Holiday Gift Guide: High School Edition

2014 Holiday Gift Guide (1)

The holidays are here! Time is flying by, especially for all you high school juniors and seniors. With SAT prep, college applications, and final exams, you probably haven’t had much time to shop for gifts…or to think about your own wish list. Luckily, we are here to help!

Browse our list of recommended gifts, and find something unique for each of your friends (and maybe a little something for yourself). If you don’t have the time or budget to shop this year, just remember – a nice card or batch of homemade cookies always does the trick. Always.

Happy Holidays!

2014 High School Gift Guide


A Netflix subscription (from $7.99 a month) or Netflix gift card (various denominations), because high school is exhausting and everyone needs a way to sit back and just chill.

liz lemon snuggie


A Snuggie ($14.99), because they’re warm and cozy and hilariously awesome. You and your friends can wear them ironically … or not.

iphone lens

An iPhone lens, like this Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens System ($69.95), for clearer iPhone images. Since that’s the only camera most people use, anyway.


Maybe put these luxurious headphones ($137.99) on your wish list, since they’re a bit of a splurge. They’d be great for listening to relaxing music as you study.


Apple Nike + iPod Sport Kit for iPod Nano ($29.99), because exercise is vital for mind and body health. Plus, taking a quick jog is a great way to spend a study break!


A backpack upgrade ($39.99), because you and your friends need something stylish to carry all your books in, and these Herschel backpacks come in tons of cool colors and patterns.


A Northface jacket (from $149.99), because it’s great to look nice even when it’s insanely cold outside.


A stylish notebook ($9.95), so your notes can be hipster, too.
