IET Holiday Gift Guide

Shopping for middle and high school students can be difficult since it can be difficult to know what’s still “in” or not, and shopping for college students can be equally as impossible, especially because sometimes they aren’t living at home anymore.

IET is here to help! We’ve asked our students, friends and family what some of the gifts they’d love to see under their tree this year, and of course added a few of our favorite “wholistic” style options as well. We love their suggestions and hope you will too.

Portable Charger

Anker [Upgraded to 6700mAh] Astro E1 Candy-Bar Sized Ultra Compact Portable Charger, External Battery Power Bank, with High-Speed Charging PowerIQ Technology

This highly rated portable charger is a perfect stocking stuffer for any student with a phone. If they leave for school events, sleepovers, etc. it’s nice to know that you won’t have to worry about

Apple Air Pods

While this is a pricer item on the list, it’s sure to be a hit. These headphones are wireless, and the sound is amazing. Great for any students who hit the gym, hike, etc. No more time wasted trying to untangle headphones.

Pro Tip: We’ve tried all of the Amazon dupes for wireless headphones and unfortunately none compare.


We use these frequently at IET and have seen a ton of success when it comes to helping alleviate common issues. This is a great gift for a soon-to-be college student who needs help focusing, anyone with allergies, those with sleep issues, etc. Our favorite oils are Lavender (calming and good as a first aid for burns), Peppermint (good for memory), and Orange (uplifting).

Phillips Light Up Alarm Clock

A perfect gift for those students who have trouble waking up for school!

“ 92% of Users Agree That it is Easier to Get Out of Bed

The Philips wake-up light is scientifically proven to work. Clinical research was conducted by independent science facilities to study and prove the effects of the wake-up light on the overall wake up experience. The Philips Wake-up Light not only wakes you more naturally, but also more energized and improves your mood in the morning.”


Those who are among younger generations are seemingly more aware of environmental issues. A Hydroflask is a great quality gift for a student who has an interest in eco-friendly products.

We hope you found this list helpful, and of course, please let us know if we missed anything!
