Do you have high school and college- aged kids like I do? Then this holiday shopping list is going to save you a ton of time and you’ll be able to enjoy the holidays more. When my kids hit their teenage years, it got harder to come up with gift ideas for them. But this year, they actually have some creative (yet practical) gift ideas. So I wanted to share with you our Amazon holiday shopping list as put together by a few high school and college students.
This post contains affiliate links to products we’ve added to our own shopping list. If you also choose to add them to your list, I hope you’ll shop through the Amazon links I provided below. I will earn a very small fee (but it does not increase what you pay) which helps me continue to bring you great content. Thank you!
Laptop Case. All of my kids are now required to bring their laptops to their in-person classes. This case will help protect the expensive equipment while they travel back and forth.
27-inch Computer Monitor. As the kids have gotten older, they’ve wanted their owner desks and computer setups. They prefer two, large side-by-side monitors. I asked my son to keep the price under $150 and he chose this Sceptre 1080p monitor.
Gaming Mouse. Continuing on the gaming… this mouse has colorful lights and 7 programmable buttons (who new!). I guess it’s the preferred gaming mouse.
Extended Gaming Mouse Pad. This mousepad is huge! It’s 31.5-inches long and very cool.
Backlit Keyboard. Redragon also makes this colorful backlit keyboard – perfect for the gamer who plays into the night.
Echo Dot. We love the Echo Dots. Just plug it in, connect it to the free app, and say things like “Alexa… play country music” and she plays. We have two now and I’m getting more to give as gifts.
Multi-Purpose Shelf. One of my kids requested this small gray shelf to place beside his bed. As a furniture refinisher, I was hesitant, but it does match his TV cabinet from Wayfair and the small coffee table I refinished for his room and it is less than $30.
Pull-up Bar. My son started using one of these pull-up bars when he went to college. It’s portable and just hangs from a doorframe.
Athletic Shorts. My boys really like long gym shorts – the type with the tiny air holes in the fabric.
Under Armour Cotton T-Shirts. My kids prefer cotton over dry-fit. These Under Armour t-shirts are 60% and super soft and wash really well.
Nike Hooded Sweatshirts. My kids live in hooded sweatshirts from September to May. These are a staple in our house in every color.
Stay tuned for even more holiday shopping lists.
