When you’re a teenager, dating seems to be the biggest achievement in the world. To be going out with someone means you’ve entered a mature stage in life.
But dating, whether it’s the first time or not, can be incredibly nerve-wracking. Entering a relationship can be incredibly intimidating. And maintaining one takes work.
First dates can set the tone for the foundation of your relationship. The entire point of a first date is to get to know your significant other.
Whether they’re someone you know from school, someone you’ve known since you were a kid, or someone that you’ve just come to meet, first dates help you see them in a romantic light.
For teenagers, the best dates are simple ones that you can make your own.
Playing the question game, going for long walks, and watching the sunset together are simple moments that really let you focus on each other.
Dates like mini-golf, painting, and escape rooms bring so much fun. Planning dates comes naturally to some and not so much to others.
We’ve put together a comprehensive list of the best date ideas for teenagers.

First Date Ideas
Take Your Dog(s) for a Walk
A nice way to help break the ice on your first date is to have something to talk about. Bring your dogs along for a nice walk to facilitate fun conversation.
You can play fetch with the pups and watch how well they get along. This also gives you the chance to learn more about your date’s hobbies.
Go For Ice Cream
This is a classic first date for teenagers. And it’s classic for a reason! Going for ice cream is bound to put a smile on anyone’s face.
Keeping the first date casual is always the best move because it alleviates pressure.
Another classic date idea is to go for coffee. This kind of date is great for conversation and also gives you the chance to get to know each other better.
As a lover of coffee myself, this is a date idea that I always rely on. Try to avoid going to chain coffee houses. Going to the smaller, local cafés is much more romantic.
Need to get a few textbook readings out of the way but also want to make the most of your time? Invite your date out to study.
This is the perfect date for teenagers preparing for midterms or finals. That way you get to finish some homework while also having an enjoyable time with someone special.
Go on a Double Date
There’s no sugar coating it: first dates can be awkward. To help ease nerves and lighten the tension, invite another couple along for your night!
This is best when the other couple has been together for a while, so you don’t have to worry about any awkwardness on their end.
Having a friend to help ease your worries throughout the date is always a plus!
Randonauting is an activity where the app, Randonautica, sends you a random coordinate location in your area, and you travel to it hoping to find something fun.
Another way to have the same kind of adventure is to make random lefts and rights while walking or driving to hopefully land somewhere cool.
Play the Question Game
First dates are all about getting to know each other. A fun activity date for teenagers is to play the question game.
You and your date go back and forth asking each other random questions. This game allows you to move past basic questions like favorite color or food.
Instead, ask your date, “if you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?” My favorite ice breaker question is, “if you could travel to any place in time, where and when would you go to?”
Watch the Sunset or Sunrise Together
This date for teenagers is a very romantic one. While watching the sunset or sunrise, I always find these hours very contemplative.
Looking at the stunning views makes you think and reflect. Sharing this special moment with your date will bring you closer together.
Have a Game Night
One of my favorite dates is to host a game night. Whether it’s playing Twister, Monopoly, or cards, a game night is a perfect way to bring a little fun to a date.
Especially if you’re on the more competitive side, facilitating a healthy game of winners and losers is entertaining. My favorite game at game night is Clue.
Go to a Movie Theater
Every teen movie will showcase a movie theater date. Popcorn, candy, and waiting for your date to throw their arm over your shoulder?
Nothing is more exciting than going on a date to a movie. The best movie to watch on a date would be a scary or action movie.
Something that will hold your attention but not serious enough to distract you from your date.
Go to a Park
Whether your local park has swing sets and a jungle gym or is just an open field to walk around in, it’s great to spend time outside.
A date outside is casual and low-pressure. You can even bring a few field games to play, like Kan Jam or ring toss. Even bringing a soccer ball will allow for a fun time.
Play a Sport
Challenge yourself and your date to a game of basketball. Host a batting practice. See who can punt a soccer ball the farthest.
An active date for teenagers is to play a sport with your date. It’s not about actually doing well; it’s about spending time together and laughing.
Go out for Dinner
Going out to dinner will always be a reliable date for teenagers. Pick a restaurant that you wouldn’t normally go to from one of your favorite cuisines.
Personally, I hate eating with my hands on a date. I feel much more comfortable ordering something bite-sized so I don’t have to overthink during the date.
Have a Trivia Night
Whether you find trivia through an app on your phone or go out to a restaurant that’s hosting a trivia night, it is always fun to do an activity together on the first date.
That way, you and your date have something to bond over. It’s crazy how much random knowledge you actually know.
Is Pluto a planet? No. When was Taylor Swift born? 1989. Easy!
Draw Caricatures of Each Other
Caricatures are the cartoon drawings you would get on vacation that exaggerated certain features and placed you in random scenes.
It would be fun to have a first date where you try to draw a caricature of each other. You can emphasize specific aspects about your date that drew you to them in the first place.
Walk Around the Mall
One of the things I do a lot as a teenager is go to the mall. I can spend hours walking through stores whether I’m shopping or not. Bring your date to the mall and you won’t run out of activities to do. Try on ridiculous outfits and eat salty pretzels for the full mall experience.
To go stargazing, all you have to do is wait for the sun to go down and find an open field! You can most likely make your way to your school field with a blanket for this date.
Try to find constellations in the sky and see how many you can name! It is an adventurous and conversational date.
This is the perfect date for the summer. So many carnivals are traveling through towns for long weekends.
You can on the Ferris Wheel or win each other stuffed animals. A carnival is a perfect date for teenagers.
Try Each Other’s Hobbies
Let’s say one of you can play the guitar and the other likes to juggle. Take turns trying out each other’s hobbies!
No one has to be good at them, but it’s a great way to get to know each other and have a casual, fun time.
It’s always attractive when your date tries to teach you something and has an excuse to get close!
Have a Car Wash
This may seem like a random first date, but a car wash is the perfect mix of a fun activity. It’s something you and your date can accomplish together.
It’s also a great opportunity to start a water fight. Working on a project together is a great idea for a date.
Cute Date Ideas for teenagers
Picnic in the Park
Have a picnic at a park! This date is super easy to do yourself. Pack a small lunch with lots of snacks and a blanket and you’re set!
You can also spice up a picnic by bringing fun games, making your own lemonade, or using a picnic set that you can order from Amazon.
Go for a Fancy Dinner
While you may go out to eat often, you probably don’t go out for a fancy dinner too much. Every now and then it is a great date for teenagers to go to a nicer restaurant with their date.
Dressing up is half the fun and makes the date feel that much better. Whether the restaurant is local or far away, the act of going out together elevates the date entirely.
As classic as a movie date is, there’s nothing better than going to a drive-in movie. Bring a bunch of blankets and pillows to turn your seat into a huge couch.
You can also get candy and popcorn from the dollar store. If your drive-in theater is playing Grease, that is a must to spice up a date!
If you don’t like close to a major city that may have big museums, there are also local galleries to visit. Some galleries are open to the public on the weekends.
Big museums are also great to walk through because there is so much to talk about. It’s also an excuse to dress up nicer and have a sophisticated day.
Walk Through your Town
Take a step back and walk around your town. There are so many things to do in your town that you may not realize.
My small town has a lake, a park, a hiking trail and a string of locally-owned shops. Supporting local businesses and spending a casual day with your date always makes for a good time.
Put Together Flower Bouquets
Visit your local florist or flower nursery and select some flowers for an arrangement. You can make one big one together or two so you each have one.
See if you can remember each other’s favorite flowers and colors to make it a surprise! Flowers always brighten your day and make for an adorable date activity.
Read Books Together
One of my favorite date ideas is to read with your date. Go to your local bookstore, pick out books you think the other would enjoy and read together!
You can also pick your favorite book for the other to read.
I always annotate the books I read, and gifting an annotated book to your significant other is a touching and sweet way to show you care!
A cute and romantic date for teenagers is to go dancing. All you need is music and a speaker, and you can dance and hold each other tight.
Sometimes you don’t even need music to go dancing. Just start singing a catchy tune and dance your heart out!
Camp Out and Make S’mores
Set up a blanket and pillow fort in either of your backyards for the perfect camp out. Roast marshmallows over a fire and make some delicious s’mores.
As a veteran sleep-a-way camper, the best strategy for making s’mores is to twist and pull your stick with your marshmallow clamped between the graham crackers and chocolate.
If you don’t have a fire pit, you can roast marshmallows over your stove!
Make a Scrapbook of Your Favorite Memories
A sweet date for teenagers that have been dating for some time would be to put together a scrapbook of your favorite memories together.
You can print pictures of some of your favorite moments and make themes for each page.
If you spent a holiday together, went on a trip together, or did any of the dates recommended here, it’s great to hold a physical copy of those moments.
This is also a great date for an anniversary!
Fun Date Ideas For Teenagers
A super popular and spectacularly fun date for teenagers is mini-golf! It is a sweet and cheesy way to have a good time on a nice night.
And you’re assured to get close and cozy with your date. It’s a date night featured in romance movies for a reason!
Though bowling may seem like a big group activity, it can be really special to go on a fun and random date night.
Adding a bit of healthy competition to any relationship is a must. Bowling is a classic date for teenagers.
Whenever I go bowling it’s a gamble if I’m good or bad, but that’s the fun of the game!
You will never run out of things to do at an arcade! My personal favorite is Deal or No Deal and it always ends in a tense gamble.
Bring your date to the claw game and win each other a sweet keepsake. I’ve gotten most of my stuffed animal collection from nights spent at the arcade.
Even if the beach is a drive away, spending a full day with each other is the ultimate goal of any date.
The car ride there and back is a perfect opportunity to jam out to your favorite songs. On the beach, you can soak up the sun and have a sand castle-building competition!
It’s always fun to go shopping. But that doesn’t mean you have to just be looking for clothes or even buy anything.
Go to a car dealership and sit in all the fancy automobiles. Go to an outdoor furniture store and play on the children’s swing sets.
Talk in an accent to the attendants and pretend you’re from a different place!
Apple Picking/Pumpkin Picking
Every season has the perfect opportunity to go to a farm and pick some fresh fruit and vegetables.
Go pumpkin picking during the Halloween season or to a strawberry field in the spring. Walking through a field of apple trees makes for a romantic scene.
Attend a Sporting Event
Whether your go-to sport is basketball, football, baseball or soccer, there is bound to be a game in your area any time of year.
You can even attend each other’s sports game if either of you plays on a team. Cheering together or for one another is a fun way to bond.
Be sure to get a pretzel and soda for the full sporting event experience!
Any activity you do together on a date will make the date fun. Fishing is a unique way to do something special on a date.
It is a totally uncommon date idea for those who love the outdoors. And for those that are just getting used to the outdoors, at least you’re with your date!
Another outdoor activity is to go hiking! It doesn’t have to be an intense workout.
When I’ve gone on hikes, the view from the top of the mountain has always been my motivation. It’s even an opportunity to bring along a little picnic!
Buy an outfit for each other
Do you and your date have completely different styles? It would be so fun to go out together and pick an entirely new outfit for them.
Dress up your casual date in the fanciest clothes you can find. And dress down your date who is always dressed to impress.
The zoo is an adorable and super fun date for teenagers. Where else can you see lions and monkeys and seals in the same place?
So many zoos have animals you may never have encountered before! It is also an educational place to learn about endangered species and how you can help.
This date involves a bit more planning than others. But going on a secret scavenger hunt for a date would be so cool and fun!
A scavenger hunt is like a treasure hunt where you follow clues that lead you to the treasure you’re trying to find.
It could be a secret location for a nice dinner or a gift from you to your date.
Setting up a scavenger hunt is simple: all you have to do is write a few clues and put them in place.
An escape room has all the fun of a scavenger hunt, but you don’t necessarily need to be the one planning out the course.
You can go to an escape room and work as a team with your date to escape! Or, there are escape room kits that you can order online.
Think like a detective and solve the mystery with your date!
Make Balloon Animals
A unique way to get creative on your date is to make balloon animals! It has always looked so complicated to try and make a dog balloon animal.
But when I did this with friends, it was actually pretty simple. You and your date can make each other one.
A classic date night idea comes directly from my favorite movie growing up. The ‘karaoke date’ between Troy and Gabriella from High School Musical has been one of my favorites.
Whether you and your date sing a duet or serenade each other, this date is sure to be a good time. No worries if you sound like a hyena when you sing.
You and your date will be having too much fun to stop and think.
I’m still waiting for the day I get to take my date to a Harry Styles concert. Concerts are a perfect date idea because music always brings people together.
Even if you and your date share a different music taste, it would be so fun to bring each other along to hear your favorite bands play.
There’s no better feeling than finally listening to your favorite song live with your favorite person next to you.
It’s become a big trend to go shopping at thrift stores. There are always so many hidden gems in thrift stores.
Whether you find a big t-shirt or funky sunglasses, thrift stores hold so many adventures.
Taking a piece of them with you and creating memories with your date is the perfect date for teenagers.
Laughs are guaranteed when you take your date to a comedy show. It’s a nice way to lay back and have a relaxed evening.
Comedy shows are great because you and your date will have so much to talk about after. Did you like that one joke?
Did you not understand another? You never really know what you’re going to get from a comedy show, which adds to the pull.
Get creative and make your own candles! It’s surprisingly easy to make. All you need is wax, colored dye, and essential oils.
I made candles with my sister over the holidays and it was a super fun and unique activity. It would be so cute for you and your date to make candles for each other.
Use scents and colors that remind you of each other and name them for one another!
Make a Charcuterie Board
Half the fun of making a charcuterie board is planning what to put on it. Sure, you can go classic and make a cheese and meat board.
Or you can go off the walls and make a candy-themed board with Twizzlers and chocolate. Either way, making the board and eating it together is an adorable date for teenagers.
Stay At Home Date Ideas
One of my favorite hobbies is painting or drawing. As fun as it is to do this by yourself, it’s even better when you can share the peaceful nature with a date.
You can attempt to paint each other, paint a landscape scene, or just paint whatever comes to mind. It’s a fun and easy activity to do at home.
Test your kitchen skills and challenge yourselves to cooking dinner. It can be a simple recipe like spaghetti and meatballs or a more complicated dish.
I’ve succeeded at making a paella but also failed at clam chowder. It’s always nice to have a backup plan in case things go awry.
Or someone gets creative and starts an impromptu food fight.
Finish a Puzzle
Puzzle’s are a fun way to spend time with your date at home. You can easily get a puzzle from your local craft store.
Or, you can order a personalized puzzle of a picture of you and your date! The possibilities are endless.
Whether it’s a puzzle that takes 1 hour or 5, it is sure to keep you and your date entertained.
There is nothing better than spending a lazy day watching your favorite movies. The one thing that matches that energy is spending it with your date.
Sharing my favorite movie series with a date is a big testament to our relationship.
I am a die-hard Marvel fan and watch those movies when I’m happy, sad, bored and everywhere in between.
My date better be able to keep up with all my theories and fun facts about each film.
Doing crafts together is a wonderful date for teenagers. My favorite craft is making string bracelets.
Any craft store will also have crafts that you can paint—like you’re own pottery set, wooden picture frames, or birdhouses.
Crafting with your date is a cute way to have an at-home date.
Make Playlists for Each Other
Sharing your music taste with your date is an important aspect of your relationship.
Make your date a playlist of your favorite songs and music you think they would enjoy, and have them do the same.
You can spend time listening to each person’s selection and learn the words to new songs. Maybe you will have the same taste and be able to bond over the same bands.
If not, exposing yourself to music you wouldn’t have known otherwise is a plus.
Build a Fort
Embrace your inner child and build a pillow fort together. You can take the cushions out of your couch and set it up like a big cave.
Use blankets to make an extra comfortable floor to your fort. You can go the extra mile and set up lights in your fort for an elevated experience.
Make some popcorn and get a movie playing inside your fort!
Play Video Games
A date for teenagers does not need to be anything extravagant.
Some of the best dates you spend with your significant other are going to be when you’re just spending quality time together.
The time you get to kick back and share the little moments, like playing your favorite video games.
My favorite video game happens to be Just Dance, but the sentiment remains.
Tie-Dye Matching Shirts
A cute afternoon date for teenagers would be to tie-dye shirts together. Tie-dye is such a fun and classic activity.
Create cool designs by scrunching your shirts in different directions. Use your favorite colors to make a pattern.
After the stains set, you’ll have a cute new shirt! And one to match with your date.
Put on a Show
It can be easy to get bored at home. But one thing that’s never boring is putting on your own show.
Whether you put on a fashion show or a comedy show, the possibilities are endless. This is an easy and fun date for teenagers.
Build a House of Cards
All you need for this date is a deck of cards, and I’m sure many of us have some laying around our house.
I’ve never tried to build a specific structure with my house of cards. The easiest way to start your house of cards is the lean two cards into each other and slowly expand this out.
To make levels, lay cards on top of the maze. Then start building on top and you’ll create a house of cards!
Binge a New Show
Another cute date at home is to binge-watch a new show with your date! It’s fun to get invested in a series with someone.
You can watch each episode together and be able to discuss what you think may happen next.
This can either be a long-lasting activity or you can finish a season in a day, since so many limited series are only 6-8 episodes.
Have a Spa Day
Another fun at-home activity is to have a spa day! You can get creative by making your own face masks or buy some sheet masks from the store.
You and your date can take turns giving each other a back massage. Cut up some slices of cucumber to get the real spa feeling.
Bake a Dessert
Cookies, cakes, brownies, pies, and more. There are so many delicious desserts you and your date can bake together!
Whether making something from scratch or using a box, you and your date will love the final product.
It’s even fun when you decorate the final product together. I always loved icing cupcakes with different designs and patterns. Smashing a few in each others’ faces is also pretty adorable.
Create a Unique Handshake
While at home, a super cute date is to plan an intricate handshake! Inspired by the handshake from the Parent Trap movie, I’ve come up with so many handshakes.
Handshakes act as special greetings between you and your date.
Whether you make the handshake include something outrageous or just a simple action, the action itself is what’s special.
Final Thoughts on Dates for Teenagers
I cherish every moment spent in a relationship. As teenagers, you have to romanticize your life. Turn the small moments into meaningful ones.
Live in the moment. Just because you don’t call a specific day when you’re hanging out, a ‘date’ doesn’t mean you can’t make the day special.
When you do set aside the time for a real date, this comprehensive list is your go-to guide.

Best Overall College Backpacks for Men
What I love about this backpack is it is super affordable.
It runs for around $30 and comes in a variety of colors depending on your own personal style.
It has a lot of different compartments and pockets, so it makes a great backpack for those students on the go.
My personal favorite feature is a dedicated sleeve for a laptop or tablet - those get me every time!
Everyone’s definition of stylish is different, but if there is one kind of backpack I have seen on campus, it’s this one.
It has a super sleek design and is offered in different colors, which is definitely a bonus! Not only is it stylish, it’s also reasonably spacious for a nice and sleek looking backpack!
Now, this is the ultimate backpack for people with a busy schedule and a lot to carry.
I carried around 7 books my freshmen year because I had no breaks and English courses back to back.
This Speedo backpack comes in a bunch of different colors, but most of all it is perfect for carrying around everything you may need.
While it’s mostly made for swimmers to cater to their lifestyle, I think that this one truly works for every student.
Affordable Backpacks for College Men
Honestly, JanSport backpacks are like the holy grail of backpacks for students. I’ve carried a JanSport for years, so I can vouch that they are durable.
The City View backpack is great because not only is it affordable, it’s also made from recycled materials!
What’s better than padded shoulder straps, a laptop sleeve AND an environmentally conscious design? For a great price? Can’t beat it.
This is actually the backpack that I’ve been carrying since my freshman year, and I’m graduating in December! It has a fully padded back panel which is great for busy students who have to carry their backpacks from one building to another.
My favorite thing about this backpack is the little front utility pocket it has. It’s the best for carrying things that you need to grab in a jif, like keys or a wallet. Definitely recommend this backpack!
One of my favorite things about backpacks is not only when they’re super affordable, but also when they have awesome features that make the person carrying the backpack more comfortable.
Obviously, a spacious backpack is great… but, this one has shoulder straps with padded air mesh which helps keep away the sweat and make carrying a backpack a little less annoying.
For a Nike backpack, this one is super affordable and has tons of space. Two bigger compartments, two smaller pockets, two small zipper pockets, and side pockets!
My favorite feature from this backpack, though, is that it’s super easy to spot clean if it gets dirty. I guarantee that there will come a day when you need to get something off your backpack, and I bet that having this backpack will make that a little easier.
One of my very favorite things that a backpack can have is a laptop sleeve, and this one has just that! This backpack has a super simple and sleek design but also space for a laptop and tablet!
The National Backpack Originals also has a padded bottom to help make sure that if the bottom of your backpack gets wet, your stuff is far less likely to have water damage!
Another option that I absolutely recommend from Adidas because it’s also made from recycled materials.
A downside to this one is that it comes in limited colors, so if you aren’t a fan of the ones, they offer then you might want to look at another one.
But a big plus that I find with this one is that not only does it have a laptop sleeve, but it also has a pocket just for earbuds.
If you’re like me and tend to just throw your earbuds anywhere, having an earbud pocket would definitely come in handy to make sure that you aren’t always digging through your bag.
The essentials backpack comes in a different variety of colors which I think is awesome for expressing your own style.
It’s super easy to spot clean because of the material, and even though it’s on the more affordable side, it is decently sized to be able to fit whatever you need.
My favorite features? Double pockets for water bottles and a little ring on the front to fit keys!
This Puma backpack is a great one for its price because it’s all about comfort — it includes padded straps and a padded back to prevent back pain.
A fun bonus to this one is it has two slip-in pockets on the inside of the backpack instead of the outside! Great for keeping little things you need to carry organized.
While this backpack has similar features to the Buzz backpack, what I think stands out for this one is the design.
It looks more sophisticated and just a bit “cooler” than some of the other backpacks that lean on the affordable side. You’ll still get great comfort, space, and price, but it also might just look better carrying around!
Another awesome and affordable backpack option from Puma that has similar features but comes in more colors.
What’s great from reading the reviews is that even though the prices are more affordable, the backpacks are still able to last.
The only downside to this one is that because of the material, it might be slightly more difficult to spot clean if it gets a bit dirty.
Now this one has to be my favorite in this category because it’s all the things you want in a great backpack for a great price.
Just to list some of my favorite features: laptop sleeve, highly water-resistant, a nice buckle on the front pocket that makes the backpack a bit more fashionable, and 2 side water bottle pockets. Does it get better than that?
This backpack stood out to me because it has a very different design than a lot of the other ones on this list. It’s more of an oval shape rather than just the standard backpack, which I think gives this one a leg up.
It comes in different color combinations, so you have some variety to choose from! A great feature on this one is water-repellent front pockets to keep valuable stuff from getting ruined!
But my favorite feature? It has an abrasion-resistant bottom to keep it from ripping or breaking.
Vans backpacks were always what I thought of as being the cool kid backpack. The designs are super cool for a good price and good quality.
This one was a personal favorite because of its laptop sleeve (duh), tablet pocket, and organizer for pens and such.
Also fun fact, this one has an odor control treatment that helps keep you from smelling bad – especially if you’re super active.
Another great option from Vans. It has a lot of similar qualities, minus the odor treatment and tablet pocket.
I would definitely say this backpack is meant for someone with a less heavy schedule.
It’s a bit smaller than some of the others in the affordable section, but still, a great option if you just need to carry your laptop and a notebook or two
Stylish Backpacks for College Men
Now this one is like the ultimate backpack that also doesn’t look too shabby!
Let me just rattle off everything I love about this one, other than how it looks: tons of storage, laptop pocket, tablet pocket, the bottom is water-resistant, it has trolley handles that you can use if that’s your vibe, a front zipper pocket that’s perfect for keys or smaller things, and it’s easy to spot clean.
When I said ultimate backpack, I meant it…
This backpack is super stylish and decently priced! It has an option for a luggage handle so it could be used as a roller if you needed it for trips.
It’s easy to clean, has a laptop and tablet pocket, and has a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty if something goes wrong!
I love this backpack because its design is stylish but also super functional. It’s original because it can fit a laptop with up to a 17”, which is a lot bigger than most others.
A super original feature is a pass-through USB cord that can let you charge anything you may need. Great features for a great look!
The Fjallraven is a really super backpack brand. They’re easy to get off of Amazon which makes shipping really easy.
These backpacks are both functional but even more than that they are a super original design. They come in a variety of colors, so the only problem you’ll have is deciding which one you like!
These also have good storage, but you may not be able to carry a bunch of textbooks, notebooks, and a laptop - so maybe not the best for people with a super busy schedule and a lot to carry.
23. Nike Hayward 2.0
Nike has a ton of stylish backpacks, but I loved this one because it isn’t tacky or too big. It’s super spacious and even has an adjustable bungee cord in the front for carrying shoes or extra clothes just in case!
The Nike Sportswear RPM is the perfect stylish backpack for students on the go - especially athletes.
It has a lot of different compartments to make sure that you can not only carry school supplies, but also clothes you might need to change into, snacks, or really anything you think you might need to go from one place to another!
I’m a huge fan of Adidas, especially their backpacks. I think the Prime backpack is stylish because it’s simple.
Not an overly complicated design and has simple color options.
And guess what’s back… recycled materials! Easy to spot clean, and a lifetime warranty… need I say more?
A super classic design with durable materials.
Honestly, this one has a lot of the same features as the one above, minus being easy to spot clean and an added earbud pocket.
Adidas backpacks are all pretty stylish, so it really just comes down to personal taste!
The Puma City backpack is probably one of my favorites on this entire list. Its look is super interesting as it’s more rectangular than a regular backpack.
A downside to this one is that it only comes in one color, which stinks if you don’t like the color but like the style.
Favorite feature: a zip pocket that is vertical along the front! I’m considering buying this one for myself.
This backpack from Under Armour has a subtle but stylish pattern that isn’t overwhelming but will make your backpack stand out. In my opinion, it’s also very professional looking!
Favorite features: water-resistant, lightweight fabric, and a large front sprocket for valuables!
The Vans Puffed Up backpack has similar features as the previous Vans backpacks… laptop sleeve, padded shoulder straps and a pocket designed to organize pens and cords.
What puts this one in the stylish category, though, is that the fabric is puffed, which makes this backpack super original.
The only downside is that it only comes in the color pomegranate, which is really just a deeper reddish/purple.
Similar to the Samsonite Modern Utility Double Shot Laptop Backpack, this is another ultimate backpack.
This L.L. Bean backpack is huge – perfect for carrying basically your entire life.
The bonus, though, is that it’s super stylish! It comes in 3 different colors, so some variety, and it’s professional looking without looking old.
This is the backpack that I imagine all the cool guys in Europe use - so if that is the aesthetic you’re going for, this is for you!
The design is made up of a front flap with a buckle, it’s rectangular, and has two side cargo pockets with buckles as well.
It’s waterproof, which is a big plus and will make you look like the cool guy on campus with the nice, smart, and professional backpack.
Customizable Backpacks for College Men
For this custom backpack, you can upload your own text, photo, or logo in order to make your backpack really your own.
Some super cool features, other than being custom, are that it has a laptop sleeve, an office organizer, and is pretty decently sized.
Check out this customized multifunction travel backpack with a USB charging headphone port!
Like the previous custom backpack, you’re able to upload your own images or text.
Bonus features: water-resistant, luggage strap, a separate laptop compartment, and a USB or headset port design that helps you charge your device whenever you need to on the go.
This backpack differs from the others because you can only add text, which is super helpful if you know you want your backpack to say your name or something specific, but you don’t want to worry about if there is a picture.
It doesn’t have a laptop sleeve, but it is slightly water-resistant and has adjustable padded straps with a sponge on the inside to help with a comfortable carry.
Timbuk2 backpacks are super great quality!
This backpack has rear access to a laptop, so that it doesn’t get jumbled with everything else you’re carrying, and an internal organizer for pens or miscellaneous things you need to carry!
What is great about this backpack is that it also can be customized to fit your style.
However, I don’t mean customized like names and pictures. You’re able to pick what color combinations you want to make sure that you’re carrying something that fits your personal style!
Now, Zazzle doesn’t necessarily have just one kind of backpack you can design. This website needed to go in this category because you can basically customize your backpack from start to finish.
They have different styles, colors, words, pictures… really whatever you want to make your backpack all your own!
37. Vans Customs
Like Zazzle, Vans has its own design space to make your backpack fit you.
They have four different styles of backpacks to choose from, and from there you can design it based on certain patterns they offer or even upload your own picture.
These backpacks are super great quality and the Vans design portal is super easy to navigate – they make the backpack creating process super fun!
Minimalistic Backpacks for College Men
And we’re back to another JanSport backpack! I actually had this exact same backpack for all my years of high school, so I can vouch that it’s great quality.
It’s super simple in its design while still being completely functional and sophisticated.
It doesn’t have a laptop sleeve, but I think I can look past that for this one because I know from experience that simple really is the best in this case.
This JanSport backpack not only has a sleek and simple design, but it’s also made from recycled materials! It doesn’t get any better than that if you ask me.
Again, it doesn’t have a laptop sleeve, but I think I can forgive that since it’s so environmentally friendly.
I absolutely love this Herschel backpack because sometimes I think the more pockets and zippers that a backpack has, the more crowded it looks.
This backpack has a single zipper in the front as its only real “design feature” which I think leaves it looking super clean and professional.
Bonus features: laptop sleeve, key clip, and waterproof zipper detail.
I love this backpack from Wexley because it reminds me of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Shell in the best way!
It’s really just the oval shape of the backpack, but I think that the simple design makes the shape really stand out when you’re wearing it.
I have a friend who has this backpack, and he raves about it – it’s super spacious and comfortable. His favorite thing? “It looks good with everything!”
Lululemon’s Everyday backpack comes in four different color patterns, all of which are super clean.
It is made with water-repellent fabric, has a padded pocket that fits up to a 16” laptop, an exterior pocket, and interior pockets to keep things from flying around!
I love this option because, in my opinion, this is probably one of the most versatile minimalist backpacks - you could take it on a trip, school, work, or the gym and it would fit every occasion.
This Solo Tote/Backpack is such a nice twist on just a regular ole backpack. The style is simple yet sophisticated.
It’s super stylish without being flashy or too big to carry around.
It doesn’t fit as much as a regular backpack does, so this is definitely more of an option for someone with a lighter load!
44. Wenger Foix 16”
I love this backpack because usually when people say, “minimalist backpack,” one would automatically think of a black backpack because of how sleek it is.
This Wenger backpack comes in a really nice olive color that I think captures the same sophistication and sleekness while also being a different color!
The Loudon backpack does an excellent job of combining simplicity and design - providing customers with patterned options for backpacks that aren’t too much.
This one comes in 4 different colors and has a lot of the same great features that Under Armour offers - water-repellent fabric, laptop sleeve, and comfortable straps!
Calvin Klein really knew what they were doing with this one… it’s like the ultimate stylish backpack for guys.
This backpack comes in black and has one main compartment, a front zipper, is fully lined and is faux leather.
It isn’t the biggest backpack, so this probably isn’t the best choice if you have a lot to carry, but you’ll definitely look cool!
If you can’t tell by now, Vans has some pretty great quality backpacks.
But I do think that some of their backpacks are pretty flashy. This Disorder Plus option is great because it has a laptop compartment, an internal organizer, a lined media pocket and mesh water bottle pockets.
More than all that, though, its super clean design will make it so you don’t walk around feeling like you have a flashy backpack you’re carrying all day.
Don’t like the last Vans minimalist men’s backpack option? Here’s another!
The Vans Long Haul is great because Vans changed up their design without overdoing it.
This backpack has the typical backpack shape, but with two small zipper pockets on the very front that will make your backpack easy to find if you lose track of it.
A creative and original design with all the great features Vans offers for its backpacks? Can’t beat it!
Okay, okay, okay! I know - you’re probably tired of Vans backpacks… but they’re great! I can’t help it.
This Transplant backpack has a slightly more oval shape than a normal backpack, but like the Long Haul, it has a zipper pocket in the front that makes this style more original.
It comes in the color indigo, which I think is a great solid color to carry around.
A super fun feature: a removable cross-body bag! Which I think is super cool and very in right now.
And here we have it, my very last recommendation for college men’s backpacks.
This one comes in a cool camo pattern which I think perfectly manages the super simplistic style.
The material is water-resistant, and the reviews are phenomenal. The only downside (in my opinion) is that there isn’t a laptop sleeve…. But I think I can let it slide for a 4.65/5-star review.
Bonus – Most Important Backpack Features
None of these backpacks the one? That’s totally fine – I understand!
When you’re going into a store to shop, though, here are a few of the features that I like to pay the most attention to making sure I have.
As someone who has had the same backpack for many years, these are the features that are going to help you get a backpack that will last for college and beyond.
- The most important feature on my list: a laptop sleeve! I love a laptop sleeve because I don’t have to worry about making sure I have a separate laptop case, and you always know that your laptop will be kept safe from everything else.
- Padded bottom. This helps with making sure that if something spills or you accidentally leave your backpack in a puddle that everything stays dry inside.
- Easy spot cleanable fabric. I promise you will get something on your backpack at some point. If it isn’t easy to spot clean, you’ll just be stuck with a stain.
- Pocket organizer. This isn’t something I have but I wish I did. Pockets specifically made for pens, and such would be so convenient.
- Mesh water bottle pockets. These are so much easier to fit a variety of different water bottle sizes in!
- Key clip. I also don’t have a key clip and I so wish I did so that I wasn’t constantly digging through my bag trying to find my keys when I needed them.
- Mesh pocket on the front. If you’re an athlete or an avid gym-goer, I would say that a mesh pocket where you can put shoes, or a change of clothes is a super helpful feature to have.
Final Thoughts on Backpacks for College Men
While these are just the things on my list, I would recommend making your own list of features that are important to you before shopping.
A backpack should be made to fit your lifestyle, not you trying to fit your life into a backpack – don’t forget that and just buy whatever backpack is in front of you that won’t even fit all your books.
Stay calm, look at the product details, and I promise you’ll be the guy with the coolest backpack at school.

60 Best Dorm Room Ideas for Girls – The Ultimate Guide
Are you moving into a new dorm room? Decorating your dorm room can make a huge difference to your college experience! Check out this ultimate guide with the best dorm room ideas for girls.
The start of the semester is coming up, and summer is coming to a bittersweet end. But something you can look forward to is decorating your college dorm room.
If you’re overwhelmed with moving into college, we’ve got you covered. Here are 60 great dorm room ideas for girls.
In this post:
- Beautiful Dorm Room Ideas for Girls
- Dorm Room Essentials for Girls
- Bonus Items Girls Can Add to Their Dorm Rooms
Beautiful Dorm Room Ideas for Girls
1. Boho Wall Art
Make your dorm room a little less drab by creating a wall collage. Use this image for inspiration if boho art is your thing. You can find a lot of prints to buy online, or make it a fun DIY project and paint some canvases. It could be a fun activity for you and your roommate!
2. Rainbow Throw Pillows
You may not have a couch in your dorm room like this picture shows, but a color gradient would make for a really cute look for your bed. Get a neutral colored comforter and sheets. Then, find pillows in an array of colors and arrange them accordingly! What’s really great about this idea is that there’s a lot of room to play around with a neutral bedspread. Chances are that you won’t get sick of it very quickly.
3. Matching Bedspreads with your Roomie
If you’ll be living in a double, why not coordinate with your roommate? If you guys can agree on a color scheme, it could be really cute to have matching beds. It could make the room feel a little less chaotic, so it’s a great dorm room idea for girls. Although, if you and your roomie have totally different vibes, that’s fine too.
4. Hanging Lights
This is a great dorm room idea for anyone. Order some plain lights or get some colorful ones for a nice pop. You can hang them over your bed for some nice reading lights. I wrapped mine around my bookcase. It makes for a cute accent.
5. Dried Flowers
I try to keep flowers everywhere in my apartment, but it can get expensive if you keep having to replace them with fresh ones. What I like to do is hang bouquets to dry, then place them in vases around my kitchen, living room, and so on. It’s such a cute dorm room idea for girls; they’re pretty and last a long time!
6. Stuffed Animals
Stuffed animals can make for cute bed decorations. It doesn’t have to be your favorite childhood toy either. Squishmallows are a big thing right now – why not get one? Throw it on your bed or chair.
7. Inspirational Quotes
You can keep inspirational quotes around your bed as a friendly reminder of your goals or values. They make for cute decorations. And, although simple, they can make you feel better when you’re feeling down. You can find some cute ones here on Amazon.
Maps can make for aesthetically pleasing decorations. Hang up a country or world map if traveling is something you’re passionate about or aspire to do. Or, a map of your home country or state could be a piece of comfort while you’re away at school.
9. Woven Tapestry
These tapestries are so cute, and if you don’t want to buy one, you can easily make it a DIY project. I made one for my dorm freshman year. Just make sure that it complies with fire safety regulations in your building.
10. Bold Color Pillows
Copy the look
I’ve always been a fan of adding a pop of color to a room. Some opt for the more monotone look, but I think that bright colors can make any room feel a bit happier. Grab some at your local department store or order some online. Any colors will go great with a neutral bedspread.
11. Wall Lashes
This look is a fun dorm room idea for girls. Add some accents to your wall to brighten them up a little. They should be easy to set up as well – you’ll just need a few command strips. Recreate this look with these items from Amazon.
12. Bulletin Board
13. Cactus Theme
My style is very eclectic, so everything in my apartment is sort of mismatched. But if you want a cohesive look for your dorm room, why not go with the popular cactus theme? It’s a popular dorm room idea for girls right now. The green colors are happy and serene, and it gives you an excuse to keep a lot of plants around the apartment.
14. Minimalist Look
Plants can be a huge mood booster. They’re nice to look at and fun to take care of. Although, you’ll probably be busy, so maybe go for some easy ones, like succulents or cacti. Keep little pots around your desk, your nightstand, your windowsill, etc.
16. Boho Bedding
The fun thing about a boho look is that it can match without matching. You can have a lot of different patterns, textures, and colors while still maintaining a cohesive look. Just buy the pieces you enjoy, throw them together, and see how it turns out.
17. Monochromatic Look
If you’re having trouble figuring out how to decorate your dorm room, going with a monochromatic look can make it easy. Just choose a color, like green, for instance, and find little green decorations to keep around your room. Posters, pillows, picture frames – they don’t have to be the same shade of green, either.
18. Small Rug
Dorm rooms don’t always have the most appealing carpet or hardwood floors. A cute little area rug can brighten things up a bit. My dorm room wasn’t big my freshman year, but I fit a short runner between my bed and my desk. It definitely made the room feel nicer.
You’ll definitely want shelving of some sort. Small bookshelves are nice if your room doesn’t come with any, and you don’t have to keep books in it, either. Keep snacks on it, little knick-knacks, school supplies, picture frames, etc.
If it’s your vibe, you should collect a few antique items to create your aesthetic. Stop by a reuse store, or get some items on Amazon. Mirrors, typewriters, cameras, and old bottles can all be cool additions to your room.
21. Storage Ottoman
Storage ottomans can be really useful for storing little items like playing cards. You can keep yours at the foot of your bed or in your living room if you have one. Find a small storage ottoman here on Amazon.
22. Butterfly/Saucer Chair
I got a saucer chair for my dorm freshman year. It was nice to have a place where my friends could sit when we hung out in my room. It also made for a great reading chair. Find some here online; they’re a great addition to any dorm room.
23. Bean Bag Chair
24. Neon Sign
Copy the look
A lot of my friends had neon signs in their dorms freshman year. They make for a nice pop of color. Just make sure you’re allowed to have one in your dorm room before you spend your money on one.
25. Lightbox Sign
Lightbox signs can make for cute little decorations and mood boosters. They’re just like letterboards, but they light up! You can find some here on Amazon. You’ll have fun deciding what yours should say.
26. Photo Strings
I like keeping photo strings up in my room. I usually hang my Polaroid pictures on twine with clothespins. They line the walls of my room. It’s a fun reminder of good memories.
Succulents are so cute and easy to take care of. Keeping plants in your room can liven your mood. Buy these little potted ones on Amazon. Keep them on your desk and in various places around your room.
28. Decorative Throw Pillows
Keep decorative throw pillows in different places around your dorm room, like on your bed, couch, chair, or bean bag. My roommates and I keep a pillow of RBG on our couch. Find some pillows here on Amazon.
A lot of people like to keep flags on the walls of their dorm rooms. Just make sure that your dorm approves the item for fire safety. If they do, a flag is a great way to show pride in your identity.
Again, you should double check that you can have a tapestry in your dorm for fire safety reasons. But if you can, tapestries are a great way to liven up a blank wall. Get one of a cool pattern or painting.
Streamers are a fun dorm room idea for girls. Have some streamers to hang on your wall for special occasions. Or, you could just keep them up year-round. These light streamers are great for keeping above your bed.
Dorm Room Essentials for Girls
32. Shoe Rack
A shoe rack is nice to have to keep things organized in your closet. Otherwise, your shoes will be thrown about everywhere and you might have trouble finding what you need. I got my shoe rack freshman year, and it still comes in handy as a senior.
33. Bedside Lamp
There’s no way you’ll get through the year without a bedside lamp. You’ll want it when you’re up late studying or reading. Plus, sometimes it’s nice to use instead of harsh overhead lights. You can find affordable ones here.
34. Coffee Maker
You can’t get away without a hamper in your room. Otherwise, your dirty clothes will be scattered everywhere, and you’ll have a hard time carrying everything to the laundry room. But just because a hamper holds your dirty clothes doesn’t mean it can’t be cute. Find some cute printed ones online here.
36. Command Strips/Hooks
Command strips are your best friend in college. You won’t be able to nail or even tape things to the walls, but most dorms usually allow command strips. If you plan on hanging literally anything on the walls, you’ll need Command Strips and Hooks. When I was moving in freshman year (when everyone else was), all the department stores in the area were out of Command Hooks because they were in such high demand. It may be best to order them online beforehand.
37. Small Printer
Chances are that your university will have printers on campus for you to use. But having a printer in your dorm room can be really useful. If you’re like me and you procrastinate, you’ll have to print things last minute. Find printers online here.
38. Mini Fridge
This is a must-have dorm room idea. You’re likely to get most of your meals at the dining hall and have access to a kitchen in your dorm, but it’s still nice to have a mini fridge in your room. Late at night when you’re studying, it’ll be nice to have some snacks right there for you.
Copy the look
Now, your dorm room may come with curtains. But if it doesn’t, they’re a must. Blinds aren’t always as effective as they should be. Plus, they’re another opportunity for cute decor. Get some that match your bedspread!
40. Wall Mirror
You’re definitely going to want a long mirror in your dorm room. It’ll come in handy every day. You can find a lot of affordable ones online, and you can stick them to your wall with Command Strips. I decorated mine with a few flowers around the border.
41. Alarm Clock
There’s no way you’ll be able to make it through the year without setting alarms for your early-morning classes. Phones obviously work great, but the old-fashioned alarm clocks are so cute! You can find some affordable ones on Amazon.
42. Throw Blanket
You’re definitely going to want an extra blanket for your dorm room. Even if you’re going to school in a warmer place, sometimes the AC can be a little too much. Plus, they can make for a cute pop of color to throw over your comforter or chair.
43. Playing Cards
You’ll want to keep mugs in your dorm room to have tea and coffee during late nights studying. Buy a couple to have just in case. You’ll want a bunch more if you’ll be living in an apartment.
Bonus Items Girls Can Add to Their Dorm Rooms
45. Hat Hanger
I personally don’t have enough hats to accomplish this, but the look is so cute. If you have a bunch of sun hats, rather than storing them in your closet, make them into a functional decoration! You can find a hanger here on Amazon. It would work great for baseball caps as well!
46. Tea tray
I had a little tray in my dorm room when I started college. It was really useful when I was up late studying, eating snacks, and drinking coffee or tea. It’s definitely not a necessity, but they can be so useful. You could also keep things like plants in the tray if you wanted.
47. Coffee Table
48. LED Marquee Letter
Hanging your first initial letter in lights is a fun dorm room idea for girls. You can find some here online. They’re such cute wall decorations. If you hang it over your bed, it can make for great reading light.
49. Fake Ivy
Fake ivy is definitely in right now. It adds a nice touch of green, and it’s a plant you won’t have to worry about watering. You can order some online here. Easily tape it to your wall when you move in!
50. Macrame Plant Hangers
Macrame plant hangers make for a cute boho look. Make them yourself with some yarn, or order some premade ones online. They’d go great with some air plants, which are super easy to take care of.
Copy the look
I always hang a calendar for the year on my wall. I tend to use my planner more often, but I find calendars aesthetically pleasing. Mine is decorated with cartoons from the New Yorker. You can find a bunch online with all sorts of themes and images.
52. Letter Board
53. Lava Lamp
Lava lamps are a fun way to brighten up your room. I keep mine on my nightstand. They’re inexpensive and can add some color. Find some online here. There are a lot of different styles to choose from.
I like to keep a lot of candles in my apartment. They’re nice to light when you’re studying, or when you just want your room to smell nice. Just make sure that you’re allowed to have them in your dorm room before you buy them.
55. Incense Diffuser
If you’re not allowed to have candles in your dorm, you should be allowed to have an incense diffuser. They can make your room smell nice and even relax you when you’re stressed. There are a lot of different scents to choose from.
56. Yoga Mat
57. White Board
White boards can be great for studying and for leaving reminders. My freshman year, I left a white board outside my door, so my friends could leave little messages for me.
59. Mini Gumball Machine
A mini gumball machine is a fun bonus dorm room idea for girls. You can find some cheap on Amazon. Even if you’re not a huge fan of gumballs, the look of gumball machines is really fun. You can fill it with other candy, too.
60. Piggy Bank
Stow away your loose change in a piggy bank. There’s no need to carry change around with you everywhere. This coffee jar is a cute place to keep your change. Save up for something fun!
And there you have it! I hope you were able to find some inspirational dorm room ideas for girls on our list.
There are a lot of great items you can buy to make your dorm room feel like home. Best of luck with your semester!
