12 Perfect Roommate Gifts for Her Under $10 -- the perfect roommate gifts for less than $10, perfect for a college student budget!

In August I shared a great dorm room checklist for ensuring your freshman was ready for her first day of college. Among the list was an Amazon Prime Student membership because at half the price of your typical Amazon Prime (plus the first 6 months free), it’s a must. Not only is it a great way to make sure your college student doesn’t go without the necessities (i.e., poster putty, dry shampoo, Febreze), it’s also chock full of so many benefits, it’s nearly impossible to get your head around it all.

But before we get to the knock-your-socks-off new features, let’s talk about what college students should really use Prime Student for:

Roommate gifts.

My daughter recently used her Prime Student account to order the perfect roommate gift—a pair of onion goggles. Not lying. Her roommate loves cooking with onions but found herself crying every time she had to chop them. Madison solved that problem by gifting her a highly-reviewed pair of onion goggles. They’ve been besties ever since.

Those onion goggles inspired me to work with her to create a list of 10 roommate gifts under $10…and they truly are under $10 because you’ve got that awesome free two-day shipping with Prime Student.

If you sign up your college student for Amazon Prime Student, not only can she give the perfect roommate gifts, but she’ll get that life-changing, free two-day shipping plus exclusive college deals, unlimited streaming of tens of thousands of movies and TV shows (thank you, Prime Video). But wait, that’s not all!

Queue the Price is Right emcee.

She’ll also get a ton of new benefits. The latest and greatest from Amazon Prime Student can be summed up in three words: gaming, listening and reading.

  • Gaming: Twitch Prime offers free game content every month plus exclusive discounts and other benefits. Gamers can take advantage of member exclusive discounts on new release and pre-order boxed video games. When you’re not hitting the books you can hit the characters, vehicles, skins, and boosts for top games on Twitch plus perks like full indie games and exclusive loot.
  • Listening: Heard of Audible? We’re Audible fans, which makes this new feature extra awesome. Audible Channels features original programs, comedy, lectures, and audio editions of standout articles from The Wall Street Journal to The Onion—and Prime Student members get unlimited listening. Audible is a great way to get inspired (TED talks) and decompress (comedy).
  • Reading: College reading doesn’t have to be all textbooks. With Prime Reading, you’ll get unlimited reading on any device. That means unlimited access to over a thousand books, current issue magazines, comics, Kindle Singles, and more.
