White elephant gift parties are great for people of all ages. This is a great party idea for college students. There are so many great white elephant gift ideas for college students. College students need a variety of things, also they enjoy frivolous things because after tuition, bills, gas, etc they don’t have the money to buy those things. If you are a college student, think about the gifts you would like to receive. Electronics are always a great white elephant gift idea for college students. Plus there are several electronics that are great for school. Check out the following white elephant gift ideas for college students before heading off to your next party.
1. Toaster Oven: Whether the college student lives in a dorm or not, this makes a great white elephant gift idea. All college students can use this kitchen appliance. This gift can be used to reheat pizza, make garlic bread, and anything else that a regular oven would do, but it saves electricity, making one of the college student’s bills cheaper. This is a very inexpensive white elephant gift idea, costing only $20.
2. Grocery Gift Card: Like I said, college students have a ton of bills, plus tuition, books, gas, etc. This white elephant gift idea is perfect because the college student will be able to buy the food they want for once, rather than what they can afford. I suggest putting at least $30 on this gift card, that way the college student can really treat themselves to a nice meal.
3. Amazon Gift Card: After Christmas is over, there will be even more textbooks to buy. An Amazon gift card is an amazing white elephant gift idea because it can be used to purchase textbooks. Amazon Marketplace has amazing deals on textbooks. I know this because I’ve bought several of my textbooks from there. You can literally get textbooks for under $1! Other than that this card can also be used for everything from electronics to DVDs and so much more.
4. MP3 Player: I told you, college students love electronics, but don’t always have the money to spend on them. An mp3 player is such a great white elephant gift idea. An mp3 player keeps college students busy in-between classes and if you find the right one, it can also be used to record lectures.
5. Flash Drive: Flash drives have so many uses. College students can use flash drives to store important papers, keep pictures, store mp3s, and even play mp3s through an FM transmitter. You can now find flash drives for very little money. A 1 GB flash drive now costs under $30. You can even find 5 GB flash drives for $99.
I hope these white elephant gift ideas help you to have the perfect white elephant party. Remember electronics are always a great idea. Also remember to wrap the gifts without putting any names on the gift and to write on the package whether or not the package can be given to a girl or boy.
