14 Things That Every College Guy Is Asking For In 2018

Holiday season is officially upon us! Soon the snow will stay and the trees will be up and decorated. But with Christmas right around the corner, this means Christmas shopping is here as well. Shopping for your boyfriend who's in college can be quite stressful when he's indecisive and doesn't know what he really wants or says "I don't care." I went around and asked my guy friends and my boyfriend about things they would like under the tree this year and they all seemed to be the same or relate to one another. Here are some gifts you can surprise your boy that will be on his wish list this year!

1. Video games


If a guy in college doesn't play video games, is he really a guy in college? There are TONS of video games available in all different genres and many of them go on sale for Black Friday. Some of the hottest games this year already include Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Spider-Man.

2. Tickets to his favorite sports team


Tickets to a professional sporting event are always top of your boy's list. Surprise your hunny with tickets to watch his favorite sports team. You can never go wrong with watching his favorite player dominate on the court/field!

3. Shoes

Who doesn't like a brand new pair of shoes? Every one of my guy friends my age loves keeping their shoe game on point. Whether they're a fuzzy pair of moccasin's to keep his feet warm all winter or a new pair of work out shoes to keep him grinding at the gym, he'll love them.

4. Clothes


Clothes are the perfect gift for anyone in college. They can range from anything from bottoms to tops. Shock your lover with a sweatshirt with his favorite basketball team's logo on it.

5. Cologne

Almost always cologne is listed under my boyfriend's Christmas list. Not only is it a present for him, but then I get to obsess over how good he smells! My boyfriend's favorite cologne is Bleu De Chanel.

6. Headphones

College is all walking to class, and when we walk to class, 99% of the time we have our headphones on. A brand new pair of Beats really can make that trip to class extra enjoyable with good music and good headphones.

7. Apple Watch

Smart watches are today's newest trend and always on college-aged kids wish lists. Apple's newest Apple Watch series 4 just came out not too long ago. Your boy can track how much he walks, runs and can even text you back on this little watch.

8. Gift cards


The safest way to go are gift cards of your man's favorite places. Either clothes to food to gas cards, he'll be happy with any of them.

9. His favorite player's jersey


This is always a safe gift too. Every guy who is any guy has a favorite athlete. The Milwaukee Brewers just made franchise history with 102 wins and had their first playoff appearance this year since 2011, amaze your BF with this Christian Yelich jersey!

10. Beer


Man's real best friend.

11. Concert tickets


Concert tickets may only be a piece of paper or a ticket on your phone, but the experience will last a lifetime for your man. Almost every guy wants to see their idol at least once.

12. Socks

Guys love socks! There's also so many different kinds and brands you can buy to keep his feet nice and warm all winter long. My boyfriend has so many of the pair pictured above, they go with everything. You can buy them here.

13. Something for his gaming system

My boyfriend is always asking for things for his PlayStation 4. Guys always want to keep their consoles fresh and updated with new controllers, headsets or extra storage to keep giving them the best gaming experience.

14. Cash


Still don't know what to get your partner in college? CASH. They can literally buy anything with cash (duh!). The easiest and simplest way to go... maybe even the best way!

Dedicate Your Summer To Bettering Yourself For Yourself, Not Your Ex

Why waste energy on an ex who doesn't care about you anymore?


I'm single for the summer (yet again, no shock there) but this summer there's something in the air that just feels different. It's the feeling of true acceptance of my single status.

Last summer I was single when I really didn't want to be. My heart with still holding out for a guy who wasn't interested in anything more than my friendship. It took me from late March all the way until Halloween to get over those feelings. However, while working through those tough feelings that summer, I came to enjoy my time on my own and not talking to anyone except my best friends. I didn't have to worry about when I'd get a text back, or if I'd be left on read, or who he'd be out with since I wasn't around. The only thing I needed to worry about was my paychecks and tan lines.

Sometimes after breaking things off with someone who you put so much effort into, whether it was a boyfriend, an almost relationship, or even a friend with benefits, it's easy to want to show off on social media and make them regret ever hurting you or ending things. Why? It's a nice little ego boost, sure, but after those few seconds of glee from the fact that you know they've seen and maybe even liked your picture or your tweet, or saw your story on Snapchat, do you still feel happy? No, you go right back to feeling like crap, whether you want to admit it or not. Stop making yourself all about them when that ship has sailed and start being all about you.

Your ex is off doing their own thing, maybe thinking about you, but obviously not enough to want you back in their life the way you used to be. They are probably out there finding a new person to take your spot because they don't have you at their beck and call anymore. If they're also showing off to show you how much better they are without you or to make you jealous...why are you still following them or still participating in this sick little game for attention? Grow up and block them so you don't have to keep seeing their posts, or be adult enough to stop if you're doing the same as well. If it's only you posting, chances are you just look stupid, so stop before you really embarrass yourself. I was that person, and I know first hand how embarrassed I am for acting the way I did.

Summer is synonymous for doing whatever the hell you want. Wear what you want, say what you want, and be the best version of yourself that only a high dose of Vitamin D can bring out. Your ex is an ex for many reasons. You have to set aside the summer for you and what benefits you only. Don't concern yourself with an ex who doesn't care in the least about you anymore. Coming from someone who posted thirst traps aimed at a specific person along with countless shady AF stories on Snap and Insta in the hopes that this one person and their friends would see it, just stop and save yourself the energy as well as regret.

We're all adults, it's time to stop the petty posts and photos. Post your thirst trap for yourself because you're a sexy queen who doesn't need anyone but herself. Once you start focusing on yourself this summer, instead of your ex, you'll realize just have great it feels to truly be free.
