Christmas presents for College Students at Staples


This is a sponsored post for Staples.

When I was in college, which feels like forever ago, there were always things on my Christmas wish list to restock my school supplies. It’s crazy how much you need to get through a day at college. It also can get expensive when you are footing the bill for everything yourself!

I shopped around at my local Staples to see what they have this holiday season for college students! There were so many last minute stocking stuffers prominently displayed front and center in the store.

Christmas Presents for College Students at Staples

1. Planners and Notebooks

I love fresh paper – especially in time for a new semester. However, sometimes you just need a notebook to keep track of to-do lists, assignments, upcoming events and more. You can’t go wrong with a fun notebook to start off the new year like the Erin Condren Hardbound LifePlanner or a soft iridescent journal.

2. Colored Pens and Highlighters

For those who like to take notes by hand, I think colored pens are the way to go. These Pentel ones are my favorite. Also, let’s not forget a good highlighter. Where were these clear tip highlighters while I was in college?!

3. Desk Supplies

This stapler (available in-store only) is everything. It would make me happy stapling my 8-page lab report together with it. Honestly, it would make me happy just sitting on my desk. Also, assorted color sticky notes make a great stocking stuffer!

4. Decorations and Feel Good Notes

There is no doubt that college is hard. This Plum & Punch Pretty 5×7 Frame (available in-store only) is a perfect pick-me-up that doubles as a dorm room decoration.

    I saw that Iridescent Desktop Staples brand stapler at the store once and they never re-stocked it. And of course because it was never online it’s impossible to find now. So sad. Thanks for your blog.

    1. Bummer you can’t find it. It’s such a cool looking stapler.
