CampusRiot Holiday Gift Guide For The Ultimate Party Animal

Not sure what to get your college- age friends and family members?  Chances are, if you know a college student, they probably drink a lot.  Getting actual alcohol as a gift is always nice, but it goes away so quickly, and all you are left with is an empty bottle.  Any real party animal loves a good drinking accessory.  Be it a new drinking came or a cool gadget to make the next party they host even more awesome, there are plenty of cool gifts out there for all of the party animals on your list.  Here are some of our favorite gifts for party people:

“I have a drinking problem” iPhone case | Cafe press – $12.99

I have a drinking problem phone case

Any party girl needs a cool iPhone case to set hers apart from the crowd of iphones present at any college party, and this is a pretty funny one. Also, the two hands one mouth problem is such a struggle, but I guess we would look weird with 2 mouths.  If you are into the whole punny drinking slogan idea, cafe press has tons of stuff, from t-shirts to candle holders.

Bottle Belts | Etsy – $36

Bottle belts

In order to be a party animal, you have to be able to get alcohol to the party, right?  These straps are great for anyone who travels by bike, because you can secure a bottle to your bicycle, and not have to worry about dropping it or weighing down your backpack, strapping a bottle to your bike frees up some space in the bag for more beer.  It is also functional beyond drinking season, because you can use the straps to secure anything cylindrical, like a rolled up towel for the beach.

Nautilus smartphone amplifier | Simply Amplified – $185
