Gift Ideas for Teens and College Students

Shopping for teens and college students can be fun and challenging. It seems that the older kids get, the smaller and more expensive the presents are. I remember needing two rolls of wrapping paper to wrap a giant plastic car for my toddlers. Now I sometimes need barely a square of wrapping paper and the gift costs 5 times what the giant plastic car cost. But, if you know where to look, there are many gifts for this age group that do not need a charging cable.

  1. This is a great list! Thank you for putting it together. Not only is it great for grads but some would be awesome for housewarming gifts, or birthday presents for college students.

  2. This is a great post! My favorites are the subscription box (because it’s like a regularly scheduled care package!) and the noise cancelling head phones. They can be really great for studying.

  3. Perfect timing and super duper helpful!

  4. I want some of these for myself!
