It is the end of an era. We are still moters, but never in quite the same way as when our children are living under our roofs. I want to do something special for my little sweetie who is not so little anymore. Here are some ideas for the right gift
1. Dorm chair
Make your college student’s favorite cookies, bars or one of our family’s favorite, Chex Mix
Most college dorm beds are larger than a regular twin bed. Check the size of the bed before your order sheets.
4. Laundry basket/hamper
this depends on your child’s major, so find out the requirents are depending on what types of programs your child will need to be running. Here is a laptop guide to help you out.
6. Amazon Prime for Students
It’s 1/2 the price of regular Amazon Prime and has many benefits. Your student can stream all kinds of music, get books shipped for free in 2 days and listen to a couple of free audio books (something fun for that drive home to visit you).

These are the perfect gift to buy books, household supplies or even groceries. If your child’s college is in a city, groceries can be delivered the same day. Many colleges do discourage cars the first year or two, so having a few groceries delievered can be very helpful for snacks or to supplement the food plan on campus.
8. A tool box
When your college student moves into their first house or apartment a tool box will come in handy.
9. Care package
A care package is perfect for a few weeks into the semester and again during finals week.
10. Electronics Organizer Bag
11. Family Favorites Recipe Box
Put together a book or recipe box with some of your student’s favorite foods. I didn’t need a recipe for tator tot hotdish. One of my son’s favorite meals, but he did. Send it with the ingredients for one of his favorite meals when he moves into his first place where he has a kitchen.
