I’ve always loved holiday shopping for my college daughter as I can think of so many cute and practical things for her, many that I would secretly love to have myself! If you have a daughter, niece or other young woman in your life, here are our favorite holiday gifts for her, 2017.
We receive small amounts of compensation from purchases made through some of these links which helps us pay our writers. Thanks!
Favorite Holiday Gifts for Her
Small, sleek and bluetooth enabled. Perfect for streaming sound in a dorm or apartment.
There are backpacks, laden with books and laptops, and then there are BACKPACKS, the kind you can go out to dinner with. This is a trend that is here to stay and here is a huge selection at every price.
It pretty much does everything. Honest. Second generation now has a screen which means that, if you buy two, you can video chat with your daughter at college.
It kinda makes sense. The amazing brush that can take off your make up, leaving your skin clear and clean can also perfectly apply that foundation, as well. (Yes, this is one I would want for myself!)
There is NO better safety device for your daughter than a charged phone and this one is exceptional. It is way faster than other models, and the charging cables are built in, meaning no more cables getting tangled in backpacks or forgotten at home.
Teens and college kids should all have their own water bottles and, when it is one like this one, they will be much less likely to leave it behind or mistake it with a roommate’s or teammate’s. Comes in an array of great colors.
Reading for fun or reading for school should not have to involve heavy books in a back pack. Maybe it’s time for your daughter to try out an e-reader.
Notes to Self socks offer words of encouragement, now in lovely gift boxes. Who wouldn’t love comfy, new and matched socks, especially when they provide a little inspiration to get you daughter’s day off to the right start?
We would love to think our college kids missed us but the truth is they miss their pets. Here is a fun way to “take” that pet to college with them as a customized pillow.
Is your daughter’s best friend your family dog? We love these socks that can be custom-printed with the face of your dog or cat. A percentage of each sale is donated to the Humane Society.
They were fun when we were kids, they are still fun.
This 17 piece kit has everything a young woman needs for ANY fashion emergency. There are a series of Pinch Provisions that all make great holiday gifts for her.
If there is cuter gift on the internet we dare you to find it. These S’more slippers are USB-powered to operate as foot warmers, too.
Some pictures are so good they need to be made into copies and this compact printer is just perfect.
Away luggage is young and trendy and they call it first class luggage at a coach price. Bonus feature is the built in charger so she can keep her phone battery ready while she’s on the go.
If your daughter is in 11th or 12th grade with college on the horizon, this book is a perfect send off from the editors of the wildly popular Her Campus website.
This slender volume packs all the love and wisdom you will want to give your daughter who will be heading off to college or who is already in her early years of adulting.
This is career, no, life advice, that our daughters and sons need to hear. Finding the right career is about far more than finding a job. And it starts with meeting 100 people.
Treat your daughter and her college roommate to a mani/pedi with gift cards to a favorite campus nail salon.
