The 8 Gifts That Are On A Basic College Bro's Christmas List This Year

Buying gifts for Christmas is already stressful as is. If you are buying a gift for someone who is a college student is even much harder. Especially if they are coming back home for the holidays and you do not see what they wear or their activities they like to do as much. When buying a basic college bro a gift for Christmas do not overthink. You just need to come up with gifts that are either practical or funny that are geared towards college men. Here is a list of some gifts a college bro can have:


Hoodies are a staple in college fashion and since it is winter and most places in the United States are somewhat cold this is practical. If you do not know what brand or type of hoodie to give go for classic colors such as gray, black, white, and navy since these colors go with everything.


Many basic bros have these in their wardrobes. Be sure to get a snapback for the team you know he likes. If he is not into sports then get a snapback with a recognizable brand.

Waterproof speaker

Music is part of the basic bro culture and when they are not listening to music on their Airpods, then they are blasting their music in their room. Get a speaker that is waterproof for those party days at the beach that has a strong bass.

Athletic shoes and clothing

The basic bro tends to be sporty so make sure to get something that they will use. Whether that be Nike, Jordans, Adidas or any type of athletic or street wear brand.

Gift cards

Gift cards are perfect for those last minute stops to the store and with so many different gift cards to get there is so many choices on what to get. Be sure to find something that appeals to a basic bro like a gift card for food, music or entertainment.


The slingshot is a classic weapon but can be used as a way to pull pranks when they decide to mess around with their friends. The bigger the slingshot the better!

Room decor

The man cave can always use some more decor or furniture. Be sure to buy any cool signs, lights or new furniture to add to the collection.

Video Games

First you must know what system the bro has before you even think about buying a game. What type of games does he like as well? Role-playing, fantasy, shooters, open world games? The list is endless...

Reusable water bottle

This serves more as a practical gift. A reusable water bottle is perfect for those gym workouts or for when the college bro is going to classes.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
