Top Christmas Gift Ideas
The holiday season will be here before we know it.
That said I started pulling together ideas for my college student who will be coming home for the holidays from Hawai’i.
These gifts are more for the techy college student which explains all the electronics.
Here are some ideas for your high school or college age student.
Holiday Gift Ideas
1. Laptop from Apple
Who doesn’t love Apple?!
Our family does and yours probably does too. NO??
My daughter already got her laptop for college but my plan is to purchase one for my husband this Christmas.
We have a desktop computer we currently share which I monopolize.
He is lucky if he uses it for an hour or two a day.
That said if we had a laptop he could use that and it would be perfect for when we travel again.
Pay for your new Mac over 12 months at 0% APR with Apple Card. Just apply for Apple Card Monthly Installments when you check out. Learn more >
I would love the MacBook Pro but I’m thinking the MacBook Air will work for his needs and mine when I borrow it to blog.
Add These Too!
2. USB-C TO USB Adapter
You will need this to connect any USB devices you have to your MacBook.
3. USB-C Charge Cable (2m)
You will need this cable to charge or sync your iphone to your laptop.
4. MacBook Adapter Extension Cable
Always helpful depending on how far you are from the outlet.
These are awesome but I actually LOVE the original version.
6. iPad Pro
Another option for some will be the iPad Pro which is just as good as a laptop for many and is super lightweight for travel.
7. Apple Pencil
Great to pair with the iPad especially if you will use it to draw. You can even get Photoshop on the iPad now!
8. Keyboard for iPad
Having the keyboard makes your iPad feel just like a laptop.
9. Power Strip Surge Protector
You will want a surge protector and this is a great option.
10. Portable Charger
Always a great gift for those who are out and about alot.
11. 10″ Charger
Perfect to keep in your backpack so your phone never goes dead.

12. Wireless Charging Station
Awesome for charging all your devices.
13. Apple Watch
This is great a great gift idea! Perfect for keeping in touch without having your phone right next to you.
14. Echo Dot
This is awesome to play music or ask questions like “Alexa what’s the weather today?”
My son actually bought us one last Christmas and we love it.
15. Echo Show
My son also bought us two of these so my daughter can call us from Hawai’i Pacific.
Don’t tell him but we haven’t used it yet. shhhhhh!!
16. Portable Speaker
Awesome gift to listen to your favorite music!
17. Laptop Lock
Perfect to keep your laptop safe and secure.
Great for anyone on a sports team or who loves working out. If you have the apple watch you won’t need this.
19. TV/ Internet Cable (Coaxial, HDMI, Ethernet)
If you have a TV and not just your laptop for watching shows you are going to need one of these.
20. Fire Stick
The best way to watch Netflix on your TV instead of your phone!
21. Alarm Clock
May be dated for the average college student some people still like a good alarm clock. It’s way better than sleeping with the phone next to you! Just saying!!
These are just a few of the awesome Christmas gift ideas for college students in 2020.
Hope it was helpful for your Holiday planning!
Have a great day full of Unicorns + Rainbows!
