1. Stuff They Can Wear
Your grad is going to need a few new apparel pieces for everything from gamedays to those dreaded "walking to class in the rain" situations.
Clear Gold Chain Crossbody Purse
Most college stadiums require clear bags for gamedays- this option is available for pretty much every team out there, and it's cute!
Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella
It happens to the best of us- sometimes you just have to get to class when it's pouring rain. This compact umbrella is perfect for any college student on the go.
Hydro Flask Stainless Steel Water Bottle
We've said it before, and we'll say it again: Hydration is key. It's so important that a water bottle should pretty much be a staple accessory at this point. BONUS: This bottle comes in a huge variety of colors.
Portable Garment Steamer
There's not really enough room in most dorms for a full iron and ironing board set up. This portable steamer will keep your grad looking neat and put together at all times.
2. Stuff for Their Tech Needs
We're living in the Digital Age, and every grad definitely needs (or at least wants) technology to make their lives easier.
LuminoLite Rechargeable Clip Light
Your grad is going to college to learn, after all! This is the perfect accessory for those late night study sessions.
Water Repellent Neoprene Laptop Sleeve
Pretty much every college student has a laptop they carry around- this case will ensure they keep their tech safe and sound!
Anker PowerCore+ Portable Charger
Pssst... Moms: This is a good one- your grad will never be able to say they couldn't call you because their phone died!
There's nothing worse than being late for class because you couldn't find your keys- these Tile keychains will help your grad keep up with their stuff!
3. Stuff for Their Dorm
Your grad is likely going to spend a lot of time in their dorm room- these gifts will help make it as cozy and functional as possible!
Collapsible Laundry Basket
Everyone needs a cozy blanket to snuggle up with while catching up with the latest Netflix show- we think this design is pretty awesome.
Attmu Mesh Shower Caddy
If your grad is going to be sharing a bathroom with roommates or hallmates, they'll probably need something to tote their shower supplies in.
