9 Novelty Gifts You’ll Probably Receive This Christmas If You’re Still a Student
Students can be hard to buy for at Christmas. Really all they want is money, but where’s the fun in that? Here are some things you’ll inevitably receive instead.
1. A strobing beer glass.
To some, a strobing beer glass may seem like a great novelty gift for a student – because you’re always drinking right??? However, what people don’t realise, is that you actually have very limited cupboard space and care very little about what you drink from.
2. A Beer Pong kit.
American teen comedies started it, now it’s time to finish it. You’d much rather get a crate of beers in and just play actual ping pong.
3. The “How To Be A Student” guidebook.
The truth is, there’s no correct way to be a student – and even if there was, no DIY self help book is going to tell you how. At the end of the day, nothing can prepare you for preparing for your future.
4. The Hungover Cookbook.
Look, you don’t like cooking at the best of times, least of all when you’re hungover. Nice try, though.
5. A Desktop Drum Kit.
Please don’t do it. The last thing you need is another thing to distract you from actually doing work.
6. Jelly shot moulds.
You like jelly, you like shots, so this should be an ideal gift. But by the time you remember you actually own jelly shot moulds it’s too late and everyone just ends up drinking shots as they were originally intended to be.
7. Cards Against Humanity.
Part-time party game, part-time friendship destroyer – Cards Against Humanity has established itself as the ultimate card game to play with friends, especially among students. So what’s the problem? Well CAH is actually available as a free download for you to print and create your own cards, so why waste that precious student loan?
8. The self-stirring lazy mug.
Because you don’t have time to stir a spoon. In fact, you probably don’t have any clean spoons anyway. Perhaps this isn’t so bad.
9. And another onesie.
Yes they keep you warm and the aid they provide towards student life is unparalleled, but students are at the point now where everyone who wants one already has one.
You better get practising your surprised face. 🙈
