A tool to help them find their car keys on hectic mornings.

Many of our graduate students are juggling school, work and families — so it’s no wonder mornings can get a little hectic. Help them get out the door faster with a Tile Mate. It’s a small device that can help them find their car keys, wallet or phone when rushing out the door.

A reMarkable Tablet

A reMarkable tablet allows students to take handwritten notes and convert them into text! It makes it easier to share notes, keep yourself organized and stay on top of studying. It’s a great tool that they can use through graduate school and beyond.

Air Fryer

A speedy, no-hassle dinner is a must when you have classwork to do. An air fryer can help your graduate student make healthy at-home meals without having to preheat the oven or watch over the stove. Just add some frozen fish or fries and go work for twenty minutes until it’s done!

You can get air fryers in a variety of colors and sizes. Choose a smaller air fryer for students who live alone and bigger models for those that are cooking for their families.

One-Year Subscription to their Favorite Service

For many, graduate school means cutting back on spending, including cancelling unnecessary subscriptions. Treat your graduate student to their favorite subscription, whether it’s Netflix, Amazon Prime, Spotify or Disney+.

You can even get a yearly subscription service for coffee or tea delivery.

Noise-Cancelling Headphones

Help them drown out the noise during study time. Whether they’re trying to drown out the noise of kids watching cartoons or their spouse making dinner, a good set of noise-cancelling headphones can help them focus on their schoolwork and ace all of their assignments.
