Gift Guide: College Girl (2014)
1. Aerie Softest Robe: $39.95, Aerie
A cute robe is a great idea if your college girl is a dorm dweller. She can look cute and be comfy on her way to and from the showers, and if she's a spinster-in-training, she can wear it even more than that. Just a reminder: When shopping Aerie, always go up a size...unless you're as svelte as the girls in their ads.
2. Hunter 'Original' Clear Waterproof Rain Boots: $149.95, Nordstrom
A snazzy pair of rain boots is a great idea if the college girl on your list gets her education on a walking campus. She can avoid ruining her favorite suede shoes without sacrificing wearing attractive footwear.
3. 2GB USB Memory Silver Necklace: $28.79, Boardaments on Etsy
Most college student are probably carrying around iPads now, but in case yours isn't, she can carry around all the info she needs in this handy dandy USB drive disguised as a silver key necklace. Pretty clever, huh?
4. Pink ZigZag Socks: $8.40, Happy Socks
I wish I could say I added this because my philosophy in college was "the more socks/underwear/towels you have, the less often you have to do laundry," (that was, in fact, my philosophy), but the real reason I added these is simple: I just like socks.
5. Target Gift Card: $5-$200, Target
The item I've linked here is actually a digital exclusive, but we all know you can pick one of these guys up at any of your local Target Stores. All college students find themselves in need of a little extra cash and also a trip to Target. This solves both problems!

8. Silver Glitter Cutlery - Set of 24: $5.95, CakeGirls
The less dishes your college girl has to watch, the happier she'll be. That doesn't mean, though, she has to use plain white ones! Have a little fun with these silver glitter plastics!

Every student needs a really great backpack. Herschel Supply Company is a good option. Their bags are sturdy, yet fun, and they have so many options! This bag is currently on sale at ASOS, and if your favorite student is into monograms, I must say this would be a great vehicle for one.
