Favorite Products of 2015 // Collegiate Gift Guide

December 01, 2015

There are only 25 days left until Christmas is upon us (even less if you're reading this at a later date) and it's time to get into our full fledged shopping mode. In case you didn't find/get any good Cyber Monday deals, I'm here to help. I've compiled an easy list for you to buy for all sorts of people in your lives. These lists also contain some of my favorite products of 2015, so you're going to love them too. :)

I've broken them up into 3 categories: lifestyle, crafting, and fashion/beauty. Hopefully all of these will work for someone special in your life! I have links to where you can purchase the products as well (most are affiliate links, but some not). Let's dive right into it!


1. EOS Lipbalm

I love all of the EOS products, but the lip balm is my favorite! They have so many different varieties and colors that you can give one to everyone.

2. Notepads

Themed notepads are the best! I always snatch them up for a dollar when I can, but you can check out these themed ones that will last all year!

3. Heated Blanket

Heated blankets are what get me through the winter, so grab one for a loved one. I have a snowflake patterned one, but this blue one is adorable!

4. 10 foot iPhone charging cable

Once you go longer than a 3 foot cable, your life will change forever. Get a multi pack and share them with your friends!

5. External Charger

These inexpensive external chargers come in handy when you're on the go. Plus, you can always find them in numerous colors.


1. Tim Holtz Mini Stapler

I've been obsessed with my mini stapler ever since I got it! It adds a fun and simple touch to any project.

2. Gold paint

Just add a little gold paint and it'll bring everything together! Maybe grab a silver bottle too for a fun set.

3. Aqua brushes

These brushes are amazing for beginning or messing around with water coloring. I like how they come in three different sites.

4. Twine

Everyone needs twine, you may not know it, but you do.

5. VersaFine Ink

This ink has been on my wishlist for a while now, it's a must have!


1. Quilted jacket

These lightweight, yet warm jackets are sure to please anyone in a chillier climate.

2. Mark Eye Shadows

You can get these from any AVON representative, but these eye shadows are so amazing! I love the neutrals especially.

3. ELF Eyelash curler

It's just one of those things that we forget to replace every once and a while and who doesn't want a spare?

4. Combat boots

I LOVE my brown combat boots for the winter. They are light weight, but when paired with fuzzy socks they're perfect!

5. OPI nail polish

Get a friend's nails dressed to the nines with this adorable and affordable mini nail polish gift set by OPI. OPI has amazing and vivid colors that are sure to not disappoint.
