HUEVEMBER is a month-long art challenge where artists around the world and across mediums follow prompts to create color themed art every day of the month. Although every artist interprets the challenge in their own way there are a few standards which are followed. Due to the fact that this is supposed to be a challenge, artists attempt to feature a different color every day they participate. Many artists will also use this challenging period to do more than use an abundance of color. Artists who use color in their work on an everyday basis have been known to step outside of their comfort zone and use a new medium or even test colorful art supplies during this challenge.
11. Card Game—A part of attending school is having fun with your friends. That can easily be achieved with one of the popular card games like Cards Against Humanity, Never Have I Ever, The Adult Party Card Game of Poor Life Decisions, or Exploding Kittens. These games can be seen as both slightly inappropriate and completely hilarious—a winning combination for many college students.
Whether they're lounging, studying, or recovering from a cold your college student needs some of the warm comforts of home. This best selling throw blanket from Amazon comes in 14 different colors to suit any decor scheme and it also comes in a throw, twin, or queen size depending on their preference. They'll have the option to snuggle up to the flannel side or the textured sherpa side depending on their needs.
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.
In my unscientific but thorough survey of gift ideas for college students, I would say some 94.8 percent of all college students have, at some point, either received a copy of Dr. Seuss’s Oh, The Places You’ll Go or had it quoted at them. It’s a classic read, but as far as gifts for college students go, it’s clichéd — and you can give a practical, useful, and unique gift to a college student that’s better than that. To make things a little easier, I spoke with actual college students about the most memorable gifts they’ve ever received, the gear and gadgets they use every day, and the items on their wish lists to find the best gifts for college freshmen, gifts for college graduates, and all the students in between.
But on the other hand, they’re working their butt off to get their degree, so why not help them treat themselves with something they wouldn’t buy? Braven makes boomboxes with serious power, and Penny Skateboard creates super slick boards to help them cruise the campus in style. Both these gifts are splurges the normal college student might not ball out for, but the top-of-the-line quality will ensure they have these gifts for years to come.

I purchased the XL version of this bag on May, 11 2015 and I have carried it nearly every day since. I bought this to replace a similar messenger bag made by Rapid Dominance, because I was searching for something with a bit more of a vintage style. I researched quite a few different bags before deciding on this particular model. The bag arrived within a few days of my order, it was boxed and bagged inside the box. I was immediately amazed by the quality of the bag. The size was perfect at 17.3". I excitedly began jamming my daily stuff into the new bag. It easily holds my binder, and a variety of small things that I carry daily. I do not use this bag for transporting any type of laptop, so I cannot speak to using it for that purpose.
If you ask any college student, I’m pretty sure they would say that it seems like they have lived on coffee for periods at college and the Hamilton Beach 49980A 2-Way Single-Serve Coffee Brewer and Full Pot Coffee Maker is the perfect, flexible way to provide the go-juice your student needs. They can save money by brewing their own coffee instead of picking up expensive Starbucks and blowing their scarce cash. It’s easy to use, even for a college Brainiac, and it has plenty of features and flexibility to make it an indispensable college appliance. This model actually doubles as both a single-serve Keurig-style coffee brewer for just one 14-oz. serving of great coffee for the student or a full 12-cup carafe coffeemaker for late-night study sessions with fellow students. It features a non-stick hot plate, automatic shutoff, a built-in programmable clock/timer, and an adjustable single-serve side multi-level cup rest that adjusts to fit all cup and mug sizes. This will be their go-to gift over and over during their college career.
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.
Cooking with fresh herbs makes all the difference, if you can remember to buy them and use them before they spoil. With Back to the Roots Garden-in-a-Can, houseplants become food and basil, cilantro, dill, and sage are never further than the windowsill. Everything needed to grow and maintain the plants (except water) with no mess and no transplanting is in the can.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
At some point, everyone needs a good tool kit, and this 100-piece set from Workpro contains all the basics to make small repairs around the house. It includes a hammer, wrench, pliers, and pretty much everything you would need to build or fix minor repairs. What's more this tool kit comes in a compact size that can fit in a kitchen drawer so it won't take up valuable space. When you drop off your kid just tuck in a corner for them to use when the need strikes.
Comic books are a growing market, and there’s a lot more out there these days than just Marvel and DC. There are classics like The Watchmen (for someone who’s interested in a new take on superhero tropes), socio-political graphic memoirs like Persepolis or Maus, and literary works from Chris Ware or Daniel Clowes. A great recent series is The Wicked + The Divine, about 12 gods who are incarnated every 90 years as David Bowie-esque pop stars.
What is a Smart Pen? It’s the modern way to take notes in class. Pens like the Livescribe 2GB Echo Smartpen record everything your student writes and hears either together or separately. They can tap anywhere on their notes taken on Livescribe Dot paper to replay the audio from that exact moment or transfer notes and audio to their Mac or Windows PC for later review, organization, and sharing. They can even search their notes for fast location of critical sections. Sharing is easy via email or other services. They need to use special paper, but that’s a small drawback compared to how helpful this form of note-taking can be to students. With all the Livescribe Dot paper formats, your student is sure to find one that is best for them including college-ruled notebooks, lined journals, blank journals, mini journals, A5-sized notebooks, grid notebooks, flip notepads, and even sticky notes. They can even print their own dot paper for free using the Echo Desktop application. With 2GB of memory, there is plenty of room for notes or audio including up to 200 hours of audio or thousands of pages of notes. It comes with a 50-page tarter notebook, the Echo Desktop software, a micro USB cable, 2 ink cartridges, and a smartpen cap. Give the gift that makes the most difficult part of college (other than the tests and quizzes) easier for them.
You’re here, but you want to be there. So you spend your life narrowing this divide, and you call this your race, your journey, your path. You live your days tightening your bootstraps, wiping the sweat from your brow, chasing undiscovered happiness just around the bend. In Chasing Slow, Erin turns away from fast and fame and frenzy. Follow along as she blazes the trail toward a new-fashioned lifestyle—one that will refresh your perspective, renew your priorities, and shift your focus to the journey that matters most.
Hot, comforting mugs of darjeeling are just a steam whistle away with this sleek kettle. Even when it’s not in use, the streamlined design and retro hue make this kettle a must-have stovetop accessory. And let’s be real, there’s something about making tea the old-fashioned way that’s so much more satisfying than pushing some buttons on a microwave.
1. Diploma frame from the graduate's school. Whether your graduate is going to run her own company or have a small office in a mega-company somewhere, they'll most likely want to display their diploma proudly for all to see—and for years to come. Many campus bookstores offer diploma frames with college or university logos that will add that extra "pop" to your graduate's official degree.
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.”
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!
For the first two weeks, the mirror showed no evidence of fogging whatsoever, my normal routine is to turn on the shower and let it run while I brush my teeth, etc., and thereby allowing me to enter into a nice hot shower experience. After this two week period however, I noticed evidence of fogging around the mirror edges, then the entire mirror was fogged up. Now I will admit that splashing some water on it does remove the fog and enables me to shave mostly unimpeded by fog for the balance of my shave . With time I've been forced to splash water on it more than once to keep it... Read more
Here’s a gift that students will appreciate the first time they are sick at 2 a.m. Put together a kit that includes first aid supplies and over-the-counter medications that your teen is likely to need. Steer away from prepackaged kits; no one knows what your kid needs better than you. Consider: cough drops, cold remedies, eye drops, thermometer, hydrocortisone, antacids, analgesics, antibacterial creams, and other things your college kid will need.
Cell phones are an indispensable, and expensive, piece of equipment and your student needs a relabel case to keep it from shattering if they drop it (which they will.) While you can find many more expensive models, the Silk phone case has a texture that makes it grippy, not slippy, is lightweight, has protective corners (“airbags for phones”) and is very well-priced. Plus, it gets top marks by the NYTimes Wirecutter.
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.
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.
For novice chefs, I recommend the Budget Bytes cookbook, which is designed for people who are new to cooking and who want to save money. The focus is on simplicity, with a lot of basic recipes that can be adapted or modified however you wish. Plus, with the endless food blogs we have these days, you can give your recipient a book that already has a built-in community, where they can seek out further recipes as well as tips and tricks.
This precision-crafted 13-In-One Multitool set that is versatile enough to be used for quick fixes on-the-go or at the home, to help you with your DIY, Survival, camping or outdoor needs, and is even considered absolutely essential for some of the professionals like fishermen, woodsmen, plumber or electrician. The best part is this pocket multi-tool is extremely compact and can easily slip into your laptop or carry-all bag. Great inexpensive Christmas gift for the outdoorsy man in your life.
