🎶On the third day of Christmas, Amaris gave to you…🎶 over a dozen holiday gift ideas for the homebody college girl! In case you missed it, I launched The Ultimate College Girl Holiday Gift Guide on December 1st. The entire page is filled with gift ideas for your favorite college student. Before I purchase gifts for Christmas, I like to read about each product. Decisions should not be made solely on how pretty the picture looks. For this reason, each gift idea below is listed with the product image and a brief description of its use. Additionally, scroll to the bottom of this post for homebody gift ideas from small businesses!

Best Gifts for the College Homebody
1. Teddy Bear Robe @ Pottery Barn
Nothing says homebody more than lounging around in a fluffy robe. This robe from Pottery Barn comes in different, soothing colors and there is the option for customization.
2. 2-Pack Chenille Socks @ H&M
Chenille socks are as cozy as they look. In my opinion, the material feels fluffy and silky at the same time. They can be worn alone, but they are just thin enough to pair well with slippers.
3. UGG Women’s Scuffette @ UGG
Slippers are a homebody’s must-have. UGGs may have gotten a bad rap somewhere along the line, but they reign supreme as the warmest, most comfortable winter shoes out there.
4. Getaway Eye Mask @ Ban.Do
Every student dreams of the perfect nap, free from interruptions. Make that dream a reality with an eye mask that blocks out the sun. In dorms without dark-out curtains, eye masks are life-savers.
5. 15 lbs Weighted Blanket @ Walmart.com
A 15-pound weighted blanket, plus an eye mask. Need I say more? Give the gift of better sleep this holiday season.
6. Sherpa Bed Blanket @ Target
Okay, I said I wasn’t saying anymore, but a fluffy blanket?! Nothing beats lazy mornings wrapped in a warm blanket with a hot drink in your hand. Naps aren’t bad either.
7. Summer Lovin’ Dorm Collage Kit @ Etsy
Wall collages are my favorite, large home décor items. As a student, large posters or hanging wall art is a no-go. Nails, holes, torn wallpaper, eek. Collages cover the same amount of area with less damage. Check out my Instagram for pictures of my wall collages.
8. Serene House Pink Travel Diffuser @ Crate & Barrel
Unless your student lives outside of on-campus student accommodations, candles and other flammable materials are prohibited. Diffusers create the same calming atmosphere.
9. InstaBox i30 Portable Clock with Bluetooth Speaker @ The Home Depot
With the InstaBox i30, your favorite student can keep track of time and enjoy her favorite tunes. Instead of listening to music through headphones or ear pods, connect a phone through Bluetooth.
10. The Little Book of Hygge @ HarperCollins
Gen-Z students are up to trying pretty much every trend. Hygge is a trendy Danish method for wellness. The Little Book of Hygge will essentially teach your homebody how to live even more comfortably.
11. The 5 Ingredient College Cookbook @ Zulily
No dorm room is complete without a cookbook for the college student. With five ingredients, students can prepare easy meals for themselves. The recipes are so simple, novice cooks will be fine.
12. Home Decor Gift Cards @ HomeGoods/ Bed Bath & Beyond/ Target
Sometimes it is hard to choose the right gift. With a gift card from HomeGoods, Bed Bath & Beyond, or Target, your homebody college girl will be able to pick her own gift.
Small Business Homebody Gift Ideas
1. Macramé Fringe Keychain @ Lynn + Lyle
Keep them organized and cute. My worst fear is losing my school ID while walking and losing access to all the buildings. This macramé keychain makes it hard to misplace your ID or keys. It can also clip onto purses.
2. Key Tags @ Towne9
Nothing screams home-sweet-home, or in this case dorm-sweet-dorm, like the jingling of keys. Towne9 on Etsy features several key tag designs with cute sayings. Combined with a macrame keychain from above and she will love coming home even more.
3. Shower Chic Gift Pack @ LABeautyologist
This set is on my wish list, and probably wins the prize for the most practical and adorable towel set I have ever seen. In case you do not know, this set is sold by LA Beautyologist, one of the top Black estheticians on Twitter. So not only are you supporting a business that actually cares about your skin, but also supporting a black woman! Yay!
