Gifts every student wants*

Monday, 3 December 2018



*Disclaimer so maybe not every student will want these but, a lot of students will enjoy these gifts. Unfortunately, I can't even share any stats as I don't actually have them, because they don't exist. So you'll have to take my word for it. P.s. This post includes swearing and other rude things, so if this isn't for you feel free to click off as I'd hate to offend anyone! xo


Present buying can be such a difficult task, so I decided to compile a list of gifts which I would have loved to have got as a student. I feel like when you're a student you spend most of your money on food, booze and bills so it's great to get a gift you wouldn't usually buy for yourself. As well as new socks, because although 10 year old me hated getting them, 23 year old me is game. So this guide includes some items which are a *little bit* of the box, and not for the fainthearted. All of the items on the list are under £20 and most of them are under £10. So it's a great guide (if I may say so myself) for students to buy students or family members to buy for students. Or, if you just like cats, games and random selection of books this guide may also do well for you. 

Power up washi tape
Personalised Nutella

Power up Washi tapes from Mustard £7 
These tapes are a great present for any stationery geeks in your life, to be honest, I've never needed a washi tape, however, they make studying more fun as you can cover most notebooks and pages in them. Plus forget ever licking an envelope again, you can just seal it up with washi tape, win. 

Personalised Nutella £4
This year Nutella has become of my favourite things to eat, and it pretty much goes with everything sweet, some of my personal faves are waffles, croissants and in a sundae. You can now get your own personalised jar from a number of places, I purchased mine from Debenhams but I know Selfridges also offer this service.  

Cat Chaos
Truth bombs

Cat Choas £8 / Truth Bombs £15/ Shit Happens £13
Games are coming back with full force, and not the console type. Good old-fashioned games but they're more out there than ever and appeal to the masses. Most games students do incorporate drinking into them, and as much as a deck of cards can be great fun it is awesome to have some alternatives. 

Cat Choas is an easy game to set up and requires quick thinking like snap, you need to attempt to swap the cards in the middle with your cards to make up a full collection. There are 4 cards of each cat celebrity and the winner is who completes their suits the quickest. It's an addictive game and will keep you entertained for hours, plus you can use the cards to make your own games out of too. 

Truth Bombs is a great game but can get pretty brutal, in a nutshell, a number of cards get drawn, enough for each player who is taking part and the questions can be anything from what would their online name be to who would they push off a cliff, and then at random every player writes down an answer to one of the questions for each person, the pad will get passed around and the person has to guess who wrote what, as these are done at random it's harder to guess. I wouldn't recommend playing this game if you're easily offended, but playing it whilst drinking seems even more fun, as long as you can still write. 

Shit Happens is a pretty simple concept. You get dealt a hand of cards and each card has a number between 1-100 on them, on a scale of shit to the shittest (which is buried alive) and you pick a card from the deck and then read it for the person next to you and then they have to decide where within the shit index the card would it go. I wouldn't necessarily agree with the lineup of all of these cards and it depends what you would find the 'shittest' but it's a great game and gets you thinking. 

Dungarees & Donuts gift guide.

Gourmet Popcorn from the Popcorn Shed £3.50
Who doesn't like popcorn? I mean I know I love it and it's a pretty easy crowd pleaser, for £3.50 you can get a shed load (excuse the pun) of popcorn in a range of flavours with everything from Salted Caramel to Cheese. They're a great stocking filler or lush to include in a hamper as they're so brightly coloured. Oh, and they taste pretty good too. Not too sure on the cheese one though, the jury is still out. 

The Very Hungover Caterpillar £4
A twist on the book the hungry caterpillar, a childhood favourite of mine. The twist is all about what the very hungover caterpillar gets up to. It's a short but humorous book, perfect for that bit of toilet reading or just something to cheer you up on a bad day. 

Images You Should NOT Masturbate To £7.99
I was drawn to this book as I knew it would be comical, and basically, the book is full of images you shouldn't/wouldn't want to Masturbate to. Perfect for that mate that never leaves their room or as a house secret Santa gift. 

Optional Fucks Calender
This calendar is a great desk buddy for when you're studying, especially when you have annoying housemates, it's a great way to warn them at their own risk to enter. Plus its great fun to spin the wheel and keep yano, dates in...


I hope you enjoyed this post and some of the items in this guide were gifted, however, they were all chosen by me and are only featured if I genuinely would recommend them to you. Let me know in the comments if you would buy any of these gifts!
