How To Make The Best Of Your Fall When You're Single AF

Best friends over boyfriends, always.

Happy September, everyone. Or as I like to call it, the beginning of the season that makes me feel single AF. Fall seems to be the time when everyone who is in a relationship emerges to participate in activities that are deemed "the PERFECT date ideas for Fall!" But not being in a relationship will not deter me from going apple picking simply because it's cuffing season.

The most annoying thing about these date ideas is that they are perfectly normal, fun activities to do with your friends. But they've been hijacked, and it gets super easy to feel like this:


But instead of sitting around feeling totally and completely alone, we should be finding ways to make the best of the greatest season of the year! The number one tip I can give you is this...

Hang out with your friends who are just as single as you.


Just because you're single doesn't mean you have to be lonely. Your best girlfriends are going to be your lifeline during these few months because you're going to want to do everything with them.

Apple or pumpkin picking? Go with your best friends and you're going to get the best fall Insta of all time. Is your boyfriend going to take five million pictures of you fake-laughing with a pumpkin from nine different angles? Probably not.

If he does do that, however, marry him. Immediately.

Instead of hosting a scary movie date night with a significant other, why not order the gross takeout food you would never order on a date and watch Halloweentown with your best friends?

Stocking up on cozy fall sweaters and a new pair of riding boots? Go to the mall with the people who actually love to shop for that stuff with you -- your gal pals! Bonus points if you're the same size and can steal from each other's closets all season long.


Villanova student Sophia Cook had another great idea: "No boy is going to want to go shopping with you at midnight on Black Friday. Make a night out of it with your friends instead, because they're the ones who are going to wait in line with you all night."

Pretty much everything thing boils down to this: your best friends are there for you when boys aren't. Spend time with them, and cherish your memories together! Fall just might be the best season to do so.

Believe it or not, Christmas season is upon us! *cue the Christmas music*

OK, maybe it's a little early for that but never too early to start the Christmas wishlist. Here are a few items that may be at the top of your college student's wish list.

1. Starbucks gift cards

The multiple weekly trips to Starbucks are starting to add up. One of the best gifts I could receive this Christmas is money added to my Starbucks account to fuel my ability to get through this next semester.

2. Any gift card really

Let's be real, as a broke college student, the less money I have to actually spend at the grocery store/Chipotle/Panera/anywhere the better. Gift cards are a gift from God because you can get exactly what you what without the stress of having to pay for it!

3. Leggings

Lulu Lemon, Old Navy, TJ Maxx, whatever your preference on leggings, they are essential to everyday life as a college student, yet a very annoying thing to have to purchase on your own so getting them as a gift is definitely a treat.

4. Socks

Lame, I know but so essential. Bring on the fuzzy socks!

5. Candles

If we're being honest these are probably banned in all of our apartments/dorms but we've probably burned at least two all the way down already this semester so we could use a couple new ones. Stress Relief from Bath and Body Works and Volcano are the BEST.

6. Big sweaters

Absolutely essential to get through the winter. Name something comfier than a giant sweater, leggins and fuzzy socks. It's not possible.

7. MONEY

This one is a given. Probably the best gift a college student could receive.

8. New shoes

Whether it's new running shoes, Hunter Boots, going out shoes, you can never have too many and these are always on my wish list.

9. Subscriptions to monthly care packages

So I just recently discovered that this is a thing. You can actually subscribe college students to receive monthly care packages. How amazing is that? There's nothing better than checking your mail during a hard week and discovering a care package with snacks.

10. Snacks

Another lame one I know but seriously snacks are another annoying thing to buy yourself in college so when it comes from someone else, they're even better. You can never have too many and they save us so many times throughout the semester.

11. Mugs

If your college student is anything like me, you already have 18 coffee mugs but each one is important to you and you can NEVER have too many. There's just so many cute ones out there!

12. Cute decorations for the future apartment

Whether the student is currently living in an apartment or will be next year, a cute decoration or two is such an exciting thing to receive and will fuel our eager desire to start designing.

13. Coffee

The key to survival in college, and expensive for us to buy on our own so again, such a great gift to receive this Christmas.

14. S'well water bottle

These are so trendy right now and so necessary for college students to take with them, whether it's to class or to the gym.

15. Makeup

If you know your student well and know their favorites, this is a great gift idea.

16. Books

Okay this one perhaps is risky. Some find this one of the greatest gifts of all time, especially if you happen to get them one on their wish list or it could perhaps be not such a great gift if the student isn't a "reader."

17. Scarves

A great "go to" gift. You can never go wrong with getting a college girl a stylish infinity scarf.

18. Subscription to Spotify

Nothing is more annoying than the $5-$15 that comes out of our bank accounts every month but you could change that by covering that cost for us ;).

19. College Apparel

One of the greatest gifts for a college student is more t-shirts/sweatshirts to represent their school because lets be honest, you can never have too many.

20. Blanket

Nothing beats a soft TJ-Maxx blanket to keep one your bed. This is guaranteed to make your college student happy without breaking the bank.

21. Phone case

If your student is anything like me, they get sick of their phone case pretty quickly and its always exciting to be able to switch things up.

22. Gum

Okay yes, this one is a little weird but gum is essential after your morning coffee and goes pretty quickly so its always nice to have some extra packs laying around when its needed.

23. Nail Polish

Nail polish is one of those things I never buy for myself but is essential and new colors are always an exciting gift to receive.

24. Candy

The ultimate "stocking stuffer."

25. Love

When in doubt (or if you're broke), love is the greatest gift of all!
