Amazon Fire TV Stick

Entertainment is a top priority in a student house and whilst there might be some good shows on TV, I think we all know where the real selection is. With an Amazon Fire TV Stick you can access all the biggest streaming platforms from Amazon Prime to Netflix to YouTube. The best part is that you can get all of this in the Lite edition for only £29.99. But, if you feel like splashing out, there is a 4K UltraHD edition for only £20 more.

5. Mini Fridge - Russell Hobbs

Let’s face it, as students we are lazy. No one wants to walk to the fridge whilst kicking back with the gang. Here's a simple solution: get a mini fridge! Not only can you save yourself missing the best part of a movie or the match-winning moment, this mini fridge can also plug into your car to serve as a cooler for long journeys! This multi-use gadget will set you back £40 from Russell Hobbs, making it the most expensive item on our list - but we think it’s worth it.

6. Air Fryer - Tower T17023

The new best way to cook food is by using an air fryer. It’s super fast, you don't need much oil (healthier) and it gives the food that lovely crispy-fried texture. This Tower air fryer in particular has several cooking modes. It offers a manual timer and a dial to control the temperature anywhere between 80-200°C. This means you can cook a wide range of foods. Grab now from Amazon for £39.
