We are what we eat, and people who don’t eat nutritious foods are more likely to have a hard time focusing on their studies. With so many unhealthy food choices, sugar-filled soda drinks, and juices in the college environment, it’s easy for a student to fall into bad dietary habits. This healthy snack gift box contains highly nutritious foods that are also delicious. These are perfect college gift baskets for any college student that needs good nourishment in order to achieve optimal academic performance. Order online today!
Coffee is not only a brain-boosting, antioxidant-rich beverage consumed by exhausted new parents. It’s a college student beverage of choice when studying overnight and cramming for exams. Coffee helps students recharge their batteries after a late night of studying and get that much-needed energy boost. Coffee, anyone?
Spa Day Gift Card
Stressed for exams and approaching deadlines? One of the best ways to de-stress is to relax. A quick massage or facial will help students relax, recharge, and return to their studies with a clear and focused mind. And, most importantly, de-stressing will improve with their overall academic performance. I recommend supporting local businesses first, but if you can’t find a local business, check out Massage Envy, which has multiple locations across the U.S. at affordable prices. Another option is a spa day in a box, which has everything you need to relax and recharge without leaving the house.
Make Your Own College Box
Do you have extra time and a little bit of creativity? Grab a standard box or recycle an Amazon box and make your own college gift box! You can’t go wrong including basic hygiene and healthcare items in your homemade college gift box. Go to Target or local grocery store and grab a few common items that students may need help replenishing such as toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, mouthwash, deodorant, shampoo and conditioner, razors, pens, highlighters, notepads, Advil, first aid kit, water bottle, laundry detergent, and cleaning supplies such as Lysol wipes. Don’t forget purell!
School is tough, but so are you! I love this gift box for students who need an extra push of encouragement and a friendly reminder hard work pays off. Box includes a rechargeable battery for students always on-the-go, portable light for late-night studying, a pack of pens and pen pouch, lip balm, and a coffee mug to start your mornings off right.
Rough night? Grab a box of nourishing food and send your friend or loved one a hangover gift box to help them feel better. This gift includes everything you need to fix that lingering headache, bad breath, lost electrolytes, and even get some shut-eye.
Succulents are in! These small, but mighty plants need very little to thrive and are remarkably forgiving. Care instructions are kept to a minimum making it suitable for any busy college student to care for. Plus, who doesn’t love a house plant?
