Back-To-School Gifts: 5 Things They Don’t Know They Need

Perfect Presents to Surprise a New Student With

It’s just about time for college students, including our very own University of North Carolina Wilmington students, to head off to college for the fall semester. This is an exciting time where they spread their wings and start to become who they want to be. A great way to show your enthusiasm and encouragement for these days is with a pragmatic gift that shows them you’re thinking about them. Think about what they could use, what they might need or anything special that will show that you care. With this in mind, the designers at Julia’s Florist have compiled a list of some items college students may not even realize they need until you send it.

Seaside Blooms of yellow, blue, and green in modern square shaped vase

Gorgeous Gifts To Show You Care

A Fun Surprise Delivery Sometimes students just need to know you’re there. Send a beautiful bouquet of flowers or a lush, long-lasting plant the first week of school. Or, make their first week one to remember with a fun gift basket!


Gorgeous Seaside Blooms bring color and warmth into the dorm room setting. Brighten their space with fresh blue hydrangea, yellow roses, pale green carnations and solidago for accents. Presented in a compact glass cube vase, this piece will look perfect on any dorm room desk.


Gorgeous yellow and orange bouquet of roses and sunflowers in bubbly glass vase



Our chic Cottage Garden diplay features bright sunflowers, orange spray roses, and lush green stock is presented in a clear glass bubble bowl for ultimate style. Add bright colors and a fresh English garden look to your student’s freshman dorm room.

Snack gift basket stuffed with candy and topped with ribbon bow



Our UNCW Study Box is exactly what they’re craving! Send him a gourmet gift basket full of his favorite treats and keep him going strong all semester long.

Useful Items

Coffee Maker Give them the option to skip the expensive coffee shop on the way to class. Help them make their own in the comfort of their own dorm room. A small coffee maker along with accessories like flavored creamers, syrups and a traveling mug for class will be a great way to kick each day off right.

Desk Organizer  Staying organized is the key to success anywhere you go, but especially in a college dorm room. A desk organizer for the top of their desk or for inside their drawers will mean so much. They’ll save time and energy because they can find everything they need.

Safe Secure important documents, sensitive items and even some emergency cash. A sturdy safe that fits under the bed or in the closet without taking up too much space can help immensely. This way, students can be sure that personal items are secure.

Portable Chargers College students these days are on the go and so are their electronics. Make sure that they have the power they need to keep working all day long. Gift them with a portable charger for their computer, tablet or cell phone.


Make sure your student knows they mean the world to you. Fill them with confidence and encouragement when you send a gift the first week of school. Let them know you’re thinking of them.
