Gift Guide: 13 Gifts For Students

Buying gifts for students needn’t be hard – you want things that are useful but fun.

If you’re really stuck – gift food!

We’ve put together more than a few boxes of gifts for students and here’s what we find to be most gratefully received.

13 Gifts For Students:

Tea and Coffee

If they drink coffee (and if they don’t, they probably soon will!) try coffee and a travel mug.

tea and mug gift

If tea is more their thing, a box of chamomile to help them relax or earl grey to enjoy in the morning goes down well.

Again, gift a travel mug as they’ll no doubt be drinking on the run!

A Puzzle

College/university is stressful so don’t underestimate the power of a good puzzle. Brooklyn-based Areaware have created a puzzle that delivers a new take on colour therapy.

The act of putting it together is slow and deliberate, where the colour of each piece is used to locate its proper position.


They aren’t going to spend their limited money on themselves so a gift box full of pampering skin and body care (think face creams, sheet masks and bath products) will be perfect during a relaxing evening in their room.

I’m Kind Of Awesome Journal

You miss them, they miss you, the work is harder than they thought and doubt is starting to creep in. Send them the ‘I’m Kind Of Awesome’ confidence-boosting mini journal which provides the perfect place to record all the ways they’re currently crushing it.

Bluetooth Speaker

The small but mighty Lexon Bluetooth speaker comes with a hands-free micro and a selfie remote.

They can stream their favourite playlist from their smartphone or tablet for up to three hours thanks to its built-in battery that is easily rechargeable via USB-C.

Portable Charger

They probably spend more time outside of their room than in it which means it’s easy for their phone battery to run out of power. A popular gift for student is a potable charger to keep them contactable all day. Whether they pick up the phone or reply to your text is a different matter!

Home comforts might not seem important to them when they first move away but a scent that reminds of them of home (and you) is great for their wellbeing.

Baking Kits

Students plus food equals a win and these bottled baking kits contain all the dry ingredients they need to make delicious muffins, cookies and/or (vegan) brownies. Plus we all know baking is good our mental health.

Travel Mugs

A portable bottle that keeps cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot is a planet and money saver.

An Undated Planner

An undated planner makes a great gift for students as they can start it at the beginning of the academic or calendar year. Advise them to use it to break their lifetime goals down into bite sized steps.


Students can never have too many pens, pencils and notebooks, and we have a great selection of colours to suit their tastes.

Mindfulness Gift Box

While colleges and universities have done much to improve their students’ wellbeing, some kids struggle with the whole experience. Be proactive by encouraging them to call you regularly and gifting items that help them keep on track of their feelings.
