Gifts That Are Perfect for Your Roommate

With Christmas just around the corner, it’s crunch time for finding the perfect gift. It’s hard to find that special something that everyone on your list would love to have and the last thing you want to hear is the dreadful, awkward, drawn-out “Thank you…” as soon as someone opens your gift. The best way to find a good gift is to do your research. Think about what the person likes, what they do, and how they spend their free time. To get you started, here are a few gift ideas

Healthy Food Subscription

Food subscriptions offer healthy meal options that are perfect for someone who’s always on the go. Finding new food ideas on the internet seems impossible when you’re working, going to school, or both. Food subscriptions are great for one or two people because they aren’t costly and you pay per meal or box. If you’re looking for a gift that both you and your roommate can enjoy, this may be an exceptional option.

Artisan Teas

Who doesn’t love trying new warm tasty flavored beverages? Artisan teas not only taste great, but they also have a therapeutic effect and can calm ailments. If your roommate is suffering from nausea, ginger, turmeric, and peppermint tea can bring some relief without putting you to sleep. Bring warmth to your mind body and soul on a cold day when you’re sitting in the living room studying, watching TV or reading a book, give the gift of artisan tea.


Journaling has been proven to relieve stress and help you bring your thoughts together. There are various types of journals including dream diaries and even art journals. Try giving your roommate the gift of art therapy by giving them an art journal. These books encourage drawing for leisure and allow artists to draw their feelings. Don’t worry about being creative because some of the folios have prompts for when you are stumped on what to draw.

Therapeutic CBD Edibles

If you’re looking for a healthy treat for your roommate try cbd oil edibles. CBD oil is extracted from the hemp plant and is considered non-intoxicating. You can enjoy eating products containing CBD oil to reap the benefits of the hemp plants while being in the right state of mind to focus on your daily activities. Therapeutic CBD edibles are tasty and healthy treats that can be consumed at any time of the day!


If your roommate is an insomniac and has tried everything to fall asleep get them a
Dodow. Dodow was designed by insomniacs and helps slow breathing down using a projected light to help you fall asleep faster.

Wake Up Light Alarm Clock

Waking up from a deep sleep may tempt you to hit that snooze button on the alarm. The Wake-Up Light Alarm Clock simulates natural light that enables the user and possibly others in the room to wake up with the Sun as they did before technology.


Ibi is a device that allows you to store your photos and videos in a cloud. What sets ibi aside from other devices, is the fact that you do not have to pay a monthly fee to use their services. With ibi your roommate can store as many photos as he or she would like without worrying about hackers or running out of space.

VR Headset

VR Headsets are the future of video games and even medicine. VR headsets are being used for the treatment of PTSD and even for stroke victims. Strokes damage the brain but the brain is so miraculous it can use normal cells with different functions to re-learn how to move body parts. Aside from the feeling of being in a different world from your couch, there is a lot you can do with VR headsets.

Gifting can be exhausting. It’s definitely the thought that counts but it is nice to hear the squeal of excitement and see smiling faces when they open their presents knowing it is from you.
