Simply Elegant Gift Guide: College Girl

After a wonderful Thanksgiving and now that it is December, it is time to start thinking about what items to give to family and friends this season. One of my favorite parts of the holidays is taking the time to think about what gift would be perfect for each person on my list. I won't deny that I really enjoy shopping and often times I think it is more fun to shop for others than yourself. So over the next few weeks I will be sharing a range of gift options that I have curated for everyone on your list, from your parents, to your siblings and friends. 

To start off a series of gift guides here on Simply Elegant, I thought we would start with gifts for the 20-something college girl. As I am still in college these item are right up my alley, either I already have them in my closet (!) or they are on my wish list. I always try to buy pieces that will last me year after year, and all these items fall into that category, while at the same time being essential pieces as you head from the library to the bar for a cocktail. From desk accessories to a cozy hat for those snowy winter days. I aimed to cover it all and hope that you will be inspired by the items below.
