Comfortable Sheets and Bedding for Dorm Life
Bring the comforts of home to college with these comfy flannel sheets.
College life typically means some late study nights. Make sure your student is comfortable, even if they didn’t bring every pillow from home, with this backrest pillow!
Amazon Music Unlimited Membership
Most teens LOVE listening to music. With a Amazon Music Unlimited membership, students can relax or study to ALL their favorite tunes! College students qualify for a Amazon Prime membership, but with Amazon Music Unlimited they can listen to a much bigger selection.
Mattress Topper for College Dorm Bed
Want to purchase a gift that teens will love and use a ton? Look no further than a mattress topper. Dorm room beds aren’t exactly awesome when it comes to comfort. Change that with a mattress topper. This is one gift that my son specifically requested once he moved into his college dorm.
Amazon Audible Membership
Whether your student is an avid reader or a slow reader, Amazon Audible is a fabulous gift idea! And right now, you can purchase a membership for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months! With an Amazon Audible membership, students can listen to their favorite thrillers or romances while on the go.
And students who struggle to keep up with all the reading for the English prerequisite classes will ace their exams as they easily listen to required reading!
Headphones or Earbuds Make an Excellent College Gift
Whether your student is listening to their favorite tunes, podcast or watching YouTube videos, these Sony earbuds will really be handy! And as my techie son found these, I know they will have all the stuff your teen needs!!:)
My digital media graduate son also recommends these headphones from Audio-Technica as a great sounding set of headphones. They were his first choice for a mid-price range pair of headphones.
Really watching the budget? Check out these headphones here. They also were recommended as a good set of headphones for the budget conscience student!
Tech Loving Student Goodies
Have a tech loving student? I would say most teens seem to love their technology on some level or another! Check out these extra goodies that will make there life easier or more fun!
These Animal Charger Phone Protectors are the cutest things! My friend and her daughter ordered some and shared with us! I have to say, I smile every time I plug in my phone. Animal charger phone protectors clip onto your phone charger cord protecting the weak area that can get over used every time you plug in your phone, making them practical and fun!
Don’t forget these little Velcro cord management life savers for keeping the room tidy and all the cords wrapped nicely! Or buy them now and add them to your teen’s stocking at Christmas!
And don’t forget to make sure your student has one of these clip on lights to clip to their bed. Your student will really appreciate this light, especially if they are on the top bunk!
Kitchen and Bath Dorm Life Gifts
One of our son’s first purchases as soon as he moved into the dorm was a dish set. He wanted to have a simple plastic dishware set that he could clean, but that wasn’t anything super nice. Often college students eat breakfast or a late night meal in their room. So having a few dishes helped!
In our household we discovered that the tall laundry basket worked best for dorm life as it functioned as a hamper and laundry basket! Love that this one collapses and comes in all your favorite school colors!
Is your student going back to college or starting college in the fall? What are you adding to your shopping list?
