The holiday season is a stressful time for many. A lot of people are shopping for gifts, but people many have no idea where to start looking.

With Christmas coming soon, you need to get gifts soon even though you may have no feeling for what to buy.

Here are some students tips for giving gifts.

Give gifts you can use together

Matthew Ehrmantraut, freshman, usually buys video games for his friends on Steam.

“We can play them together, so it’s more fun,” Ehrmantraut said.

As for buying gifts for people, Ehrmantraut said to get to “know a lot about the person before you start shopping. Besides that, just go with your heart.”

Don’t worry about the price

Shelby Burts, senior, thinks meaningful gifts are more enjoyable than expensive ones.

“It’s the thought that counts,” Burts said. “Not the price.”

She also suggests buying gift cards.

“You know the person is getting the right gift,” Burts said.

Put a lot of thought into it

Sophomore Brooke McCulley buys things like clothes and jewelry for her close friends.

“They like getting things that were thought about beforehand,” McCulley said.

When it comes to giving gifts, McCulley puts a lot of thought into it.

“You should think about the person, because sometimes they won’t like the present you give them.”

Just give money

Jonathan Summers, senior, doesn’t like the elaborateness of gift giving.

“Just give money. Don’t risk giving them something they don’t want,” Summers said.

Summers also includes the receipt in his gifts that are not money. He said gift receivers can return them if they would like.

“I don’t get mad when people don’t like my gift. I’m not them,” Summers said.

Follow these simple tips, and you may find that your holiday season is a little more stress free.
