Back to School: College Edition

It’s that time of year again, when stores stock up on milk crates, twin XL sheets and other dorm staples. Last year I inaugurated the annual back-to-school gift-giving tips for kids from kindergarten through college. This year we start with the campus-bound coeds and a slew of new gifts that scream “big man on campus”. Browse these top gift ideas by category.

Laptop or Tablet Messenger Bags

Hours spent chained to the computer lab are a thing of the past. Now that everyone is mobile and wired, a messenger bag to keep a laptop or tablet safe is a must. Go affordable and casual with a reliable, rugged brand, or go luxe with a streamlined leather number that transitions easily to the first job after graduating.


Other Tech Gear

iPod docks, portable speakers, USB anything—even the smallest tech gift will make a big impact (and will get used way more than that collegiate teddy bear you originally had in mind). Apple lovers can get a twofer with this iPad and iPhone dock and charger, or amplify their playlist with a smartphone speaker. If they’re traveling far, these postmark tablet cases are a sentimental touch.

Flash drives are a safe bet, safely transporting precious term papers. Spring for an Honest Abe version for a history major, Einstein for a science major, or a ninja. Just because.

Dorm Living Must-Haves

Lofted beds can only do so much. Lend a hand by maximizing space or being sensitive to a dorm dweller’s needs. This microwave bowl, for example, nukes soups, ramen, or any local dive leftovers while still staying cool to the touch.

Wake them up for that 9am lecture or keep them fueled for all-nighters with this single-serve Keurig coffee brewer. Easy K cups make for a fast cup of java without messy filters to contend with.

No more trips to the laundry room: this clever laundry pod washes a small load with a mere crank of the hand.

Looking to give something with a decorative touch? Spruce up walls with picture pockets, make a fun statement with maki, or have a bookworm cozy up with their latest textbook.
