  1. It’s back-to school time, which means you might be thinking about giving a gift to that special college student or alum in your life. Give them the perfect present with this College Freshman’s Survival Kit! This kit includes all of their basic needs for starting out at university such as: toothpaste/brush; pad of paper and pencil set (with eraser); note pads if they need more than just one page each day – these can also double up nicely when there isn’t space left on any other surface around campus; notebooks made from recycled materials so they don’t have plastic getting stuck inside old cracks like us poor folks do every year after finals
