  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Chromecast
    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.
