Gift ideas for the college and university students on your Christmas list, and the twenty-somethings just starting out on their own.
Once again, I’m excited to be partnering with Ten Thousand Villages on this post. As always, all ideas and opinions are entirely my own.
Well my friends, it's one month till Christmas. One month. till. Christmas. Yikes! Isn't it time to get shopping? So raise your hand if you love a gift roundup... *raises hand*. I personally love them all. I find them super helpful, or at least super fun. And I thought I’d put out one of my own. One for students and twenty-somethings, because that’s who I have on my gift-list. So I consider myself a bit of a pro on that age group.
You’ll find gift items for studying, laptop carrying, cooking, doing laundry (or bringing it home on the weekends!), staying warm, and of course…drinking coffee! You may remember from this post showcasing their marble cutting board, that Ten Thousand Villages' mission is to create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stories to our markets through long-term, fair trading relationships. So you can feel great about your purchases which support the makers' craft and help provide them a stable income. I know from my own student-age kids that these are issues that matter a lot to them.
Okay, one more time… raise your hand if you love online shopping… *raises hand*. Yes please. Comfy chair, sweatpants, beverage and Netflix and I’m all set. Free shipping if I order more? Ooh, okay! Would I like it to be gift-wrapped? Yes, actually I would, thanks for asking! I can have it delivered directly to the recipient? Awesome! Sign me up for all of it.
Good luck, and happy shopping! And thank you for supporting the brands that make Personally Andrea possible.
