Young people who are just heading off to university are at an exciting point in their lives – embarking on the journey towards adulthood and expanding their minds with education.  That said, their cramped living quarters and lack of life experience can make choosing the perfect gift for uni students quite difficult. If you are struggling to decide what to place under the tree for the Uni students in your life, here is a handy list guaranteed to help you this Christmas.

  • Leather bound journals or diaries – Being a student is tough. There are countless notes to take, appointments to keep and assignments to submit on time. A gorgeous leather bound notebook from Moleskines or Aspinal of London is a sophisticated and timeless way for students to keep organised, perfect for young men and women no matter what their personal style.
  • A Stylish Book bag – Backpacks and shoulder bags have made a big comeback in recent fashion trends for both men and women. No longer are backpacks solely the accessory of school aged children; sophisticated bankers, lawyers and sartorially minded fashionistas can all be seen toting Fjallraven, Harris and Herschel bags, most with dedicated laptop and tablet pockets.
  • A loving reminder of home – Uni students often have to travel far from home, to cities across the country (and sometimes even across the planet). A photo gift is a great idea – consider a customised scrapbook, framed family portrait or an engraved 3D photo crystal keyring. Photo keyrings are the perfect way to send your favourite student a reminder of their friends and family.
  • Accessories to spruce up their flat/ dorm room – Space saving dorm room accessories can make the great Christmas gift for a university student, no matter what year they are in. Laundry baskets, organisational baskets, reading lamps, stackable kitchen tools – these practical items are always appreciated.
