College kids are generally pretty broke and will appreciate literally any holiday gifts that you are able to give them. But they aren’t always an easy group to figure out what to get them. So I tapped into my recently graduated brain to think of what I would have loved to get when I was in school during the holidays. Which is why today I am sharing this list of the best holiday gifts for college students.
Thankfully, most college students will appreciate any gift that you are giving them. But if you are wanting to give them something helpful or something fun that they will really use then keep on reading because that is what I am sharing today!

The gifts for college students are split up into 3 great categories of gift baskets, necessities, and college themed gifts. So that hopefully you will be able to narrow it down and find the best gift for the college kid in your life.
Best Holiday Gifts for College Students
They are a great value and always exciting for college kids. Gift baskets are full fun and different items so that there is an incredibly high likelihood that they will like some or all of the items in them. You can also DIY them a gift basket and fill it with some of their favorite items like snacks, caffeine of some sort, some self care items, and anything else that they would like for in college. A key to always remember is what they could use on their day to day life while in college!

Getting them a gift that they will be able to use on a day to day basis is always a huge hit with college students. It may not feel quite as exciting to get them but trust me when they are using your gift regularly they will be incredibly thankful. And they will think of you when they are using it which is alway a sweet win to getting someone a gift that they will use regularly.

College Themed Gifts
Anything related to the students school is always a great present idea! Thankfully for the internet no matter where they go to school you can almost certainly find something fun with their school name or logo on it. And once they graduate these are great items for them to keep having as well to remind them of their fun times in college!
All options are pretty much available for 50+ large colleges and universities. For smaller schools I recommend checking out the school website for their online gift shop! Or going with customized options that are on Etsy so you can still get them something fun even if they do attend a smaller school that isn’t on stores like Amazon and Targets websites.
