Maddy Burgess December 23, 2022

For most students, Christmas shopping can be a very last minute task. Especially if you’re swarmed with a million deadlines over the festive season. Christmas is right around the corner now but, even if you can’t get to the shops, there is always Amazon next day delivery. If you’re still struggling for ideas, here are some last minute Christmas gift ideas for students.

This is a classic and so easy to get your hands on. Everyone loves feeling pampered and there are hundreds of pre-made sets to choose from, whether it’s LUSH, The Body Shop or even TK Maxx.

If you’re feeling creative, you can buy individual products and put together a hamper of self-care items such as face masks and body butter and make it into a wonderful gift. You can even get really fancy with the presentation and wrapping.

Concert or theatre tickets

You can buy a ticket to a concert or theatre show from the comfort of your own home. Think of which artists the person you’re buying for likes and do some searching to see if they’re going on tour. Similarly, if they’re a fan of the theatre, there are always shows on and you can easily find some tickets.

A restaurant voucher

I’m sure the person you’re buying for has a favourite place to eat. You can buy a voucher online and present it to them in an envelope on Christmas day. It’s a thoughtful gift and means you get to spend some quality time together. You can then go with them for a meal, so it’s a win-win situation!

This one will be so much fun over Christmas! Polaroid cameras currently have next day delivery on Amazon so, if you order ASAP, it will be here in time for the big day. It’s a gift that most people would appreciate and great for making memories. If you’re really pushing the boat out you can get them an empty scrapbook to fill with all of the photos they take.

A subscription

This isn’t your typical gift but I don’t know why we don’t do it more! Why not pay for a subscription for something the person you’re buying for loves. It can be a streaming subscription such as Disney+ or Netflix, a book club subscription or a beauty box subscription. It’s a unique gift that no one else will have thought of.

These last minute Christmas gift ideas for students should ease your stress, while also giving you some time to relax in the buildup to the special day.
