Holiday Gift Guide: Grad School Edition

2014 Holiday Gift Guide (2)

The holidays are here! I hope you have some time to relax this holiday season, and that you get the chance to spend some quality time with friends and family. It’s time for a much-needed and well-deserved break.

With projects, final exams, work, and internships, you probably haven’t had a chance to give much thought to gifts – for friends, family, or yourself. Luckily, we are here to help.

Browse our list of recommended gifts, and find something unique for each of your friends (and maybe a little something for yourself). If you don’t have the time or budget to shop this year, just remember – a nice card or batch of homemade cookies always does the trick. Always.

Happy Holidays!
