Graduation gift idea: Study Session Survival Kit
I’m in the middle of another graduation season! It’s so fun to watch kids I’ve known since they were in preschool walk across the stage to get their diploma.
As part of graduation season, we get invited to A LOT of celebrations.
I want to honor these kids, but I also need to maintain a budget.
For the girls we don’t know as well, or haven’t had a close personal relationship, I’m giving them these graduation gifts once again.
Since I now have a kiddo in college, I asked her what she actually used at school.
She told me one of the most useful things she brought to college was her Quirky Power Strip. She said it was awesome for late night study sessions when everyone needed a place to plug in their laptops.
Honestly? Giving just a power strip seemed kinda lame. It just doesn’t scream of a celebration. But tucking it into a Study Session Survival Kit seemed like something fun that I would like to get!
IDEAS FOR A STUDY SESSION SURVIVAL KIT:
- Quirky Power Strip
- Snacks (I let the girls pick. They wanted a salty and a sweet. We went with popcorn and fruit strips.)
- Caffeinated Beverages
- Something Fun – We went with a beach ball
- Optional: A gift card for a local delivery place like a Jimmy John’s or a pizza place.
I packed everything up in a tub that they could also use in their dorm room.
I chose to add a chalkboard label to the lid of my gift. I wrote “Late Night Study Session” on the label.
Since it is a chalkboard label, they can erase my message and use it to label whatever they chose to store in it.
What else would you include in a Study Session Survival Kit?
