Exchanging gifts during the holidays can be one of the most stressful things about Christmas. Will they like it? How can I return this? The possible problems are endless. The CB Holiday Gift Guide is here to help you find the perfect gift for that special someone.
Here at CB, there are so many different types of people. From gamers to athletes, to theater kids to scholars, a specialized gift for each person will only make the holiday season more benevolent.
If you have a friend who is always late to school, like Demonte Robinson (‘22), then an alarm clock will for surely be their favorite gift. No more rushing to school, storming in the class in the middle of a lecture — they’d be right on time for prayer.
When asked how he would really feel about receiving the clock, Demonte stated “I mean it’s not my ideal gift, but I guess it’s practical”. Practicality is important too, right?
Shopping for your athlete friend can always be difficult. Do they want weights? Balls? Cleats? The options can go on and on. Playing it safe with a theragun will always do the trick for those active people.
Just think — this gift will not only help them, but you too. Once they start loosening up the muscles and stop the soreness, more potential time spent with you opens up. They will have no more excuses for needing rest or being hurt. Better get shopping!
Now, we have sort of a controversial topic. We have a love-hate relationship with these people: The Chatterboxes.
Sure, we love talking up a storm about last night’s game, but sometimes it’s time to focus on the work. You want to be nice and keep talking, but your 89% in that class can only go up if you focus on the class lecture. When the chatterbox is talking about Tom Brady’s amazing throw but Mrs. Hanshew is talking about James Madison writing the constitution, all of a sudden your notes write that James Madison threw a game winning touchdown in 1787. You definitely won’t be bringing that grade up.
A simple solution to this would be a roll of duct tape. Every time class begins, they can get out a small piece of tape — just enough to cover the mouth will do the trick. Duct tape comes in all colors and patterns, so make sure to get one they will love.
Next we have the type of person to forget their lunch. We all know that one person who scavenges off other people and somehow creates a whole lunch from others scraps. Here at CB, that person is Alicia Savala (‘22).
“I just wake up late and never have time to pack anything,” she laughs. “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.
To help a fella out, gifting them a Doordash gift card will satisfy their hunger needs. No more having to give up half your lunch out of pity — they can just order their food and have it brought to them. Now you will be the one scavenging, asking for a bite of their Chick-Fil-A sandwich…
Throughout your day in class, if you happen to come across a friend who repeatedly never has their homework done, it is in your hands to help them out.
A planner will change their life forever. They will learn how to be productive and prepared for class. You will no longer have to share your answers with them and rush as the teacher is collecting the assignment. The stress level in the class will drastically drop with them having a planner.
Here at CB there are so many different types of people and so many kinds of gifts to give. I hope this gave you some great ideas for the holidays. Merry Christmas!
