DormCo Gets College Off on the Right Foot!

Disclosure: I received a product sample to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

The 12 Days of College Gift Kits are Available at DormCo.com
Each box has its own theme and is filled to the brim with related goodies.
If you're looking for the perfect gift to give or send to your college student, DormCo.com has got you covered. They've put together a nice variety of College Gift Packs in their 12 Days of College series. What does that mean? It means they've picked a theme and then stuffed a box (carefully of course) full of favorite items that go along with it. I encourage you to browse through them and pick out your favorites. These kits are awesome!

The kit even included a $5 gift card.

We've selected the Dean's List, which is a collaboration of desk (and other) supplies that are going to come in handy for any and all students, especially those who are living life in the dorm. Small/compact and jam-packed full of goodies, this is sure to be a welcome gift for any student.

Everything in here is useful!

There isn't anything in there that's not going to be 100% useful. From the calculator, to the stapler, to the dry erase board and markers (with an attached eraser), this college gift pack is a real student-pleaser.

Read at night without disturbing your neighbor.

It's also got some great additional perk items, like this book light pictured above. Dorm room reading can be a challenge if your roommate is trying to get some sleep. This little light makes it a win-win as your student gets some quality reading time in, without disturbing his or her neighbor.

DormCo proves essentials really can be fun!

The multi-plug outlet is good for charging or plugging in a lot of things, in a little space. I know we have enough trouble finding plugs for everything in a regular house, imagine how much harder it would be in a small space!

I love that arrow magnet. It's heavy-duty strong too.

The screen cleaner pictured above comes with a soft cloth too, for wiping down those electronic devices. And it's hard to tell, but the red target just above it is a strong magnet (and the clear attachment is an arrow). Such a fun way to hang up those daily reminders.

The bunk pocket wraps around any dorm bed post and keeps essentials (like the smartphone) close at hand.

And speaking of reminders, this college kit also came with a whole lot of sticky notes to help keep your important notes front and center. To the left of those is a cool bunk pocket. It wraps easily around any bunk post, allowing important essentials (like the smartphone) to be kept close at hand.

Those are just some of the items highlighted that are in the pack. You can get a complete list of everything included by visiting the link to The Dean's List (Study Necessities) College Gift Pack on the DormCo website.


Don't forget, this is just one of 12 college kits available. Each kit has its own theme (like Lather Up or Easily Forgotten Essentials), and is sure to be a hit with any and all college students. Learn more about each of the 12 Days of College Kits by visiting here, or you can take a look at the video Dorm Co has put together (above).

Whether you're buying for a high school graduate, or a college atendee, any one of these kits is going to bring a bit of happy to your favorite student.

You can learn more about these kits, and many other great items all geared towards the college life, by visiting the DormCo website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

College kits are a great idea. I need to look into this for my son.

Now those are some great looking supplies, getting the stationary together used to be my favourite part of going back to school ;)

Dogvills said...

I have a niece who's off to college by the end of the month. I am helping out my sister prepare the things she would need. I will check DormCo.

WildlyAware said...

This is such a great idea. I'll keep this in mind for when I send mine off. Amber N

I remember when my 2 Granddaughters went off to college. My daughter and I went nuts making sure both of them had everything they needed. This box is a great idea.

Mama to 5 said...

Those are definitely some amazing items that students need. My kids have many years before college but I so need to get my son one of these book lights, he likes to read in bed.

Amanda Ripsam said...

I sure would have loved to received a box full of stuff like this when I was in college.
I love this supply box idea.

Kristi Maloney said...

What a great ensemble of school supplies. My niece is heading off to college in Vermont next week. She would LOVE this!

ourfamilyworld said...

This would be a nice going away present for those who are off to college. My niece is off to college. She would appreciate this.

Patrice Foster said...

Great ideas and sturdy box with lots of needed supplies for any college students.

Ashleigh Thomas said...

This is a great thing. Thank you for sharing.

James Robert said...

Wow, what a great package to help a student out and the supplies would be so helpful

Boulder Locavore said...

This is a perfectly timed post. We have some of this coming in our near future. I have not heard of this company and am bookmarking this! Thank you!

JaimeLovesStuff said...

Now this is a great box for students heading off to college!

Kate K said...

Such a great idea! I wish there was around when I was heading off to college!

MELISASource said...

Oh wow how cool! Just what everyone needs for college -- and convenient too!

Joyce Lansky said...

We just graduated our youngest child from UCF. It's hard to believe are kids are all POST college. I feel old.

Lori Gunn said...

There's nothing like a care box to make the first week or so of college seem happier and friendlier. DormCo appears to know just what is needed to fill those last minute needs before class starts.

debdenny said...

Oh that is an awesome box. Spectacular items for school.

Pam said...

This post couldn't have come at a better time. My son just went off to college. He would love these packages like this.

Melanie QueMeansWhat said...

What a great idea! I need to bookmark this for when my niece graduates from high school next year. Thanks for the idea.

Theresa Mahoney said...

This is such a wonderful idea! It really takes the guess work out of sending a care package to your college student!

Ai Sakura said...

wow such a time-saver!! It is such a convenient service to get everything the kids need for college.

Esme Sy said...

Awesome stuff. I love that it has everything you need for notes, mostly. Because that's really something that you would have to do with enthusiasm when you're in college.

Ron Leyba said...

Hope that this kind of kit or boxes are available during my college days. Truly useful.

Janell Mares said...

This is awesome! It would have been great when I went to college!

Kristi said...

What a great idea! I love to send packages to nieces and nephews as they head off to college and this looks like a great way to do it.

Ave T said...

What an amazing service! I realy wish I would have received this kind of kits when I was off to college. So many useful things!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

This is so neat! I went to college halfway across the country from my home, and I remember how much it meant to get care packages in the mail.

Anne - Mommy Has to Work said...

I have a few years but what a great idea! How nice it would be to get a care package in the mail while far away from home.

Maria S. said...

I love the concept of this box. What college student wouldn't love to receive a box of goodies with all the stuff they are going to need in it? I know I would love something like this for my home office.

Katie Reed said...

My nephew is going off to college next month and this would be a great gift for him. I love how they thought of just about everything. This is a very cool box!

Ty Watson said...

My daughter started college today and I think I over-packed. I might buy this for her for the winter.

Jessica said...

I love this idea! It will be perfect for my oldest niece who is headed off to college in just a few short days! I love that there are 12 different ones to choose from too!

Stephanie Pass said...

Who doesn't love a care package full of stuff you can use and have fun with, too? I know I'll be sending care packages to my daughter when she's headed to college in a couple years.

Colette S said...

It's always good to be prepared!
I love school supplies, just wish someone would give me the budget :)

DeDa Studios said...

I agree - these make sure great gifts. I know a few new freshman this year that would love these to arrive!

alissa apel said...

That comes with a lot of great things. Some of that stuff I put in the boy's stockings at Christmas time. They always get tape and glue sticks. Last year Isaak got a stapler. As a teacher I could use all this stuff.

Ashleigh Walls said...

Now that is one subscription box that I can get behind! How genius, that would be wonderful to send.

Jennifer H. said...

I wish I would have had that when I went off to college! Great idea.

Rose-Marie said...

What a great idea -saves you the hassle of running around finding all these things. And it would be a nice gift for many ppl such as someone moving into their first apartment, etc., too!

~ Noelle said...

Heading over to see the site...
I know that I am not a college student, but this looks great for me too! :)
Seriously though, I know several people that this would be great for.

Krystal Butherus said...

This would have been really smart for me in college! It would also make a fun surprise gift too!
