Valentine Gifts For College Students

College students work hard and we want to encourage them to keep on keeping on! Sending a package is a great way to warm their hearts and give them a little reprieve from their studies. My daughter, Justine, is currently a senior in college and has shared these Valentine Gifts For College Students ideas.

Chocolate Box

Nothing screams Valentine’s Day like chocolate. A chocolate box provides a lot of delicious chocolate in all shapes and sizes. What more could you want?


Of course this one comes with some age restrictions. Wine is another classic Valentine gift. If you don’t want to get a bottle of wine, you can also get creative with a wine related gift. This set from Amazon is perfect for any wine lover. It comes with an electric wine bottle opener, an aerator, wine preserver, foil cutter, and bottle stoppers.

Face Masks

Face masks are a great Valentine’s gift that’s perfect for relaxation and de-stressing. They’re great for any self-care regimen. When college gets stressful (lets be real, when is it not?), your college student can use face masks for stress relief.


This one may not be for everyone. If you know that your college student is book-adverse you can skip this recommendation. If your college student does love books though, giving them one or two for Valentine’s Day is a perfect gift.

Cute PJ Set

It’s always great getting a new set of PJ’s. This set is both cute and comfy, and can even be used for lounging around.

Favorite Make-Up Product

For the college students who wear make-up, it makes a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. It can be expensive, and always appreciated when its given as a gift, especially for broke college students.

Favorite Candy

Although chocolate is the classic Valentine’s gift, any candy would be a great gift. If your college student loves a variety of candy, a candy variety pack would be perfect as a gift.

Coffee Gift Card

College students run on coffee. Caffeine is what gets them through the day. However, it’s an expensive habit to keep up. A gift card can go a long way, helping your student keep their caffeine consumption strong while not hurting the bank.


For the jewelry loving college students, jewelry is a great gift for Valentine’s Day. A lot of jewelry is expensive, but there are plenty options out there that are affordable, too. This bracelet is under $50, simple but very cute.

Delivery App Gift Card

Let’s be real, most college students do not take the time to cook for themselves. Fast-food and delivery services are a go to. Services like DoorDash and UberEats are really popular. These services also have gift cards available to purchase. Getting your college student a gift card so they can deliver the meal of their dreams will leave them very thankful.

Favorite Tea or Coffee

Tea and coffee are incredibly popular drinks. Most college students like at least one or both. For Valentine’s, giving your student tea or coffee can go a long way. It’ll bring some enjoyment into their everyday life.

Coloring Book

Coloring books are not just for kids. They are a great stress reliever for any adult, specifically stressed out college students. A great gift and perfect for any study break.

Now that you know WHAT Valentine gifts for college students you want to send to your student, be sure to send it in a box dressed for the occasion!
