Student Life: Gifts for university students
If you know someone who is about to head off to university to become a student, you’ll be only too aware that they are going to need a whole load of ‘stuff’ to get themselves started. From pens and pencils to pots and pans the list goes on! Here are a few gifts for university students to start them off.
We think that they would make the perfect parting gift for the student in your life. There is the option to personalise the kits with a student’s name and the university of your choice.
You can also decide to have them filled with student-friendly goodies such as chocolate and hangover essentials! It is definitely worth taking a look at the full range of gift items as there are lots of great ideas to choose from.
Laundry Bags Perfect for Students
This basketball style laundry bag hooks over a bedroom door to entice your loveable student to pick their dirty washing up off of the floor and slam dunk it into the basket. Genius.
We love this ‘Teenage Dirt Bag’ laundry bag! It’s made from 100% cotton, has a drawstring top and a handy hook to hang it up with. It is also available in black. Perfect for your teenage dirt bag!
Remind the student in your life that you are thinking of them every time they make themselves a cup of tea with this personalised mug. Add your location, your student’s location together with the distance in miles between you. There is also an option to add a message or family name to the back of the mug. Happily, this mug is both dishwasher and microwave friendly.
Ice Shot Glasses
For the student who likes to party! This 12 piece set makes frozen shot molds. Just pour water, gelatin or your favourite mixer into the molds and leave in the freezer to set. Cool!
The perfect gift for a university student. A fun way to get them thinking about their five a day. You never know, these delicious handmade white and dark Belgian chocolate shaped veggies might inspire them to try the real thing!
This ‘Shit I’ll Forget’ to do list notepad/desk pad combo is brilliant for the forgetful student. It is made from 100% recycled paper and is A5 in size. It includes 50 sheets and is available in either pink, sand and white or blue.
Polaroid String Lights
These polaroid string lights are a great way to brighten up a student bedroom. The set contains 10 pegs that light up your choice of photos with a warm glow. Requires 2 x AA batteries (not included).
Desk Tidy With Photo
This acrylic pen pot not only keeps a desk clutter free but it also displays any favourite (6x4″) photo to keep you going while you study!
Kettle & Toaster
Just what every student wants. If all else fails they can always make themselves a cup of tea and a slice of toast. We love this rather fetching Swan Polka Dot set. The kettle holds 2 liters and has an automatic cut off and boil dry protection, just in case! Whilst the toaster has defrost and reheat settings with a red LED indicator light.
Gameboy Style Alarm Clock
Ensure that the student in your life won’t ever be late for lectures with this perfect replica Game Boy alarm clock. It even has Super Mario Land alarm tunes which surely would be impossible to sleep through?
A very practical gift for a university student. If you’re going to have to hang your own washing out to dry, do it in style. These colourful clothes horses are just the thing to cheer up washing day! Available in lime, purple, raspberry, red and teal.
One size available in W 62cm (24″) x L 50cm (20″) x 137cm (54″)
This handy fridge locker fridge lock can only be opened with a passcode (combination lock). This means that your student can feel safe in the knowledge that their favourite treats won’t accidentally be eaten by another hungry student! It measures 28.5 cm x 19 cm and is suitable for freezers too.
Provide peace of mind to any student with this Lifelock system that enables you to lock your door securely from the inside. It gives personal privacy, safety, and security without the use of keys or codes to remember. Helpfully it can be fitted and released in seconds.
A gift for a university student that will give you peace of mind whilst they are away from home. When the trigger pin is pulled from these personal alarms they produce a piercing 130 dB emergency call. This will sound continuously for up to 40 – 60 minutes or until the pin is replaced.
