70 Gifts Ideas for Students

From Flask Bracelets to Compact Meal Appliances

— December 23, 2017 — Lifestyle
These gift ideas for students range from luxe velvet backpacks to compact apartment furniture and sleep inducing sprays, yet they all share one commonality of making life easier for the studious individual in one's life.

Being a student means a lot of late nights, so gift options like convenient coffee-brewing tumblers, noise-cancelling nap masks or sleep-improving earbuds are ideal in combating the long hours at the library. Receiving comfy dorm room furniture is always a plus for students, who struggle to personalize their often tiny spaces, making gifts like bean bag seating, a perfect option.

Lastly, those looking to blow off some steam may enjoy unwrapping a portable cocktail drinking game, a compact speaker system or a handcrafted artisan flask.
