Setting up a neat and tidy study desk is an activity that any student loves to do! A desk organiser can definitely help in that regard and makes a great gift for someone returning to education.

This is an alternative item for a study desk. Some people find scents and aromatherapy very useful for concentration and productivity. An essential oil diffuser is surely another great gift idea for a mature student!

5. Echo Dot (Alexa)

You can say something like: “Hey, I got you a personal assistant!”. An echo dot is often overlooked as a student gift. Nevertheless, it might be a useful present for a mature student trying to become more tech savvy.

There will be tough times, returning to education is challenging. However, sometimes the right motivation can change someone’s day! These motivational posters make a great gift for a mature student returning to education.

A more study-related gift here. This handbook is specifically designed to help mature students overcome the challenges of returning to education after a long time off studying.
