5 Practical, Meaningful Gifts for College Students

What to Get a College Student

Our Ohio State students are headed back to campus in the next few weeks! This is a wonderful time to support their independence and help them be successful. Choose to send a practical but meaningful gift to your college student in the first week of class. Let them know you’re thinking about them and also help them be prepared for everything that comes their way. The designers at Griffin Floral Design have compiled a list of some practical, meaningful gifts. Students may not even realize they’ll want to have some of these in the coming semester!

Gift That Warm the Heart

purple, lilac, and lime colored modern bouquet


Special Deliveries To Show You Care Let your student know how proud you are of their accomplishments. A beautiful bouquet of flowers or lasting plant design is great ways to send that message.


A compact design like Lilac Fields will fit nicely on any student’s desktop and brighten every room. Full of garden-fresh flowers in stylish purple, lavender and lime green hues, this fresh display is sure to impress.


Hand-blown glass vase filled with orchids, daisies, and so much more

Our Classic Gourmet Set includes gourmet cheese and crackers, olives and cashews, fresh fruit, plus a classic wooden cutting board & knife set. Satisfy midnight cravings and keeping them going strong during marathon study sessions with this delightful surprise.

Other Fabulous Presents

TV Streaming Device Make sure they can get to class and follow all their favorite TV shows when you give them a TV streaming device. No need to miss class, they can just watch their programs when they want as much as they want.

Tablet & Accessories Larger computers and laptops are absolutely essential for college students. However, a tablet will keep them engaged and working hard each and every day. Add accessories like a protective case and portable keyboard for added convenience. 

Storage Solutions Fitting in all of their personal belongings to a small dorm or shared apartment can be a difficult task. With storage containers of varying shapes and sizes, your student can store everything they need. They may even free up some space for themselves!

Microwave Accessories & Treats Microwave meals are a staple in college but they don’t have to be unhealthy. Gift your student with a healthy microwave recipe book or accessories that allow them to make delicious treats easily in the microwave.


Whatever you choose to send to your student, remember that it’s the thought that counts. They should know without a doubt that you are thinking about them and have their best interest in mind. The gift you send can be meaningful, pragmatic and thoughtful. For more great gift ideas for college students, talk to the designers at Griffins Floral Design.
