‘Tis the Season! 10 Holiday Gift Ideas for Your College Student – 2018

It’s that time of year again.  Black Friday. Small Business Saturday. Cyber Monday.  We’re thinking about family and friends and we’re thinking about gifts.  If you have a college student, or an about-to-be college student, you may be searching for some ideas for useful or fun gifts.

You know your student best, and can tap into interests and needs, but we’d like to offer some suggestions that may stimulate your imagination. We have ten new suggestions for 2018, but we’ve offered some suggestions in the past.  Don’t stop with this post! Check out our  Resources tab for nearly 100 additional suggestions.  There’s something for everyone there!

Check out our ideas, and then let your own creativity take over!  If you have additional suggestions, share them in the comments!

A little outrageous, but this has to be a lot of fun!

Remember, if these suggestions aren’t enough, go to the Resources tab and find dozens more ideas.  (And don’t forget to let your student know what you’d like as well!)
