Gifts For Girls Under $100 - Holiday Gift Guide 2012

Posted -

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 bag lady

We fell instantly in love with LeSportsac’s Basic Backpack in Heart Parade and we’re betting your favorite college girl will too once she ditches the boring one she’s been stuffing to the brims these past semesters and trades in for this uber-fun one. $88

For the one with everything

You know what the problem is with having everything in college? Having nowhere to store it. Hence why we’re suggesting this Castela Trunk from Target to add to the end of your collegiette’s bed. It’s a perfect and pretty place to store jackets and bulky sweatshirts. $83

For the one needing more wisdom

For starters, don’t tell her when you give her this gorgeous Alex + Ani Endless Knot Wrap bracelet that SHE needs more wisdom. Tell her you chose this particular Alex + Ani piece because we could all benefit from more wisdom, compassion and destiny (the symbols of this bracelet). $58

For the cold and cool girl

These Michael Kors Quilted Leather Gloves almost make the bitter cold of the winter worth it. Almost. Make her glad she chose college in the Northeast over sunny Southern California by giving her these. They certainly wouldn’t be practical at San Diego State University (sorry guys!). $88

For the furniture-a-holic

In my dorm room, the more furniture I had, the more I felt like I made it my own home. Make your collegiette’s room her own by gifting her with this practical Java Folding Hutch from The Container Store. It’s a great place to store textbooks, fun books, and frames to make any space look more home-y. $70
