5 Interesting Gift Ideas For College Students

Interesting Gift Ideas For College

Leaving for college is an exciting time in a student’s life. The newfound independence and responsibility is a great way for them to grow into adults. It can be challenging to let them go, however, when we want to protect them and watch out for them. So, the designers at Bice’s Florist have compiled a list of interesting gifts you can send your student to let them know you’re thinking of them while also setting them up for success along the way. Here are a few things your student may not even realize they need that you can heroically provide.

Flowers, Gift Baskets, And Plants Show You Care!



Happy Thoughts for the Coming Year Along with the more practical items college students can use, they need to know how much you care. Let them know you’re thinking of them, missing them and wish them all the success in the world this year with a fresh bouquet delivered right to their doorstep. Our Sunlit Meadows plays with warm and cool tones to create a kaleidoscope of colors throughout your student’s dorm room. Arriving in a cool aqua blue vase and filled with sunflowers, carnations, daisies and roses, this piece will delight your student to no end!





Spoil your student with our Snack Attack basket! Full of candy and cookie treats, your student and their roommates won’t see this awesome party coming!





Let him know you’re thinking of him and spruce up his dorm room at the same time with one of our “Just For Him” gifts! From rustic planters to delicious snacks, help him start the semester off right!


Succulents make the perfect addition to any dorm room because they’re compact, easy to maintain, and super trendy right now. Send your student a dish garden or desktop design to let them know you’re thinking of them and motivate them all semester long.

Other Gift Ideas

Tablet/accessories While a laptop is a must-have in college, consider also gifting your student with a tablet. Include accessories like a portable keyboard, protective case and extra chargers to simplify their life and give them even more connectivity while on the go.

Safe Students will find the availability of a sturdy safe a true help. Financial records, emergency cash, and important documents can be protected and stowed away easily with a small safe that fits under the bed or in their closet.

Organizers/Storage With such limited space to work with, students need all the help they can get staying organized. A few storage containers in varying shapes and sizes can be the difference between wasted space and efficient tidiness. 

Gas/Grocery Gift Cards Students have limited resources and are still learning to stretch a budget. So, once in a while, send them a sweet “Thinking of You” card with a gas or grocery gift card tucked inside. For an extra surprise, throw in a gift card to their favorite shop or restaurant, too.


College students have a lot of needs as they navigate the world ahead of them. Most of all, they need to know you love and miss them. Send useful items as surprises to encourage them on their path. The design experts at Bice’s Florist will be happy to help you find even more thoughtful gifts and treats to send to your college student.
