For those of you that just graduated high school, you will all soon be going your separate ways and following your different paths.  Whether your friends are going to college close to home or moving into a school across the country, everyone could use a college starter pack to take along with them!  It’s a perfect gift idea for upcoming grad parties. That being said, here’s what you’ll need to put in it!

  • Gum.  Chelsea Crockett - Freshman Starter KitOkay, but really… You can never have too many packs of gum, especially as a college student!  Having gum at-hand to pop in during class or after the dining hall is essential!
  • A pic of you and them.  Get your favorite picture of you and them developed for them to put it up somewhere in their dorm room.  You can even frame it so they can use it as decoration!
  • Advil.  This is essential considering your mom won’t be there to take care of you when you get sick!  It helps to start you off with some medicine in case you get a head or stomach ache.
  • An adhesive phone pocket.  If you don’t know what these are, they’re a stick-on pocket you stick to the back of your phone.  This is perfect for holding your dorm access keys, college ID, money, etc.
  • Microwavable meals/snacks.  These are crucial!  Having food you can make right in your dorm are one of the most important must-haves of college.  Late night snacks will come in handy!

I hope this makes your college transition a little easier! 🙂

Love, Chelsea

It’s graduation season ladies and gentlemen, which means lots of graduation ceremonies, parties, and gifts!  If you have a lot of graduation parties to attend, the gifts can get pretty expensive and start to add up.  Here are a few DIY gift ideas that are just as good as any other graduation gift but won’t break the bank!

  • DIY canvas.Chelsea Crockett - Canvas  I know this might seem pretty basic, but creating a canvas to match your friend’s dorm room is a fun, artsy gift!  You can add her favorite saying, verse, quote, etc. like the picture on the right.
  • High school scrapbook.  If you guys were close in high school, ask your friends to put together a page to add to a scrapbook for her!  You and your friends can even all go in on it together.  It’s thoughtful and memorable!
  • A bracelet/necklace/keychain with their school’s colors.  There are so many Etsy DIY accessories that you can customize to say certain things or be a certain color.  Customize it to have her name on it or her class year and her future school’s colors!
  • Freshman year survival kit.  Everyone could use one of these!  You basically put together a basket, or “kit,” filled with different essentials every freshman needs such as pencils, snacks, band-aids, etc.
  • College gear.  I know when I left for college, I wanted every shirt, sweatshirt, bumper sticker, etc. that my school had to offer!  Order something online or check out the college’s bookstore for a cute shirt or other souvenirs!

Which idea is your favorite?  Let me know in the comment section below!

XOXO – Chelsea
