Basic Beauty Products

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a girl roommate, you can’t go wrong with some basic beauty products. A nice bubble bath or scented lotion is always a hit when given as a gift. If it’s a roommate that you really want to give something special to, create a little gift basket that’s loaded with goodies that are ideal for those high-stress college nights. Get a few of their favorite scented candles, some bubble bath, a face mask, and those fuzzy socks we all love to lounge in on our days off from school and work. You can count on any roommate loving this thoughtful gift basket.


If you’re looking for a quick and easy gift to give your roommate, you can’t go wrong with a gift card! While gift cards may seem like an impersonal gift to give someone, they’re the exact thing that so many people are hoping to receive during the holidays. These cards make it possible for someone to purchase the item that they actually wanted to get for themselves. Aside from stores or Amazon cards, you can also purchase gift cards from a local restaurant or coffee shop so that they can grab a bite to eat when they’ve got a busy schedule or a cup of coffee on their way to class. Trust us, this is a gift that everyone loves to get!

University of Akron Gear

One thing’s for sure, you can’t go wrong with University of Akron gear! Get the flashy t-shirts and cozy sweaters that are sure to be worn during Zips basketball or football games. You can find all sorts of apparel at the University of Akron bookstore or you can head on over to the University of Akron online shop for quick and easy merchandise and apparel. While you’re there, make sure to pick up a thing or two for mom and dad. They absolutely need to be showing off their Zips spirit!
