The 5 Ingredient College Cookbook

College students just do not know how to feed themselves! They eat more junk than imaginable and often resort to fast food and convenience foods because it’s easy! Do your sweet baby a favor and start cooking with them now from this cookbook so that when they leave the nest, they know how to make healthy and easy meals. This will make them the best friend of all their suitemates!

New Beginnings Necklace

Such a sweet reminder that this is an exciting new chapter in your daughters life and something to be embraced and celebrated!

Noise Cancelling Headphones

Totally necessary for studying…and only for studying…definitely not for jamming out to their favorite tunes…nope…studying!

Amazon Echo Dot

Hands-free music, calls, lights, etc…this little cutie makes ordering pizza on late study nights super easy!! No excuse not to call Mom with this!

Kate Spade Laptop Sleeve

I absolutely love this striped pattern from Kate Spade! Timeless, classic and perfect for your 8 am classes!

Rose Gold Fossil Watch

Rose Gold is THE color this year…if you want to be on-trend…buy anything in this color! I love this watch and Fossil has always been a favorite so this is the perfect combo for you!


I absolutely love getting a new planner! I could spend the afternoon getting organized and writing in all my favorite Birthdays and upcoming events! This will help any college student keep their life and schedules organized!

Portable Humidifier

Dormrooms and apartments sometimes do not have the best airflow and ventilation…and we all know how awful it is when your skin gets all dried out from lack of humidity…this will help in an easy to carry and store kinda way!! Great personal size!

Tile Trackers (Never lose keys again!)

This is pure genius!! If you know someone who can not keep up with keys, purse, wallet, etc…this is for them!! Check it out!

Waterproof Camcorder

Great for capturing all their life events and looking cool while they do it! This would be fun for vacations, sports, weekend trips, etc!

Single-Serve Keurig

This will wake everyone in the suite up on the right foot! No reason to miss that 8 am class with this!! Be sure to stock up on K-cups too!


Every college student needs a great backpack! Make sure the fit is right and there is lots of support…they do a lot of walking with a lot of books!

I hope you have enjoyed these gift ideas for High School Seniors and College Students! I think there are lots of ways that you can get them practical gifts that they really need, but make it fun so they enjoy using them!!

Feel free to pin this for later!!!
