11 Stocking Stuffers College Kids Might Love More Than What's Under The Tree

11 Stocking Stuffers College Kids Might Love More Than What's Under The Tree

Socks. Please buy us socks.

The holiday season is approaching and just like that, you need to find stocking stuffers and Secret Santa gifts for your closest friends and also almost complete strangers. Here are a few easy cheats that you can use to bring out smiles from whoever you're handing off the gift wrap to.

1. Slippers

Holiday slippers? Regular slippers? Funny slippers? Any pair will do to keep their feet warm against the attack of cold hardwood floors in winter.

2. A journal

If they're into drawing, make it a sketch pad. If they write lots of lists then a bullet book is perfect!

3. Pens

There are some people who have a favorite pen. If that's the case find out, you'll be surprised how much joy writing utensils can bring.

4. Headphones

Now, I'm not talking about Beats by Dre here. For a stocking stuffer, you can simply grab a pair of earbuds out of the checkout line so they have an extra pair to keep in their coat or purse or bookbag.

5. Music gift cards

Do they prefer iTunes? Spotify? Pandora Plus? Slip a gift card in their stocking and let them listen to you for a month or two.

6. A framed photo

If the person you're buying for is close to you, or if they're not that close to you but you have a photo with them, pop it into a frame for a little sentimentality.

7. Candy

Like Halloween part two! Load up their stocking with all of their favorite snacks.

8. Playing cards

A great small gift to slip in and an endless list of possible games coming with it.

9. A Nerf gun

Let out your childish side and remind everyone about how the holidays felt as a kid.

10. Socks

As a kid, these were not exciting but now as an adult? Amazing.

11. Their favorite CD

Sometimes people forget about the good old fashion joy of listening to an album all the way through in the car, get them the album they've been begging you to listen to.

5 Gifts to Get the Theatre Fan in Your Life

Break a leg with your shopping!

With outreaching shows like Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen, it seems like Broadway is more prominent than ever. As a result, you may have a lot of theatre friends. If you're not as interested as they are, you may be unsure what to get them as a gift. Not anymore!

1. Opera Binoculars

Listen, good seats in theaters are expensive. So, buying balcony seats aren't at all uncommon to buy. However, opera binoculars allow you to see everything that's going on the stage much more clearly; thus making it a more enjoyable experience!

2.Playbill Binders

Playbills the programs that we get at the show, tend to hold a special place in our hearts. Binders are a great way for us to store them and ensure that they're kept in great condition. Even if we already have one, we always need room for more.

3. Playbill Pajamas

These adorable PJ's have designs from some of the most famous Broadway playbills! A perfect way for a theatre fan to show their love.

4. Comedy/Tragedy Necklace

Unlike the playbill pajamas, this is a more subtle gift. But that doesn't make it any less cute.

5. Broadway Tickets

Bonus points if you're able to score us tickets to Hamilton.

Happy shopping, and break a leg!
