I shop at https://www.dormco.com/?Click=18851 and get each of my children their dorm essentials as a high school graduation gift.It is a very practical gift and is something that will be used for many years to come. The "dorm in a trunk" is great as it is all their bedding needs and a trunk for underbed storage. The flat shipping rate of $2.95 is great too!

One of my son's friends was asking for an iphone, and a couple of others also received phones. My son discussed it with me and was happy to rather get one of Tracfone's smartphones, because he didn't want to have to deal with the monthly bill that would accompany such data hungry phones as the iphone. Phone savings as a student can make a difference in both your stress levels and the quality of student living. Because he is prepared to manage finances responsibly, we will be assisting with the repayment of his student loan.
