22 Gifts for College Students They’ll Use for Sure

 If you're looking to make a big difference with a gift, shopping for a college student is a good place to start. They have so many things to deal with - classes, second jobs, internships, social lives, and relationships to handle, and they probably have less money to take care of themselves. A thoughtful gift can make a huge difference in their lives, particularly when it's something they'll frequently use.
