5 Back-To-School Gifts College Students Need

Gifts Students Want

Soon college students, including our very own Salisbury University students, will be returning to campus for a long semester away from home. This is a great time to let your student know how much you love them and will miss them while they’re gone. A wonderful way to communicate this is with the gift that is both practical and meaningful. So, the designers at Kitty’s Flowers have compiled a list of items that college students may not even realize they’ll need. They’ll be grateful for your thoughtfulness and glad to know you’re thinking of them.

Send A Gift That Shows You Care

To Know You Care More than anything, students need to know that they are loved and missed. When you send a beautiful floral arrangement, fresh plant design or delicious gift basket, you will remind your student that you are thinking of them and encouraging them throughout the semester.



Make sure your student leaves Perfect Impressions during her first week of class as she makes new friends, classmates and roommates. This gorgeous design will encourage her as it features roses, lilies, gerbera daisies, iris, snap dragons, and carnations in a tall glass vase with a lovely pink bow.

Other Gifts

Portable Chargers Your student and all of their electronics are on the go every day all day. Make sure they stay charged up and ready for action when you will gift them with a portable charger for their computer, tablet and cell phone.

Linens Sleeping away from home can be difficult at first. Make sure there is something special on their bed before you leave the dorm room. A favorite pillow, homemade quilt or fluffy comforter will be a special reminder of home.

Bike Having a bike on campus can simplify life for your student. Instead of paying steep parking fees and searching for hours for the perfect spot, students can easily navigate campus and get some exercise in between class, as well.

Laundry Accessories No one likes doing laundry, especially college students. But with the right accessories they can get the job done easily… and more than once a semester. Send a sturdy laundry basket or bag, reusable dryer balls, hangers and other laundry accessories to help your student’s laundry become less work.


Make sure students know they are in your thoughts and heart as they head off to college. Sending a practical, meaningful gift is a great way to express your support and encouragement.
