Cheap Gifts For College Students Under $20:
1. NBA 2K20
Boys and their video games; if you have ever been to a college guys dorm/ apartment, you've probably seen their "collection" of video game equipment.
If you know he plays video games, then you can't go wrong with this gift!
2. AirPods Case
If he has AirPods, then the chances he has mixed his up with somebody else's are very likely!
Gifting him a simple black case will make his life so much easier, and make his AirPods look a bit cooler.
4. Yeti Drink Insulator
It's not a secret that college boys love their beer. What they don't love is warm beer (however, that doesn't keep them from drinking it lol), which is why this Yeti Insulator is perfect - keeps the beer cool forever!
5. Laptop Case
College consists of aggressively throwing your laptop in and out of your backpack, on tables, couches, etc. I honestly do not even know how it's possible to not get scratches on your laptop if you don't use a case. Everyone needs a case, which makes it the perfect gift!
From clear to black to bright blue cases, there's one for every guy and for real everyone needs a laptop case!
6. Wool Socks
Wool socks are a game-changer and are a necessity for anyone who goes to school in colder climates!
7. Portable Charger
A portable charger is a great gift for the guys that are out and about in classes every day. Phones are bound to run out of batteries, and having a charger is insanely useful, any guy will love it!
8. Thermal Knit Gloves
As I said before, if he goes to school in a colder climate, then having a nice pair of gloves is essential! This specific pair allows you to type on your phone as well.
Who doesn't love a pair of comfy joggers? They're insanely comfy and perfect for college.
10. Leather Belt
Leather belts are great, from casual days to formal occasions. If they don't have a nice leather belt now, they will need to get one soon for interviews, formals, etc.!

33. Suitcase with USB Charging Port
College is all about traveling to-and-from somewhere, whether that's home or visiting friends, this carry-on luggage suitcase is amazing.
The charging port is perfect for those long travel days in the airport, car, or bus. Everyone needs a suitcase, so you just can't go wrong!
34. Tempur-Pedic Mattress Topper
A Tempur-Pedic mattress topper is one of my favorite gift ideas; this is a gift everyone will love, yet completely not expect.
A comfy bed without a mattress topper in college is hard to come by, which makes this gift even better!
Life is just better in college if you can have AirPods; college students are out and about, going from point A to B, and the wires on headphones get caught on everything!
Having wireless headphones makes life easier.
