5 Thoughtful Gift Ideas for Your Roomie

'Tis the season of giving, and who better to show your appreciation to this holiday season than your roommate!  Here are a few gift ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

  1. Homesick Candles! I received this gift from my mother last year for Christmas and it was so thoughtful. This company creates candles that highlights each state’s perfect smells! For example, Washington’s smell description is: ‘Enjoy a perfectly rainy day in Washington with the scent of soft downpours, steeped Earl Grey tea, and mild hints of cedar and patchouli. A touch of maple and vanilla complement a bouquet of rhododendron flower and amber.” This is the perfect gift to give a roommate who may be missing home or is far away from home!

2.   A soft fuzzy blanket! It is starting to very cold here on the GU Campus and sometimes the dorm’s heaters don't work! Help your roommate out by getting a nice blanket from them to stay warm this winter.

3. A cookbook is the perfect gift to give to a roommate this year! Most GU students have access to a kitchen which is so nice to bake or cook a meal once in awhile! Maybe giving a cookbook to your roommate will hint that you wouldn't mind someone making you food once in awhile.

4. A rad backpack! Encourage your roommate to hit the books and get cracking! This Christmas gift would give your roommate the perfect excuse to go to the library and show off their gift! A bonus feature could be waterproof; we all know that GU’s weather is pretty unpredictable.
