College students are juggling multiple projects, extracurriculars, exams, jobs and internships, and social life. They deserve a much-needed break, but a useful present wouldn’t be so bad either. Whether they’re an incoming freshman or a senior embarking on their last university adventure, college students deserve a gift that will bring them joy. From the coolest tech on the market to self-care finds, we’ve rounded up the best gifts you can give the college student in your life.

We even included some fun finds like a home-theater projector set they can use in their dorm, a pair of adorable heated slippers to keep their feet warm, and even a smart water bottle that will keep track of their water intake and remind them to stay hydrated.
