Christmas is a time to disconnect from work, catch up with family, sleep in, watch the season's most anticipated movies and Netflix's newest offerings (can you say, Maniac!), (over)eat good food and, yes, sleep it off. It's also a great opportunity to hit the slopes or get out of town, if you can manage it. But despite these seemingly ideal conditions, the holidays are not all reindeer and fruitcake — the stress of holiday season gift shopping can take a serious toll. Never fear though, whether you are looking for the perfect stocking stuffers for men or need unique Christmas gift ideas, we're here to help.

In my unscientific but thorough survey of gift ideas for college students, I would say some 94.8 percent of all college students have, at some point, either received a copy of Dr. Seuss’s Oh, The Places You’ll Go or had it quoted at them. It’s a classic read, but as far as gifts for college students go, it’s clichéd — and you can give a practical, useful, and unique gift to a college student that’s better than that. To make things a little easier, I spoke with actual college students about the most memorable gifts they’ve ever received, the gear and gadgets they use every day, and the items on their wish lists to find the best gifts for college freshmen, gifts for college graduates, and all the students in between.

Did you ever want to own a piece of living sports history but felt weird putting, say, a goalpost in your home? The good people at Tokens & Icons have tackled this conundrum head on, by repurposing game-worn uniforms, parts of vintage arenas and old baseballs, footballs and other gear used in classic games into wallets, watches and other practical, wearable items. It's cool, it's eco-friendly, it's the football from Super Bowl XLVI turned into cuff links!

The term “sports fan” does not solely apply to couch jockeys. There are plenty of fans that like to spend a little time on the court.

And once you’re done shooting, you can just take it home with you.

Introduce him to the aerial photography craze with our huge selection of drones. Maybe he's more of a hands-on adventurer who'd enjoy capturing his exploits on an action cam. Or perhaps he's a pragmatist who likes to have information at his fingertips, in which case wearables like smartwatches and activity trackers could be right up his alley. While we can show you the best gifts for men based on our expertise, you're the one who knows the guy you're shopping for and what will make him happy.
After graduation, you enter the "real world" and the real world will include putting together furniture, Googling how to fix leaky faucets when your landlord avoids your calls, and enticing your friends to help you mount your living room TV with pizza.

He'll be glad he has the tools to handle whatever life throws at him confidently, and this is one gift he may not immediately buy for himself, but which you really want to have before the very second you need it. Thoughtful and useful.

If he's constantly searching for his keys or wallet, he'll get a kick out of the Tile.

No sport mingles triumph and tragedy with quite the discomfiting ease of boxing, and no documentary has better captured that duality than Ron Berger's 2005 film about the life and career of former welterweight great Emile Griffith.

Graduates are bound to be excited about the end of classes, but learning can actually be a lot of fun when it's self-directed and at their leisure.

Christine Evans, who’s studying fashion at Parsons School of Design, has been coveting a Burberry rain jacket for years. “Truthfully, my dad has always always worn one since I was little and I’ve always admired it.

He said that when I’m older, he would get me one when the time was right!” And graduation seems like as good a milestone as any.

“Wedding registry–type things make sense,” adds Cassidy Olsen, another soon-to-be graduate of Tufts, “because a lot of us are moving into places for the first time permanently. I know nothing about glassware, so I couldn’t say what glassware, but a combo of drinking glasses and wine glasses would be good.” We here at the Strategist love the Bormioli Rocco Bodega short tumblers, which do double duty as wine glasses and drinkware.
