Let’s talk gifts for college students!
My oldest daughter, Melanie and I did a Facebook live the other day showing off our state signs that make a great gift for college kids! (Y’all, she has a big personality, so be warned! Haha!)
They also make great gifts for neighbors, friends or family members that are moving, etc- but we hear SO often that people are purchasing them for their kids who have moved away (or are about to!) for school to give them a reminder of home!
Unlike most of our items these can be personalized with hearts over cities and city names or the word “home.
But let’s talk about what college students all really want, right?!
“Here’s a card with some $$!” just seems so impersonal though, so just like with teacher gifts, we suggest $ AND something else!
Now I’ll admit, for our nephews who are in college, it usually is just “Hey, here’s some cash!” because before I can get to it, their uncle (my hubs!) will just toss it at them! (Yes, picture me smacking my head!)
But if you are are like me, and would rather make it a bit of a thoughtful gift of $$ “and” here’s some ideas!
Phone Chargers- they get lost, left at friends houses, or frayed- so not having to spend $ on replacements will be appreciated!
Headphones- same as the above! Who doesn’t lose their headphones all the time?! Spring for the good ones (apple ones for iphones etc!), especially if this is the only gift you are giving. The cheaper ones just don't last!
Travel coffee mug- gotta have coffee to stay awake in class (Love my contigo mug!)
Laundry quarters- break a bit of the $ you are giving up into quarters!
This breakfast center from Amazon (heck I want it!!!)
State sign to remind them of home.
Hope these ideas are helping you guys think of new ideas for gift giving for the college students in your life or anyone else!
