What College Students Don’t Realize They Need

Returning to college campuses soon, students are eager to spread their wings and exert their independence. Parents, however, want to make sure students have everything they need and they are provided for throughout the semester. Make sure your student knows you’ve got their back no matter what when you send a meaningful gift that meets their needs. For this reason, the experts at Norfolk Florist have created a list of things college students often don’t even realize they need.

Gifts That Show You Care

A Special Delivery Just For Them Students love to receive mail and packages while they are away at college. Send something just to let them know you’re thinking of them. A beautiful floral design, a fun indoor plant, or an exciting gift basket will let them know you were thinking of them and supporting them this semester.


Our Succulent Garden delights the senses with brilliant greens and tons of texture. This piece will delight busy college students, too, since it’s so easy to care for.


Precious Posies Floral Bouquet - Pink and Green




Precious Posies bring soft color and a sweet surprise to your student’s doorstep! Pink roses, lilies and gerbera daisies arrive artfully designed in a desktop glass cylinder wrapped with bear grass. Accented with white lilies, this design brightens any room- even dorms!




Dipping Pretzels Gift Basket - Snack Basket

A fabulous reward for a hard day’s work arrives in this Pretzel Dippers Basket. Treat them to something they love with two flavors of pretzels and three types of mustard in a stylish willow basket. Repurpose the basket later for extra storage solutions in a crowded dorm room.

Other Gifts

Linens Students don’t get a lot of sleep, but when they do, make it comforting. Send a special pillow, homemade quilt or fuzzy blanket from home. That way, they’ll be reminded of the comforts of home while they’re away.

TV Streaming Device Give them one less excuse to miss class when you send a TV streaming device. Now they can watch what they want when they want, even in their busy schedule.

Desk Organizer Staying organized and clutter-free is imperative in college. Give your student a desk organizer for inside drawers or on top of their desk and help them find small office supply items quickly and easily. Staying organized and efficient will help them be successful this year.

Laundry Accessories No one likes to do laundry. So, make the job as easy as possible. Send accessories like re-usable dryer balls, a sturdy bag or basket, and convenient drying rack. If students find laundry easy, they’re more likely to do it!

Make sure your student knows that you love and support them. Send a gift that is helpful and thoughtful. Set them up for success and watch them thrive this semester.
