Gifts For Girls Under $25 - 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 “jewel”

She loves jewelry, but every time you try to shop for her you notice she already has this and that and something that looks eerily similar to that one over there. If she’s got that much going on, she could always use another great way to display them like this Umbra Jewelscope Jewelry Tree. Practical and pretty. $20

For the swift-est

She’s got tickets for the 2013 tour and she knows all the words to “I Knew You Were Trouble,” “We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together” AND “All Too Well” already. She loves Taylor Swift and short of shipping Taylor to her house for a post-breakup song sesh, you’re out of Taylor-related ideas. Here’s one, Taylor’s Wonderstruck perfume! $19

For the easily bored iPhone user

My BSS (best sorority sister) recently commented that she wished iPhone cases were more like jewelry - that you could accessorize them to your outfit. If your BSS or BFF has deep thoughts like this, this Fun Stuff Hearts iPhone case may be your winner. $16

For the sh*tty friend (jk, jk)

How many “Sh*t _____ People Say” videos did she watch? If we’re in the double digits, she positively needs this “Sh*t Girls Say” book by Kyle Humphrey & Graydon Sheppard. She will be cracking up every time she opens it. $15

For the hair-y traveler

Limited space, large hair needs? Black 15-in-1’s Signature Travel Kit will be your miracle kit. The TSA-approved case comes with TWICE A WEEK Miracle Shampoo and Conditioner as well as their Miracle Hair Treatment which will keep the recipient’s hair looking better than ever while traveling. $20

For the intimate friendship

We weren’t kidding when we said this was for an intimate friendship. You don’t usually give thongs to the girl you sort of know in your sorority Secret Santa. But maybe you should. Affinitas Intimates Nicole Brazilian Thong is sexy, affordable and soft. Winner! $17
