Best Christmas and New Year gifts for college students

Best Christmas and New Year gifts for college students-1

How do you feel about all the upcoming holidays? If you are as nervous as most of the people, rushing to find last-minute presents that would look decent, you’ve come to a right place to look for answers. No matter who you are, a student who is seeking for something special to give to their friends or a thoughtful parent, who wants to keep pace with the times and make a present remarkable, you all will find something in our ideas list.

Perfect Book

Yeah, we start with a distinct and probably standard solution. Still, with a right hint and knowledge, you can choose ideal books for the most appreciated people. Should you select this type of gift, you need to know a person as you know yourself. What is that particular person interested in? Science, self-development, fiction? What kind of science, self-development programmes/ directions, which fiction? It is essential to know also what did that person already get in the library and what is planned only. You can always ask, but this will kinda reveal your plan. So, at the end of the day, this kind of gift is very specific and suitable only in case you are sure your friend/ child needs the book and would love it. If you are sure about it, a perfect book sounds like a great option.

Electronic Gadgets

We all live in the same world, where technologies got like almost in every single space we have in life. Thus, electronic devices are always an excellent way to go, especially when you know which of the person already owns and which of them s/he lacks. It doesn’t have to be something pricey, like a laptop or iPhone. Try a USB-powered mini-fridge that holds one 330ml can (practical when in the middle of an intense essay-writing session?) or try it all fun and go with a giant keyboard (à la Tom Hanks in Big). If you are a parent and want to surprise your child with something practical and needed, you may choose among e-readers, tablets, and smartphones. Loads of shops offer Christmas discounts. Thus you won’t even need to pay a full price.

This appears to be a good idea for students, who usually live alone in dorms and halls far away from their homes. You can easily help to make their shared rooms more comfortable. The only information you can need is how big is the place and what a person generally likes so that you will choose something useful and pleasant. In general, the best way to go would be buying something small and handy, so it won’t be a bother when moving out. Among the first choices, we’d list mugs, plates, candles, removable over-door hooks, corkboards or magnetic cards. Those things are often used by thousands of people, so if you can’t think of something more specific, those neutral gifts will suit anybody. Christmas time is also perfect to look for those tiny things, as malls and shops are practically filled up with them.


You think of that one friend who is about to miss all the Christmas and New Year fun because of the assignments unfinished? We all have friends who always struggle with writing essays, literature reviews, personal statements and other student’s studying ‘treats.’ Well, good news! There is something you can do to help that person out and appear with the most relevant gift a student can dream of, holidays free from studying! StudentShare Team has opened an exclusive option this year. From now on you can buy your buddy an essay (or few of them), so you both will be able to enjoy holidays together, throw perfect parties and have fun with no studying to worry about.

Fashion, jewelry, and other stuff

Those gifts are always welcomed by students, primarily because of their tight budget. Most sure you know some people who feel like not being able to treat themselves much. So, here is your chance to become a Christmas hero. Look for some small fancy stuff your friends will definitely like. Make sure; those gifts are personalized and well-chosen. This is not only about jewelry and expensive closing. It can also be something people can use inside the house, while hidden from all of the worlds. Two top choices among students are the blanket (blanket with sleeves) or a pair of heated slippers. Both of them are perfect for cold winter time and will also warm up people’s hearts.

DIY presents

If you are on a budget or want to be pretty original, you can go along with this option. It is always a pleasant surprise when somebody spends time on making a custom gift for you. This year you can be the one who surprises their family and friends with those tiny pleasant things. You can quickly compile a mix of songs or top TV series on a CD, bake Christmas cookies or, with enough talent, paint portraits of your closest friends. There are plenty of videos on YouTube you can watch to boost your imagination in that direction. Actually, this type of gift will kill two birds with one stone. First of all, you will get perfect custom gifts for dearest people. And also, while creating them, you will definitely get great Christmas mood for your holidays, if you did not get it before.

Last thoughts

Choosing the best presents for your friends and family might be an exhausting task to perform. You need to consider what other people need, calculate your budget, run through the whole city in the insane rat race. But isn’t it something we all enjoy? This pre-holiday madness is somehow charming, for we are sure that afterward, we will get a fantastic reward, a peaceful time with people we love. It actually never matters much what you choose as a present. The main thing is that it comes from the bottom of your heart.

We at StudentShare wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May it all be great!
