Since most students don’t have much room to play around with in their student dorms or shared flats, they are particularly thankful for compact gifts that take up little to no space in the kitchen. Practical gifts that are used in everyday life, such as backpacks or student planners, are also always welcome.
If you want to give a present to someone who loves to cook, keep in mind that small student kitchens in particular need a little creativity and ingenuity when it comes to storage. Students often do not have a large enough budgets for expensive kitchen appliances, and may be missing the right gadgets to easily prepare elaborate dishes or small snacks. With a Personal Blender with Travel Cups, you can mix a healthy fruit smoothie in an instant. Personal food blenders are also perfect for creating quick vegetable soups or mixing yoghurt based snacks or drinks as a healthy snack between lectures. Plus, the practical To-Go cups fit easily in to backpacks and are designed to be closed tightly and leak-proof.
Anyone who loves cooking would be thrilled to receive a recipe book with clever ideas for making healthy recipes. For students, a cookbook with tips for homemade delicacies or dishes that can be prepared easily and on a budget is a great idea. Online or in-store, you can find a large selection of cookbooks, such as inexpensive recipes, food to-go and meal prep ideas for breakfast and lunch, and even books for particularly lazy cooks.
Food Dehydrators are also a very practical gift. Students can make their own tasty, yet healthy, chips out of fruit and vegetable slices or even a Homemade Yoghurt mixture. These healthy snacks are great brain food and provide nutrients for proper concentration, perfect for snacking on during breaks and in between lectures. Dried meat, also known as Beef Jerky (try our recipe), can also be prepared in automatic food dehydrators; the perfect protein-packed snack to fight off any hunger pangs between meals. Combine with a cool lunch box or a tupperware set to complete this practical gift for students.
DNeed more gift ideas? How about a functional bag or backpack? Essential for storing documents, laptops or tablets as well as any other university supplies and healthy snacks, students often want a unique looking bag to show off every year. A good backpack or shoulder bag should have enough compartments and smart features to make everyday life easier. Many students would also look forward to receiving a trendy organiser or diary to make a note of their exam and submission dates, plus any other important events.
A high-quality drinking bottle also belongs in every student's backpack. For long days studying in the library, to driving back home during term breaks, drinking enough water is important for pupils and students. We especially recommended robust and durable drinking bottles, made from BPA-free materials, that are also light and comfortable to carry.
