To make your life easier, here’s a gift guide that your Northwestern friend(s) from are sure to love, customized for them by school:

MEDILL — “Write More Good: An Absolutely Phony Guide” — $10.40

WEINBERG — Coffee Mug — $18.50

Weinberg students account for the majority of Northwestern undergraduates, most of whom are, have been or considered declaring pre-med at some point. Serve them up some vital caffeine in this coffee mug which will haunt them with memories of failed orgo midterms.

MCCORMICK — Mathematics Math Chalkboard Chalk Clock — $30

Get this unique clock for your engineering friends. Most likely, they are math nerds and will appreciate the fun that goes into customizing the clock! It works as a cool apartment accessory or, equally as practically, as a tool to help them memorize those pesky equations.

SESP — Lemon Tea Candle– $12.00

SESP is filled with people who want to make a change in the world. So for the holiday season, give your SESP friends something that quite literally lights up their lives and the lives of others.

COMMUNICATION — Music Box Theatre Subscription — $50

The Music Box Theatre, located at 3733 N Southport Ave. in Chicago, is a venue in the city that shows independent, foreign, cult and classic films. A year-long season subscription, though a little pricey, is perfect for your Communication friends who are movie fanatics. It also gives them a fun reason to get off of campus and into Chicago.
