Great Gift Ideas for College-Bound Students

Need a few last minute gifts for your older teen? Consider some of these ideas:
  • Board Games- Party games are great for college students to have on-hand for quick dorm room fun.
  • Dorm Room Essentials- a laundry bag, extra-long twin sheets, fuzzy rugs, throw pillows and posters or pictures help make a room feel cozy.
  • Subscription to Amazon Student or Netflix.
  • Portable Charger- to keep phones, tablets, laptops going even when there's no power source.
  • Collegiate SWAG-  anything from mugs to sweatshirts to slippers in their favorite college color or logo makes a great gift.
  • Run-Away Alarm Clock- a cure for those who can't get out of bed.
  • Basic Tool Kit- for the small repairs.
  • Roku or Chromecast streaming for any time on any device.
  • Bluetooth speakers- to share and enjoy music anywhere.
  • Headphones- to enjoy audio without disturbing anyone else.
  • AAA (American Automobile Association) Membership- if you've got a student driving back and forth to college, a AAA membership can come in handy for those times when "E" really means empty.
  • Books- Harlen Cohen's The Naked Roommate, Priya
    Krishna's Ultimate Dining Hall Hacks, and The Everything College Survival Book, all make great reading for the transition to college.
Happy Holidays!
