Top Holiday Gifts for Friends This Season (WashU Edition)

Whether you are stuck on what to get your Secret Santa person or you just want to show your friends some love, all of these gifts are great for friends this holiday season!

1. Ugly Christmas Sweater

Who doesn’t love an ugly Christmas sweater? Even better, this one is not too ugly and they are super comfy! This sweatshirt is a great gift for any WashU student.

2. Jilly’s Cupcakes or Vincent Van Doughnut

Really, any type of of food is a good gift… but these two places have delicious sweets that are great for the cold weather. Show your friend how much you care with a ½ pound sized cupcake from Jilly’s or a crazy flavored donut from Vincent Van Doughnut.

3. WashU Blanket

With the weather getting colder, who would not want to receive a warm and fuzzy blanket? The campus bookstore has a few options and they are definitely something you'd want on your bed.

4. Gift cards

If you have a friend who is picky and hard to shop for, gift cards are always a good choice. Get your friend a gift card to their favorite restaurant or store nearby. Some suggestions: Chipotle, Pastaria, Seoul Taco, Salt & Smoke.

5. Concert Tickets

And last but not least… if you are feeling like a super generous friend, you can get your friend(s) tickets to a concert or show nearby: The Pageant, Scottrade Center, etc. And well, lucky for everyone that has now joined the Justin Bieber Bandwagon, JBiebs is coming to St. Louis on April 19th. So, if you want to be the best friend ever, this is a great idea.
