What better way to help college students become the best version of themselves than to give a journal. This note-taking item is flexible and can be used for school notes, as an organizer or as a diary.

Portable Power Charger

Let's face it - modern phone batteries still need improvement. A portable power charger is a practical gift that a college student can definitely use daily.


You can also give them a sturdy yet stylish backpack. With so many things to carry around campus, a comfortable bag would be another practical choice.


Sometimes, students just want to put on their headphones and not talk to people. Headphones can also help them tune out distractions as they work on their projects.

Flash Drive or External Hard Drive

There are so many files to keep and, while cloud storage is quite useful, it's always good to have a lot of places to back up one's important data. A flash drive or external hard drive can help solve this issue.
