I want to get them each a going-away gift, like they did for me last year. I know I should have some amazing insight on the things college students need, since I went away myself last year, but I'm drawing a total blank. I don't want to get any of the essentials that they will have already bought on their own. If all else fails, I may just try to knit something nice and speedy up for each of them.
So, what are some ideas for nice gifts for college-bound girls? If it's something I can knit or make myself, that's a big bonus.
Also, most of the other attendees at the party will be girls who have also just graduated high school, some of whom I know fairly well, and some I barely know. There's at least one other girl there who I'd like to give something to, but who I most likely won't see again before she leaves for college. Is it rude to give gifts to only a few of the guests, or should I just give gifts to the girls hosting the party?
