Kids heading off to college? You simply must check out the College Essentials from Babbleboxx, we found so many great items that our student loved!
Cue the sad music, my daughter heads back to college next week…yes next week! She’s beginning her third year and loves her school, but mom is struggling yet again with the distance. Her university is nearly 10 hours from home, no less in a remote location of northern Michigan. An area that gets pounded by Mother Nature beginning in October and lasting until nearly May. Her university has the distinction of being the “snowiest” university in the USA! Yes, beating out Alaska of all places.
With the distance being so great there aren’t many trips home for her or likewise us traveling to visit her. That’s why I’m sharing a few items that I recently received via Babbleboxx. Items which are wonderful for college students, let me breakdown what we received.
Viv & Lou: Throw Blanket
There’s nothing like the comfort of a plush throw, especially when you are far from home and in a frigid climate. This throw is absolutely perfect for curling up under and reading a book in your dorm room. 100% polyester (easy laundering), monogram or personalization is free upon ordering. Personalized gifts are great for college students, dorm items can often get left in other areas of school.
Sour Punch Share Me!® Mini Bites
Snacks, college kids love them! Sour Punch Share Me!® Mini Bites are great for throwing into a backpack, and resealable making them perfect for sharing. Just the right amount of sour, the taste is fantastic.
Luden’s Throat Drop
What do college kids do a lot of when sitting around socializing? They TALK & they TALK & they TALK! That’s when a Luden’s Throat Drop comes in hand. Perfect for mild throat irritation (from being talkative), itchy or scratchy throats or after “yelling” too loud at the football game! Perfect for popping into your backpack and with flavors like Wild Cherry, Watermelon and Green Apple they are TASTY!

BIG AZ® Sandwiches
Food, what college student doesn’t love FOOD? Better yet convenient food! BIG AZ Sandwiches are just that, sold at convenience stores across the country. You can find them in the refrigerated section, a cooler or in a sandwich warmer. Delicious selections such as: BBQ Rack O Ribs, Sriracha Chicken or a Cheeseburger…BIG food, BIG flavor and also a BIGger value…can’t beat that.
Casio A168WG-9VT Vintage Watch
They all things vintage come back in style again, right? Take the Casio Vintage Collection…timeless, classic style that’s back in style for today. My daughter and her friend went nuts over this watch. With a 1/100th second stopwatch, water resistance, alarm and EL backlight this watch…fashion and function have collided in one great watch.
Available at Macy’s and ShopCasio
EZneeds is one stop shopping to stock up easily! Yes, I shopped online for products that get delivered right to my daughter. She has NO time to shop at school between being a full-time student and running her own business. Plus she’s in an area with very few stores. Ezneeds helped me fix that situation. NO membership is required, I easily found brand name items that she uses (as do her roommates)! Spend $50 and shipping is FREE, arriving within 1-3 days. EZneeds = everyday needs delivered!
So with that, my daughter is prepped and ready for another year of higher education. When mom can find items that make her life a little easier and comfortable that’s a MOM WIN in my book.
