Have you found yourself a guy not ready to step into the mature world of cologne? Then a video game is perfect for him. But have you really payed any attention to what he’s playing? Saint Joseph University senior suggests getting Call of Duty Black Ops 2 or one of the Fifas. Not only will this make his day, but it will give you the perfect chance for some space. Want to have a girls’ night? Just remind him that he’s so close to that next level up, and you can say goodbye to clingly texts.
This thing is pretty cool. Only real comments are its a bit akward to hold (and probably use) as a Hammer. Also the knife fitting which is arguably the one that should be most secure/sturdy is poorly placed in my opinion as it sits on the top of most of the other fittings somewhat exposed. Also there doesn't seem to be a great way to extend the corkscrew (you have to catch it by the edge of the sharp tip and pull it out carefully so as to not poke yourself.
Really excited to get started. I just found Christmas gifts for my twins teacher and their classmates. I have a question though anyone know of a craft to hold a Christmas ornament the kids are making in class they are glass bulbs so my kids are responsible for the individual packaging for them I need 29 by Wednesday. Please help any suggestions :-)
A few months ago, commuting meant crossing the quad. Now, commuting means walking to the train station and taking a 45-minute ride across state lines. She’s really going to need her daily jolt of caffeine. Ensure she’s fully energized by the time she sits down at her cubicle with this portable espresso maker. A removable top doubles as a cup for maximum enjoyment enroute.
If your student is in need of a new laptop, this would be a great gesture. The HP 15  Notebook PC is a great option. It comes with Windows 10 Home, high-definition display, AMD Radeon R5 graphics, HP TrueVision HD Camera, DTS Studio sound and much more. Best of all, HP Has partnered with QVC to offer two exclusive colors; minty green and soft lilac, and will feature this laptop at the lowest price of the season on Saturday, November 26th.

Something every student needs from time to time, particularly if they live in an apartment instead of the dorm, is a way to assemble, repair, tighten, hammer, measure, hang, and just generally handle many daily tasks.  Your student could buy tools as he needs them, but that can lead to frustration and delay.  A better way is to have a personal tool kit, like the Stanley 65-Piece Homeowner’s Tool Kit with Screwdriver Set and MaxSteel Adjustable Wrench with all the tools he needs to handle most common tasks like tightening screws, measuring tight spaces, repairing a bicycle, hanging pictures, assembling furniture, handling DIY projects, and much more.  Your student gets one 13-ounce hammer, one 16-foot tape rule, one 18mm snap-off knife, one torpedo level, one long nose and one slip joint pliers, one Phillips screwdriver, one standard tip screwdriver, eight SAE and eight metric hex keys, one 1/4-inch round-head ratchet, eight SAE 1/4-inch sockets, one 1/4-inch spinner handle, one 1/4-inch bit holder, and 30 bits in addition to a 10-piece fluted screwdriver set and a handy 6-inch MaxSteel adjustable wrench.  All of the tools except the additional screwdriver set and the MaxSteel wrench come neatly packed in their own tough, blow-molded plastic case for easy transport to any task.  Tools come with a limited lifetime warranty so you know they’ll last.  Give a gift they will probably use almost every day, not just at college, but for a lifetime.
Go to Whole Foods, or whatever vaguely chichi market you have in your town, and loiter in the wine section. Look a little confused. It won’t be long before a concerned person wearing an apron or a name tag will wander up to you and ask you if they can help. And, oh, can they! Tell them your budget, what your friend likes, and they’ll give you plenty of options. Be upfront if you don’t know anything—they can still make recommendations. Wine store employees are a lot like librarians: they wander about all day just dying for someone to ask them a question.
I also docked the mirror because it isn't obvious how to work the suction cup mechanism. I had to watch the very informative video on how to do it. Ideally it would have been obvious without the video. I will say this, the suction holds quite well, and hasn't fallen off yet! That's especially important because the only surface suitable for the mirror to stick to is the inside of the glass shower door. I have to move the door (and the mirror) to get into and out of the shower. The mirror hasn't budged, and I haven't had to reapply the suction cup to the door at all. Good job!

I bought 2 new Roku 4 units tested them for any fan noises...mine work great out of the box .. But they do run HOT it's ok here is what you do 1- buy a fan like eBay item # 191501624749 cheap but works perfect the fan is just larger than the Roku unit plug right into the Roku USB port..it's very quiet! It has a led but it could be cut off so that it don't shine

Last year, my husband bought me my favorite things from my childhood. A copy of the Mrs. Doubtfire movie, some Dunkaroos, and some Kool Aid. One of my favorite gifts ever because it took so long of us talking about our childhoods for him to come up with my favorites. You could make it less expensive by eliminating the movie and going with favorite childhood snacks. You have to buy some on Amazon because they aren’t in stores anymore necessarily.

If you purchase this pen, you will need to invest in the notebooks. So far I have not been able to find the notebooks in stores and buying them online is expensive. Their website is cheaper than Amazon, but they also charge shipping. The sample booklet it came with only lasted me half a semester. You also have to buy the ink cartridges (The off brand one works fine!) as I went through three in a semester. I wish someone offered a darker ink, but its alright. They also sell smart pen cases, which I would recommend you... Read more

On many college campuses bicycles are the mode of transportation, and helpful accessories are a welcome gift. Vibrelli had a great phone mount that allows for hands-free talking and navigation without the risk of dropping your phone. A rechargeable bike light from Light and Motion makes a nice addition to the gift and helps increase safe biking at night.
Food, honestly, is never a bad gift. People need to eat, and they’d prefer to eat something delicious. Similarly, home décor is often the last thing on somebody’s mind. So give them a jar or vase full of the delicious manna of your choice, and once they’ve scarfed that down, they’ll have a nice receptacle for flowers to go on the dining room table. (Or the hand-me-down kitchen table with the bum leg that could really use all the help it can get.)

Perfect for those BYOB parties and date functions you always get invited to.

School is about to start and college students all over are getting ready for another semester of classes, assignments, activities, and fun. Some are anxious to begin another scholastic time period while others may be lamenting the departure of a lazy summer. Either way, college students could always benefit from a gift or two, and who better suited to give them such gifts than you? So if you’re looking for that perfect gift for that perfect (or maybe not so perfect) college student, check out these 25 Cool Gifts College Students Want This School Season.
This fan from Vornado helps cool things down while looking ultra cool, and also tunning out noisy neighbors. It’s got a hip, retro feel, designed after the original Vornado Fan from 1945. This one is compact though, measuring just 11.4" x 10.1" x 6.1", so it’s great for small spaces like dorm rooms and apartments. Stylish and functional, it features two-speed settings and a rotating head, and it comes with a five-year warranty.
1) Scrapbooks from Michaels. They have had coupons left & right for 50% off reg. priced items. I bought 6 scrapbooks from Michaels @ 3 for $10. They came with 10 pages, so 20 slots counting back and front for scrap pages. And another 2 leather scrapbooks @ $10 each (they were 50% off). The leather ones are really nice b-cuz they have the metal rings so that you can add more page protectors, if needed. And they are pretty large/wide. The 2 leather ones are for me 🙂 I am starting the scrapbook for my mom and sister and I will be adding few scrap pages and scrap tools (ink, letters, etc.) so that they can make some of their own. I think it’s a great gift. Kohls also has good deals on scrapbooks sometimes. You can at times find them for 50-60% off and you end up paying right about $10-$12 (this is if you’re looking for fancier scrapbooks and you’re willing to pay more than $10 for a gift). Try the Dollar Store (even Dollar & Up Stores), Big Lots or shop the clearance section for cheap supplies.
You can’t swing a dead cat around the countryside without hitting a craft brewery these days. Pretty much everywhere you turn, there’s a bunch of bearded guys in flannel shirts offering you a free sample of their latest creation, usually something with a clever name like Hops on Pop IPA. You could get something local, something seasonal, or something weird. Great for that friend who’s still drinking Natty Lite at age 32.
Starting last month, my Roku 4's fan started running constantly and making strange noises that I could hear 2 rooms away. I thought other reviewers were exaggerating about the noise, but it is LOUD. I contacted customer service to report the issue and worked through their suggested steps of rebooting the thing, unplugging it, resetting... Read more

The Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones edge out the crowded pack of over-the-ear headphones through deep, powerful sound (provided by proprietary Bose-engineered designs), a pillow-like headband and precise rotating ear pads, alongside an almost excessively long cable with inline remote. Factor that into pretty serious noise isolation, and these are the perfect “chilling in a dorm bed” headphones. There's a 20-hour battery life per charge (and 40 in wired mode) and they weigh just 10.9 ounces.

Transform your boyfriend from teenager to man with a timepiece that matches his maturing attitude. Nothing says sophisticated like checking the time on your wrist instead of your phone. It will also help him tackle adulthood with a good head on his shoulders. After all, he will need to look professional when he interviews for that coveted internship.

If it wasn’t for Mom’s college care packages, I don’t know how I would have made it through college.  Now you can send your student the ultimate snack care package without all the time and work it would take to create this kind of variety.  The Ultimate Snacks Variety Box care packages for college students contain an assortment of 50 individually wrapped snacks including chips, cookies, candy, granola bars, tea, and more all neatly packed in a gift pack.  In rare instances substitutions may have to be made in the contents depending on availability, but not in count.  Give a gift that won’t last long in time, but they will remember forever.
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.
