It’s graduation season! Which means parties, and gifts, and big life changes ahead. To get your new college student off on the right foot I’ve rounded up some clutter-free grad gift ideas that they’ll actually need.
One of the hardest transitions to college is managing your schedule. An academic planner is designed for students to track their day-to-day class schedule, due dates, and projects. I recommend this undated planner to get started. Pens are also a nice add-on and these sharpie pens are some of my favorites.
School isn’t just books and notepads anymore. Everyone has a laptop and needs a way to tote it around. This laptop backpack is stylish, sturdy, and has amazing reviews.
With few places to sit in a dorm room, this bed shelf will keep things nice and tidy and within reach.
Laundry is usually a “fun” new activity for college students on their own for the first time. To cut down on the guess work try bundling eco-friendly detergent strips (I use and love them), stain remover bar, and laundry cheat sheet magnet.
I hope these grad gift ideas are helpful. To personalize your gift be sure to visit the IHB shop for custom labels.
