Gifts for your list:

Indoor plants: Aloe, ivy, jade, and ficus are easy indoor plants that you can brighten your workspace during your homework sessions. Good luck wrapping (or unwrapping) this gift.
Headphones that cancel background noise: Noise canceling headphones are great for online students. They help you focus when your family when your family watching TV or playing games.
Wireless printer: The less cords coming out of your tablet or laptop the better.
Campfire solid mug: If coffee, tea, or cocoa are your go-to study fuel, this is the gift for you!
