100 Gifts for the College Student

From Wine Bottle Cups to Plush Social Media Decor

— December 14, 2014 — Fashion
Finding gifts for the college student in your life might make you feel nostalgic if your undergrad days are behind you.

College is a time of experimentation. Some of these "experiments" won't turn out the way you planned (such as the time you mixed jager bombs and tequila shots. Not a winning combination, to say the least). Actually, I'd say almost half of them won't turn out the way you planned, but that doesn't mean they weren't a hell of a lot of fun. Most importantly, college is a time to figure out who you are, and if you need to mix jager bombs and tequila shots seven times to figure out that they're really not for you, so be it.

This Christmas, gift the college student with something they'll find useful to their personal growth and self-actualization: dual-purposes drinking glasses, beer bong attachments, hangover prevention brews.
