The gift-receiving aspect of the holiday season is definitely more important to kids than adults, but that doesn’t mean newly-minted adults should be left off this year’s gift list. College students work hard most of the semester (aside from a few missed assignments here and there). And making it to the holiday 2017 season means they've finished all their final exams and are another semester closer to graduation — and doesn't your favorite college student deserve a gift about it?
As you get older, gifts become more and more practical. And there’s nothing wrong with that. 1,000 thread count queen-size bed sheets? Yes, please. But practical doesn’t have to mean boring and basic. Practical gifts make life easier for the recipient, and the best gifts also reflect the recipient’s unique needs and personality. The gift ideas in this guide will show the college student in your life that you see them working hard to get that degree and even though it’s not easy, you know they can do it.
Isn’t that the boost everyone needs while pursuing their undergraduate degree? Ahead, you’ll find gifts for college students that will cement your cool sister/aunt/mentor status. And if you find more than one gift that is perfect for someone you know, consider sending it in a care package throughout the year. Speaking from past experience, college students love care packages.
