51 Unique Christmas Gifts Ideas For Girls
1. Apple Airpods
Airpods are truly essential for any college student. They are the perfect gift for any girl on the go who likes to listen to music or podcasts on their way to class or while they are studying.
2. Lululemon Leggings
Lululemon is popular among so many college girls, and their leggings are some of my favorite Christmas gift ideas for girls! They are amazing to work out in or to wear casually to class. You can also pair the leggings with something smaller, like a scrunchie or a key chain.
3. Stanley Quencher Cup
A water bottle is another great gift, the Stanley Quencher is the “it” cup to own this year. I love Stanley cups because they come with a built-in straw, plus they fit in any cup holder. They come in so many cute colors and are also fun to customize with stickers from your school or sorority.
4. Apple Watch
An Apple watch is another great Christmas gift idea for girls to splurge on. I wear mine every day, and it seriously helps me out so much.
These watches are perfect for college girls who love to work out or track their steps on their way to class. It’s also a more convenient way to use all your phone’s features on the go!
5. Mini Keurig
For a college girl who loves coffee, a mini Keurig is a perfect gift. They are small enough to fit in any dorm or small apartment. They come in different cute colors and allow you to have coffee whenever you want!
You can also buy her some of her favorite coffee brands and flavors in k-cups to go along with the gift!
6. Fuzzy Robe
A fuzzy robe is a great gift idea for a college girl! You can pick out one in her favorite color and get a cute eye mask to match. Robes are so comfy and perfect for the colder months to keep you warm in your dorm or apartment.
Every college student needs a pair of comfy slippers to wear around their place. These smiley face ones are very trendy right now. I just picked up a pair myself and have lived in them every day since.
A planner for the new year is another fun gift to get a college girl. There are so many cute ones out there, but I thought this one was adorable. Planners are great for keeping you organized and on track as the new semester starts.
9. Zodiac Coffee Mug
Another great gift for a coffee lover is a new mug! Zodiac signs are very popular, and I have seen so many cute coffee mug designs with them.
10. Air Force 1s
Air Force 1s are the perfect, classic sneaker for any college girl. They are great for wearing to class or for going out with some jeans. You can also get a pair in a cute color instead of the all-white ones. These are the sage style that has become much more popular than the original ones because of the platform sole.
Beanies are great gifts to keep cozy all winter long! This one from Claire’s is baby pink with a butterfly, very trendy right now.
12. Makeup Subscription Box
A makeup subscription box is a great idea for a gift for a college girl. Birchbox sends you a variety of samples of high-end beauty products so you can try out different and new brands every month!
There are also other subscription services like Ipsy, Boxycharm, and Glossybox you can choose from.
13. Fuzzy Socks
A pair of warm and cozy fuzzy socks are the perfect stocking stuffer! These cheetah ones are adorable and will keep your feet warm all night long.
14. Amazon Echo Dot
The Amazon Echo Dot is a great Christmas gift idea for girls. These smart speakers are great to put in your dorm or apartment. Echo dots are voice-enabled with Alexa and have so many features like playing music, checking the weather, setting an alarm, and so many other things hands-free.
15. Portable Charger
A portable charger is another great technology gift. There are lots of different kinds on Amazon at all different price ranges. Portable chargers are great for college girls and can be carried in your backpack or purse, so you never have to worry about your phone losing battery.
16. Candle Warmer
Candle warmers are a great Christmas gift idea for girls because most dorms and apartment buildings don’t allow you to light candles. This candle warmer also acts as a coffee warmer, keeping your coffee hot for longer!
17. Party Game
Party games like this one are super fun gifts to get someone! They are great to keep on your coffee table or bookshelf and pull out when hanging out with friends. For the Girls is a fun game, but other popular game ideas are What Do You Meme and Cards Against Humanity.
18. Matching PJ Set
A cute matching PJ set like this one is a great gift idea for any college girl. You could also get them personalized with their initial or monogram to make them more special and personal. This set from Amason is satin and comes in a beautiful pale pink color.
19. Claw Clips
Claw clips are super popular right now among college girls. They make a great small gift and come in all different colors, shapes, and sizes. They are super cute to pull your hair back with for class!
Another fun gift for your hair is some scrunchies! These satin sleep scrunchies are supposed to prevent breakage and won’t crimp or agitate your hair while you sleep. They also let you wake up with frizz-free hair the next morning!
21. Matching Lounge Set
Loungewear has been very popular among college girls since online classes started. Throwing on a matching sweat set always makes me feel more productive while still feeling comfy while going to class or heading to a coffee shop to study.
This one from Amazon comes in 6 other colors and is a great gift!
22. Face Masks
Face masks are the perfect stocking stuffer! They are so fun, and you can do them by yourself to unwind at night or have a little spa night with all your friends.
23. Fuzzy Blanket
Everyone always needs a new fuzzy blanket for their bed or to cuddle up with on their couch, but it’s never really something you think to buy for yourself. The fuzzy blankets from Etsy are super soft and cute and make great gifts! They come in a few colors, so you can choose one that matches their room aesthetic!
24. Mini Polaroid Camera
These mini polaroid cameras are such a good gift idea. I’ve always wanted one but never wanted to buy one myself. They are so fun to take pictures with your friends and then hang those pictures up around your room! The Instax mini polaroids also come in cute colors, but this pale pink is adorable.
25. Streaming Service Subscription
Buying someone a streaming service subscription is such a good idea for a gift! There are so many different services out there, and it is such a great gift to receive!
26. Tumbler Cup/Travel Mug
Yeti cups are super popular and make great Christmas gift ideas for girls! Travel tumbler cups like these are great for taking your coffee or any other drinks on the go, like to class.
Birkenstocks are a very popular shoe for college girls. If you’re looking to spend a little more, they make great gifts! There are so many different colors and styles to choose from, but the white ones are super cute and will go with a lot.
The Birkenstock Boston clogs are also super popular right now….. if you can even find them in stock!
28. Mini Ugg Boots
Another popular shoe to gift is some Ugg boots. They are pricey, but if they’re within your budget, they will not sit in your giftee’s closet. These will get lots of wear out of them.
The mini style in particular has been super popular among college girls and is the perfect winter boot for class!
29. Heating Neck Wrap
This next gift idea is a great one for stressed-out college kids! Heating a neck wrap is so easy! You just warm it up in the microwave, and it heats up and is so cozy to keep around your neck or anywhere else that is feeling sore or tense.
30. Body Care Set
Skincare and body care products are such fun gifts to receive!
The Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum scent is seriously the best-smelling lotion I have ever used. This little gift set comes with the Brazilian Bum Bum cream, shower gel, and a body mist, all in a cute little makeup bag.
31. Mini Backpack
A mini backpack is one of my favorite Christmas gift ideas for girls! It is the perfect size to fit a laptop and some other essentials when running to class or a coffee shop to study. They are also super cute to wear during the day!
The Mickey Mouse BIOWORLD Mini Backpack is super popular and is of nice quality, so they are sure to last a while.

Hunter rain boots are a must-have for a college girl! I wear mine around campus every time it rains! There are more expensive items, but if it’s within your budget, they are of great quality and last a long time!
34. Trendy Tote Bag
Tote bags have been super popular for carrying around campus. If I am heading to a coffee shop to study or just one class for the day, I don’t want to take my big backpack. A canvas tote like this is the perfect alternative! Any girl would love to receive this as a gift.
35. Cute Makeup Bag
A new makeup bag is always one of my favorite gifts to receive because I never think to buy them for myself! This one from Glossier is the cutest thing ever and will make a great gift!
You can even put little things inside, like a face mask, scrunchie, or even a Starbucks gift card!
36. Neon Sign
Neon signs are super popular for any dorm room or apartment, and can make a great gift for Christmas! This one from Amazon is decently priced and cute.
37. Bluetooth Picture Printer
I love this next gift because I think it is such a fun idea! These mini printers hook up to your phone through Bluetooth, and you can instantly print any picture to look like a polaroid. I always want new photos around my room but never want to go to CVS to print them out, so this gift is perfect.
If she is into reading, getting her a couple of new books is a great gift! Amazon is a great place to find inexpensive editions, and if she has an IPad or Kindle, you can buy online versions there as well.
39. Adult Coloring Book
I have gotten a coloring book as a gift before and thought it was such a good idea! These adult coloring books are great to de-stress and take your mind off of things. I love coloring when I am just sitting around watching TV, instead of going on my phone.
40. String Lights
String lights are very popular for decorating dorm rooms or apartments. You can find them almost anywhere, but these tiny twinkle lights from Urban are so aesthetic!
A journal is a great, personal gift to give a college girl! Anthropologie always has the most beautiful journals. This one is so beautiful with its marbled design cover.
42. Shower Speaker
Shower speakers are a fun and inexpensive Christmas gift idea for girls. This one is from Amazon and is only $15!
43. Fun Earrings
A pair of fun earrings are also a great gift for a college girl. These champagne-style earrings have been super trendy lately, and I have been seeing them in all the boutiques in my college town. These earrings are beautiful and can spice up any outfit!
44. Casetify Phone Case
Casetify makes some of my all-time favorite iPhone cases. Phone cases are a great gift idea because no one really wants to buy one for themselves.
Casetify cases are special because they are super protective but still cute, and completely personalizable! You can put their name on the case, or initial, or anything else you want it to say. You can also customize the color and how much protection you want in your case.
45. Perfume Sampler
This next gift is great for a girlfriend! The Sephora perfume sampler lets you try out all different kinds of scents and then return it for a full-size bottle of the scent of your choice. Perfume is a great gift idea, but this way, you know she will like the scent!
46. Retro Pillow Cases
Pillowcases are another fun stocking stuffer gift! These retro floral ones from Society 6 are super cute!
47. Ray Ban Sunglasses
If you’re looking to splurge a little more, I know every college girl will be asking for a new pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses this holiday season. The round style has been particularly popular lately, as well as the hexagon shape!
A Tile is a great gift idea because it’s something she probably didn’t think she needed, but after you get it for her, she won’t be able to live without it!
The Tile versatile tracker can attach to any item to keep track of, like your keys, bags, AirPods, or anything else! They have 200 ft. Bluetooth range and are water-resistant. You can also keep track of more items for less money with their multi-packs!
49. Blue Light Glasses
As a college student, I can assure you we will not be returning this gift. Blue light glasses are something every college girl needs, as we are on our laptops and phones 24/7. They’re one of my favorite Christmas gift ideas for girls this year.
I splurged a little and bought a nicer pair during quarantine, and have been wearing them every day since. There are also less pricey options, like these tortoise ones from Amazon!
50. Mini Shoulder Bag
The mini shoulder bag trend has been seen almost everywhere. I have picked out some for myself, and they have replaced my go-to crossbody bags.
The JW Pei brand has been especially popular among college-aged girls this year. They have so many different styles and colors to choose from and are reasonably priced for the high quality they are!
51. Doc Martens
The last and final gift idea is a pair of my holy-grail boots. Doc Martens are certainly up there in price and will be one of your more expensive gifts in this post, but they last forever.
I got my pair in 8th grade and am now a senior in college, still wearing them. They are literally still in perfect condition, and I know these boots will never go out of style!
