Longchamp tote bags are popular among high school and college-aged girls because they are durable and come in many colors. They’re the perfect go-to bag, and range from $120-$150 and can be purchased at Nordstom in the Towson Town Center.
iPhones, iPads and iBooks…Everyone’s got them, but not everybody has a Marc Jacobs or Tory Burch case for his or her device. This is a really fun gift that most soon-to-be college freshman wouldn’t be willing to spend money on, but will absolutely appreciate. These items can be found in the accessories department at Nordstrom. The phone cases run between $25 and $50, the Marc Jacobs iPad case is $58 and the Marc Jacobs lap top case is priced at $68.
No one should go to college without Ray Bans! The Sunglass Hut at the Towson Town Center has a good selection of Ray Ban Wayfarers and Aviators. Most are priced between $150 and $200. You can probably get some reasonably priced knock-offs, too.
There’s no shame in writing a check and, of course, cash is king!
