Either you’re a college student or not, let’s say you’re not a college student and are looking for a list of ideas on what exactly to get your relative or friend who is a student.
Getting a perfect gift for a student entails you getting something that is worthy of the tight scholar’s schedule, something that can fit in properly in the tiny dorm room, something that will bring a lot of appreciation, something that will worth the stress of taking back to school and won’t end up at the corner of the room and not used, something that won’t also be a devastating loss if it eventually gets missing.
Getting a gift with these characteristics means you’re looking to make a difference with a gift or gifts for your college student. Getting your college student a thoughtful gift can really make a difference in the quality of their life in college, especially when you get them something they tend to use frequently but can’t afford.
The list below in no order is an amazing starting point for any person that wants to show love to his or her college student.
If there’s one thing that is needed and will be highly appreciated by a college student, it’s a good wireless headphone. This can be used at the library, at the gym, commuting to internships and class. With great sounds and long-lasting batteries, this pair can be really helpful for preventing them from distractions caused by noise or building focus on a particular thing.
Amongst a variety of backs used by students, a backpack is the most versatile of them all. Either going or coming for class, a job or internship, no student will love to carry a banged-up Jansport into the classroom. A backpack will keep their laptop safe, give the student a professional look and is also transportation-friendly.
A SMART ALARM CLOCK
Attending college entails getting up really early and motivated to attend early morning class at most times after a very stressful late night class the previous day. This is an amazing option for a sound sleeper as an alarm clock will make sure he or she doesn’t sleep through a class. Sometimes it skips the mind of the student to set alarm for the next time of select AM in place of PM. This is why a smart clock is needed, as it gives you the option to set class ahead of time.
WHITE NOISE MACHINE
It’s possible to get A’s from proper sleep and this can be done through proper studying. Are you having a problem with studying or sleeping due to a noisy neighbor? Or a gorilla-like snoring roommate? The white noise machine is the best gift to give to a student with these challenges. It keeps the student focused by proving him or her with a consistent audio backdrop even in a noisy environment.
Not only does it help calm down noise, but it also helps a stressed student get sound sleep. The white noise machine makes it easier to sleep in a raucous frat house and be peaceful.
A serious student will definitely love this as a gift. Take it into consideration.
IPAD FOR NETFLIX BINGING AND NOTE TAKING
At times, carrying your laptop everywhere and every time is really tiring. At some other times, the student might already have a TV in their house or might not even have space in their room for it. The best idea is getting something that is travel-friendly and also large enough for watching your favorite movie or taking notes in class.
A pile of textbooks to read and then a lot of essays to be written! There is nobody that won’t be in need of caffeine to handle all this. Having to write and read for four years is one main reason to make coffee as essential as a paper and a pen. Luckily, your college student has you to provide this essential piece as a gift.
DRONE FOR BEGINNERS
Of late, drones are now becoming more useful and even affordable and a student needs this piece. Imagine taking epic sky shot with college friends and having fun after a stressful day in school. All that is required to make a day turn from bad to amazing is a drone copter and to top it all up, one that is armed with a high-quality camera is perfect. The drone for beginners brings to its user all kind of happiness and fun and might even get them a chance to feature on the news. What other more inspirational present could your tech nerd need.
DORM MINI FRIDGE
One of the things that weigh the mind of most students when going off to college is the thought of how to manage or monitor their perishables. The chances of them having a lot of fruits, dairy products that could easily get spoilt if left either in the wrong hands or not properly taken care of is really high. Think of how annoying it is to waste all this and get your student a mini fridge for school.
You have to admit that after a spaceship, a laptop is the next or better still mother of gifts for a student. Unlike having a spaceship, handling a laptop is really easy as they all learn how to do this even at a tender age. A laptop is a really indispensable piece as students need to write papers, make research and then make visual designs almost all the times. Every student will give you a sincere wholehearted thank you for a gift as this.
