The time has come when the kids (or young adults) are graduating from high school and preparing to start an entirely new adventure far away from home in college. While this experience is always exciting from the new graduate, it can be a little intimidating if preparations haven’t been made in advance.
The college dorm room can be pretty scarce upon arrival and will definitely need a little tender love and care. The best gifts to give a new graduate are the gifts that are going to be practical in their day to day college life and remind them of the comforts of home.
• Several sets of towels are always useful for the college bound student. Try to pick out a fun and unique color, so they are not easily misplaced around the dorm room. Complete the gift by adding a personalized monogram, such as the student’s initials or dorm room number.
• One of the best presents to give is the gift of a good night’s sleep. The college dorm room bed isn’t the most luxurious, so it’s always a nice idea to dress the bed in the essentials for comfort. A plush comforter and a couple down pillows paired with a featherbed and mattress pad will allow the student to be well rested for a full day of classes!
• There are quite a few dorm room essentials that are easily overlooked when the student is packing for college. Create a care basket with small, but important dorm room essentials, such as drawer liners and sachets, hangers, laundry bags and fragrant soaps.
• When selecting a gift for a college bound student, keep in mind the location of the college. If they are going to a warmer, more tropical place, beach blankets and bags are fun! However, if they are going to a cooler place, consider giving a warm, plush blanket they can cuddle up in when studying.
