt to dust and grime, winter can be hard on all carpeted surfaces throughout your home, so be sure and give them a good wash as we lead into the cleaner, fresher spring season! Believe us when we say, even if they look clean, they can ALWAYS be cleaner. Thank us later with this one.

Wash curtains

If you’ve never thought about cleaning your curtains before, you’re not alone. As one of the most forgotten items to clean in the majority of homes, your window curtains can easily collect dust and debris without you realizing it, and can even be responsible for aggravating your allergies. While you should always follow the instructions specific to your items, typically a simple wash cycle or steam cleaning is an effective way to refresh your luxury RPM Living apartment.

Deep clean mattresses

A good rule of thumb to follow to keep your home at its freshest is to deep clean your mattress once every season, and spring is no exception! As you replace your winter bedding over to your spring selection, clear off your mattress, give it a 180 flip, and sprinkle in some baking soda. After letting it sit for 20-30 minutes, vacuum up the baking soda, and using a damp sponge and gentle dish soap, generously give your mattress a good wipe down. Always allow your mattress time to air out and dry fully before reapplying your bedding!

Wash outdoor areas

Scrubbing or power washing your deck / patio, washing your driveway, treating your home for any mildew, and washing your outdoor furniture are all prime examples of ways to properly refresh your outdoor space and prepare your home for spring. This is also the perfect time to get ready for any outdoor hosting events you have planned, such as BBQs, pool parties, and more!

Declutter closets

While this is a task that can eat up some time, decluttering your closet in preparation for spring and summer is the perfect way to renew your space, and should definitely be on your spring cleaning checklist. Donating unwanted items and reorganizing your closet will not only enhance the visual appearance of your closet, but will make getting ready and finding your favorite outfits so much easier.

Renter-Friendly Tech Recs For Apartment Homes

Are you looking for some renter-friendly smart home technology recommendations to make your life a little easier? Many often mistake that living in an apartment means limiting your smart-home technology. That isn’t true, and we’ve put together a list of smart-home technology recommendations that you can easily implement in your apartment community today. 

Robot Vacuum

Whether you’re a little messy, a lotta messy, or even if you’re a neat freak, robot vacuums are a lifesaver for day-to-day life, especially in apartments! Our open-concept layouts make it to get your apartment in tip top shape, without you having to lift a finger. Most of our apartment homes do not have stairs, so don’t worry about it accidentally taking a tumble. What else could you ask for? Bonus: this one even has a mop feature for all your hard floors. 

Bluetooth Speaker

If you’re cleaning, working, studying, or anywhere in between, a wireless speaker is a great way to set your mood - no matter what mood it is. This bluetooth speaker from Ikea may look and sound like it’s going to cost you an arm and a leg, but really, it’s only $79.99.

Smart Plugs

Feeling like your energy bill is a little higher than it should be? Invest in a smart plug! These little gadgets will allow you to check via WiFi just how much energy any of your appliances or other electronic devices are pulling, and they can be remotely turned off and on. That’s right - you can turn your coffee pot on without even getting out of bed in the morning. Sounds too good to be true? Wait until you see how affordable it is.

Smart Lock

Kiss the keys goodbye, and say hello to your new best friend. Ever been in a hurry out the door and couldn’t remember if you locked it on your way out? No problem, because with a smart lock, you can lock or unlock your door right from your phone. The best part? It fits right onto your deadbolt, so you can easily remove it at any time, or at move-out (even though we want you to stay with us forever!).

Digital Assistant

This may seem too easy, but we mean it when we say that EVERYONE at our RPM Living apartment communities should have one of these bad boys. Whether you need an answer to a question, set a timer or reminder, or even control your smart locks or plugs (cool, right?) an Amazon Echo or a Google Home is a great way to make apartment life more efficient without breaking the bank or taking up space.

 

With so much helpful tech available in today’s world, we can’t wait to hear what your favorite tools are for your home, too! Let us know in the comments or on our social media.
