Admit it, you're all suckers for cute little things to pretty up your study space, whether or not they served the purpose they were purchased for anyway. Mom also wouldn't say no to stocking up on college stationery, so it's all right to keep clicking and adding items to the cart—because ain’t no one there to stop you!

Here’s a list of all the cool stationery items you need to get your hands on before college starts—that could possibly earn you the title of being the ‘cool kid’ in class, but who’s complaining?
 

Pen drives

Pen drives

These are the coolest gizmos. Whether you use them for transferring study material or the latest season of Game of Thrones is another story, but pen drives are as essential as carrying textbooks to class.

 

Laptop covers

Laptop covers

Sleeves and covers may serve as protection guards but you know too well how essential an accessory they make to complement your outfits. This stationery item is where functionality merges with style.

 

Headphones

Headphones

Another statement gadget that comes to your rescue during that free lecture, a long train journey or time in the cafeteria.

 

Bookmarks

Bookmarks

Speaking of little things that go a long way, bookmarks are a good addition. Only thinking about the time saved in hunting down important pages and not having anymore of those ugly dog ears gives you inner peace.

 

Post-its

Post-its

Absolute must-haves for the forgetful ones and those with a low attention span. Write it down! Use different colours to spruce things up but don't not add to cart. Post-its also help in remembering important pointers while studying, so stock up!

 

Notebooks

Notebooks

Chances are not all classes would permit notes being taken down on computers. You will need a pen and a notebook to scribble (doodle) on. So pick a pretty one—to make up for the not-so-pretty handwriting inside.

 

Highlighters

Highlighters

While pens and sketch pens are obvious college supplies (thanks to mom), highlighters are what we'd bank on for fun. You'll soon find how addictive it can get to colour code your textbooks, but all’s well as they help make study time easier.

 

Folders

Folders

Folders are the new backpacks for all those with a tendency to carry their books in hand and/or are constantly juggling between classes. Folders help organize. So pick a boring one and spunk it up with stickers, doodles and all things you!
