A College Student's Christmas Wishlist

I asked several college students, and these items are on their Christmas List.


Are you struggling to make your perfect Christmas list? Do you need a few extra things to add to yours? Here is what other college students are asking for for Christmas. The list ranges in price and gender, so there is something for everyone.

Weighted Blanket

These are so much better than any other regular blanket. Why bother with one foot sliding through the corner of the blanket when these blankets stay in place and keep you warmer than ever.


Rain boots, riding boots, winter boots, dress boots, booties, boots GALORE! Boots are so versatile and can be worn with so many outfits. Find the perfect pair for your college student.

Fuzzy Socks

Any girl would agree that fuzzy, wool, or thick socks would make perfect stocking stuffers. Whether they are worn inside your boots or just to relax on the couch while watching a movie, a pair of socks would definitely be put to good use.

Collegiate gear/accessories

The answer I got was specifically Mississippi State stuff, but not to be biased, any college student could benefit off of extra t shirts, sweatshirts, decals, and other items to represent their own school.


While MacBooks are the best, (I'm biased; I have one.) any computer would be great for a college student. Since most classes are offered online or require online assignments, a student may be lost in college without their own laptop.

iPhone XS Max

Apple is always making new products, and this is one of their hottest and newest items. Any Apple fan would be head over heels for the newest iPhone.



Who doesn't love a new precious ball of fur to love on?!!? A puppy should be on everyone's Christmas wish list. After all, we are wishing, right?

Gift Cards

Are you afraid you might pick out the wrong color or size? If you don't know what to buy someone, but you know they like a certain store or website, a gift card is one of the best things to give, allowing them to shop for themselves.


One person wants a jazz piano book, and while this may not apply to everyone, there are plenty of music options for the college student you have in mind. Even a simple Spotify or Apple Music gift card could make any student happy on Christmas morning.


Our biggest need - money. Whether we use it for our education, a quick snack on campus, or on a personal item for ourselves, any money we are given would never be put to waste.


These are not only for note taking, but for writing our favorite memories and daily journeys and discoveries.

 Pens, pencils, highlighters, markers, etc.

We always need backup writing utensils. We lose them and forget them everywhere.


To capture all of our favorite memories, a camera would always be used.

 Pictures, Canvases, Wall Decor

Most of our walls are empty, so anything we can hang is a plus.

 Netflix Gift Cards

Some days we need a study break, and Netflix is on our monthly bills, so a gift card to cover this expense would be great for any college student.


Girls love sweaters. Especially since the winter temps are arriving.

 Rain Gear - Jacket, Umbrella, Boots

We need these for our walks to class in the rain.


A girl can never have too much makeup.


These make our spaces extra homey, and they smell good too.


These are helpful on those long sunny drives home.


These help us sleep even better at night.


Every girl needs that statement piece to complete their outfit.


Most of us have had the same backpack since high school, and it is falling apart. That means it's time for a new one!


To keep all of the cash and gift cards we will get for Christmas in. *wink wink*


For the people who always have their nose in a book, a new one to add to their library could never be a bad idea.

Send this list to your family and friends so that they will have more ideas of what to get you this Christmas!

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Everything You Need To Know About COVID-19 Outcomes, Because It Has To End Eventually

You've heard a lot of possible outcomes thrown around, let's break them down.

If you log into any social media app, you will be overwhelmed with self-appointed experts, preaching the correct way to end this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy chair. Aside from those dramatic children on TikTok, it's all anyone can talk about. There's an obvious reason for this — the pandemic has taken our world and flopped it on its head, bringing confusion, angst, and an obnoxious amount of sourdough bread into our lives.

All this to say, it's easy to get lost amidst the storm of arguments online. Instead, it's best to break down what's actually going on so we can have an educated perspective as we look to work together to move past our current predicament.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.
