One of my favorite memories as a child was opening my stocking on Christmas morning. It was such a thrill to see all the fun little gifts my parents could stuff into a cute little stocking. However, the older I got the more my parents would ask me what I wanted in my stocking. Although this seems like a normal and effortless task, it took away that surprise on Christmas morning.
I understand that it can be difficult to create a satisfactory stocking. Some parents have kids traveling hundreds of miles just to come and visit from college. While it’s easy to stuff their stockings with candy and basic essentials, you want to make it fun! So here are 10 practical yet fun gifts you can put in your college students stocking this year!
What’s a stocking without some fun?! Poo~Pourri is the perfect side-kick during the Holiday season! In college, it can be embarrassing to leave the bathroom after your morning coffee hits you. Poo~Pourri lets you leave the porcelain sleigh smelling better than you found it. It’s super simple. Before you use the bathroom, spray 3-5 sprays on the water in the porcelain sleigh and take care of business as normal. The protective barrier traps odor under the surface, before it ever begins! All you’ll smell is a refreshing bouquet of natural essentials oils. Flush yeah!
You can shop the image above to shop for your own bottles of Poo~Pourri. Use code WANDER for a 20% discount on your order. You can also take advantage of the free shipping on orders over $19.95!
My two favorites for the holiday season are Secret Santa and Merry Spritzmas®. Poo~Pourri Secret Santa is a blend of cinnamon, vanilla and citrus natural essential oils that eliminates bathroom odor before it begins by creating a barrier on the water's surface. It's a Spritzmas miracle! Merry Spritzmas® is a blend of peppermint, vanilla citrus natural essential oils.
2. Bluetooth Speaker
In college, everyone is always jamming to music whether we are in the shower, enjoying girl’s night, or studying for exams. Bluetooth speakers are miniature-sized, making it completely portable! Enjoy listening to your favorite music on the go.
3. Nail Polish
Add a few new colors of nail polish to her collection this Christmas! They are one of the best stocking stuffers and she will use them all year long. This year, stick with what is in style and pick some neutral or nude nail polish colors.

5. Gift Cards
A college student probably doesn’t have a lot of extra money to spend on extra little luxuries like a new video game or a music subscription.
No holiday look is complete without kissable lip! Plus, a college girl could never have enough lipstick! Pick up a great color and help boost their confidence.
Anyone can stay warm on those cold winter nights in the dorms, thanks to super-soft and comfy socks. I still love getting colorful and fun socks during Christmas. They are definitely a stocking stuffing must!
8. Inspirational Print
Inspirational prints are my favorite! They give motivation to not only keep grades at their best but also inspiration for who we want to become.
About 80% of students walk around campus around with headphones in their ears or when they’re studying. Many studies show that studying can be improved while listening to certain kinds of music. I love to listen to music while walking to my classes to help me get focused. Sometimes teachers might assign homework to listen to a podcast or a video so if you want to keep the peace with your roommate or those around you, you’ll need to use your headphones!
10. Hair Ties
It doesn't matter if she got hair ties last Christmas. Chances are, they've all mysteriously disappeared and now she has one or two left (the same problem exists with her bobby pins!). Just do the right thing and give her some nice new hair ties this Christmas. Her stocking won't be complete without them!
