We've trawled through Etsy to bring you a plethora of perfect items that will make your uni life go that little bit smoother.

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!

Cosmic Gel Pen, £1.50

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.

A5 Geometric Pattern Notebooks, £5

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.

T-Rex Makeup Bag or Pencil Case, £11.60

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!

Palm Tree Tropical A4 Weekly Planner, £10

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.

'You've Got This' Wall Planner, £10.50

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.

Flamingo Sleep Mask, £10

7. Do not disturb sign

And just to let your nosy flatmates know that you’re basically sleeping beauty, a gentle reminder.

Do Not Disturb Sign, £5.50

28 Student Flags/Planner Stickers, £2.25

9. Travel card holder

With contactless basically everywhere now, carrying chunky purses and wallets full of small change is a thing of the past.
