College enrollment among adults is rapidly increasing. Chances are you know someone who’s going back to school—maybe even your spouse or child. Showing appreciation to that adult student in your life for working hard to better their life and professional opportunities can go a long way. Whether it’s for the holiday season, a special birthday, or just because you care, the right gift tells your loved one you’re thinking about their needs and investing in their happiness. Rather than sending a gift basket or shopping the sale aisle at the last minute, try taking some time to weigh which gifts might improve your loved one’s quality of life.
