Affordable (and Awesome) Gifts for College Students

Finding awesome, trendy, and affordable gifts for college students...

can be a tall order, we know. That’s why Wheatpaste Art Collective has put together some awesome ideas so that you can easily find gifts for college students without fearing the dreaded face of disappointment Christmas morning!

Chalk to-go cup at Urban Outfitters

Coffee may be the only reason that your college student actually makes it to class, so embrace the beans and let ‘em drink up in style. Ceramic to-go coffee mugs are uh-may-zing gifts for college students that A) look rad, B) serve a purpose, and C) generally run less than $20, so consider snagging one (or several) to keep the java flowing and the attendance high!

Rad headphones by URBANEARS

Whether you live in a dorm or apartment, college students are generally squeezed in tighter than sardines, meaning privacy can be tough to come by. Pop on a pair of these suckers and not only can you drown out the world (leaving you free to focus on that pesky paper you’ve been procrastinating on), you’ll turn heads with your impeccable style sense. Available in multiple colors to fit you perfectly.

Leopard Pullover Sweatshirt by Wildfox

This one’s for the ladies out there! We know it can be tough to look your best for your 8 AM lecture, but that’s no reason to rock slippers and PJs every day. This totally fierce sweatshirt screams comfort while maintaining an edge that’ll make your lab partner look twice.

Ron Swanson t-shirt from Etsy seller courtney2kdesign

You may have thought you heard me say I wanted a lot of bacon and eggs, but what I said was: Give me all the bacon and eggs you have.” Never a manlier man has there been since Ron Swanson entered the world through Parks and Recreation. He’s not shy about telling it exactly like it is or giving advice whether it’s requested or not. Still, he has a heart of gold and a mustache that’s hard to top, so this is our top pick for the matriculating manly man in your fam.

Adventure Time Wallet by Poketo x Jolby

College students top the list of People Who Lose Stuff Constantly, including IDs, car keys, room keys, cash, debit cards, etc. As the last awesome-yet-practical gifts for college students idea, we give you the Adventure Time wallet from Poketo, designed by our faves Jolby & Friends.
