Need a gift idea for your UNT college kid? The holidays are approaching fast and it can be a challenge finding the right gift for a college student. We’ve gathered the best of the best items to give (and get) this holiday season. This gift guide include ideas for all majors and classifications.
- MacBook from the UNT Mainframe
This may be a gift to ask for from big wigs in your life, but if you buy your macbook at the Mainframe (UNT’s campus Apple store) you can save up to $200! Every student needs a good laptop to study with, and the Mainframe will supply you with one of the best.
- New Bag
A messenger bag makes a great and practical gift that can transition past graduation. New school supplies can put that extra spring in your college students step.
- Crock Pot
A slower cooker is not only permitted by UNT Housing, but there are tons of crock-pot recipes on Pinterest.
- A planner and pretty pens
In a world going more and more digital, sometimes, the analog way and the tactical sensation of pen to paper works best.
A Chromecast is an easy way to make any HDMI-enabled TV or monitor into a smart TV. Cast things from your phone, tablet, or TV.
- Cards Against Humanity
This game is a great way to help students unplug and socialize. It’s an easy game to pick up, has high replay value, and is popular across most college-aged crowds.
- Flex Dollars
Help eliminate hanger with a few extra dollars ear marked for food.
- Ramen Noodle Cookbook
There are many ways to turn that packet into a gourmet treat! This book makes a great read for college students, the budget conscious, or anybody with Top Chef aspirations.
- Bluetooth Speaker
These are basically a portable party. Think the 80s and 90s boombox, but with the ability to comfortably fit them in your backpack and some even small enough to fit in your back pocket.
- Subscription Boxes (DollarShave Club, Birch Box, Ipsy)
You’re surprised what you can get month subscriptions to; razorblades, beauty products, comic books, clothes, you name it.
- Digital Subscription (DropBox, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Spotify, Apple Music, Evernote, XBox Live/PlayStation Plus, Pandora)
Pick up the check on something your college student something already likes.
