It's that time of year again. When classes begin and the new batch of students enroll to begin their first year of college. An exciting time, right? If you have a sibling who is starting college this year, go on and encourage them with these awesome gifts.
College Essentials 101: Great Gifts For Your Sibling
Seed Paper Stationery Kit
If your sibling is a stationery hoarder and can't live without their notepads to jot down all their random ideas, gift them this set from Plantables. Best part, once they have used all the stationery, they can plant the paper in soil to grow plants from the waste paper. How cool is that?
Mahogany Wood Crockery Organiser With Blackboard
If your sibling is moving away from home, they will definitely find this crockery organiser from Unisoul useful. We think it can also double up as a penstand. Plus, it's got an erasable blackboard so they can leave little reminders for themselves or their housemates.
Hemp Backpack From Bleaf
Backpacks. Is there anything more essential to a college student? And a good one that will last years and can fit in their laptop and study books are definitely a boon. This hemp one from Bleaf is a favourite pick of ours.
Navy Sleek And Minimal Dual Strap Laptop Bag
If your sibling is not a backpack fan and prefers to look less college student and more professional, they will appreciate this sleek navy laptop bag from Daily Objects. It is in faux leather and is ideal as it will match with any outfit.
Go Brew Filter Coffee Maker
There's nothing like a good shot of caffeine to kickstart your day. If your sibling has early morning classes and really doesn't have the time to drink their coffee on those rushed mornings, gift them this awesome on-the-go brewer from Cafflano. We love how convenient it is! Perfect for those of us who hate instant coffee.
6W LED Table Lamp
Your sibling is going to be pulling a lot of all-nighters. It is a part of college life. A good desk lamp is a great investment so they can study peacefully without disturbing anyone else, especially if they share an apartment. This one from Decon is a great buy and sleek enough to fit even on a cluttered desk!
Warm White Photo Clip String Lights
What's college without memories? This photo string light combines two things that are essential to a college student - a moody fairy-light room and photos, plenty of 'em!
