Looking for the best Christmas Gifts for a college student? This guide has been updated for 2020 and has the proven gifts your college student will love to get: gifts to wear, gifts for the dorm, and useful gifts. Tons of easy gift ideas that are sure to please!
Wondering what to get a college student for Christmas? I quizzed my three subject matter experts and did some research of my own to come up with a gift guide that’s been vetted by actual college students.
My son crawled under my weighted blanket on his first night home for the holidays, fell asleep on the sofa and slept through until the morning. I knew then that the blanket would be returning with him to school and it did. This blanket really works for easing anxiety and promoting sleep. Everyone needs one!
Of course, your student might also appreciate a touch of home. These photo clips let your student keep photos of their favorite memories in front of them all the time and the unit easily attaches with command strips.
Sure a smartphone takes great pictures but if your college student wants to take their photography game up a notch, this mirrorless camera is a lightweight alternative to a DSLR and takes great 4K video.
Record players are making a strong comeback these days! This portable version looks like the fun suitcase-style record players all the cool kids used to carry around and the Bluetooth capability means you can even use it as a set of speakers when you want to stream music from your phone.
Your phone needs some extra juice when you're out and about all day and this portable charger has outlets for both iPhones and Android devices. It can charge your iPhone more than 7 times on a single charge, too, so no need to panic because you forgot to charge your charger.
Help your student make that 8 am class each morning with this gentle alarm clock which works by gradually brightening each morning before the alarm clock goes off. You can choose to awake to the sound of birds or the ocean if you'd like and charge your phone overnight.
Give your student a way to find out answers to those sometimes delicate health issues they may face in college without having to ask a parent or get incomplete or erroneous information from a friend or roommate. Dr. Grimes give expert advice of what to do about common college ailments, but even more important, is clear about when getting medical attention is not optional. A must have to keep around the dorm room.
