Baskets for College Students

Baskets For College Students If you know someone going to college, you can create a basket of treats that can be used in the dorm room. A benefit is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money making simple gift baskets that are various themes depending on what the student would like or what the student would need. A nice container for the items that you’re going to give is a small laundry basket or a plastic storage container that can be used for various items in the dorm room.

Almost every college student needs laundry supplies unless they are able to take their laundry home. You can use a laundry basket as the container, filling it with everything from a bottle of detergent to dryer sheets and stain removers. You can also include air fresheners, dish detergent, scent boosters for washing clothes, and a foldable laundry bag to make carrying clothes to the laundry room a bit easier.

Another basket you can make for a college student contains hygiene items. Many students don’t have a lot of extra money to get the things they need for the bathroom for personal hygiene, so this kind of basket would be beneficial. You can also personalize this type of basket with scents that the student likes or scents and colors that coordinate with the gender of the student. A container idea is a shower caddy that can be taken with the student when going to the bathroom or shower room. Items in this basket can include mouthwash, toothpaste, toothbrushes, body wash, shampoo and conditioner, and a pair of flip-flops to wear in the shower. You could also add toilet paper, paper towels, and other toiletry items that the student might not think about taking to college. Deodorant and a nice body spray are also ideas to include, which is where you want to look at scents that the student enjoys wearing more than with other items that you include.
