The older your kids get the harder it is to shop for them. Oh for the days when I could go to Gap and come out with 2 shopping bags full of adorable clothes for under $50.
Now that they are in college you ask what they want and usually you get an answer of gift cards or cash. Okay, okay, I know that’s what they want, but it sure isn’t much fun for us mama’s, aunts and grandmothers.
Here are a few ideas for your college girl or even some of the other “girls” in your life.
These are all a great deal and you could get several or fill her stocking with fun stuff she’s bound to like and didn’t even know she wanted.

This Kate Spade pendant with a mix of silver and gold is my current favorite and a go to piece. I love how it makes it possible for me to mix metals and feel like it’s OK. I also wrap it and wear it with a little pendant for the perfect layered look.
Let me tell you just a little about some of these adorable ideas.
#5 – I ordered this MAC compact on Black Friday and it arrived over the weekend. I. am. loving. it.
It adds just a kiss of bronze, a touch of color and brightens your face. Perfect for these young girls who already have gorgeous skin and just want a hint of color, but us older women can also make the most of it. I went out today with just it, my R+F Mineral Peptides powder, mascara and lipstick and felt great about how my face looked.
#6 – Stud earrings are perfect to throw on whether you are dressed up for the day or in jeans, a tee and a ball cap. Totally versatile.
#7 & #11– Katie and I love to add a pop of color, a different pattern or texture to outfits by adding scarves. These fringe infinity scarves are so easy to throw on and head out the door. The plaid infinity scarf is one of my favorites. So cute and cozy looking.
#10 & #12 – Mini lipstick sets. I ordered a mini lipstick set by Bare Minerals (no longer available) and am loving it. These little sets are not only just too cute in their mini sizes but a perfect way to try new colors before investing in a full size tube. They are also just right to stick in your small bag for a night out.
I feel pretty confident in saying any of these items would be a hit and they are all at great price points and most of them are ON SALE!
Make your girl happy and get her something fun. Her friends will be so jealous.?
One more day til’ Friday!!!
