It’s the Holiday Season again. Previously we discussed the college holiday shopping outlook. Now, it’s time took look into college students holiday shopping trends. What are the hot gifts and items that college students want this year? Since shopping for college students has a tendency to be difficult as the response to asking what they want usually ends up being, “I don’t know”. We compiled a list of some of the hottest college-oriented gifts for college men and women. In terms of advertising these items could be prizes for drawings and giveaways for campaigns.

Men’s Gift Ideas

Firstly, for the guys, you can’t go wrong with Tile Bluetooth Trackers. These are super easy and convenient trackers to place on anything from your keys to your wallet or even your headphones. With the busy lives of college students, it is so easy to misplace some of your most important belongings. But Tile connects to your phone, making it incredibly easy to track down missing possessions.

Another easy but thoughtful gift is a personalized wallet. The wallets come in five different colors and can be engraved on both the inside and the outside. Whether you just want to engrave their initials or a heartfelt message, this is an inexpensive way to give them a gift that you know they will use.

One good option for college guys is getting them a HelloFresh Subscription for the holidays. In the busy life of a student, it can be hard to find the time to sit down and make a healthy meal. This can resort to piling on the fast food. HelloFresh provides recipes, ingredients, and nutritional info all in one box. It makes it incredibly easy to make a good, healthy meal.

Something that will absolutely upgrade the communal dorm life is a Brooklinen Super Plush Robe. It is “extra thick for spa like comfort” and is weighted like a weighted blanket. While it is a simple touch, this is a perfect addition to the life of a college student in the dorms.

Lastly for the college gentlemen, this holiday season, we recommend getting the Beats Pill+ Portable Wireless Speaker. This speaker has up to 12 hours of listening time on a charge and has a built-in microphone for calls. Additionally, it can charge your devices simultaneously and is compatible with both iOS and Android devices.

Women’s Gift Ideas

Next, for the girls, an easy way to brighten and spruce up your room is with a Propogation Station. These hanging plants are adorable and easy to maintain, perfect for college students looking for something low maintenance to take care of.

Hanging Propagation Station

Another great option is pressed flower jewelry. Get stunning floral pieces while simultaneously supporting small businesses on Etsy. Whether you plan to get your birth flower or your favorite flower, this is a beautiful piece of simple jewelry that you should definitely add to your collection.

Everyone knows someone whose phone is always dying. This year get them a Phone Charging Bracelet. The bracelet, available in gold, rose gold, silver, and matte black, holds a full charge for 30 days. You can charge your phone an additional 50% in 40 minutes.

The Intelex Cozy Body Boots are perfect for the cold winter months coming up. Microwave these super plush boots to make them nice and toasty. They come in six different colors and are perfect for college students taking their classes remotely.

Lastly, for our fashionable girls, we recommend getting them custom Air Force One’s. They are on the more expensive side but the customization is so well done and have tons of options to choose from.

Whether you’re planning a giveaway for college students or doing your own holiday shopping, these gifts hopefully provide you some insight into what college students are looking for this year. Hopefully these gift/prize ideas will provide great holiday cheer.
