Gifts For Girls Over $100 - Holiday Gift Guide 2012

In theory, girls aren’t too hard to shop for. In theory. In actuality, there are complexities you never saw coming when exchanging gifts with a collegiette. Odds are she is shopping savvy, regardless of whether her knowledge and preference be for Gucci bags or LL.Bean boots. The other thing to think about? Unlike guys, she is more likely to buy herself “presents” throughout the year when her budget allows for it. So it’s time to think creatively. That’s where we come in. Read on.

For the fan-girl

If she’s straining her eyes watching 10 shows a week on her computer, and you are ready to shell out big bucks, this 22-inch Samsung TV will make you a star this holiday season. $228

For the rocker

Definitely not for everyone, but if you know a girl who can pull this off you have to get her this Chloe + Isabel Rocker Chic Chain + Spike Bib Necklace. Nothing will ever look boring if she’s rocking it with this statement piece. $135

For the photographer

Instagram is so 2012. And the holiday season means it’s nearly 2013. The new “old-fashioned” way of taking pictures for the photographer you know is a Polaroid Digital Camera with Built-in Photo Printer. You can share them digitally (natch) or go super-old school and (gasp!) hand out insta-print outs. $290

For the comfiest of comfy

Say what you want to say about Uggs being so 2004, the shoes are comfortable. Too comfortable to deny your favorite collegiette of them. We love the short-y ones (aka Classic Mini)  as they work as slippers or cozy shoes to wear to the library. $135

For the fashionista

Impress your recipient with your fashion sense by wrapping up this Free People Tapestry Moto Jacket. The motorcycle-esque jacket is seriously shabby chic, with an emphasis on chic, and will jazz up any outfit your fashionista puts together. $148

For the tech-y


This holidy season gift her with a killer tablet for the PC set: The Microsoft Surface (bonus: it comes in pink!). But seriously, why do we love this tablet above all others? For one, the keyboard — because we all do enough typing on screens as it is. We also love how thin it is — yet it has what we all need: a USB port. Another feature we dig for collegiettes? The Kickstand to prop it up for easy movie viewing! Starting at $499
