Help ease the transition from home to college for your freshmen co-ed with a care package filled with stuff she’ll actually want. Of course, a few bags of microwave popcorn and some ramen would be a welcome addition to anything on this list.
1. A stylish tote bag
Gone are the days of carrying backpacks. Instead your co-ed is going to want something a bit more personal to carry their notes. This vintage camera tote bag is sure to click with them. (Society 6, $22)
2. A bluetooth speaker
3. Bright bean bag
4. Slim-fitting jeans
There’s a chance that the laundry room is still the one unexplored area of your child’s dorm. An extra pair of jeans will always come in handy, especially if they’re super comfy and stylish like the Levi’s 513 Slim Straight Jeans. While you’re at it, add in a bottle of fabric freshener as well. (Kohl’s, $64–$68)
5. The coolest memo board
6. Insulated water bottle
It’s almost a rule that everyone has to carry a water bottle on campus at all times. This one is insulated, meaning it won’t drip all over your kid’s notes or the cute girl sitting next to him. (REI, $20)
7. Roommate-friendly door hook
8. A bright shower caddy
9. A hard-to-forget key ring
10. Smartphone charging case
We’re going to bet that your student is always on his smartphone, which means he probably needs to charge it frequently. You’ll sleep better knowing that he is less likely to be in a situation without his phone with this simple charging case. (Back Country, $100)
