Christmas Gifts for Women

 

Women can be easy to buy for or they can be hard to buy for – depending on the woman! I have curated a list of Christmas gifts for women that will give you lots of unique gift ideas whether you need gifts for women in their 40s or gifts for women over 50 or really, any woman. Because It’s not about her age. It’s about knowing the woman.

What does she love? What does she really dislike? What does she think is cheesy? What are her hobbies and interests?

Read the Christmas Gifts for Women guide below for ideas in many categories.

30 Ideas for Best Gifts for Teens and Best Gifts for 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. Read through this list of Best Gifts for Teens and Best Gifts for College Students for awesome present ideas that will not break the bank.

Best Graduation Gift Books 93

NOW YOU TELL ME: 12 COLLEGE STUDENTS GIVE THE BEST ADVICE THEY NEVER GOT

By: Sheridan Scott

The book offers advice from many different perspectives. There is someone in this book to which every college freshman and parent can relate. Some of the chapters are skim-worthy and some are highlight-almost-every-line-worthy.

One of the best chapters is written by a film school student in Los Angeles. He has some of the most unconventional, but yet REAL advice: “Don’t bring your autographed picture of Darth Vader to the dorm, and do eat your veggies; don’t grow a beard, and do realize that though the college years are great, your best years are yet to come.” While his morals are a little looser than I would prefer, he has arrived at this enlightened realization, “come to terms with the fact that you’re not going to find lasting romance drunk in someone’s yard off-campus.” His chapter is a MUST READ!

Cover of book: "The Naked Roommate"

THE NAKED ROOMMATE: AND 107 OTHER ISSUES YOU MIGHT RUN INTO IN COLLEGE

By: Harlan Cohen

I first heard about this book at my oldest son’s college orientation. One of the deans held up the For Parents Only version of The Naked Roommate and insisted we all needed a copy. It is a fun book with a fun title that will entice the recipient to actually open it up and read it. The advice is practical and realistic. It covers topics like the summer before college, move-in day, roommates,  Greek life, dating, drugs and alcohol, safety, health, and academics.

College Student Health Handbook

THE ULTIMATE COLLEGE STUDENT HEALTH HANDBOOK

By: Jill Grimes, MD

The Ultimate College Student Health Handbook falls in the practical category. It is written in a conversational-style, that is never condescending. This book and a DIY First Aid Kit will be both read and used.

Dr. Grimes covers all sorts of college health issues and gives advice they can use in an emergency – like how to help a friend who has passed out from overindulging. She talks about every day issues like test anxiety, home sickness, the freshman fifteen, “something’s stuck in my eye,” as well as more serious issues like date rape, birth control pills, and “Is my stomach pain an appendicitis?” (We have been there on the appendicitis! See What To Do If  Your College Student Has a Medical Emergency for our experience and some advice.)

Dr. Grimes has two daughters who are in college and also works at the University of Texas at Austin, so she knows how to talk to and relate to college students and also the common medical concerns of college kids.

Steadfast by Tabitha Allman

STEADFAST: A COLLEGE GIRL’S GUIDE TO STANDING FIRM

By: Tabitha Allman

As a recent college graduate Tabitha Allman knows what it is like in college. She also knows that attending a Christian college does not shield young women from the realities of the world. She discusses how to handle homesicknesses, stress, feeling different and fitting in, helping a roommate who is having problems, setting appropriate boundaries, and dating. And she knows that dating on a Christian campus is a whole other thing than on most campuses because of the pressure to find a mate.

She jokes about how the “walk of shame” on a Christian campus is graduating without an engagement ring. This book is perfect for any of the graduates in your life who are attending a Christian college or any college.

Best Graduation Gift Books 94

DO YOUR LAUNDRY OR YOU’LL DIE ALONE

By Becky Blades

Ok, I LOVE this book. It is funny. It is pithy. It is practical. It is short. And it will be read. It contains 271 gems including #146: “Offer your seat to anyone older or less healthy than you. And occasionally to someone who made an inappropriate shoe choice” and #19: “Never put anything on the internet that you would not want to discuss in a job interview, on a first date, or with your mother.” She includes many encouragements to be kind to others, to cut them some slack, and how to truly make others feel good.

knock by rebecca otis leder

KNOCK: HOW TO OPEN DOORS AND BUILD CAREER RELATIONSHIPS THAT MATTER

By: Rebecca Otis Leder

As a blogger I related to Rebecca’s opening concerning people who reach out without any thought or care put into their pitch. I receive emails from people who want me to add links or feature them without it being apparent they know anything about who I write for or the type of posts I create. Their pitches are completely impersonal and go straight to my “junk” folder.

College students and those who will need to network in their career need this book. Knock gives the why and how to building actual meaningful relationships. We all need help from those who have already gone down our path, but sending out impersonal emails or asking to pick someone’s brain over coffee is not the way to receive help or to offer anything to the potential mentor in return. This book offers a practical and step by step approach that will be appreciated by college students as they seek career guidance, internships, and jobs.
