  1. Caroline Yes Like The Song Personalized College Varsity Sweatshirt

    A couple weeks ago the owner behind this brand, Caroline, sent me the Alabama varsity sweatshirt and I have been absolutely loving it. She personalizes these sweatshirts for any college and they’re seriously too cute and comfy. They make the perfect gift for your college student!

  2. Erin Condren Life Planner

    If you know me, you know I am obsessed with my planner and I truly don’t know how I would survive all the due dates of college without it. Erin Condren makes the BEST planners and they are totally customizable and super fun.

  3. Apple Watch Series 4

    Another must have, I hardly go anywhere without my Apple watch. It’s so helpful for everything day to day and would be such a great gift. I don’t know what I’d do without mine!

  4. DIFF Blue Light Blocking Glasses

    I am a DIFF ambassador and I have been LOVING these blue light blocking glasses! I wear them anytime I am looking at a screen or working on my laptop. They have already been so helpful in allowing me to fall asleep quicker and lessen the intensity of my headaches. 10/10 Recommend.

  5. Ugg Slippers

    Whether it be wandering around a dorm or just around your apartment, these are the perfect slippers!! So cute and comfy and they come in lots of different colors.

  6. Capello Bluetooth Speaker + Alarm Clock

    I am so guilty of not being good at waking up to my phone alarm, but setting an actual alarm is so much more helpful! And in addition to that, this one doubles as a bluetooth speaker. I feel like I am always listening to music so this is a perfect way to combine the two!

  7. Large Longchamp Tote Bag

    I carry my Longchamp bag basically everywhere I go— whether that be to class, church, a coffee date, or even to the beach. This tote is so versatile and useful for so many different occasions. I’m obsessed with it!

  8. Keurig Single Serve Coffee Maker

    Since making an entire pot of coffee is usually a waste as I’m running out the door in the morning, the Keurig single serve is perfect for that one cup to get my day started. This is a great gift for any college student with a coffee addiction and saves tons of money that would otherwise be spent on Starbucks!

  9. Cactaki Time Marker Water Bottle

    This water bottle has made remembering to drink water SO much easier and I’m really not sure what I did before it. It has time markers to show you how much water you should have drank by each time during the day. It keeps me in check and helps me to know when I’m slacking in my water intake for the day!

  10. 9Round Fitness Membership here.

    Given my busy schedule, I would always make excuses to myself that I was too busy to work out. 9Round made it impossible to keep giving myself excuses as they get you in and out in 30 minutes with quite the killer workout. This has become one of my most favorite things and something I always look forward to. A membership here would be the perfect gift for any busy college student who still wants to make their health a priority.

  11. Big O Silicone Key Ring

    While I don’t have this key ring, I know so many girls that do and are obsessed with it. It’s a convenient way to carry your keys with you everywhere you go in a cute and fun way.

  12. Tile Mate Tracker

    The Tile is a life saver!! I have mine in my purse but you can also put it on your keys or really anywhere you can think of, and then if you lose it you can easily track it down. Being the somewhat forgetful person that I am, this is the best little invention.

  13. To- Go Coffee Thermos

    In addition to the Keurig Single Serve, a to-go thermos makes the perfect gift for the college student who is always running late but doesn’t want to miss out on their morning coffee. Too often I forgo my coffee and then am tired the rest of the day, but this adorable to go cup ensures you never have to skip it.

  14. Thank you Notes

    There are so many occasions in college where I find myself needing to write thank you notes to certain people, so cute stationary is a must! I have a little collection of fun different cards and love being able to pick out my favorites to send to different people in my life.

  15. Love Does by Bob Goff

    One of my most favorite books of all time! This would make the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone but has so many incredible takeaways and life lessons applicable to college aged kids.

  16. West Bend Stir Crazy Popcorn Maker

    Growing up, every time I went to my grandparents house my grandma would make me homemade popcorn with this popcorn maker. When I got my own place this year, she surprised me with one of my own and my roommates and I use it all of the time for movie nights or even just a fun snack. It’s super easy to use and clean, also!

  17. Nike Open Hem Sweatpants

    These are so convenient for those days when you feel like just dressing comfy for class, or for simply lounging around the house doing laundry and catching up on homework. I live in sweatpants during the winter and these ones will keep you extra cozy.

  18. Apple Air-Pods

    You see these everywhere on campus and they seem to be everyone’s favorite thing these days. They are perfect for anyone who loves to listen to music and makes it extra convenient to do so!

I hope this inspired y’all with either some things to add to your Christmas list or ideas of what to get the college kid in your life! Check back again tomorrow for another Christmas Gift-Guide. Happy shopping!
