Top 10 holiday gifts

By Christina Oddo


1. iPhone 4

The iPhone 4 is more than a cell phone. With video calling, two cameras, a high-resolution phone screen with four times the number of pixels of previous iPhone models, HD video recording and editing this newest iPhone makes the perfect, all-purpose gift this holiday season.

2. Travel Coffee Mug

Let’s face it: college life is crazy. With papers to write and exams to study for, bedtimes seem to disappear. In these situations, what’s better than a travel coffee mug? It keeps your favorite drink warm, especially on those cold nights walking back from the library. Keep warm, stay awake and get work done this holiday season with a travel coffee mug.

3. iPad

The iPad is the best way to search the Web, hands down. And who needs to search the Web more than a college student? You can even access your e-mail, watch movies, organize your photos and more. College life can become a whole lot easier with this popular holiday gift.

4. The Amazon Kindle

Who needs a backpack full of books when you can hold all the materials you need for class right in the palm of your hand? Although the Amazon Kindle does not have all of the bells and whistles of the iPad, it is a lot cheaper and allows students to carry around books without jeopardizing their backs.

5. Sony 7-inch Digital Photo Frame

Not enough room in your dorm for all your family and friend photos? With a digital photo frame, you only need a small space on your desk to display over 2,000 images (internal memory capacity = 1 GB).

6. Sweats, Snacks and iTunes Gift Cards

Enough with the fancy stuff … let’s get down to what college students actually want. Every college student loves to lounge around in sweats, and who doesn’t like to get food as a gift (i.e. granola bars, popcorn)? To top it all off, throw an iTunes gift card into the basket.

7. Alarm Clock

Get to class on time with an old-fashioned alarm clock. Although this gift may seem trivial, it will save you from missing class.

8. Snuggie

Curl up with one of these cozy fleece blankets. Snuggies give college students a greater incentive to study, as they are unbelievably comfortable and keep you perfectly warm.

9. Bedlounge/Husband/Boyfriend

Prop a bedlounge up on your bed or on your chair, recline back, get comfortable and study away. Wooden chairs in dorm rooms are not the most comfortable, so why not make your life a little easier, and a little more comfortable with a bedlounge?

10. iHome

College students love their music. The iHome can even be used as an alarm clock. Listen to your favorite music in your dorm, and make it to class on time with this holiday gift.
