This past weekend my (much younger) little sister graduated from high school! I’m so excited for her to begin her new life chapter at Northwestern University and wanted to get her a fun graduation gift to celebrate. I didn’t just want to give her cash nor anything too decor-specific as I’m sure she wants to pick out her own bedding and such for her dorm room. Finally I decided on rounding up a bunch of often forgotten college essentials.
Mini Office Supply Kit (a backpack handy stapler is key!) | Cute highlighters and gel pens – studying is more fun with multi-colored tools! | Lint roller | Method concentrated laundry detergent – conveniently small size but will last for lots of loads! | Scent Plug-In (because no candles allowed in dorm rooms) | First Aid Kit | Mini umbrella – I can’t tell you how many times I trudged through the rain before I finally got myself an umbrella in undergrad | Washi tape – for a cute way to hang up photos in your dorm room | Easy Mac – for late night snacking when the cafeteria’s closed | Thumb drives – never hurts to have one of these to back up your super important papers | Portable hand sanitizer to try and ward off all of the sickies.
Did I forget anything? Was there something you wished you had during your college years?
