100 Gifts for Students

From Functional Laptops to Sanitizing Backpacks

— December 24, 2020 — Life-Stages
This list of 100 gifts for students features everything from tech-infused backpacks to meditative coloring books, offering everything a young person might need to make it through the day. Whether learning virtually or from a classroom, this year has been incredibly hard on students. This list acknowledges some of those hardships, and presents stylish and practical suggestions that should make the new normal a little easier to navigate.

Some standouts from the list include Ban.do's Brighten Up Coloring Book, which offers a temporary escape and distraction for the student in need of a break. Meanwhile, artist Dahee Kim is challenging fashion norms by introducing a hilariously practical school uniform that's equipped with a beanbag, making anywhere a seat for the student. On a more practical note, some brands are designing backpacks with built-in sanitization.
