Christmas Gifts for College Girls
This post is all about the best Christmas gifts for college girls.
With Christmas right around the corner you are probably looking for the perfect Christmas gift for the college girl in your life.
And you’re looking for something special that will actually be used by your college student, not something that will sit gathering dust in the corner.
Coming from a recent college grad, I know that all the things on this list are super popular with college girls and guaranteed to be a gift that they love!
I’ve included a mix of higher end and inexpensive gift ideas, so there’s something for every budget on this list.
Also, almost every gift on this list should be available with free two day shipping from Amazon Prime. (Click here to get a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime if you need it for the holidays and don’t have it yet!)
AirPods are super popular right now and something that’s on almost every college student’s Christmas list. They are perfect for busy college students listening to music and podcasts on the go.
2. Lululemon Leggings
Almost every college girl I know wants a pair of Lululemon leggings. While they’re pricy for a pair of leggings, they are super comfortable and last a long time. You can wear them while running, doing yoga, etc. OR just throw them on with a pair of sneakers and a sweatshirt to wear to class.
3. S’well Water Bottle
You see these stainless steel water bottles all over college campuses! S’well bottles are super popular and make a great Christmas gift for college girls.
4. Mini Keurig
For the coffee loving college student in your life, a Mini Keurig makes a great gift. These are super small so they fit easily in a dorm room or college apartment. And not to mention they’re much more cost effective compared to buying Starbucks on campus every day!
5. Apple Watch
If you want a gift that your college girl will use every day, an Apple Watch is a great choice. (And I love this rose gold style!) These smart watches make you healthier by allowing you to track your steps, sleep schedule, and vital signs. You can also receive texts and phone calls on them.
6. Fuzzy Robe
Such a great gift idea. My mom got me a fuzzy robe for Christmas a few years ago and I literally wore it all the time at college! Especially during the winter, a warm fuzzy robe is the perfect thing to wear around your dorm or apartment.
7. Fleece Pullover
Sherpa fleece pullovers are another great winter weather gift and they are a wardrobe staple for college girls during the colder months! These pullovers are so soft and comfy, making them the perfect thing to throw on before an early morning class or to wear while just lounging around.
8. Ugg Slippers
In case you can’t tell, I’m on a roll here with cozy winter gift ideas. Ugg slippers are perfect for college girls to wear around their dorm or apartment on those bitterly cold winter mornings. They’re so cute and comfortable!
9. Shower Speakers
Waterproof Bluetooth speakers are a great inexpensive gift that college girls will love. You can bring it into the shower with you and listen to your favorite tunes! Someone was always doing this in my dorm’s community showers or at my sorority house. This is a super fun gift idea.
Birkenstocks are incredibly popular on college campuses and super comfortable too. It seems like almost every college girl has a pair (although she won’t be able to wear them until it gets warmer outside.)
If your college student is forgetful and always losing her keys, a Tile device makes a great gift. It’s a smart keychain that will tell you where your keys or purse are via an app you download on your phone!
12. Day Planner
My planner was my most important possession in college, and I brought it everywhere with me and used it every day! A cute planner (like this Bloom day planner) is a great Christmas gift that will help your college girl get organized and prepare for the upcoming year!
13. Initial Necklace
Initial necklaces are super popular right now. They are inexpensive yet still cute and make the perfect stocking stuffer for college girls!
14. Candle Warmer
A candle warmer is a great Christmas gift for college girls who live in a dorm. Most dorms don’t allow you to burn candles in your room, so a candle warmer is a safer alternative. Make sure to buy a few scented candles to go with it too!
15. Coffee Mug
Coffee mugs are always appreciated by college students. I especially love this pretty mug with the quote “She believed she could, so she did” on it. The perfect inspiring message for college girls!
16. Yeti Rambler
The craze for Yeti products took off a few years ago on college campuses. It seems like everyone has a Yeti on gamedays and other events. This turquoise Yeti Rambler makes a great college gift.
17. Adidas Superstars
Super comfortable and super stylish! White Adidas Superstars are so popular with college girls right now and they can be dressed up or down for any occasion. I wear mine almost every day.
18. Phone Cases
Phone cases makes a great stocking stuffer for college girls. I really love this rose gold marble phone case and in fact I have a similar one for myself!
19. Pompom Beanie
A warm and cozy pompom beanie is one of the best Christmas gifts for college girls that they are sure to appreciate and wear all winter long!
20. BirchBox Subscription
BirchBox is a subscription service that delivers a box of beauty and skincare products right to your doorstep each month. This is a great gift for college girls! Gift a BirchBox subscription here. (One month, three month, six month, and twelve month subscriptions are available.)
21. Fuzzy Socks
I always get a pair of fuzzy socks every year for Christmas in my stocking, and they are perfect for staying cozy during the winter! Especially for wearing around my apartment on chilly days.
22. Fujifilm Instax
For a super fun gift that is sure to be appreciated, give the college girl in your life an Instax Mini! These retro camera are back in style and perfect for capturing fun memories with friends at college.
A new backpack is the perfect college gift to get any college student excited for the upcoming semester. I really love this backpack from The North Face because it’s super stylish and roomy enough to fit a laptop, textbooks, planner, and other college class necessities.
24. Amazon Echo
An Amazon Echo is a small speaker great for putting in a dorm room or college apartment. It’s voice-enabled with Alexa, which means you can change the music, check the weather, set an alarm, or do any number of other things without even having to get out of the bed. 😉
25. Portable Charger
My portable cellphone charger was a lifesaver during college. Sometimes I didn’t have time to charge my phone before I left for the day, so having one of these ensured my phone battery never died while I was out and about.
26. Mini Photo Printer
How cute is this gift idea?! The Polaroid Zip mini photo printer allows you to print photos directly from your smartphone or other Bluetooth-enabled device. This is sure to be a hit with college girls!
Fitbits are fitness trackers that allow you to track your steps, heart rate, sleep schedule, and other healthy habits. This makes a great Christmas gift idea!
28. Party Game
How cozy and warm does this pajamas set look? This is the perfect Christmas gift for college girls that they can wear to sleep throughout the winter.
Scrunchies have made a major comeback and it seems like every college girl is wearing one in her hair or on her wrist. This pack of pink velvet scrunchies is a great inexpensive stocking stuffer idea.
31. Face Masks
This is another idea for stocking stuffers for college girls. Face masks rejuvenate, calm, and moisturize the skin and they offer a spa-like experience to help you de-stress during college.
For college students living in an apartment, a cookbook is a useful gift idea that will help them figure out how to make easy and healthy recipes on their own. This 5 Ingredient College Cookbook is great for beginner chefs.
33. Weighted Blanket
Weighted blankets are super popular right now because they can help you get a better night’s sleep and are super cozy and warm.
34. Streaming Service Subscription
A fun Christmas gift idea that’s sure to be enjoyed is a subscription to a streaming service like Netflix or Hulu. A year’s subscription is relatively inexpensive, but it is something any student will be extremely thankful for!
Does your college student love to read? A lot of college students are super busy but having a Kindle Paperwhite they can bring with them on the go is a great way to help them make time for reading!
36. Lap Desk
Sometimes you just want to do homework or work on your laptop in bed! A multi-functional lap desk is a super practical gift idea that makes that easier.
37. GIFT CARDS
Finally, never underestimate the power of gift cards as a Christmas gift for college students! Every student will be so appreciative of a gift card they can use for food, household goods, or fun. Some good idea for gift cards include Amazon, Target, Starbucks, or their favorite fast food place.
