15 Christmas Gift Ideas for a College Student
Buying a gift for a college student can be such a daunting task. Would you buy something useful or related to their schoolwork? Would it be best to buy something they can enjoy on their free time? In case you’re caught up in the confusion, we’ll share 15 gift ideas below $50 which are perfect for a college student.
1. Space organizers
Many college students are struggling with trying to keep organized. Granted, college dorms and apartments can be extremely small so it’s hard to figure out how to best use the limited space. A space organizer that will help declutter the bathroom, kitchen or their study desk would be an ideal gift for Christmas.
2. Customized coffee mug
Send a message to that college student with a personalized coffee mug. You can even include his/her favorite photos that act as a reminder of an unforgettable moment they had. We know life in college can sometimes be lonely so it’s important to have special reminders of people back at home.
3. First aid emergency kit
Most college students don’t have a first aid emergency kit. This is important because it comes with all the necessities such as bandages to deal with minor cuts and scrapes.
4. Portable charger
College students can’t have enough of portable phone chargers. With their busy lifestyle, they have to carry their phones wherever they go so this would be a practical gift for Christmas.
5. A flask
There are some really cool designs of flasks available online that you can gift a college student. You can have the flask personalized with a name or funny message.
6. A humidifier
There are humidifiers that are small enough to fit on the student’s desk or nightstand. This will come in handy during the dry winter months.
7. Fleece blanket
College students love to keep warm in a cozy blanket at night or when doing their studies in the evening. A fleece blanket could just be the perfect gift.
8. Hangover kit
Make your own hangover kit that may include items such as water, ginger ale, antacids and vitamin packs and gift it to that college student.
9. Sandwich maker
College students don’t have much time to make breakfast in the mornings so those grilled cheese sandwiches will really come in handy. A sandwich maker will be a great gift choice this holiday.
If the college student has moved far from their family, this will be the perfect gift to bring a smile to her/his face.
11. Comfy pajamas
If you can get pajamas that are comfy and warm, it would be a nice gift for someone in college. College students often spend long hours studying at night or watching movies and some comfortable pajamas and slippers would come in handy.
12. Support pillow
To prevent neck and back pain when studying on the bed or watching Netflix, a support pillow will really help.
13. Gift card
Think of what the college student would love to do but can’t spend their money on.
14. Smartphone projector
This small device allows one to turn their room or apartment into a movie theatre.
Allows the college student to access textbooks that are available online. It’s the ideal gift for a college student who loves reading.
