With Christmas right around the corner, the weeks running up to the big day are usually taken up by gift buying and holiday festivities. If you are a university student, you can almost guarantee that you are going to be roped in to a Secret Santa pool with one or more of your classes or social circles. Whilst Secret Santa can be fun, it can also be stressful if you are completely stuck for present ideas! If you do find yourself struggling to come up with a gift idea and your university Secret Santa happens to study tech, then fear not, we have a whole host of different suggestions that we think are absolutely perfect for a tech student. So, without further ado, here are some great student Secret Santa suggestions!
Help them wrap up warm with Scarves/Gloves/Hats
Tech students often find themselves working in chilly computer or engineering labs. Help them combat the cold this winter by gifting your Secret Santa a cosy winter hat, pair of gloves or lovely warm scarf. These accessories will be the kind of gift that keep on giving, because they can be worn to and from lectures all through the winter months.
Help them get ‘merry’ on beer
If there’s one type of student that needs a gift to help them unwind, it a techy. Countless hours spent working through algebraic computer code doesn’t lend itself well to relaxation. The Christmas break is going to be their best chance to let their hair down ‘til summer break starts. Although, beer might not be the most original idea, it’s still a gift that will be greatly received! The great thing about beer these days is that it is more trendy than it has ever been, and that means that there are a whole host of different and interesting varieties and flavours to choose from. Push the boat out a little bit and make your Secret Santa gift a four pack of some really cool, independently-made beer.
Equip them for their next term with stationery
Whatever field you study in, as a student, you can never have too much stationery and sometimes it is nice to push the boat out and purchase a few extra special items that aren’t necessarily in the budget aisle. There are plenty of great websites where you can buy stationery online that is a little quirkier and fun than the normal HB 2s. Whether your Secret Santa likes Star Wars, Disney or a certain sports team, there will definitely be something to find!
Provide the entertainment with a board Game
Board games are a classic pastime and if your SS studies tech then chances are they love logic and strategy games. Unfortunately these are usually something that stays at home when you move away to university. Bring some of that old fashioned fun back into the dorm room by gifting a fun board game. It can provide some entertaining distraction when studying just isn’t an option, as well as lend some nostalgic memories of childhood that are really valuable when you are living away from home for the first time.
Travel Mugs For Coffee Lovers
It would be fair to say that students love coffee as much as they love beer! Make your Secret Santa subject’s commute to lectures is more manageable by gifting them a fun and cool travel mug. There are literally thousands to choose from so you’ll definitely be able to find a design that suits your subject perfectly.
