Can you believe it? Your daughter is finally going off to college and you feel like 18 years just flew by. Do you still remember her first day of kindergarten and how her oversized school bag sat so adorably on her back? Or how about when she prepared for her very first day of high school? You think back on how nervous she was and didn’t quite know what to expect.
And now, it’s college.
College is a huge stepping stone for both parent and child. If your daughter is going away for their post-secondary education, it’s even harder to cope. Today, we came up with 5 essential items to keep your daughter as comfortable and organized as possible in her new, college-dorm life.
Bed In A Bag
I always loved the “bed-in-a-bag” concept. You may not want to invest too much money on sheets and comforters for your daughter’s dorm bed and so we found this AmazonBasics bedsheet set that’s perfect for keeping her room cutely decorated but won’t break the bank. With a high rating on Amazon, this comfortable bedding comes with a comforter, flat sheet, fitted sheet, two pillow shams, and two pillow cases – all for only $48.99 USD.
Stay Organized, Feel Beautiful
Okay, so maybe your daughter had to leave her full-sized vanity back home, but this Premium Quality Cosmetic Storage/Organizer is the perfect size for any dorm room! This organizer allows you to keep shelves clutter-free and she can easily view her brushes, palettes, and lipsticks in its convenient compartments. What’s even better is that this station is easy to maintain: a dime of mild soap and warm water will do the trick to keep it nice and clean. All you need is a mirror (or your laptop’s front-facing camera) and she’ll be all set to get ready for her next class!
Shower caddies are a total must for anyone living in a dorm. Your daughter can keep her hygiene products organized with this ultra-cute 7-Pocket Shower Caddy Tote. It’s lightweight and made of mesh, so it dries quickly and is mold-resistant. Now, she can keep her shampoo, soap, razors, and toothbrush in one place and conveniently carry them (in style) from the room to the showers. Genius!
Keeping Your Toes Warm!
Dorm room floors can get cold and uncomfortable, so we always suggest bringing a pair of your comfiest slippers when you make your big college move! We found these cozy cashmere slippers and not only do they do the trick but are super stylish as well (I mean, come on – who can say no to cashmere?)
Leave Me A Message
Message boards are a great (and cute!) way to stay organized and we thought this one by Board Dudes to be pretty awesome and practical (a winning combination!). We love the fact that it’s half cork board and have dry-erase, so your daughter can quickly “pencil in” her appointments and due dates, but tack on some fun pictures and magazine clippings. 18” x 22” in size and only $18.02 USD.
