The beginning of August brings excitement and a little anxiety for new college students getting ready to live in a dorm or apartment for the first time. So many questions and so much to think about! Being prepared for dorm life can feel like a challenge. What can they bring? What should they buy, and what should they leave at home? The designers at Zeidler’s Flowers have got you covered with college care package ideas that you may not have considered. Your new college student will be so glad to arrive at school knowing that everything is taken care of!
Mini fridge. Grabbing a cold bottle of water on the way to class or grabbing a snack during a late night study session is much easier when there is a fridge in the dorm room. Having a supply of healthy foods like salads and fresh fruit will help your college student stay energetic and boost brainpower.
Cordless vacuum. Whether or not your dorm room is carpeted, a cordless vacuum can take care of all those little spills and keep their room mess free. Make sure to get one with an attached hand vacuum for getting tight places. For students living in an apartment, a good vacuum is a must have item.
Power Strip with surge protection. In today’s world most college students will have several electronic items (laptop, tablet, phone) that will need frequent charging to be usable. Make sure your student has at least one power strip to keep all these devices ready to go. And don’t forget to check out the cord length before buying!
Black out curtains. College students often need to grab a few winks when they can. Staying up late writing that paper or getting up early for a workout can mean that your student’s days are long and tiring. Taking a short nap in the afternoon is effortless when blackout curtains are used, A dark room and an inviting bed can make sure your student gets plenty of necessary sleep.
