5 Gifts To Encourage College Students

Send a Wonderful Gift

Leaving for college is truly a right of passage. As students head off to their new campus in the fall, it’s important to let them spread their wings. It’s also important to make them feel encouraged and supported. The designers at Conklyn’s Florist have created a list of gifts to encourage your college student as they leave. Send reminders of your care for them and help them make the most of this fall semester.

Floral and Gift Surprises to Show Them You Care

As independent as they are, students still need encouragement from time to time. A beautiful floral bouquet, a cool plant design or a delicious gift basket of treats are all great ways to send happy thoughts and help them power through the semester.

Great Gifts to Send

Microwave & Accessories Not too many college students are known for their gourmet cooking. But they do know how to run a microwave! With quick, easy meals that are simple to clean up, microwaves are a college student’s best friend. Send them fun microwavable recipes or even accessories that will help them cook almost-homemade items like scrambled eggs or s’mores right in their microwave.

TV Streaming Device Don’t let them miss class just to watch their favorite TV show! Send a TV streaming device that will allow them to watch their show whenever they want. Even on-the-go students need a chance to relax and unwind and this is the perfect way to do that.

Laundry Accessories Make laundry easy when you send accessories that help that job. Set them up to be successful and help them do their laundry with a sturdy basket or bag, hangers, drying racks and any other laundry tools. Make the job that much simpler and they’re more likely to actually do their laundry while away at school.

Portable Chargers Students these days are on the go! So are their electronics. With a portable charger at their side, they can stay connected while on the go for hours. Send portable chargers to keep their cell phones, tablets and laptops charged and in working order all day long.


Above all your students should know how much you care about them and miss them. Make sure the gifts you send are from the heart and as meaningful as they are pragmatic.
