12 Great Gift Ideas for Your College Guy

College kids can be difficult to buy for, especially boys…or men I should say. I’ve compiled a list of ideas in a variety of price ranges for those special people in your life. Many of these came from my own sons’ wish lists.

Echo Plus (2nd Gen) Bundle with Philips Hue Bulb

Don’t ask me why boys think the ability to turn on and off the lights with your voice is cool, but it can come quite in handy.

 Echo Dot (3rd Gen) – Smart speaker with Alexa – Charcoal

This is a cheaper option, you can still get Alexa features on a smaller scale. 

Echo Dot (3rd Gen) – Charcoal with Tile Pro 2 pack 

Another echo dot option with the tile. Never lose your keys or phone again!!

Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) Wireless Headphones, Noise Cancelling, with Alexa voice control

My son has actually had these for years, they were his first big purchase of his own. They are so quiet and the sound quality is unbelievable.  I may have to get myself a pair for our Alaska trip.

Bluetooth Earbuds

My oldest son prefers earbuds, these are a great option. Wireless Headphones Headsets Earpieces Earphones With Noise Canceling Microphone, Mini Bluetooth Earphone/Stereo-Ear Earphones Noise Cancelling Charging Case iPhone 6/6


Lightning Cable, Loopilops [5-Pack]

We are always running out of charging cables! These durable braided cables last much longer. 2-3Ft, 2-6Ft,1-10Ft Nylon Braided Charging Cable Cord, USB Cable Charger Compatible with iPhone.


UGG Men’s Ascot Slipper

These slippers are so plush and soft. They are all my youngest asked for.


Philips Norelco Multi Groomer

Both of my “babies” have beards. I much prefer them to keep them groomed and clean. This is the groomer my son uses.

Keurig K250 Single Serve K-Cup Pod Coffee Maker with Strength Control, Imperial Red

YETI Tumbler Rambler 20Oz Olive Green w Lid

For the new coffee drinker, this cup keeps coffee hot for several hours!


CamelBak Eddy Water Bottle, 25oz

This is to remind them to drink their water!! It’s my favorite water bottle.

And if you don’t think any of these would work, you can never go wrong with a gift card!!

  • Great list! I would never think of all the techy things since I am not tech savvy! But I’m sure these are all things college kids would like! Thanks for sharing!

  • Mendy, are u sponsored by any of these manufacturers? Essentially you’re giving them free ads, they should be giving you a lil something for the effort.
