  • HDMI to DVI Cable

    As simple as it seems, a HDMI to DVI cable is a cheap but useful gift to give a student, allowing them to hook up devices including laptops and TVs to watch movies with their dormmates.  

    Price: $1 - $10

  • Empty Bottle with Cork USB Drive

    When you're rushing up to the library in a panic to print out the essay due for submission in less than an hour, a portable USB thumb drive is a handy tool for a student to possess. There are thousands on the market, but I like this unusual design -- perfect for sticking on a desk so you don't lose it so easily. 

    The USB drive is available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB versions. 

    Price: $19.99 - $36.99

  • Hand painted canvas iPhone 5 cases

    With designs ranging from Edvard Munch's "The Scream" to Van Gogh's "Starry Night," these hand painted iPhone 5 cases are a sure bet for an arty student. Each lightweight, fabric cover is partially handpainted -- so the design sticks out, but they will not scratch or wear down easily. 

    Price: £29.99 ($46)
