As a new academic year approaches, residents of our new apartments in Tulsa, OK may be thinking about the gifts they can give the college students in their lives. Whether you’re looking for a back-to-school gift or planning ahead for a birthday or holiday gift, these options are great picks for nearly any student.
Having a great pair of noise-cancelling headphones isn’t just great for sound quality, it’s also a godsend for students living with roommates or in a noisy hall of other students. It’s also a great perk for those long study sessions in the library. If these noise-cancelling headphones have bluetooth capabilities, even better.
An electric kettle is an extremely versatile tool that’s perfect for students regardless of whether they live on or off-campus, with or without their own kitchen. It makes brewing coffee and tea that much easier, plus it’s perfect for classic no-frills student meals like ramen and mac & cheese.
Laptop Cooling Pad
Students and laptops go hand-in-hand, and that much use can easily cause a laptop to run hot. A laptop cooling pad can help keep your lap comfortable and keep your laptop in better working order long-term, so it’s great for students who are constantly on the computer.
Insulated Water Bottle
Having a high-quality water-bottle can make a big difference to hydration habits, which is great for young students who may not actively think about how much water they drink. Frankly, this is a challenge for many adults too. Pick a water bottle that is sturdy, immune to spills and leaks even when turned upside down in a bag or backpack.
College is a stressful time, and most dorm beds aren’t exactly plush. A weighted blanket can help make students more comfortable and has been shown to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety for some. It can also improve sleep quality, which is a boon for students whose irregular sleep habits and high levels of stress can disrupt their ability to sleep.
