Are you preparing to send your kiddo off to college?

Or maybe you’ve finally gotten over the fact that you have a child in college. Well, actually, you probably won’t “get over it” till all the bills are paid, but that’s another story 😉

Anyway, in the meantime, that college student of yours is getting started on life-away-from-home. And when gift-giving opportunities come around, they’ll appreciate a well-chosen gift from you. Note from experience: try to balance between fun and practical.  They still appreciate being treated like your “kid” at birthdays and holidays, but of course, there’s that pesky real world/adult life that they’re building, too.

So whether your college-aged kiddo is away from home or experiencing a gap year, some of these items might fit the bill around the holidays or anytime you’re shopping for something thoughtful.

 Nostalgia is “in” and your teen will be the hit of the dorm with this awesome popcorn kit! Igloo FR326M-D-BLACK Erase Board Refrigerator with Neon Markers KeepCup Brew Glass Reusable Coffee Cup, 12 oz/Medium, Filter Hinterland Trading Small Ceramic Vase Set with Air Plants iscream Yummy Treats Scented Microbead Pillow Twone White Cloud Magnetic Wall Key Holder Super Stacked Desk Set LINENSPA Shredded Foam Reading Pillow Attmu Mesh Shower Caddy (contents not included) – if your student doesn’t have one…she’ll definitely need one! Amazon Allowance – the Gift Card that keeps on giving! This bedside organizer is great when they’re on the top bunk 😉

Dontcha just love the fridge? That’s something that will get lots of use for years to come, even after they get their sheepskin…

Well, that may not be an exhaustive list, but it should be enough to get you started! Happy hunting…and happy gift-giving!
