Our recent alumni shared their thoughts on the best gifts for students studying abroad, and we compiled it into a study abroad gift guide just for you. Because we know preparing to study abroad has quite a few moving parts: booking your flight, applying for scholarships, asking LOTS of questions, preregistering for classes, and of course, packing for study abroad. Thankfully, you’ve got your study abroad office, your IES Abroad Advisor, and IES Abroad Ambassadors to help assist with most all of your preparations.
When it comes to packing (and shopping!) for study abroad, consider asking your friends and family to help by purchasing some of your needed travel items as birthday and holiday gifts. Not even sure what you'll all need? Gather some inspiration from these top recommended gifts for study abroad students.
