Not sure what to buy your friends this holiday season? Don’t worry, I got you covered. I know it’s difficult to think of a different gift every year, for every person in your life. And especially as a student, you don’t really have the money to splurge on gifts for your loved ones.
However, there are a few items every student must-own and they’re quite affordable. With these gifts, your friends will be lining up to thank you for giving them something actually useful.
During those long study sessions in the library, you obviously need to stay hydrated. With the Dopper water flask, you don’t need to worry about buying another plastic water bottle. Doppers are available in a wide variety of colors and more importantly, they’re made out of reusable materials. A great and suitable gift for your eco-friendly friend!
Dopper Original €12,50
A planner is essential to every student’s life. As the new year approaches, Moleskine has released its annual planner. Moleskine is famous for its light-weight paper, simple and organized layout, and its ease of use. In other words, perfect for your friend who is always missing out on important deadlines.
You know those busy times when you’re out all day, and slowly but surely your phone battery starts running out. You didn’t bring a charger, and there isn’t any wall socket nearby anyway. Or when you’re going out at night, and your phone dies the very moment you try to call an Uber or check the night bus schedule. Yes, we’ve all been there. But with a lightweight portable charger around, you’ll always be prepared and never find yourself in these situations again.
ISY IAP Powerbank €12,99
Cooking can be a huge chore, especially when you need to do it every day: to think of new recipes, and to execute them correctly is a gigantic challenge for some. As a student, it’s hard to find the time or the patience. Thus, a cookbook makes a nice gift for every occasion.
The Student Cookbook €13,99
