Show the roomie some love with these 10 holiday present ideas.
1. Candle Warmer
This sweet-smelling gift is perfect for dorm rooms where candles are a no-no. Candle warmers just melt perfumed wax that come in many different scents.
2. Bath bombs
This gift might be better for those who live off campus. Place a bath bomb in a tub and watch the magic happen. There are different types, but bath bombs can color and add a scent to bath water or make it fizz.
3. Witty Mug
Treat a coffee or hot chocolate lover to a cute mug. There are mugs with enough different sayings and pictures to fit anyone’s personality.
Find one at: Etsy
4. A cozy blanket
Sometimes dorms and apartments can get drafty, so why not buy a warm blanket? Make sure to snag one that matches the décor.
5. A scarf
Winter weather calls for scarves—making it a practical and fashionable roomie gift.
6. Portable Ping Pong Set
Dorm rooms can’t accommodate for regular ping pong tables and that’s why the portable ping pong set is a good Holiday gift. They don’t take up too much room, so you can store them easily, too.
Find one at: Dick's Sporting Goods for around $19.99.
7. R2D2 Measuring Cup Set
Make cooking fun with this Star Wars R2D2 figure made out of measuring cups.
Find one at: ThinkGeek.com for $19.99
8. Gentleman’s Deck of Cards
These are normal playing cards with a twist. Each card has a ‘gentlemanly’ message on it like instructions on how to enjoy a cigar.
Find one at: CoolMaterial.com for $14.95
9. Paddle Your Own Canoe by Nick Offerman
Try giving the roommate this funny book by the man who played Ron Swanson on “Parks and Recreation.”
Find one at: Walmart and other book retailers.
10. Ball State Apparel
Sometimes the best gifts are nearby: buy a Ball State hoodie or Christmas sweater. A Cardinal can never have enough t-shirts either, right?
Find one at: TIS or the Ball State Bookstore.
