It is a scary time for any parent when your child goes off to university, especially if they are moving away from home for the first time. You want to make sure they have all of their home touches whilst receiving their education, but realise you won’t be there to make sure they have everything they need. Your child has entered a new chapter of their life, where they will have to be fully independent. This is important to keep in mind when buying gifts for students.
Whether you want to send over a little care package for your student to remind them of home or if you want to give them something practical, here at Box Gioia we have your gifting needs covered.
Practical Gifts for Students
A tote bag is a multi-functional accessory that your student is missing out on. They can take their laptop to class in it or use it at the supermarket as a shopping bag. Our classic tote bags are made from a natural canvas with a long double strap. You can also personalise all of our tote bags, so you can add your own personal touch to the bag. Our tote bags are also eco-friendly, thanks to them being reusable and washable!
A notebook is a classic and practical gift for any student, no matter what they are studying. Our Little Calm and Happy Planner is updated so that your student can kickstart their goals at any time. Whether they need to manifest ideas or break down yearly targets, this planner is the perfect solution for both.
Socks are the most comfortable and practical piece of clothing a university student can own. For those students who are quirky, we have a wide range of art socks available to add an element of fun to their fashion choice of the day. There are very few accessories that can pull together an outfit quickly and still look good, even if the outfit is an oversized hoodie. Our scrunchies are perfect for pulling an outfit together quickly. By gifting them to your student, they will have the option of adding a practical and fashionable touch to their outfit. After all, nobody wants hair in their eyes when they are trying to study.
Reminders of Home
Students live busy lives in between studying and social lives, meaning that they are often likely to forget the basics such as a morning cup of tea before class. At Box Gioia, we have a wide range of tea and coffee for you to choose from. Good & Proper Chamomile Tea produces a fresh sweet cup, with hints of honey and apple. Other than being a tasty treat for you students, it has sleep-promoting effects which are great for those students who are struggling to get their sleep.
A candle will help to remind those homesick students of their favourite place. Our Aery Positive Energy Candle is a great gift to help lift the mood of your loved ones if they are missing home. Uplifting grapefruit fills their home with punchy fresh and juicy notes.
