College Campus Checklist — Huge Guide with 37 College Essentials for Guys
High school graduation season — when young adults are full of promise and expectations, ready to begin their journey into adulthood.
Some may be college bound, some may be entering the workforce. Others may make the decision to serve our country.
But one thing’s for sure — their lives will inevitably be changing.
No longer a teenager in high school, they will be encountering new opportunities and facing new challenges.
Having raised two sons myself, I can definitely testify at times it was hard — for all of us.
But once they had that diploma in their hands, it was clearly worth it — the significance of what they’d accomplished — and where it might lead them in the future.
So what kind of gift can you get a graduate to help meet life’s next challenge?
Are there practical gifts that can provide a small boost, that step up to their next stage in life?
I don’t know about you, but I really believe finding a graduation gift for a boy is so much harder than for a girl.
Maybe because my sons are a little more reserved, and less likely to share details or expand on their personal thoughts. I swear, sometimes it’s like pulling teeth to get a full sentence from them!
But I’ve seen many posts out there with graduation gift ideas for college-bound girls, and not so much geared toward males. That’s why I really feel like it’s sooo much harder to find graduation gifts for guys.
I did a lot of searching 5 years ago when my son finished his high school journey and was preparing to go to college.
And then, over those next four years, I discovered what products and tools were the most beneficial to him, and would allow him to begin his own personal journey to independence.
In other words, by providing him with a head start, without hindering his ability to transition into adulthood.
For example, making him a starter kit of laundry essentials, vs. allowing him to bring dirty clothes home once a month for mom to do his laundry 🙂
So call it a college freshman survival kit, or just call it an away-from-home care package.
Here is a SUPER LONG list of college essentials for the guy in your life who is ready to move on to the next stage as an adult. And if you’re looking for some unique yet useful “graduation gifts for him”, look no further. HERE is the only list of items you’ll need.
