Back-to-school time is oh, so close, but rather than crying over the fact that you’re about to find yourself wondering what you’ve ever done to deserve an 8AM Monday class, spend your last days of freedom putting together an amazing survival kit that will have all of your friends mega jealous. Here are our top must-haves. You’re welcome.
Awesome Personal Speakers
Whether it’s just you watching a movie or you’ve got guests you really want to impress, great personal speakers are a must. This is an investment that will keep on giving, so we suggest going all out and getting THE best you can find. Like this ultra-portable Bluetooth speaker from Sony ($70) offering “featherweight sound with heavyweight punch featuring one-touch listening convenience, hands-free calling, and up to 12-hours battery life that’s always ready for the moment.”
Not only can you make all of your homies jealous, but you can also impress that special lady with an epic skateboard deck that’s a total conversation starter. We’ve got our eye on this Thor Hand x Marvel Comics skateboard deck by Santa Cruz ($82). 100% maple with medium concave, this deck is a limited edition piece celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Screaming Hand, so you best get your hands (feet?) on it quick.
Picture this: No matter where you find yourself, if you happen to have your USB thermoelectric cooler and warmer ($20) with you, you can plug it into your laptop and enjoy your beverage of choice like a total boss. Just be sure to keep a tight grip on it - you know everyone will want to steal it.
If you want all eyes on you at all times (which you obviously do), just rock an eye-catching (and hilarious) T-shirt from The Mountain Brand ($20). We highly recommend this one featuring President Abraham Lincoln riding a bear - Emancipate THIS! - and looking as badass as you will when you wear this bold shirt.
If you’re planning on throwing some parties during your semester (something tells us you are), you don’t want to be handing out plain, boring as hell shot glasses. No, you want to let people know you have major taste and style and these mini mason jars ($24) will make your secret hipster dreams come true.
