Gifts for the workaholic

Online school will most likely be a reality for students next year (or more!), so why use this Christmas to gift them some equipment that will make it more enjoyable? Please notes that all the prices listed are in CAD

Slippers (USA, CAN) - between $25 - $56

A must to stay warm while watching online lectures!


Starbucks gift card - ~$20

For the days they’ll need a little pick me up. No problem if you can’t give it to them physically: there are options to send it by email or even by iMessage!

Pastel highlighters (USA, CAN) - $14

Their notes will be so beautiful it’ll make them want to study!


Snack basket care package (Build a SmartSweets box or this junk food basket) - ~$50 (cheaper if you make it yourself)

These are a life saver for late night study sessions! You can choose to either make your own or buy a pre-made one like the one I linked. I thought I’d introduce SmartSweets since I just discovered it and I think it’s the coolest thing. It’s a healthy alternative to traditional candies as Smartsweet candies have no added sugar and artificial sweetners, no gmo and it containes plant-based fiber! Oh and it’s a female owned business.

Blue light glasses (USA, CAN) - $30

This is essential for online school students as they stare at screens all day! Blue light glasses help me avoid headaches and sleep better after a day of staring at my computer.

I bought this for my sister last Christmas and she has been living in it ever since! This is the best study companion.
