BEST OVERALL GIFTS FOR COLLEGE GIRL:
1. Ugg Slippers
UGG slippers are extremely popular Christmas gifts for college girl that will last you for years.
These are especially popular in dorms because you can wear them throughout the dorm hall and don't need to take them off.
2. Hydro Flask
Hdryo Flask's are the "it" thing right now because they are cute but also keep water cold for days (not an exaggeration-- I have one and love it).
3. Barefoot Dreams Blanket
Is there a more comfy looking blanket?! I'm thinking no.
You can't go wrong with a blanket as a Christmas gift, it is a hit for all kinds of people.
Dorms and apartments have a history of being cold since no one wants to pay for a lot of heat. A blanket is a must in the winter.
This blanket comes in a variety of colors and sizes (twin, queen, and king).
Bluetooth headphones are a college essential and beloved item by many.
Some of my college friends said that bluetooth headphones have been their favorite purchase of the year and that they didn't know how they lived without them before (slightly dramatic, but you can clearly tell these are a hit).
The original Apple AirPods are the most popular wireless headphones for college students. They hold battery for a long time and don't break easily. However, if you are looking for a cheaper alternative these wireless headphones come in at just $27.99.
5. 2023 College Planner
We made the PERFECT planner for college students and just know that this would be the perfect gift to keep college girls organized!
Anddd we just launched a January-December 2023 version which would make the absolute best Christmas gift this year.
6. Lululemon Workout Gear
You can never have enough Lululemon clothes and will be a hit no matter what the girl is like.
Lululemon is by far the most popular workout brand for college students.
7. Oversized Sweatshirts
Over-sized hoodies are all the rage right now and who can complain.
I am perfectly fine with comfy clothing becoming trendy! These hoodies are perfect to wear to classes with some Nike Air-Force 1's.
8. Apple Watch
Not only can it help you stay organized and on top of your work, the Apple Watch can also help look at your fitness and sleep patterns. This is a bigger gift, but one of the most wanted Christmas gifts for college girl.
Looking for gifts for college students guys? Don't worry, this also comes in black and gray.
9. White Sneakers
I recently saw a picture of a group of girls from my high school with their college friends and every single one had white sneakers on.
It is definitely the popular shoe available right now.
10. Baseball Hat
Hats are always popular but especially with college students since sometimes we don't feel like washing our hair ;/.
11. Winter Jackets
If you're in the North and the college student doesn't have a long winter jacket like one of these, you might as well plan their funeral.
Okay, totally kidding. But seriously, a good jacket is so essential for anywhere that gets cold. Most of college students classes require a walk and colleges don't cancel classes easily for snow/cold weather.
This Christmas gift for college girl can be a little pricey, but they both last forever.
12. Satin Pajamas
The go-to college pajamas is a large old t-shirt and a raggedy pair of shorts.
BUT, having a nice set of satin pajamas makes you feel much more put together and the perfect way to feel a little more like, "I've got my shi* together and I will ace this test tomorrow".
Everyone could use a new set of pajamas and no one really thinks about buying themselves them which makes it the perfect gift.
13. Laptop Stickers
Putting stickers on your laptop is a very popular thing to do among college students.
You can purchase all types of laptop stickers for really cheap on Amazon. They even come in packs of one hundred.
This is a perfect Christmas stocking stuffer for college students.
14. Dainty Necklace
Dainty necklaces are a cute everyday accessory that college students can wear. These styles are very popular among students and is the perfect little accessory.
15. Portable Charger
There is two things college students are always dealing with: Always being on the go and their phone never charged.
A portable phone charger is the perfect gift for college students and can easily fit in a backpack or purse.
Don't think the college student will like this color? Don't worry, it also comes in black, red, and silver.
Scrunchies are SO popular and the perfect way to snazzy up a normal pony tail.
17. Casetify Phone Case
Casetify phone cases are extremely popular among college students. They have all different designs so they are perfect Christmas gifts for college girls.
18. Eyeshadow Palette
This eyeshadow palette is perfect for college students because it has colors for everyday wear and colors that can also be worn on a night out.
Any beauty lover would love this palette. (also, if you can snatch it up--get it! It's sold out so many places because of how popular it is!)
19. Face Masks
Face masks are the closest thing college students will get to a spa. Believe me, this will be one of the best Christmas gifts for college girls.
20. Silk Pillow Case
College apartment and dorm showers can be rough on the hair so anything that can tame it a little bit, is worth it.
These silk pillowcases are known for helping keep hair from breaking and eliminating frizz.
Gift cards have always been and will always be the most wanted Christmas gift for college girl.
The most popular gift cards among us college students are Amazon, Target, food places, and Gas gift cards.
I'm biased to Amazon because they offer SO many products. They can get everything from game day apparel to food (and everything in between). Amazon gift cards can be purchased online.
23. Bluetooth Speaker
Every college student needs a bluetooth speaker. It is essential!
This JBL Flip 3 Splash-proof Portable Stereo is one of the most popular speakers because of how loud it can play, it won't break if drinks get spilled on it, and can easily fit in a purse or backpack to take somewhere.
24. Travel Mug
If the student you are gifting this too is a coffee or tea lover, this is a must.
The Yeti Tumblr is truly the best insulated travel mug and keeps your drink hot all through the day. Plus, it doesn't spill which is very important. If you don't like white, there are 12 other colors to choose from.
25. RayBan Sunglasses
Everyone wants Ray Ban sunglasses. These are BY FAR the most popular sunglass brand for college students. You literally can't go wrong getting a pair of Ray Bans for a girl in college.
I would say these are the most popular style Ray Ban for students but there are all different kinds of styles, so make sure to see which one you think they would like best! Quay is another super popular brand!
If the student you are buying for loses things a lot, they NEED a Tile!
You attach them to your keys and hook it up to an app on your phone. The app will tell you exactly where your keys are so you never misplace them.
AND they are less than $25! I always assumed they were much more than that.
27. Initial Necklace
Initial necklaces are the thing to wear right now.
These are a little bigger so if the person you're buying for doesn't usually wear jewelry I would maybe stay away from this and go for more simple pieces!
28. Towel Wrap
I've said it before and I'll say it again, towel wraps are a MUST in college! I used mine everyday and still use it every single time I shower.
29. Luna Face Cleaner
You know Clarisonics? Well this is the new "IT" skin care cleaner. I do have to say, these are amazing and clean your face so well.
These aren't cheap but they will last you a long time (and come in many different colors!).
30. Cosmetics Travel Bag
A travel makeup bag is so nice to have in college because you are usually carting your makeup around to different places for parties or game days you are getting ready for.
To have a travel cosmetics bag that is clearly yours can make sure your stuff doesn't get lost.
Plus, you'll be able to have it for a really long time!
