S'Well water bottles 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).

If the person you're gifting is more outdoorsy, I find that these college gals usually tend to go for the Hydro Flask

Both are the most popular water bottles people get in college.

The most popular colors currently for college students are matte blackgoldblack crocodile, and marble.

3. Fuzzy 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 freezing 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). 

4. AirPods

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. Apple Watch

I called my sister to ask her what she thought the most popular christmas gifts for college girl would be (she's a freshman at University of Wisconsin-Madison) and she said hands down fuzzy sweatshirts.

She has this one from Nordstrom and whenever she wears it, she has at least ten girls asking where she got it from. 

The one I have listed is a cheaper one available on Amazon, but if you want the real deal the Nordstrom sweatshirt is the way to go. 

These are really popular and for good reason. You are basically a walking blanket wearing this!

Um, who wouldn't want a gift card for a massage?!

A massage is something every college girl wants but usually can't afford, so surprise her with one on you!

I recently saw a picture of a group of girls from my high school with their college friends and every single one had white Adidas sneakers on.

It is definitely the popular shoe available right now.

I included the black and white adidas sneaker because thats the classic option (still very popular) but the all white one is the most popular option right now. 

10. Baseball Hat

Hats are always popular but especially with college students since sometimes we don't feel like washing our hair ;/. 

These are the two favorite hats... The first hat can be customized to have the initials of your local airport. It lets the student bring a little bit of home to college.

The second hat is the distressed look which is SO popular. Both are great options!

11. Long Winter Jacket

If you're in the North and the college student doesn't have a long winter jacket like one of these, you my swell 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. The Canada Goose Jacket ($923.71) seems extremely expensive but you would be shocked at the amount of college students that have them because they keep you so warm. 

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.

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.

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.

You can find this gold tile here.

27. Initial Necklace

Initial necklaces are the thing to wear right now. The most popular ones are these two which are actually dupes for more expensive brands (like WAY more expensive).

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.

28. Towel Wrap

I used mine everyday and still use it every single time I shower.

You can find this towel wrap in all kinds of colors here.

These aren't cheap but they will last you a long time (and come in many different colors!).
