Going off to college is a big step for young adults, and you can help make it fun and stylish with a thoughtful present.
Lindsay Roberts, the founder of The Gift Insider, shows us some of her favorite picks:
Bespoke Post, Box of Awesome
Bespoke Post is a monthly box-of-cool-stuff for guys. From cocktail sets to high-end shaving kits, the Box of Awesome delivers an upscale monthly theme of gifts. $45 a box, but retail cost of items is much higher. You sign up & on 1st of the month you receive an email description of that month's box. If not interested in that month's selection, opt-out at no charge & wait for following month, love that part. 1, 3 or 6 month options.
Acoustic iPhone Gramophone Horn
We love the mix of old contrasting the new. This speaker is from an Etsy artist originally from Detroit and uses a vintage gramophone horn, requires no cords or batteries, is completely acoustic. Amazing conversation piece.
Rifle Paper and Co Stationary
I love the vintage heirloom charm of Rifle Paper Co. it's definitely one of our favorite stationery lines right now. Pretty "To Do" notepad. 85 tear-off sheets of natural white paper.
Pencils with Attitude
These are big new trend, pencils with fun sayings imprinted. We love these white "You're A Gem." pencils.
Vintage Polaroid Camera
A classic, brought back. This Polaroid camera was out of production in 2008, because the film was discontinued, well it's back! The Impossible Project had bought all the film with hopes of keeping instant photography alive & alive it is. Includes vintage camera & 2 packs of film. ~$150
Cheeky Storage Boxes
Love these boxes from Knock Knock. My faves are "More Crap" & "Stuff I want to hide from Nosy People" Inexpensive way to add some fun & humor to organizational musts. $8
Plug your iPhone into the iRetrofone steampunk and you have a classic functional handset. You can shoulder hug the handset and even twirl the corded handset while chatting away.iRetrofone is hand-cast from heavy duty urethane resin creating a stable, functional work station compatible with iPhone 5.
