Gift Guide: For College Students

November 17, 2016

All of us seem to have a few people that stump us every year, so I hope these gift guides will help you figure out what to get those people in your life (click here to see all the gift guides)! This week,Β I want to share with you aΒ gift guide: for college students! πŸ™‚

Gift Guide: For College Students

(This post may contain affiliate links. For my full disclosure policy, click here.)

Ahhh, college. What a fun time in life! I wouldn’t say that I was your ordinary college student (I had a strict 10 PM bedtime, which I set myself), but I still had a great time! College students can come across asΒ hard to shop for, because it seems like all they want it food and a Netflix subscription. While those aren’t bad ideas, I’ve got some better ones! Whether it’s your child, your friend, or someone who you work with, I promise that the college students in your life are going to want these gifts! πŸ™‚

    I ALWAYS asked for restaurant gift cards for christmas. The one thing I hate(d) spending money on was food–I always felt there were so many better things to be buying. But gift cards solve that problem! & I love the polaroid camera πŸ™‚ Perfect for creating memories!

    1. Abbey

      Thanks, Rachel! I love getting food gift cards, too! Always handy! πŸ™‚
