Do Not Disturb I’m Reading Socks
If you’ve been around university life, then you know how distracting it can be to the point where people will come and ask you what you’re doing. But this pair of original socks is a reminder that you are reading, and therefore should not be disturbed.

This is the perfect gift for when their last paper, exam, or thesis is finally completed. Then you can celebrate with a nice cup of coffee or tea, showing them how happy you are with their work and your support.

This is a perfect hoodie for the future graduate student to wear during the cold days walking from class to class and through campus. The comfortable hoodie allows you stay warm, yet look good in a stylish way.
Duramont Ergonomic Office Chair
The great thing about this office chair is that it’s adjustable to your needs so you can be as comfortable as possible as you work tirelessly on your dissertation or thesis. The back can be raised and lowered, along with the seat, to get in the most comfortable position possible while working on whatever project you’re doing at the time.
Anker Soundcore Life Q20 Hybrid Active Noise Cancelling Headphones
These noise-canceling headphones are ideal for busy individuals who need something to drown out their surroundings while they work, but still want the ability to hear important notifications from their phones. The earbuds allow for clear sound, and the noise cancellation feature can cut out annoying background noises so you can stay focused on your study.
Digital Voice Recorder Voice Activated Recorder with Playback
This digital voice recorder uses a built-in microphone to capture your notes, ideas, and conversations for later transcription and review.
The best part about this digital voice recorder is that it’s voice-activated. The digital recorder automatically saves audio files in MP3 format, which are easily transferred to your computer or other devices.
YETI Rambler 20 oz Tumbler
The YETI Rambler 20 oz Tumbler is a great gift for the graduate student who loves to drink cold beverages in between classes and project work. This tumbler is stainless steel, so it’s durable and resistant to rust. In addition to that, this tumbler fits into cup holders and comes with its own lid.
With these cufflinks, you’ll be able to show off your accomplishment at every occasion—from the boardroom to formal celebrations. These silver-plated cufflinks come with an engraving that says “PhD” and are guaranteed to put a smile on your face when you put them on! The ideal present for any student who’s just earned their doctorate degree.

A little bit extravagant, but this highly-functional notebook really makes the perfect gift for any academic (especially those in graduate school). With its leather cover, elastic closure, 240 ruled pages per side, and hardbound spine it’s designed to last through years of taking notes in tight lecture halls.

Classy and functional, this steel business card case is a great gift for anyone looking to keep their professional network in order. The black powder coating makes it resistant to the elements and won’t chip or peel like many other metal products.
VOBAGA Coffee Mug Warmer, 4 Hours Auto Shut Off
This gift is on the top of my list of ideas for PhD students because coffee is an excellent elixir that can remove stress and relax your mind. The problem is when you leave it on the table, you may come back to find that it’s cold or even worse – not there at all! This coffee mug warmer can help save your PhD student from such a fate.
SimpleHouseware Mesh Desk Organizer with Sliding Drawer
Like the one above, this simple yet useful gift is perfect for PhD students who have a mess of papers and files, but don’t want to lose or misplace them. This desk organizer has a sliding door that lets you see inside the drawer to find whatever academic material your student may be searching for.
COSSINI Premium Business Portfolio with Zipper
This is a very useful gift idea for PhD students because they need to take many notes and store them in a safe place. The portfolio itself is made of high-end PU leather, which makes its durability incredibly long lasting. You can also customize the inside of this portfolio with your own design. I think students would love a gift like this that can help organize all of their papers in one place.
Canon PIXMA TR4520 Wireless All in One Printer with Mobile Printing
A printer is one of the most essential devices to keep a PhD student properly organized while they’re going through their schooling process. This printer lets them print out papers and documents with no hassle or issues, even when it’s not connected to a computer or Wi-Fi.
Dry Erase Monthly Laminated Jumbo Whiteboard Calendar
A calendar is a staple in most people’s homes, but especially in the homes of many PhD students who are essentially pretty busy people. This dry erase calendar can be hung up so the PhD student can write notes, reminders, and other things on it that they want to remember. They can also use it to write out upcoming deadlines for projects, or meetings with professors or teachers.
JBL Tune 115TWS True Wireless in-Ear Headphones
A pair of headphones is something that most people can use. For PhD students especially, it’s important to be able to listen to music and other audio files as well as being able to answer phone calls without being encumbered by wires and cords. They’re very durable, have a long battery life, and work perfectly for just about any situation. Whether they’re studying or attempting to relax before a big test or exam, the headphones are the best way for them to do so.
