Digital Alarm Clock

Whether the college girl you’re shopping for lives in a dorm room, apartment, or even at home, a digital alarm clock is a must-have. 

This mirrored digital alarm clock is perfect for anyone who likes the clean girl aesthetic or modern decor because it also doubles as a mirror, which will make your room feel slightly bigger and more modern.

The base and lights all come in a variety of different colors, which makes it easily suitable for any aesthetic!

Fuzzy Slippers

Fuzzy slippers are an absolute must-have college essential, in my opinion. No matter where she lives, these will give her some comfort while she’s lounging at home.

These fuzzy slippers come in so many different colors and even patterns like pink and brown leopard print!

Personalized Tumbler

Every girl needs a personalized tumbler!

Whether she keeps her tumbler at her desk or in her car, these are so convenient and thoughtful.

You can customize this tumbler by choosing the tumbler color, name font and color, and personalize it with her name. 

Stanley Tumbler

If she doesn’t have a Stanley Cup yet, it’s a must-have for Christmas this year! 😉

Stanleys are especially amazing for long days at school, because they keep your drink cool for so many hours!

Cute Workout Set

How cute is this high waisted ribbed workout set?! I can’t get enough of cute workout sets.

If the girl you’re shopping for loves comfy workout sets, you can check out this set in a few different colors and styles!

Lululemon Leggings

Lululemon leggings are the BEST! I love this Espresso colored leggings, but you can also buy it in different shades of blue, red, green, tan, and more.

These are seriously the comfiest leggings she will ever own, and they are super high quality as well.

Rhode Lip Case

The Rhode lip case has been the VIRAL product of the year.

I see it all over TikTok and it’s for a good reason 😉

If your college girl is constantly carrying around her lip gloss, getting her this Rhode lip tint case is the perfect way to make sure you’re buying her a gift she’ll use daily!

The Five Minute Journal

Sometimes, habits are hard to start but so worth it even if you’re dedicating just a little bit of time.

That’s why I love the five minute journal.

This journal will give her daily affirmations and space to reflect without taking tons of time out of her day.

It’s a great way to support your college girl on her self improvement journey.

Embroidered Shower Caddy

When it comes to dorm room essentials, a great shower caddy is not something you can afford to avoid. 

I love the idea of getting an embroidered shower caddy from Etsy because it’s a little more personalized and will help make sure she doesn’t lose sight of her stuff.

Plus, there are more than 20 colors to choose from, so you’ll certainly be able to find something she’ll love!

Hair Waver Curling Iron

I’m OBSESSED with using a hair waver to style my hair.

Although it isn’t the quickest hair style, it is an easy one that makes your hair SO PRETTY.

I use this INH Hair Waver and I’m super happy with it. Highly recommended!

Apple Air Tag

Apple air tags are an essential for everyone these days!

Whether you buy this as a standalone gift or include it as a stocking stuffer, the Apple Air Tag is a perfect gift for a college student that is traveling (home and back, or in between), or also in her everyday life.

She can connect it to her keys/put in her purse/wallet, and keep track of her belongings.

There are even a bunch of different fonts to choose from!

Alo Leggings

Alo leggings are super trendy right now!

After hearing so many amazing reviews everywhere online, I got myself a pair, and I must say they are super high quality, and very flattering.
