Gift Ideas For College Students or Post- Grads

Gift Ideas For College Students or Post- Grads featured by top Texas life and style blogger Audrey Madison Stowe

Hey, y’all! Welcome back to the blog. Are we shopped out yet? I’m ALMOST done with my Christmas shopping thank the Lord. I’ve still got a few gift guides left for y’all that are still searching. This one I thought would be fun to specifically list gift ideas for college students, students about to graduate, or just graduated. I personally graduated this past May and want all of this. 

Gift Ideas For College Students or Post- Grads

Blazer For her: A fresh new blazer is always a MUST. She may be going through an interviewing process, or has an internship coming up. Everyone needs a staple blazer. I love this knit one for the winter.

Blazer For Him: Like I said above, every student needs a good blazer. This would be the perfect gift coming from mom or grandma. I like this specific blazer to change up the typical black.

Leather Wallet: A great stocking stuffer or under $100 gift to give a girlfriend. I gave Josh a wallet for Christmas about two years ago and it’s time for another. This is a card case with is nice and easy for men as they transition to the full time job life. Gift them a money clip too for the perfect duo.

Sleek Notebook: I chose this one because it’s gender neutral and super sleek for an office. I ALWAYS have a notebook, planner, and laptop with me at all times.

Pen holder for the desk: This is a cute small gift. Great idea for aunts to give, or siblings to give their brother/sister. Grab some fancy pens and this makes a great gift for the college student.

Diffuser: I had to add this in because this is such a staple in my post-grad life. We have diffusers all over the office which help keep us all calm haha. I also keep one in my room and love to diffuse lavender after a long day and to help me sleep. These are an amazing gift!

Life Planner: Can’t.Live.Without. But I’m a planner kind of girl! You can get a more masculine one for him but they have so many cute styles for women. This makes the best graduate gift or for the girl about to start a new Spring semester.

Nespresso: Y’all, I have this… and it’s the best. This is definitely a SPLURGE gift. Maybe a graduate gift or a Christmas gift from mom and dad. I love a good espresso kick and this style is small for a post-grad apartment life. It’s sleek and comes with the aeroccino which froths your milk… life changing.

Thank You Notes: A cute stocking stuffer idea!!! Perfect for the graduate who is going to be sending thank-you notes for grad gifts or maybe getting engaged soon and will need for engagement party or bridal shower gifts.

Ray-Bans: A nice pair of sunglasses for him and her is always a great gift. Splurge a little extra on them being in school or graduating and gift a pair of Ray-Bans!

Laptop Stand: Last but not least, I NEED this for myself as I stare at a laptop all day for work. this lifts it up so it’s eye level with you and just helps your eyes and hands while at a computer all day.

I hope this helps if you’re a mom of a soon to be graduate, or a best friend needing something to give your roommate. Have a wonderful day!!!
