100 Gifts for College Kids

From Novelty Pizza Lighting to Mobile Workstation Bags

— December 23, 2017 — Lifestyle
From novelty pizza lighting to mobile workstation bags, these gifts for college kids are perfect for students who work hard, and play hard.

To help students get through a busy semester, give them a gift that will allow them to ace every test and assignment that comes their way. To tune out dorm hall distractions, give them a pair of noise-cancelling headphones such as the Beoplay E4 earbuds. To help them cart their books from home to the library, opt for a compartmentalized backpack such as the latest design by Moovy.

Of course, there is more to school than just studying, which is why these gifts for college kids also include some more fun options. For the student who needs to unwind, why not opt for a comfy chair such as the new the Casper Lounger, or a mini beer pong set that's easy to transport.
