Ten Gifts Under $25 For College Students
Coming up with gift ideas for college aged young adults can be a tough task. When my son was young his letter to Santa was literally pages long. But as he’s gotten older the number of requests has shrunk, although the price tag has gone up. If you’re having the same difficulty, I thought long and hard and came up with a list of 10 perfect gift ideas for college aged young adults, all that could be purchased for around $25 or less.
After living on their own for awhile, young adults should have the necessities. But they may still be missing some of the comforts of home such as a waffle maker, popcorn popper, toaster or a blender.
Eventually a young adult will need to fix, tighten, or assemble something. Giving tools as a gift ensures they will have the right tools on hand when the time of need arises.
Rolls Of Quarters
Many young adults new to apartment living may need quarters for doing laundry. It’s usually a low priority item they try to squeeze in between other activities. Having extra rolls of quarters on hand gives them one less obstacle to washing those sheets this year.
Meal Delivery Gift Card
Food delivery isn’t just for pizza anymore. A gift card to a food delivery service like Grubhub or DoorDash allows a student to select from a variety of locally participating restaurants and have food delivered right to their door.
Extra Long Charging Cable
Outlets are never as close as you’d like them to be. Whether it’s charging in a vehicle, or on your nightstand an extra long charging cable makes sure their mobile device stays charged. So they can call you, right?
Pocket Juice Battery Pack
For those rare times no outlet is available, a mobile batter pack will keep your student’s mobile device charged and active.
Those that live in colder climates find their cars covered in snow, ice or both at times during the winter months. A good ice scraper and snow brush is a necessity.
A scented candle not only smells good, but creates a homey feeling that everyone enjoys.
Inexpensive games like party packs from JackBox creates hours of fun entertainment for both small and large gatherings.
Magnetic Phone Mount
I normally advise my son to put his mobile phone in the center console while driving, but there are times it’s used as a GPS to find a never been to before destination. For that function, a magnetic phone mount can make it easier to follow the directions being given.
