Here are some great gift ideas for the girl who is starting her life as an adult! These are just some basic essentials that can help you at least fake it 'till you make it!
There are going to be many days where you just want to make an easy meal an then come home from a long day and have it all cooked and ready. A crock pot is perfect for this and you can even make amazing desserts. Crockpots are typically on a super sale on Black Friday so be on the lookout for that.
There is nothing more aggravating then wanting to cook a nice meal for your self and getting hand cramps every other second because your Walmart knives can't cut through a piece of chicken. Although sometimes a nice knife or knife set can be expensive, it will be a great investment because you won't need to buy a new knife every year.
There is nothing worse than waking up on a rainy day knowing you are about to be soaked when you walk outside. Whether its Hunter boots, Sperrys, Duck Boots or just Target rain boots get to wear out in the rain besides Vans. There is nothing worse than walking around in wet shoes all day.
Although this is a more expensive gift, having a reliable computer is extremely important! If you can't rely on your computer you won't be able to get your work or school work done and you could lose important documents and it will cause a lot of extra
The older you get, the more important it becomes to read. There is so much knowledge that is to be gained from reading and why not try to absorb all the knowledge that you can while you're young! There are also a lot of books out there on how to adult which are usually hilarious but still provide a lot of help. If you are looking at a Kindle, Amazon usually releases pretty good deals on their products for the holiday season.
Smoothies are such an easy and healthy snack/meal that you can make and if you get one of the smaller, personal blenders it makes your life so easy! Along with crock pots, blenders are also always on sale on Black Friday so be on the lookout for one you like and share it with your friends and family!
In the next few years of your life, you are bound to end up somewhere that you need to have business attire. Whether it is a presentation at school, an interview, or maybe even a headshot photo it is critical to have a nice outfit stowed away in your closet.
For those of us who are always on the go, it is really nice to have a portable charger, especially one that holds multiple charges. This is such an easy gift to ask for and they are always on sale at Christmas time. Once you get one you'll never go back to your dead phone days!
Whether it is a Swell, Hydroflask, or just an insulated bottle off Amazon, a reusable water bottle is so crucial to everyday life! Hopefully, you want one to help save the environment but a nice water bottle could also keep your water cold all day long which is perfect for those of us who are always super busy.
This may sound like a silly present and although it is not something tangible that you can have Christmas morning, it is something your future self will thank you for. Instead of having a relative buy you a present you don't really need, you should have them invest some of their money into a stock for you. Then over the years, you can watch your money grow in the market and sell it whenever need be. If you're on the road to adulating you might as well start with investing in your future.
When most people are in high school, they look at all of the big schools that are known around the country. Schools like Rutgers, Ohio State, UCLA, University of Pittsburgh and West Virginia University are often at the top of peoples' lists. Believe it or not, some people don't want to attend a huge college. If you're like me, you like having small class sizes where your professors get to know you and you always see someone you know when you're walking on campus.
Once you decide where you're going and become a student there, you constantly hear the same comments from people, whether they be good or bad- but you wouldn't want it any other way. Here are signs that you go to a small school that no one has ever heard of:
1. People always mess up your mascot
"Broncs? Like the Denver Broncos?"
"No. Just the Broncs."
2. "Oh I've never heard of that. Where is it?"
3. "Wouldn't you rather go to *insert huge state school here*?"
The answer is always the same — nope.
4. You find people all the time who know or is related to someone who went to your school
"Oh, my cousin's friend went there!"
5. "Your class size is what?!?"
6. You've never had class in a lecture hall

Or class with more than 50 students.
7. When people come to visit, they can't believe how small your campus is compared to theirs
Well, at least we can get up 10 minutes before class starts instead of an hour to catch a bus.
8. Dining options are limited
But you joke around and make the most of it, secretly hoping your campus will open a Panera or Chipotle like every other school.
9. People are amazed that you actually get to know your professors and the people in your classes, and that they get to know you
Not to mention that professors are a great reference for getting a job after graduation.
10. If you went to a big high school, your college isn't much bigger
There are about 1,000 students per class, so only around 300-400 more students than you graduated high school with.
11. Your school doesn't have all of the big sports, like football
But hey, at least we're still undefeated!
12. When you get into your major classes, you always have the same people in them
13. You can't find anything with your school's logo on it, so constantly buy more apparel from the bookstore
You walk out of there $100 poorer with a new sweatshirt, mug, and sweatpants that you didn't need.
14. You get really excited when someone has actually heard of your school
