Holiday Gift Ideas for Your Student – 2021 (Plus nearly 100 more!)

It’s that time of year again. We’re all hoping that the holidays will be at least a little more normal this year. We’re thinking about family and friends and we’re thinking about gifts. Because of shipping issues, the suggestion this year is that if you’re ordering gifts online, do it early.  So it’s not too early to put on your thinking cap!

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. There’s so much to choose from!

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 fifteen new suggestions for 2021 to add to our earlier suggestions.  Don’t stop here! Check out our Gift Suggestions tab for over 100 additional suggestions!  We guarantee you’ll find 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! Let’s make this a community project!

Note: We think these are great gift ideas for your student no matter where you purchase them.  If you use our links, College Parent Central receives a small percentage of your purchase price. This does not change the cost to you.  We think it’s only fair to let you know that.

Blue Light Blocking Glasses

Blue light blocking glasses are specially designed to help reflect the harmful blue light emitted from the screens of all digital devices ranging from Computers, Tablets, TVs, Cell Phones & Video games.

Ring Light with Stand and Phone Holder

If your student spends time on Zoom or making videos of any kind (think Youtube and TikTok) this will help give them that professional look.

Travel Size Photo Printer

Your student can instantly print picture from their phone to keep or trade. Sometimes, it’s nice to be able to hold something in your hand!

Extra Long Charging Cables

Sometimes you need to be able to charge your devices from a distance.

Sticky Note and Page Marker Bundle

Your student will be ready to study anything with this collection of notes and markers!

Airpod Case Cover

Your student might like to inject a little more personality into their airpod case – and set it apart from others.

Cold Brew Iced Coffee Maker

It doesn’t matter how cold the weather, students love their iced coffee! This will let them make their own whenever they want it.

USB Powered Desk Fan

It’s difficult (sometimes impossible) to control the temperature in dorm rooms. Often they’re too warm (even in winter) and that makes it hard to stay awake to study! This small, personal fan can help solve that problem.

Travel Toiletry Bag

With travel beginning to pick up, your student can use this flexible hanging bag to pack a lot.

Handheld Milk Frother

Does your student love a good latte or cappucino? Now they can make their own and impress their friends.

Study Definition Mug

OK, this one’s just plain fun – but your student might appreciate the humor.

Shower Steamers

We all need a little pampering every now and then. For those who shower rather than take baths.

Spikeball

Sort of like volleyball, but can be played anywhere by any number of people. For students who want to spend time with friends and get active! Great study break!

ESPN Trivia Game

Sports fan? Let them test their knowledge with their friends!

Portable Ping Pong Set

This set includes paddles, balls, and portable net. Your student and friends can play anywhere. Then pack it into its case and move on.

Note: We think these are great gift ideas for your student no matter where you purchase them.  If you use our links, College Parent Central receives a small percentage of your purchase price. This does not change the cost to you.  We think it’s only fair to let you know that.
