You have to admit: after a spaceship, this really is the mother of all gifts. And unlike the spaceship, they’ll know how to use a laptop. From paper writing to research to visual design, a laptop is an indispensable piece of equipment that will get constant use. If they don’t give you a sincere, wholehearted thank you for this, you have strict permission to never talk to them again.
The pour-over promises excellent, rich taste and robust aroma while maintaining the natural oils of the ground Coffee. For the perfect cup of Coffee, simply fill the cone-shaped filter with freshly ground Coffee and pour a small amount of heated water over them until soaked. Slowly pour the remaining hot water into the filter. Coffee will drip into the mouth-blown, borosilicate double wall glass carafe and, in 3-4 minutes, will be ready to serve. Remove the filter from the carafe before serving and enjoy!

As you get older, gifts become more and more practical. And there’s nothing wrong with that. 1,000 thread count queen-size bed sheets? Yes, please. But practical doesn’t have to mean boring and basic. Practical gifts make life easier for the recipient, and the best gifts also reflect the recipient’s unique needs and personality. The gift ideas in this guide will show the college student in your life that you see them working hard to get that degree and even though it’s not easy, you know they can do it.
Some tout college as being the best four years of your life. If you think of the good times, college surrounds you with incredible friends, drags you to incredible parties, and isn’t quite as full of “real life” responsibilities yet.  But on the flipside, college is also jam-packed with exams, tests, student loans, and questionable living conditions.
I often give homemade gifts for Christmas. I make homemade biscotti- almond or chocolate dried cherry and also include homemade hot cocoa mix or Russian tea mix. I have made homemade butterscotch and hot fudge sauce and given them in nice mason jars as gifts. Very cheap to do- buy butter, sugar and cream at Aldi’s. Everyone raves. I have also given wonderful scented soap that I carry home from Florida every year. I have also made Lebkuchen and strudel for gifts. My kids always get lip balm, a toothbrush and a movie pass in their stockings’ – it is a Chrismas tradition. I also go to resale shops and find really neat cookbooks for my daughter. They aren’t high priced and I am recycling them to another cook. I shopped at Sahalie last Christmas and got my DD and DDIL beautiful gloves for ten dollars each- free shipping and no tax!I like to give something that can be used and not end up on the table at the garage sale in a few years.

Speaking of wedding registries, a set of matching flatware would be nice so that they can retire (or maybe even return) the dining hall forks and knives they may have stolen over the years. Senior writer Lauren Levy fell into a rabbit hole of stylish flatware while putting together her wedding registry and “flirted with the idea of Hay’s Everyday Silverware,” which she calls “basic and standard, but also have their own distinct shape, feel, and style.”

2. Shadow box. Many craft and frame stores offer "shadow boxes": a box that has one side made of glass (made to look like a frame) that you can hang on a wall. Create a special one tailored just for your graduate—with mementos, college insignia, and even sports paraphernalia, if appropriate. As an added bonus, shadow boxes work well in an office or in your graduate's new apartment.
While you may have horrifying memories of your high school peers over-spraying Axe body spray, Axe has some surprisingly suave scents in their newest line. The brand’s new deodororizer/fragrance blend has a surprisingly mature scent, with this daily fragrance opening with hints of amber, vetiver and cinnamon. It’s perfect for the guy who is ready to smell like a gentleman, but not ready to make the price commitment of a more high-end cologne.
We got my brother a water bottle, and he was so excited! HydroFlask is a popular brand, but it’s pricey! We LOVE the Simple Modern brand of water bottle. It keeps the water really cold (and your ice sticks around for a long time), but they are half the price. I have the 64-ounce bottle, but there are different ones in a variety of sizes. The HydroFlask lids do fit on them. I bought one of the HydroFlask straw lids, because I prefer that for drinking out of my bottle.
This is THE classic book for college students that covers any situation they may find themselves in during their four years of school. Excellent for both college guys and girls, we trust author Harlan Cohen to guide your student in the right direction. Now in it’s 7th edition, this is an excellent gift for both seniors and those already in college.
They will make lots of friends in college, and some of them will be grimy as hell. Their roommates’ friends will be even worse. And their roommates will possibly be worse still. This handheld vacuum not only leaves everything it touches spotless, it eliminates most of the things you don’t want to catch while sitting on the couch or walking across the bathroom floor.
