5 Awesome Gifts For College Students

Leaving for college is a big step- students are entering a whole new world full of independence and responsibility. We want to help them spread their wings. But, we also want to make sure they are well cared for and protected while they’re away from home. Let them know how much you miss them and think of them when you gift them with items that are both practical and thoughtful. The designers at Central Square Florist have started a list of awesome gifts for college students. They might not realize that they’re going to need or want some of these until they arrive on campus. But you can rest knowing you have shown your love and affection and taken care of them as they set out on their own.

Send Flowers, Plants, or Gift Baskets

Awesome Thoughts From Home While students love being independent, they also need to know how much they love and miss them. Send a beautiful bouquet of cut flowers, a fresh green plant, or a gift basket of treats to remind them that you’re cheering them on at school.



Perfect for the fall semester, our Autumn Day design features yellow tulips, orange roses, and green orchids, and hydrangea for a sunny look. Brighten even the smallest spaces with this leaf-lined glass cube vase and gorgeous fall-inspired blooms. What a terrific gift to receive during the first week of school!

Other Gift Ideas

Organizers Storage space is always at a premium in dorms or shared apartments. Help your student keep their space organized when you send storage containers in various shapes and sizes. Your student will appreciate being efficient and able to store-and later, find- all of their belongings.

Noise-Canceling Headphones Finding a quiet spot to study can be challenging on a busy college campus. Help your student block it all out with a pair of noise-canceling headphones. Now they can study anywhere anytime without distraction.

Bike A lot of times the parking situation on a college campus is confusing, if not terrifying. It’s also usually expensive. By investing in a bicycle for your student, you will allow them to get across campus with ease and save a few bucks in the process!

Safe A sturdy safe tucked under the bed or in the closet can be the perfect way to protect sensitive documents, financial records or even stow a bit of emergency cash. Your student will be grateful for a way to keep personal items safe.

The most important thing you can give your college student as they head off for the fall is the knowledge that you’re thinking about them and care for them. When you invest in their day-to-day life, you invest in their future. Talk to the designers at Central Square Florist for more great ways to support your college student with awesome gifts and thoughtful gestures this fall.
