Searching for a personal, useful and affordable gift for a recent high school graduate moving to college this fall? Well look no further! With a little help from Sterilite you can create the ultimate College Survival Kit with all of the essentials they’ll need for their freshman year of school.
Graduating high school and starting college can be overwhelming and getting used to a different place that isn’t your home can be frightening. Therefore, giving a gift that adds a personal touch will mean so much to them! Whether this gift is for your child, sibling, or friend the Sterilite College Survival Kit is ideal for anyone starting college this fall!
Be creative! Any of our Ultra Laundry Baskets makes the perfect base for a personalized goodie basket. Not to mention they can use this basket for all of their laundry needs while living on campus. My personal favorite is the 1.25 Bu HipHold Laundry Basket. It comes in two great colors, and the contoured shape makes it comfortable to rest on your hip. This is perfect when going up and down multiple flights of stairs to the laundry room in your freshman dorm.
Once you pick out a laundry basket, fill it with some of their favorite treats, a little piece of home, and some college essentials. Try to customize it with some of their personal favorites. For example, if they play sports you can fill the basket with headbands, a water bottle, or any equipment needed for the given sport. You can also try adding some fun picture frames, their favorite snacks, room decorations or a warm fuzzy blanket and fun pillows to make their room feel more like home.
In addition to personalized items, every incoming freshman needs the college essentials, especially if they are living on campus. To help, simply go to your local discount store or shopping center and pick out some everyday essentials that a college student would need!
Here are some ideas to help you out:
• Pens/ Pencils
• Instant Food
• Candy/ Snacks
• First Aid Kit
• Clothing Hangers
Moving away to school can be hard, so having a little piece of home can be very comforting. That is why this personalized gift using our Laundry Basket is perfect for anyone moving into campus this year.
