Best Gifts for College Girls
Rocketbook Smart Reusable Notebook
Let’s admit a truth: college is expensive – every girl in school knows that. Sustainable gifts will always be appreciated by your college student, and the Rocketbook reusable notebook does it better than most. Connecting traditional handwriting surfaces with the power of the cloud, when a girl takes notes in the Rocketbook, they will automatically be uploaded to any popular cloud service; Afterwards, they can simply wipe the page clean and start fresh. With no notes ever lost and so many exciting color options, girls in college will be ready and eager to make the most of every lecture.
Mini Multitool Clip Set
Since their clothes rarely come with practical pockets, girls in college will need to get creative when it comes to preparing for the day. When a pocketknife isn’t practical, the multitool clip is prepared for action. Beyond the expected hair maintenance capabilities, this useful gift functions as a knife, a screwdriver, a bottle opener, and more. For work, play, and everything in between, a set of 1, 2, or 3 mini clips is a gorgeous accessory that ensures your college girl always has the right tool for the job.
The Large Ultimate Detangler Hairbrush
Thick, curly hair is difficult to manage in a 5-star bathroom set-up. In a college dorm, decent hair care can seem all but impossible. Your college girl can still get model-quality hair, though, even in an uninspired life of dormitory living. The Tangle Teezer is a hairbrush made for those girls with long, curly, unmanageable locks, toting two-tiered technology that combats frizz with damaging or breaking follicles in the process. Flexible teeth and waterproof materials lend the hairbrush well to shower use, allowing for treatment distribution without pain or tears, giving college girls luxurious hair in a less than luxurious setting.
Eco-Friendly Insect Catcher
Now that your college girl is living away from home, you won’t always be there to capture those pesky bug roommates that cause her such grief. An insect catcher is a must-have gift for any student that still struggles to deal with these intruders themselves. At 10-inches long, girls in college won’t need to get close to bees, beetles, or spiders in order to humanely capture them, and with the thumb-operated gate, you can be sure there won’t be any unexpected escapes before the pest is released back outside. Don’t let bugs continue to bug a college girl next semester!

Following make-up routines online is an age-old tradition for girls everywhere.

What’s more, with LEDs integrated into the frame, your young women will always have the right lighting to ensure an even look. When college girls reflect upon the greatest gifts they’ve received, make sure the HiMirror is at the top of the list.
LIKDAY AirPods Strap
Airpods have their uses, no doubt, but when a college girl is racing across the green between classes, maneuvering between crowds of meandering students on the quad, the last thing she wants to worry about is losing an earphone in the rush.

The anti-lost wire cable connector is gentle on the skin and on AirPods, and with fun colors like midnight blue and mint green available, this accessory can prove to be a fashion statement more than worth the gift.
Quirky Pen Zen Bamboo
