Best Holiday Gifts for College Students

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.

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.


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!
