College Survival Kit

Can you believe that August is already here? The months of June and July have flown by! This month, many new high school grads will be heading to college for the first time. If you want to send a new college student off to school with a gift that is useful, make them a gift basket.

Gift baskets are my favorite gift to give. I love them because they can be personalized and share a common theme. They are fun to make and it is very easy to add your own personal touch to a gift basket.

For a college student gift basket, I would start with a laundry basket. It is used to hold the rest of the gifts together and they can use the laundry basket for their dirty clothes. You can line the bottom with bath towels and add anything that you think a college student would use: quarters for the coin-laundry machines, a few easy-to make foods (Ramen Noodles, Spaghetti-O’s, cereal, etc), some school supplies (pens, erasers, paper clips, highlighters, etc), a shower caddy to keep the shower accessories organized, and whatever else you can think of!
