6 Gifts Ideas for Girls off to University

Got a friend or family member who’s off to university in September? You might want to get her a special gift to wish her luck. Leaving home for the first time is nerve-racking enough but there are some things you can do to make sure your university-bound daughter, sister or friend is prepared to take on her new life and hit the ground running

Prime Hide Purple Hide Leather Purse 22808 - £22.85

Having a purse with at least one ID window is so important as a university student. Entrance to university buildings, halls of residences and libraries is almost always done either by showing a university ID to a desk clerk or swiping it through a card reader so you need to have it handy at all times. Having a purse with a specific ID window means you don’t have to fumble around looking for your card or even take it out. Students are also likely to have various bus passes, student discount cards and society membership cards that they need to present on a regular basis so a purse with more than on ID window is always a bonus. However, not just any purse will do. Seeing as this purse is going to be carted around from libraries to refectories (often not in a bag as libraries sometimes don’t allow you to take them in) it needs to be well-made from good quality leather so it can stand up to the abuse.

Idea number 2: A chic leather laptop tote

Conti of Tuscany Brown Stylish Luxurious Leather Business Bag - £270.00

Between lectures, seminars and library visits, your daughter or friend is going to have plenty of books to carry and she’s going to need to take her laptop along too. Instead of getting her a book bag and a separate laptop case, a laptop tote is a neat and stylish option. The latest leather laptop totes are extremely spacious with plenty of organisational pockets. They contain a central padded section to keep laptops safe and secure that can be removed for extra space when not needed. What’s more, seeing as laptop totes look like normal handbags rather than laptops bags, they earn extra points in the style stakes.

Idea number 3: An iPad or Kindle cover
