Gift ideas for girls off to university

Date: 18-Aug-2016 - Written by Debbie Davies

Whether it’s their first time at university or perhaps their second or third year it’s always nice to send them off with everything they need for life as a student plus a few treats. If you have a girlfriend, daughter, sister or friend that is off to Uni. in September we have a few little gift ideas that are both practical and thoughtful and of course it’s always nice to get a little treat when you are on a student budget. They may be eating beans on toast or pasta when they get to their second term after they have spent their budget on nights out but at least they will have practical and stylish gifts to see them through the bleaker days.

So whilst the prospective student is worrying about all the essentials that they are going to need and how they are going to afford it all why not surprise them with a gift that shows thought and consideration and gives them a practical solution for everyday use. Buy them a present as part of a care package along with some other luxuries like toiletries or makeup and perfume or as a single one off treat that is built to last. We have put together some suggestions for you to treat that special lady as she begins the next momentous stage of her life. They are all leather, they are all practical yet stylish and they are all built to last. The only problem you will have is deciding which to choose. 

Designer Leather Purses for practical everyday use.

And whilst we are talking about tight budgets these cute little leather wallets are perfect for transporting around the budget for shopping or for a trip to the student union. Colourful, bright and with extra pockets they can store both money and their student and debit cards. If you are waving off a friend why not treat them to one of these as an individual gift or as part of a care package? If you are feeling generous you may even want to treat them to one of our leather bags to keep it in.
