Having a charged phone is a true safety device.  Jackery Portable Charger This small charger can easily fit in a backpack or briefcase and serves the same purpose of never letting a phone go dead.  
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.
True story: I asked for a subscription to The Economist for several years in a row, and never got it, and it always bummed me out. Now, The Economist is not a cheap gift (there’s a reason I asked someone else to buy it for me) but there are plenty of other magazines subscriptions to be had for far less than the combined newsstand price of a few issues. (For instance, you can get three months of print and digital access to the New Yorker for only $12, plus a free tote bag!)
My wife and I have had this coffee maker for a month, and we love it. Well, we love HALF of it -- the left half. We've probably made more than 100 cups of coffee on the single-serve side, and every single one has been terrific, with better taste than one typically gets from making a full pot of coffee. And with the single-serve side, we're actually using LESS coffee than we were using with our previous coffee maker, which was a standard "carafe" style coffee maker. (In fact, we're using about HALF as much coffee as we were using with the old coffee maker.) One of the issues that this coffee maker solves is that my wife likes lightly brewed flavored coffee, while I like dark-roast coffee that is brewed for hand-to-hand combat. ;-) This coffee maker works well in that type of environment.
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.

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.
they weren't kidding when they said these personal alarms were loud, issue i have is turning it off! I had to take the batteries out of it to shut it off, the ear piercing sound was driving me crazy. My other issue is who is it supposed to stop or deter? If it makes me deaf and hurts my ears using it does it really do what it is intended? I gave it 4 stars for it because of it not shutting off. i would prefer it to have a shut off i can use and not hurt my ears in the process
Thanks for sharing such amazing gift ideas. Well this Christmas season I spent so much time in thinking about gifts but I couldn’t think of anything different. Then I decided to give Himalayan salt lamps as a gift to my loved ones. These lamps are so unique and beautiful. I just love them for myself so I thought that it would be a great thing to give to my loved ones. I got them from ittefaqco.
At college, when the stress gets high, sometimes you just need to kick back and let life rush on around you and there is no better way to do that with an All-In-One Happy Times Parachute Hammock.  It can be used either as a two-person double hammock swing or a one-person single cocoon hammock bed.  It comes with everything you need to quickly and easily hang this beautiful hammock between two solid anchors (like trees) up to 18 feet apart safely and without damage to the anchors (trees).  They are so simple to use it will only take your student a couple of minutes to wrap the straps around the anchors and pull them tight.

Keeping a journal can help increase focus, promote mindfulness, and boost memory. An empty notebook is also just full of promise, especially for a person of a creative or analytical bent. I’m a fan of Baron Fig’s Confidant notebook, but the Internet and the world are full of options of varying size, style, and price. Include a little note of encouragement to subtly shame them into keeping up a regular correspondence (with themselves, or the void).

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.

They work on most models of smartphones and tablets, and countless satisfied customers say they’re a great way to improve the quality of your pictures for a small price.
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.

I bought this for my son in college. He loved it! It has great recipes that are easy for college students to make. I was very surprised to find that I would actually enjoy making some of the recipes myself. I have a daughter going to college shortly. Best believe she will have this book to take with her. Worth the money. This is also great as a stocking stuffer for Christmas.
I love to give a nice batch of homemade cookies or candies. Truffles are easy to make and well received. I like to make biscotti because they are cheap, easy, and most people really like them. They are expensive to buy ready-made, so people seem to think they are extra good. Most people love them and you can give an assortment of flavors if you have a lot of people to give to.
College is notorious for taking away any semblance of a good night’s sleep. To help make it out of bed on those way-too-early mornings after way-too-late nights, Philips has devised a wake-up light that imitates the sun. 30 minutes before you need to get out of bed, the light will slowly increase the brightness in your room, simulating a natural sunrise. This gradual wake-up is proven to increase your mood, energy, and productivity throughout the day.

Probably the best bag I have ever had. This bag fits all my college textbooks and it pockets on the outside to fit all of your utensils! Very comfortable to wear, the strap is adjustable, so you can fix it to your liking. Fits well with all types of outfits, I'm always getting compliments on this bag. Do yourself a favor and stop wasting your time because this is the bag your looking for.
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!
Spikeball has hit college campuses hard, but if your collegian does not have a set, this is a fun, inexpensive, active game to take back to campus. With four players (2 vs. 2), one net, and one tennis-size ball, the game can be played in any small patch of grass and stores easily under a bed. Kid already has Spikeball? Try KanJam for the same four players but this time substitute a Frisbee for a ball and a can for a net.
A cookbook is always a good gift for a beginner cook, and Amanda Cohen, chef and owner of Manhattan’s Dirt Candy, relied on this one when she was in college. “Will you ever cook from it? Well, I did when I was in university, and the approachable recipes were a great way to ease me into the kitchen,” she said, adding, “And for me, it’s almost like a scrapbook, reminding me of when I tried to make Gypsy Soup, of hours spent poring over the recipes for Vegetable and Walnut Pate, Stuffed Eggplant, and Lentil burgers, trying to figure out how to tweak these dishes to make them better, learning from what they were doing, and slowly, page by page, without even knowing it, becoming a chef.”
