With two sons in college this year, the gift selections are going to be a lot different than in previous years. Although their stockings will still be filled with the traditional Pez Dispensers, toothbrushes and socks, this year’s gifts will be specific to their needs and not their wants. Malik lives in the dormitory at Bowie State University so here are the gifts that I have selected for him:
he is not a coffee drinker so I will include Tea K-cups
these are so much easier to carry down to the laundry room as opposed to a large bottle of detergent
I won’t forget the quarters
Rapid Ramen Noodles Cooker for the Microwave
this is a new product that I may have to buy for myself – I still eat Ramen Noodles, so don’t judge!
Heavy Hooded Jacket
walking across campus in the cold snow, rain and winds, he’ll definitely need a heavy, insulated jacket, gloves and hat
Tayair on the other hand lives at home and drives to the University of Delaware. He, however, catches a shuttle bus and also walks on campus so he’ll also need a heavy winter jacket, hat and gloves, along with these items:
shuttle buses run pretty regularly but while sitting in the bus shelter he can listen to music or a podcast while he waits
the chair he has now is flat on the floor causing him to look up, so, a style like this would eliminate the back strain that he must be feeling
In addition to a few gift cards and gas money I’ll also get them a few Avon products including a fragrance gift set and new slippers which they both need.
Now I guess it’s time to start working on a list for hubby, but he’s easy to shop for.
Have you started shopping for gifts yet?
