  • Awesome idea! You could put in little candies, college staples like ramen noodles, maybe some cute paper clips, or magnets for the fridge. Maybe make some recipe cards up for foods that she could make in the dorm. Get hot cocoa mix and a cute mug. There are tons of fun things you could do!

  • If she drinks coffee you could check Walmart for a small coffee maker. I got a coffee maker, iron, and toaster for college kids there last year all for $15.
