Consider These Memorable Gifts For Christmas

Christmas is coming and maybe you are just now beginning to shop for your loved ones. If you are a parent of a high school senior, this holiday season can be a great time to start buying some items your college bound student will need for school right now. Your student can make use of that new desk or laptop computer months before leaving for school and they’ll have one less item to shop for later. College-themed gifts can be a great way to prepare your student for college months before they leave your home.

7 Gift Giving Ideas Sure To Please

Clothing — Students who applied and were accepted early for college know where they will be attending school next year. Why not reward them for all of their hard work by ordering a college sweatshirt, cap, and matching pants to wear right now? Just in time for the football bowl season and college hoops your student will look fashionably correct as they cheer on their future alma mater.

Linens — Grandparents, siblings and other family members can get into the game by purchasing bed linens, towels, even a throw rug for the dorm room. You already know his or her favorite colors, so why not help everyone by sharing some gift-giving ideas?

Computers — Will it be a PC or will it be a MAC? Most schools require students to bring along a computer and the best deals can be had during the holiday season. Make sure that you order one with tons of memory to last your student for the full four years of her undergrad studies.

Tickets — With the basketball season in full swing, chances are your student is avidly rooting for their team. Maybe a trip to see an on-campus game is in order, an opportunity to cheer on the home team and do a follow up tour of the campus.

Furniture — Some dorm rooms come fairly well equipped while others are stripped. A reclining chair, computer desk, table, or small bookshelf are thoughtful gifts for any occasion including at Christmas.

Electronics — Music systems have changed dramatically over the years and you may find it difficult to get the right gift in this area. No worries, the major retailers issue gift cards which can be redeemed for the right item after the holidays and for year end prices too! Also, if your cell phone plan is set to expire, why not add your son or daughter to our new plan and spring for that Apple iPhone your student has had his eye on since last summer?

Transportation — Going off to college means that your student will need a way to get around campus, make trips home, and attend the occasional away sporting event. If your budget allows it, year end car sales have driven down the price of everything from a Chevrolet Aveo to a BMW 3-Series. If a new car is a bit too pricey, consider a young used car sold by Hertz, CarMax, or a certified late model vehicle from off the dealer’s lot.

Shop And Compare

Shopping online can make comparing prices a breeze, saving you a bundle on all of your purchases. Your son or daughter won’t be leaving for college for many more months, but shopping for items they can use now or store for later is a smart way to celebrate the season.
