Last Minute Gift Guide for the College Student

A little helpful guide for your last-minute Christmas Eve Eve shopping –

To-Go Cup

I even asked for this one! This is a college essential, especially for the commuter. I walk out of the house looking like a cup lady carrying my green tea, my Hydroflask full of ice water, and an extra water bottle. You have to keep hydrated throughout the day. I don’t have to tell you all of the benefits of drinking water because I’m sure you know them ALL already. Definitely decreases waste for sure, too!

Pair of Nikes

My mood changes about whether I want to look cute for school by the day. On the days that I have the most classes, however, I definitely do the Nike’s and leggings look because a full day of classes isn’t fun for anyone! Also, a pair of sneaks can for sure boost up the motivation to go to the gym!

2018 Planner

What’s a JP blog post without mentioning a planner, right? Since the year is coming to a close, it’s a great time to buy a cute new planner for the school year. Everyone is bringing out the new year, new me so why not encourage that attitude with a planner. Whenever I give planners as gifts, I try to add some cute colored pens or stickers to go along with it.

Fast Food Giftcards

I am about to graduate and I STILL really appreciate fast food gift cards. My favorite fast food place by far is Chick-Fil-A and I swear I crave it every week. Another good idea if you don’t want to condone the unhealthy eating is a gift card to Starbucks or their favorite coffee shop. What college student doesn’t study in a coffee shop?

Wireless Mouse

Maybe it’s just me, but I really want a wireless mouse. Not all majors do a lot of clicking on their computer but since I’m majoring in Education, I do tons of formatting. A wireless mouse would be great for photographers and videographers as well since clicking is essential!


Most of the time you see college students walking to class by themselves. It gets kind of awkward walking in silence by yourself so I love to put in some headphones and tune out the world. GOOD TIP + EMBARRASSING STORY – I almost got hit by a car because I was crossing the street with my headphones. Please include in your little note to take out at least one headphone out if they decide to cross the street because obviously, I don’t know how to function as a human being.


College students get to go school supply shopping twice, which is personally my favorite perk of college! New classes mean new folders and new notebooks. I love to put together a little kit of sticky notes, pens, a mini stapler, (ESSENTIAL FOR THE PICKY PROFESSORS) and other helpful things they can put in their pocket.

With love,
