It’s that time of the year, the struggle to find gift ideas is back! In this post you will find some great student gift ideas for Christmas and New Year.

Sometimes students cannot even get back home for the festive period. This makes it even harder to find a nice Christmas present to send to them.

However, there are two things you can consider for that; let’s have a quick look at those before going through our list:

  • Family: when you think about Christmas, you think about spending time with family. Even if that is not possible, gift ideas in this case would involve something they can share with their friends/flatmates to have a great time together; or with family when possible.
  • Warm & Cozy: another thing that comes up when thinking about Christmas, are those cold nights spent relaxing at home. Again, you might want to recreate that atmosphere! In this case gift ideas can be a bit more “individually focused”.
