  • well there is money but for a gift you could get a laundry basket and fill it with what she needs at college
    a safe for protecting her valuables
    a set of plastic drawers or under the bed storage bin
    a microwave
    a lamp
    a rug
    a fan
    towels and sheets in xtra long twin
    gift cards to any place with food or stores
    What I have seen is kids get a ton of cash and their parents have no control so it gets blown over the summer
    I have a kid going into her 3rd year and she took her money and bought a laptop and saved the rest for books but her friends blew right threw their money
    my last girl is going to her first year of college and I am in control of the money because she admitted she would just spend it. When the time comes I will give her the cash for books and whatever else she needs

  • A $20 is typical where I am from. But girls also love photo albums and things along those lines

  • Money. And the closer the family member, the more money.
