Must Have Gadgets For Students

5 March 2021

At Novel Student, we are all about making life easier for students, so we have rounded up our most popular student gadgets!

From key finders to study essentials, we can promise these items are going to change your University experience – you won’t know how you went without them before!


Coffee on the go

We know how important it is that you get your coffee fix, especially on those long study packed days! At Novel Student you can grab a free coffee whenever you like, and so we recommend investing in a sustainable coffee cup, and we have just the one for you.

Stojo’s compact coffee cups are collapsible (great to fit in your busy student bag), leak and PBA-free – the world’s safest silicon cup!

They come in a range of stylish colours and sizes, making it easy for you to bring your own reusable, whether it be a hot or cold!

Not only that but Stojo is a company committed to designing earth-conscious, sustainable products, a cause we admire at Novel Student!

Top fact – Every year, 1 Stojo Cup saves 23 lbs of greenhouse gas emissions and 16 lbs of waste.

Join the reusable revolution, shop Stojo here.

Never lose your keys again

Nothing is more frustrating than being in a rush and not being able to find your belongings – anyone else realised that this always happens at the most inconvenient times?!

Tile Bluetooth trackers help you find your keys, wallet, phone and everything that matters. You can attach the small tile device to your belongings and with a click and look at your app, you can find where you misplaced your items (as long as you are within a range of 200ft).

You can join the world’s largest lost and found community by grabbing one of these bargains for only £19.99 or you can get 4 for £60 (if you are a serial lost property member!).

The official Summer party starter – JBL

At Novel Student, we completely support a study-life balance and University is THE place to have fun, go out and meet new people!

So, turn it up and take control of your Summer party with a JBL portable Bluetooth speaker! This speaker is a must have nifty, waterproof, portable, and most importantly LOUD gadget.

Bringing the tunes to a party or need some good music before going out out? This speaker will play for up to five hours before needing a disco nap and recharge and it’s only £35, so we guarantee you will get your money’s worth!

Calling all smoothie lovers!

Never be without a portable blender again – I know, a bit of a rogue idea but trust us with this!

This blender is perfect for on-the-go nutritious smoothies, protein shakes, last minute meals and it can even crush ice, so bring on the Mojitos!

Also, USB charged, this blender will make up to 8 beverages in one go! It’s available in lots of colours and is also super lightweight (we already know you will be carrying a laptop and plenty of books).

Capture the moments

We are huge fans of Instax cameras and we recently gave one away on our Instagram account, make sure you follow us here to win other cool stuff!

Anyway, this camera is super lightweight and can fit in even the smallest of bags. It produces instant pictures so you can capture those special university memories and put them up on your peg boards in your Novel room.

And, of course, with the little mirror on the front you can still get those all-important selfies!

Keep your memories forever here.
