Christmas Present Ideas for Your Favorite College Student

When your son or daughter goes off to college, somehow they seem to become a new person virtually overnight. One day they are dependent on you for everything from doing their laundry to driving them to school and suddenly they are living an independent lifestyle and have become a person you really don’t know anymore. Their basic personality traits are the same, but their likes and dislikes have evolved, making it difficult to buy anything for them that you are certain they will appreciate. Why not get a bit of help from around the Web. Check out some Christmas present ideas for your favorite college student.
Personalized Jewelry with Meaningful Gemstones

If there is one thing which can be said of Millennials is that they are people who seek meaning in life. Where previous generations looked at accumulating wealth, this generation of young people are after doing something important with their lives. Millennials want to make an impact on the world they live in, and yes, it would be nice to make a good living, but more importantly to them, they want to add quality to the lives around them. As a result, meaningful personalized gemstone jewelry like morganites found on can speak of the compassion and love they hold in their hearts.
Laptop, Computer and Gaming Accessories

What college student doesn’t own a laptop? Not only do they take notes in class on a laptop, but college students are also active on social networks, active on gaming sites, and generally use that one digital device for everything from finding the best food in town to researching for their next big class assignment that carries a ton of weight on their final semester grade. Why not look around for innovative laptop or computer accessories they may not have. This is something they will use and think of you each time they pick them up. From lap desks to gaming controllers, there is always something your college student needs for their computers, laptops, and gaming systems. College students love gaming. That is a fact!
Gift Certificates to Their Favorite Clothing Stores

You no longer know what your college student is wearing because they live away from home. In fact, without a kid at home, you really don’t pay much attention to what any young person is wearing these days. Instead of buying them the same old things you did when they were in high school, why not give them a gift certificate to their favorite clothing store. Whether it’s the Nike shop in the mall or some trendy house of design they are partial to, a gift certificate lets them choose something they will wear and appreciate all the more.

While you might not know exactly what college students like these days, the Internet can be an invaluable resource. Check out what other kids their age are doing and, if in doubt, you can always buy them a gift certificate to their favorite store. No, your son or daughter may not be the kid you remember, but inside, they’re still the same, so go from there and you can’t go wrong.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
