1. Cosmic Gel Pen
You’re going to need to take some notes in that lecture, and a snazzy pen is always handy to have even if you usually use a laptop. We wouldn’t recommend lending these ones to anyone though, they’re too pretty and you might not get it back!
2. A5 Geometric Pattern Notebooks
These minimalist handmade notebooks can be bought individually or together, and you can specify lined or unlined paper, perfect for note-taking, sketching or doodling.
3. T-Rex Makeup bag or Pencil Case
You’ll need something to store those pens and pencils in, and this T-Rex holding a pineapple looks like the perfect dinosaur for the job.
4. Palm Tree WeekLy planner
This desk planner has a sheet for each week, so you can fill them in then rip them off at the end of the week. A great way of organising all those socials, sports and society events. And your lecture too, I suppose!
5. Wall planner
Little planners are great for day to day events, but keeping on top of all the events of a whole uni year requires some hard-core organisation. This wall planner will solve all those problems - use highlighter or stickers to mark out big deadlines, exam periods and trips away. Don’t worry, you’ve got this.
6. Flamingo sleep mask
Being a student is tough work, what with all the all-nighters in the library and reading everything on your reading list well within time. Ok, it’s more likely to be all-nighters in the student union bar, and Netflix binges into the early hours of the morning, but either way we bet you’ll need a nap or two when it’s light outside, which is where this mask will come in handy.
7. Do not disturb sign
And just to let your nosy flatmates know that you’re basically sleeping beauty, a gentle reminder.
8. Planner stickers
Planner stickers! For attempting to be the most organised student that ever lived.
9. Travel card holder
Whether you live in London or not, a decent card holder is invaluable for those times your fancy dress outfit wouldn’t look good with a bag, or you only need to take your ID and bank card with you. With contactless basically everywhere now, carrying chunky purses and wallets full of small change is a thing of the past.
10. Reusable lunch bag
This awesome lunch bag is good for the environment and useful too! Start making your lunches and save money, and look cool with this washable paper lunch bag too.
