It’s almost summer, but many students will be making up for lost time and studying over the break. And students with birthdays or other occasions to celebrate in spring will appreciate your thinking ahead if they are going back to school in the fall. These eight great gift ideas will work for students who have decided to stick with remote learning, as well as those who are going back in person.
In-person or remote, your student needs to be online with a reliable connection and decent speeds. Taking care of this vital expense for your student eliminates a bill for them and lets them study, watch movies, participate in social media, and have Zoom calls and meetings stress-free.

A Media Streamer
Students at University probably can’t afford cable bills, and most of the good stuff is streaming now, anyway. Get your student a Roku or an Amazon Fire Stick so they can keep up with their favorite shows on their favorite streaming service.
Noise Cancelling Headphones
If your student lives in a noisy dorm with roommates, they need noise-cancelling headphones to study effectively. The same thing is true if they live off-campus with roommates or at home with siblings, or even just mom and/or dad. These are a must-have for buckling down in a study session.
Nearly every student needs to be caffeinated to work effectively. Consider a subscription coffee service for your student so they never run out.
A Weighted Blanket
Being a student is stressful, especially during times like finals week. Help your student manage their anxiety and get the best sleep possible with a comforting and warm weighted blanket. Even when sleep is scarce, this soothing accessory will help your student feel rested.
Your student probably doesn’t have a closet full of professional clothes, but they will face interviews and internships and need a professional look. A good blazer can sharpen up many outfits and is a must-have online and in person.
Amazon Prime Membership
The world of online shopping became essential over the pandemic, and it is here to stay. Free two-day shipping can be a lifesaver for a busy student, and they will get Prime Video into the bargain.
Even if your student is studying from home, there will be times when they will run out of battery on their phone when they are out and about or simply need to charge their phone more quickly than a standard wall outlet. A fast-charging, reliable battery pack is a must-have.
