College students necessities are surprisingly different from the requirements in virtually any other time in a person’s life.
For that reason, when you’re looking for a great student gift, then you might want to keep college shopping in mind. After all, activities are different, space is limited and things need to be as practical and functional as they are fun and appealing.
Some of the best college supply items that you can give as a gift are often the most surprising things. Consider the following ultimate must haves when it comes to a student gift for the holidays or any other time of the year.
- Portable battery charger – try to find the best charger you can, such as the Mogix 10400mAh Portable Charger. The reason that this is far better than one of those smaller power banks that are as tiny as a lipstick tube is that it is slim, it can fit into virtually any jacket pocket, handbag or backpack pocket, and it will charge cell phones several times, tablets multiple times, and can even charge two devices at once!
- Surge protectors – plug these in at every outlet being used in a dorm room and it could mean the difference between life and death of a computer, smartphone, tablet, or even hair dryer, if the building experiences a power surge.
- Lost and Found Bluetooth tags – even in a place as small as a dorm room, things can go missing very easily. Small items from a tablet to a wallet or a pair of glasses in case can be left under a pile, dropped behind furniture or go missing in a range of other mysterious ways. By syncing up devices to a SecuriTag BlueTooth Alarm System, alarms can be set to go off to make it possible to quickly and easily find misplaced items.
- A streaming video account – not every moment in college can be spent studying! Sometimes, a student just needs to lie in bed and relax with a favorite movie or TV show. With a Netflix or Hulu Plus account, that gets a lot easier.
