It sure is Christmas and another season of giving, even though I don’t have kids in College, knowing that they are grown up makes it harder to figure out what they need or want to have as a gift. Then I know that it can sometimes be difficult to figure out what to get them for the holidays. They don’t have a lot of space in the dorm room for the same things that they had at home. That doesn’t mean that there are no ideas for Christmas gift baskets that you can send to your kids or that you can give to them when they are home for the holidays.
Make Use of Gift Baskets
Gift Baskets make it a lot easier to give these things out: Below are some of my suggestions:
- A basket with sweatpants and sweatshirts is an option for Christmas. Roll the clothing so that it easily goes into the basket.
- Include a few notebooks, laundry supplies, and a few other items that are needed for classes so that the spring semester gets off to a good start.
- A basket with gift cards is another fun option to consider. College students sometimes don’t have a lot of money to spend on extravagant foods, new clothes, movies, or other things that they used to get at home. You can include gift cards to various stores or just a few VISA gift cards so that the student can use the money anywhere.
Make Gift – giving Fun and Creative
You can make a basket that is themed based on the needs that you know your child might have. An idea would be a laundry basket with various types of laundry detergent, a laundry bag, dryer sheets, and a few rolls of quarters. Another option would be to make a basket with things to wear outside in the winter, such as gloves, a hat, and a scarf. You could also make a basket for Christmas with items that are comforting when your child is sick, such as a favorite movie, soups that can be heated in the microwave, a blanket, or medications that can be taken during cold and flu season.
What are your gift-giving ideas that are useful and practical?
