Useful Gifts for Girls in University

Christmas is a time for holiday fun and cheer, a time to dig out your favourite Mariah Carey Christmas album and sip on some hot chocolate. Although, it is not the most important part of the holidays, giving and receiving gifts is one of the most fun activities. As a university student, Christmas is the perfect time to request practical and useful items for the school year. If you’re having trouble figuring out what to put on your Christmas wish list, here are ten beneficial gifts every girl in university can ask for this Christmas. 

1. At home coffee brewer

On those days when the coffee budget is low but you need your daily dose of caffeine, this is a perfect gift to have coffee at home. It will surely save you money in coffee shops for the remainder of the school year. 

2. External hard drive

Without a doubt, these are two products every student should invest in.  Imagine you are on the last page of your final paper and you accidentally spill coffee all over your laptop and you lose your files. This even pains me to think about it. The best way to avoid situations like this, is to save files on an external hard drive. 

3. Gym membership 

Every year as a New Year’s resolution you may promise yourself you’ll workout more, so why not ask for a semester gym membership card. It can act as motivation to get the ball rolling!

4. Portable pillows and blankets 

A great way to stay comfortable during late night study sessions at the library is to bring a portable pillow or blanket. It’s like having the comfort of your bed everywhere you go. 

5. Headphones

We all know how useful a reliable pair of headphones can be, especially on long bus and metro rides. And for more practical use, you can even specify that you want wireless headphones.
