Somewhere between Thanksgiving, finals and those breaks from studying, the holiday season has snuck up on you. Stuck on what to get that girl in your sorority for Secret Santa? We’ve got you covered — just check out the HER section for gift-giving inspiration for that sorority girl, your real sister and besties. Hate shopping for your brother? Take a peek at the HIM section for some help with what to snag for your brother, boyfriend and best guy friend. Did mom tell you she just wants you to get straight A’s this semester — but you know it’s too late for that to happen? Check out the MOM section to see what could make her forget your less-than-perfect organic chemistry grade. If you’ve gotten Dad a tie for the last 10 years, you know where to look (hint: it’s the DAD section!). And if you’re finally meeting his parents (eek!!!!) or spending the holidays with a college pal, look at the HOST section for ideas for what to bring when you’re the guest!

Happy Shopping, and of course, Happy Holidays (:

For the Texter

If she’s constantly obsessing over what to say and when to say it (wait 7 minutes to reply!) she will love Her Campus’s “100 Reasons He Hasn’t Texted You Back” poster.
