Christmas Gift Ideas for a College Girl

Anna ScanlonNovember 20, 2010


Give the college girl on your Christmas gift list that will help her de-stress after a semester of studying. If you'd rather get her something to furnish her home or complete her apartment or dorm room, buy her something she can use all year around.

Spa Basket

If the college girl on your list is super-stressed about everything she has to finish, help her relax with a luxurious spa kit. Spa kits are available at almost any bath products store and feature items such as lotion, bubble bath, salt scrubs and other delights to pamper her. Most come in one "theme", featuring products all made with the same scent. Find a smell she loves, or one that reminds you of her.

Kitchen Supplies

For the girl who lives in her own apartment or with roommates, buy her some kitchen supplies to add to her home. Many college students slip by on a shoe-string budget with just the bare essentials, so beef up her kitchen with a classic serving tray, sets of wine glasses (for the upperclassmen) or other supplies like measuring cups and whisks. If you buy her wine glasses or measuring cups, fill them with her favorite Christmas-themed candy when you give them to her.

Blanket or Throw

Keep her warm during those winter late night study sessions with a comfortable and thick blanket. You can purchase a winter blanket at almost any home goods store, but RedEnvelope stocks a luxurious chenille throw. This blanket comes in a taupe color, so that it blends in with almost any decor. You can also personalize the blanket with the girl's initials to make it even more special.
