This post is all about college girl Christmas gifts!
Especially for the winter time, this is the perfect gift for anyone who hates the cold.
This is a classic holiday gift and you can really never go wrong with giving someone a couple more pairs of comfy fuzzy socks as their Christmas gift.
These pillows are super comfy to have in a dorm room and make for some great extra seating.
Like the heated blanket, another similar option you can buy is a weighted blanket. These are super soft and are so comfy to use.
For all the coffee lovers, this mini Keurig is one of my favorites of all the college girl Christmas gifts on the list. This is small enough to fit in any dorm room and makes getting that first morning cup of coffee so much easier in college.
If you want to add a little more to this gift, it pairs perfectly with some coffee pods and coffee cups/mugs.
Especially for people sharing rooms in college, an eye mask is a super helpful thing to have. This one is also really soft and won’t be annoying to sleep in.
Bath bombs are a cute little gift to give for any college student home for winter break. This is the perfect time (when they actually have access to a bathtub) to use the bath bombs and have some self care time.
For small dorm rooms, a lap desk is a life saver! When you don’t feel like sitting at your desk to do work, this lap desk makes it so much easier to work from your bed. Plus, this one has a super soft cushion and a spot to hold your phone to make things even easier.
This one’s another classic, but one of the most useful college girl Christmas gifts you can give. Even if they already have a water bottle, it never hurts to have another one (these get lost super easily).
There are so many fun colors to pick from, so you can personalize it to whoever you are giving it to. If you want to spend a little more, you can also buy the straw lid, which makes drinking water on the go a lot easier.
Coffee mug warmer
This is such a helpful gadget to have for anyone always drinking coffee or tea! This’ll keep your drink hot for so much longer.
For anyone in the cold, a comfy is a winter essential. These things are literally life changing and so so soft. This’ll definitely be one of their favorite gifts to get this year!
For anyone prone to losing things, a tile is super helpful. These things will make sure you never loose all your essentials ever again.
An echo dot is super helpful to have in a dorm room. Whether you want to set a timer for your clothes in the washing machine or play some music, it can never hurt to have this in your room.
For all the reading lovers, try gifting a kindle. These aren’t too expensive and let them have every book all in one device. Especially for college campuses, this makes reading all your favorites so much easier.
This is such a fun gift for someone looking to get into yoga (or anyone already doing it and needing a new mat!). You can make this gift so cute and buy a pattern/color you think the person would love.
Yoga mat bag
If you want to gift even more with the yoga mat, try giving a yoga mat bag as well. This bag is adjustable and will fit almost every yoga mat.
A bag makes it so much easier to transport your yoga mat to and from whatever class you may be using it in.
A portable charger is a must in college. This thing will 100% come in handy for those long days when you don’t have time to sit and charge your phone somewhere.
mini smartphone photo printer
These things are so cute! They take photos from your phone and can print them out immediately. Especially for decorating your dorm room and keeping it up to date with all your recent pictures, this mini photo printer is perfect.
hot cocoa mix
This pack of hot cocoa is the perfect gift for the wintertime. You can also pair this with cups or mugs and some marshmallows to make for a super cute hot cocoa kit.
Fairy lights are one of the easiest ways to decorate a dorm room. They seriously make every room look so cute and they don’t require a lot of planning or work to set up.
adult coloring book
A fun adult coloring book is a cute and easy gift to give anyone artistic (or not!). There are hundreds of different books, all with different themes, so you can pick whatever you think the person would like best!
I am definitely a little bias, but I think journals are such a cute Christmas gift. You can buy a plain one or have fun picking a cute color/pattern. You can also pick between a blank journal, bullet journal, or lined journal.
This is on the pricier side, but such a nice gift to give any girl this Christmas season. You can never go wrong with anything Lululemon, and leggings are the perfect gift for the winter. These are super high quality and are great for everyday use or working out.
These might literally be some of the comfiest shoes I own. Right when it becomes socially acceptable to start wearing uggs again these are always on my feet.
If you don’t have a pair of ugg slippers, this should 100% be on the top of your Christmas list.
For anyone in the cold, you can never go wrong with gifting some winter essentials like hats, scarves, and gloves. You can get a cute set with all three or buy each individually.
A polaroid camera is such a fun way to capture candid memories from all your college activities. These make for such cute dorm decorations.
Parties games like this one and so many more are so much fun to play during nights with friends. There are so many different games out there, so you can either buy one or gift a bunch!
A girl can never have enough scrunchies! A cute new pack of scrunchies is perfect for a stocking or Christmas gift.
streaming service subscription
A subscription to something like Neflix, Hulu, Spotify premium, and more are less common gifts but so useful! Every college kid would love getting a year’s worth of one of these services.
Scratch offs are such a fun gift. Not only will they hopefully make some money, but it’s super fun to play whatever game is on the scratch off. You can even buy scratch offs with a holiday theme to make the gift more festive.
Like the scrunchies, you can’t go wrong gifting some claw clips. Basically any hair accessories make for really good college girl Christmas gifts.
These are such cute gifts that are super customizable to whoever is getting the gift. You can either buy them as a big set or individually pick which stickers you want to gift.
Stickers like these can be used on laptops, iPads, water bottles, and more!
Giftcards are always an easy option for a gift. Plus, you can virtually send them to someone, making it a million times easier for gifting to someone far away.
You can also pick to give a giftcard from one store or a few.
Colored pens are a staple for college organization! Especially starting the new semester a little while after Christmas, buying these for someone can help stay organized at the start of new classes.
Nothing makes you feel fancier than going to sleep with a silk pillowcase, even if it was less than $15 on amazon. These are such cute gifts that will make people think you are buying them something really fancy.
Luggage is a super useful Christmas gift that anyone who flys to college would love receiving. Buying it as a set is also extremely nice to have matching suitcases.
mini waffle maker
This is such a cute little gadget that is perfect for a small dorm room. You can have so much fun making waffles for breakfast or dessert waffles at night with friends!
open when letters
If you don’t want to spend any money on a gift, try giving open when letters instead. These are such a cute and personable alternative to a gift that the person will truly appreciate.
These are super popular necklaces that make for the perfect Christmas gift.
