Choosing a gift for a college bound student need not be confusing. Consider their needs, likes, and living situation and go from there. This is a guide about gift ideas for new college students.
My husband and I have been discussing what to do next year when both a niece and nephew go off to college. We are going to give each a small crock-pot and sandwich grill. This will provide them with a way to make a decent hot meal, for much less then any cafe or dining-hall. I am collecting recipes for both of these items so they will not have to wonder what to do with them.
