Hey, everyone! It’s Lily here, and I recently wrapped up my freshman year at the University of Michigan. I wanted to share my some of my favorite gifts that are perfect for high school seniors. These presents are great for making  the transition into college life a little bit easier.

  • A Small Tool Box: You might be thinking, “A tool box? Really?” Trust me, it’s a game-changer. Having a basic set of tools can definitely be essential. A small tool box equipped with a hammer, screwdrivers, pliers, and other essentials will come in handy for assembling furniture, fixing minor issues, or simply being prepared for unexpected situations.



  • Laundry Bag Backpack: Laundry is a chore, especially in college. This laundry backpack combines functionality and convenience, allowing them to easily carry their dirty laundry to the dorm laundry room. With separate compartments for clean and dirty clothes, it helps maintain cleanliness and prevents mingling of fresh and worn items. This is the one I used!



  • Custom Plastic Cups with School Logo or Initials: Let’s toast to the graduates! Custom plastic cups personalized with their school logo or initials make for a fun gift. These were fun to bring to tailgates before football games! . Plus, the customized touch that makes it unique!



  • Jewelry Organizer Zip-Up Case: An organizer is great because they’ll want to keep their jewelry safe and tangle-free. A compact and portable zip-up case with different compartments, hooks, and pockets provides the perfect solution. They can neatly store their earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings, to prevent any messes


Trust me, as a soon to be college sophomore, I’ve seen firsthand the value of practical and thoughtful gifts. And of course a big thanks to my mom for teaching me how to give the perfect gift. Congrats to all the grads out there!
