Good Luck In Your Exams Gift Ideas

Good Luck In Exams Gift Ideas
Ooh exams, we expect that you all have memories of how you felt about revising and going into your exams. The tense build up, the excitement of having ‘study periods’ instead of lessons and then the anxiety and anticipation of turning over the exam paper and finding out whether you’d revised enough.
We still have memories of the smell of the exam hall, the room so quiet that you could hear a pen drop and the tick tick tick of the clock counting away the seconds. Exams are possibly very different today but we anticipate that - as the time for GCSE, ‘A’ Level and Degree exams rapidly approaches - students will still be experiencing a mixture of pressure, stress, anticipation and anxiety, along with a mixture of high hopes, dread and expectation.


So, today we’re going to focus on gifts for exams - to say good luck in your exams, keep going with your revision, you’ve got this.

They’ve come through a lot to get here - from lockdowns, homeschooling, online classes, self-led study, interrupted learning, covid testing, covid and wearing face masks in school. What a very strange time to be a student.

We think they deserve a treat to keep them going and anticipate that you will think so too. So, we’ve looked through our gift selection at Box of Hugs and put together our top 10 gift ideas which could be included in a ‘Build Your Own’ Box of Hugs to send to your children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces, friends or anyone else who has exams coming up. Whether you want to put together a Revision Support Pack, Exam Survival Pack, a Good Luck in Your Exams gift box, a You’ve Got This gift box or something else for them, we think we’ve got you covered.

Our top 10 gift ideas to say good luck  (…in no particular order):



- who doesn’t love sweets. If we were putting a box together for ourselves or for our kids we’d definitely be including sweets.

- another must in our books . Choose from our lovely selection of chocolate bars to suit all tastes including a vegan option.

- we can’t put a box together for our family and friends without adding biscuits. Packs of biscuits are great to share with a study group too. We love Cartwright & Butler biscuits but there's lots of choice.

- we love cheese biscuits so we think that adding cheese straws or crackers to a gift box brings a delicious savoury twist.

- studying and revising requires something soothing to wind down at the end of the day, choose from tea, coffee, hot chocolate, how about a bottle of fizz to enjoy once the exams are over? Add a mug for an extra hug.
