Sending college students off to school can often be a big transition. They will be on their own for the first time, they may have moments of missing home, and you will have your moments of letting go, too. Make the move into a college dorm room a little easier with a few tips from the experts at Bice’s Florist. You’ll both be glad you did.
One way to help students transition is to give their dorm room some reminders of home. Make this college experience go smoothly by helping your student feel settled. You can do this in a number of ways- with a framed picture, a card or letter, or a long-lasting plant that softens the look of the room. Not only will a few well-placed plants create a home-like environment, plants also decrease stress and increase productivity- two things every college student needs!
Our Zen Garden, shown above, is a great option for a less-stressed dorm room. Bromeliads give off air-purifying oxygen. Plus, caring for a plant is proven to reduce stress!
Another great option that won’t take up too much space in a shared dorm room is our Desktop Garden, featured here. Even just looking at greenery while studying can increase memory function and productivity.
Some other great options to help your college student through the move from home to school are care packages. Snacks and coffee will fuel late-night study sessions and provide a pick-me-up during long days of classes.
Our Starbucks Sampler, shown here, is perfect for the coffee-loving student in your life!
Send your favorite sports fan our Sports Fanatic gift box, full of sports goodies and tasty treats.

These bonds are like no other- the unique relationship between siblings lasts a lifetime.
