    Gift for a girl living in  dorm

    I want to gift something to my neighbor's 19 yr old daughter who lives in dorm. She doesn't do makeup so cosmetics are out of question.  Help please!

    I don't know her, but I always enjoyed receiving gift baskets full of my favorite candy and cookies. The school I attended always sent the parents an order form before final's week and I always got a big basket at the beginning of that week. It was great to have snacks to munch on while studying without having to take the time to go get it.

    There are lots of dorm essentials but those are tricky because you never know what they already have.

    Consumables, however, are almost always going to be useful. On campus they aren't always easy to get, and if they are, they are usually expensive. Snacks and food are good ideas, as sheilamyers suggested, but you could also do things like soap, toothpaste, laundry detergent, roll of quarters, pencils, batteries, cleaning supplies, aspirin (or similar), bandaids, etc.

    That maybe isn't the funnest gift, but I know when I was in college, those sorts of gifts were always highly appreciated. A gift card from their bookstore is usually a pretty safe bet as well.

    They have some really cool wall decals that don't damage walls that is a really cool gift, or you could give her one of those pillows that is like the top of a chair, or you could just send her a care package with some good food treats in it.  I think she would appreciate all those things!

    Find what is local and get her cards to coffee shops, places to eat, as they like to go out and eat on the weekends, .
