You can’t exactly make someone get on top of their life, especially not in college. But some of the best gifts for people buried under studies and seminars and workshops are those that help them better organize it all. There are plenty of great gadgets to help you survive college. A smart notebook, a charging case, even a Bluetooth Coffee Machine. Help them get through the hectic world of further education and they are going to love you forever.
Something that’s just so them
Of course, not everyone has the money to go buying gadgets for people left, right, and center. For a more budget friendly approach, you should consider something that’s a little more personal. Whether it’s heartfelt or just for kicks, something personalized is like a little celebration of the person themselves. With options like the Likenessme custom bobbleheads, you can give them a little mini-them always there to cheer them on while they’re studying. Whatever you decide to personalize for them, it becomes a gift that’s utterly unique from you to them. They’re likely to treasure it for a long time, after.
Show some gratitude
While some people might want a gift that helps them keep a handle on their life, others would very much like an escape from it instead. If your bestie has been a particularly good friend/movie companion/shoulder to cry on, they deserve some gratitude. So, show it to them with a day of pampering. Take them out for lunch, go wherever they want to go, or even consider a spa day with Groupon deals that you can both share together. It’s definitely going to make for an emotional day when you’re both being so friendsy with one-another.
Something with a bit of you
If you’re really stretching the budget tight, then try not to worry about it so much. Your bestie should know your situation and she shouldn’t expect you to bankrupt yourself for her birthday. But that can work in your favor. If she’s not expecting a gift, then you can really blow her away with something handmade. It can be something as simple as a photo display involving some of the hijinks you’ve both got up to. Or you can make a real project out of it and wow her with a collection of soaks, skin creams, and all sorts of luxury tools.
Remember, your college bestie is very likely far away from home if you’re there to celebrate their birthday with them. They might be feeling emotional, themselves, so being there can be a hugely uplifting thing for them. No matter what you get them, that’s going to matter the most.
