Missed a birthday? Too late for Christmas? Not able to make it for Valentine’s Day? Got a student in your life you need to appreciate? While this post is actually late, one can still give gifts that can be used throughout the year–especially when the recipient is a student!
This post was inspired by a memory in law school: it was the season for class Christmas parties and exchanging gifts. One of my classmates played it safe and included a wishlist (I kid you not) along with the slip of paper where her “code name” was scribbled. Her list included:
Post-Its (five pieces, the long yellow ones)
Pilot G-Tech pens (0.3/0.4)–black, blue and red: TWO OF EACH
Stabilo Boss Highlighters (Blue, Yellow, Pink, Orange, Green–AGAIN, TWO OF EACH)
Index cards, both sides unruled; 100 pieces.
1 ten piece set of Staedtler Fineliner pens
Okay, I can go on all afternoon! But at least you get the gist. The funny thing was, she wasn’t alone where wishlists were concerned. A few classmates even ventured as far as including codal books (pocket Bible-sized books of unannotated laws–codes, they are usually called. This is what they look like:
And they’re pretty much the Bible of every Filipino law student (Sorry, God!). We were all required to master each and every word of the law, memorising and chanting it even in our sleep if need be.
Okay, I digress.
Going back to the business of gift-giving (ha!), the student in your life deserves your tender loving care by giving them stuff they can really appreciate and use. While flowers and candies are a sweet gesture, wouldn’t it be sweeter if they use your gift and think of you while doing so? *winkwink* So what can you give them?
