TOP 10 GIFT IDEAS FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS
one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine // ten
Let’s be honest here, the only thing any college student really wants for Christmas is for their family to stop asking them how school is going, or if they’re dating anyone. Everything is GREAT Aunt Karen, just great. However, everything else they could want is included in my gift ideas for college students. Below are a few of the things I would have loved receiving when I was in school!
Nice Weekend Bag
Whether they’re heading home for the weekend or going on a trip for their sorority formal, a nice weekend bag is a must as a college student. I love this one from Herschel – it’s not too big, and it looks really stylish. Plus, their products are really high quality at a very reasonable price point (meaning if they lose it, you won’t be too mad).
Hear me out on this one! While a tool kit would definitely not be the most exciting gift to receive, they will be SO thankful to have it when the need arises. I didn’t have a tool kit until after college, but it would have really come in handy when trying to build all that Ikea furniture!
Most college students don’t have much disposable income. This means that small luxuries like nice perfume aren’t really high on their priority list (because, you know, going out is priority number one!). As a working adult, a nice perfume probably won’t break your bank and it’s a gift that they will truly enjoy receiving.
I hope you found my gift ideas for college students helpful! What was on your wish list as a college student?

I never realized how much a tool kit would come in handy until I got my own place and began building furniture! It’s so complicated when you realize you’re missing the right screwdriver or you have to run out for a hammer that you forgot to get haha! These gift ideas are all fantastic!
That tool kit is such a great idea and so practical! I feel like that’s something every college student needs but never really thinks they need!
