University Survival Basket

My sister went off to University this weekend and I wanted to give her a fun but practical Good Luck gift so I decided to put together a University Survival Basket for her.

Over the past few weeks I collected bits here and there and filled the basket which I got from here. I included the following;

  • Antibacterial Wipes
  • Antiseptic Cream
  • Arrow Labels
  • Earplugs
  • Lemsip Max
  • Lint Roller
  • Mini Highlighters
  • Mini Multi Tool
  • Paracetamol
  • Photo Frames x 2
  • Sealing Clips
  • Shot Glasses
  • Student Cookbook
  • Tissue Box
  • Waterproof Plasters

Other ideas for what to include: mini sewing kit, can opener, bottle opener, essential beauty items, fairy lights and alarm clock. Some of these things I definitely need to take my time chosing though as there are so many different brands around, I need to find the best one! For things like the can opener I have spent some time looking at the top picks from 10Mango which have been super useful.
I basically brought my sister a few practical items (e.g. antibacterial wipes and multi tool), things to make her room a bit more homely (e.g. photo frames), provisions incase she gets freshers flu (e.g. paracetamol and tissues) and a few fun/ cute things (like the shot glasses and stationery). I also thought the storage basket would be a nice addition to her room.

I went to a local University and lived at home so I didn’t go through the level of change she inevitably must be going through. I really wanted to put together something thoughtful that would make her feel loved and ease any mixed emotions/ homesickness she might be feeling.

I thought I would share my University Survival Basket gift idea with you as it may be something you’d like to use. What would you include if you made a University Survival kit?
