College textbooks are so expensive they’ll appreciate it and so will their parents…

If you’re still struggling with a gift for a college-bound student, fret no more.  My suggestion is that you give the student the gift of a textbook or two.  When they’re going into sticker shock at the bookstore counter, they’ll appreciate you.

Here are some options:Textbooks Image

1. Buy a gift card or certificate from a major textbook distributor:

Barnes and Noble

2. Give them money in gift card form:

VISA or American Express Gift Card.

3. Give the parents money to add to their student ID cards (I’m pretty sure schools still do this, but I admit that I’m a little removed).

My advice in this case is that you don’t give less than $50.  It’s hard to find books cheaper than that.
