It’s back to school time and not only are kids headed to elementary, junior and high school, but college is right around the corner. My friends are dropping their kids off and it’s made me realize how close we are to the same. I put together a cute survival kit with printables as an easy gift idea!
I recently attended my 20 year high school reunion! I can’t believe it’s been 20 years since I graduated with my best friends and got ready for college. I loved loved loved high school and I never wanted it to end. But I was excited for college and being on my own too.
I remember this day like yesterday. We all thought we were so old and mature. Ha! Little did we know…. it was a blast reconnecting with these girls at our reunion. We picked back up right where we left off. I’m so grateful for the experiences I had with them – they were a huge part of shaping who I am today.
When I got to college (Go Cougars!) – I was lucky to meet new friends right away. These girls made college an experience for sure. I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into by leaving my family and being on my own. I thought I was independent. Ummm not really. But I learned a lot and grew a ton in my time there.
For today’s gift idea, you can gather things that are specific to the recipient. Might I suggest a few things?
Included in my survival kit:
- Cute clipboard
- favorite pens
- Schick Quattro Razors
- shaving cream
- first aid kit
- nail polish
and the Dorm Sweet Dorm framed print. Isn’t it adorable?
I went shopping at Rite Aid for some of the supplies including the razors. They had a bunch to choose from but I chose the Schick Quattro because that’s what I use regularly.
I couldn’t help but make a printable tag to go along with my kit. I found the quote and thought it was perfect for someone headed off to college.
You can download these tags to use. For personal use and subscribers only. Thank you!
