The holidays are right around the corner. And, choosing fun and useful gifts for adult college students is just one way to get into the spirit.
Your favorite college student probably relies on technology more than ever this semester and gifting them a new laptop, tablet, or phone case can make studying a bit more fun. These accessories come in a variety of colors and designs to match your recipient’s device and unique style, making them one of the best holiday gifts for adult college students.
Portable Power Bank
Finding an open outlet on campus or while commuting isn’t always easy. A portable power bank allows students to charge phones and other devices from anywhere, which makes it easier to avoid running out of power while taking notes in class or at the gym.
Single Cup Coffee Maker
Some of the best gift ideas for students in trade school or college is anything coffee-related. Going to the local coffee shop every day can add up quickly. And, with social distancing measures in place, your study location just might be closed these days. Gifting your favorite college student a Keurig, along with a fun travel mug and a supply of K-Cups, makes it fast and easy to make coffee at home most days.
This is one of the best Christmas gift ideas for adult college students (and anyone)! Studying on campus can come with distractions, even at the library. If the college student in your life learns best without conversations or the radio stations that are often played in public, a pair of noise-canceling headphones can help create an ideal study space.
Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Most portable speakers are sleek, colorful, and can be connected to any device. Instead of relying on the capabilities of laptops or phones that aren’t built to fill a large space or trying to track down an old boom box, these small and versatile speakers are the perfect solution for listening at home or any social event that needs music.
Looking for gift ideas for adult college students that aren’t tech-related? Try comfortable loungewear! Not every morning is conducive to a perfectly-planned outfit, especially if your college student is taking online classes. Adding a high-quality pair of lounge pants or a cozy fleece to his or her go-to wardrobe can make getting out the door on a hectic morning or studying at home more comfortable.
Your college student’s basic backpack from high school may not cut it when it comes to hauling books, tech, coffee mugs, and water bottles from class to home and then to work. High-quality modern backpacks come with padded pockets for laptops and tablets, multiple pockets to make organization easier, and even built-in chargers, locks, or other bonuses in sleek, versatile styles that transition seamlessly from class to the gym or workplace. That’s what makes modern backpacks one of the best gift ideas for adult college students!
What started as one affordable Netflix subscription has quickly turned into a plethora of streaming services available that may make it challenging for your college student to watch all their favorite shows at a reasonable price. Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, and other major streaming services offer gift cards and annual gift subscriptions to fit one more subscription into your student’s budget.
From Reese’s peanut butter trees to peppermint, sugar cookie, or hot chocolate flavored M&M’s, holiday goodies are on every student’s wish list. Filling a mug or gift box with his or her favorite treats creates the perfect way to indulge after a long week of finals.
Amazon Gift Card
If none of these ideas match the needs or interests of your recipient, you can’t go wrong with an Amazon gift card. This is always one of the easiest adult college student stocking stuffer ideas. This option makes it easy for them to decide exactly what they need to explore a new hobby or get ready for the spring semester.
