Gifts For College Students
College students always have or need a variety of gadgets. But what they don’t always have is a way to protect those gadgets from the bumps that happen along the way. For that reason, they need a gift like a laptop bag.
With all of the important college work that’s stored on their laptop, not to mention all of their online social needs, a laptop will help protect their equipment and keep things organized, too. The bags come in plain colors for guys or girls as well as flower adorned or specially designed ones.
To help them stay awake, coffee gift cards to treat them to their favorite coffeehouse is a gift all students want. Plus, some coffee shops also have delicious treats to go along with the brew.
Single cup coffee brewers make fantastic holiday gifts for college students – especially those who live on a tight budget. You can get a gift basket with a coffeemaker and single cup coffee grounds that they’ll appreciate.
Bed linens such as sheets, pillow cases and extra blankets will help a college student get a good night’s rest when he or she does manage to make it to bed at a decent hour. You can get sheets decorated with the logos or mascots of his college, too.
Listening to music in their portable music device is a favorite hobby of college students – plus, students use earphones to block out the sound of their roommate when they’re trying to sleep or study.
If you’ve looked at the cost of earphones, some of them can be high priced. But the higher priced ones are always the best and last longer. So pick up a pair of earphones for his music or buy him a new music device if he needs one.
Something that college students battle, especially first year students, is homesickness. Corkboards for pinning up momentos from home such as photos, notes or funny cartoons will help make the dorm room homey and a little less lonely.
A nice desk lamp or an ergonomic desk chair is something that will always come in handy. A personal caddy tote that can hold shampoo, soap and other shower essentials can make college life a lot more organized with everything having a place.
If you know a college student who has gone off to school far from home, then you might consider sending them a gift basket that includes all of their local hometown favorites, or even a few items you know they can’t splurge on while going to school.
