He may not be ready for a ball-out watch quite yet, but that doesn’t mean he can’t boast a sleek timepiece on his wrist. Slightly aged Chromexcel leather will pair just as timelessly with his weekend grub clothes as it will with his business-casual interview garb. The watch features a button stud, so the watch won’t chafe or irritate when he writes out notes.
10. Good reads. Rosie Project is an amusing best seller that focuses on a genetics professor and a waitress that's definitely not your typical love story. Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's "Learned" is written by Lena Dunham, star of the HBO series Girls. Redeployment takes readers to the front lines in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
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.
Your mileage on something like this is going to vary based on who you're getting it for and how much stuff they like. Might work better as a one-off care package for starving college students rather than how I did it, a subscription item for my teenagers' school lunches. In my case the kids pick through just what they like, leaving behind what they don't until the next box comes, and I'm left with a growing mountain of those radiant orange peanut butter cracker sandwiches.
1. Care packages—Do-it-yourself care packages for students can include things like socks, single-serve soups, beauty or grooming products, gift cards, or even cold, hard cash. Basically, anything you think the student in your life will appreciate is fair game. The amount you spend is up to you. (If you're short on time, you might want to consider a pre-packaged gift basket full of goodies.)

Sometimes guys’ obsessions with video games can seem a little hard to understand. But if your boyfriend loves them, you can’t pass up an opportunity to hand him something related to it. Buying your man something related to his favorite game, like Overwatch, will show him how much you care. “Even if she hates video games,” said University of Iowa junior Wyatt Dlouhy, “it’s nice to see her go out of her way to learn about something she doesn’t care much about.” Your thoughtfulness will mean so much more than a video game session.

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.)
11. Briefcase or nice bag. While a briefcase is the traditional gift for a law school graduate, it can also be a great gift for any college graduate. Don't worry about needing to buy the nicest, brand-name, all-leather bag you can find, either; messenger bags and other options might work, too, depending on your graduate's career field and geographic location.
Stumped on what to get the college-aged person in your life? Whether it’s a going away gift, a birthday present or something clutch for the holidays, a well-placed gift can go a long way toward keeping students focused, on-task and firmly un-homesick. That’s why we put together this gift guide for the university gang, including everything from an all-purpose backpack to a laptop that does just about everything (except get them a 4.0, they'll have to do that on their own).
Everyone striking out on their own needs a good set of knives, and these stainless-steel babies do the trick. They may look playful thanks to their nonstick coatings, but these Cuisinart knives mean business, too. Their ergonomic handles make slicing easier, and the color-coding with help prevent your newbie chef from cross-contaminating his foods.
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

Wow! these are some amazing gift ideas. Well thinking about gifts for loved ones is very hectic task. I always try to select such gifts that can be beneficial for others.

Himalayan salt lamps are said to have health and healing properties as well. So, I thought it would be a great gift idea.

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.

Looking for gift both of you can enjoy together? “Tickets to a comedy show with a comedian like Kevin Hart,” Boston College senior Kevin Chapin recommended. Not only will the two of you laugh the night away, you won’t have to plan a big anniversary date. The gift is the date. You get double the fun with half the work. You”ll even continue your relationship with even more inside jokes to share.
Unless you live in Florida or Southern California, it’s probably cold where you are. And cold-weather accessories are, at least for me, always the first things that go missing just when you need them. They fall out of a pocket, or somehow find their way under the seat of your car, or you toss them in the back of the closet and only rediscover them the following summer when you’re looking for some long-lost piece of sports equipment.

This is such a fun DIY gift list! I especially love the boho chic jewelry trays and the birch tree art. It can be hard for me to think of a gift that anyone would like, and home decor is a great idea I hadn’t really thought of. This year, my side of the family is going to try $15 or less gifts for each other–something that will be hard to do without trying to make them instead of buy them. Thanks for the ideas!

You like the idea of throwing them to the wolves, but then you remember how many times you’ve sat back and watched in disbelief. Add a car to the mix and it only gets worse. Trust us, roadside assistance is a really good idea. Because deep down inside, you know that for every happy ending, there’s a 1990 Camaro on the side of the road somewhere with a skeleton in the front seat.
