Gifts From Home That Any College Student Would Love

What parent doesn’t want to ensure that their child who is away at college isn’t happy? Gifts from home are always welcome, so make sure you send one that is well appreciated by our future scholar. I remember when I went to school in California – I would get little packages that had things I couldn’t find ~ one thing was this powder mix called Ice Teasers. Not sure they make it any more.

Gift Cards

Most college students are on a tight budget, so they have little money to spend on frivolities. These cards can be for something fun or useful. Grocery store gifts cards are always welcome, as well as those for pizza places close by. An office supply store card is always helpful to pay for those extra expenses like copying, printing or collating as well as computer supplies.

Care Packages

A care package can be as simple as a box filled with your student’s favorite non-perishable foods and sweets. For special occasions like birthdays, it is always nice to let an expert like BisketBaskets.com deliver a specially crafted gift basket full of tasty treats.

Gas Cards and Bus Passes

If your student has a car, a gas card will be helpful to finance regular shopping trips or even better, a trip home on holidays. A student without a car will need a bus pass to move around town if their college doesn’t provide one, so these can ensure your student makes it back and forth to where he needs to be on time.

Especially during their first year away from home, your college student needs to feel your love. Gifts from home that are useful and sometimes frivolous will help make the transition easier.

  1. I think care packages are always important, plus it makes the kids feel good knowing that folks back home are concerned about their needs.
