It's time. You're ready. You're child is ready. Wait, maybe you're not ready? But, it's time for college! After all the school supplies are bought, new clothes are packed and all the decorations are done, there is still that special send off moment.

Every parent wants to give their child something special at that moment and today, we would like to show you a special and practical gift that will not break the bank.

Most of us had a rude awakening when we went off to college or moved out on our own, we realized our parents did a lot for us. We also realized our parents bought a lot for us. It's about this time we figured out we needed things like Lysol Wipes, Hefty Sandwich Bags, Duracell Batteries, etc. We finally realized those items don't magically appear when you leave for school, now, as we graduate into adulthood, we have to purchase them ourselves.

That's where the basket of essentials is the perfect gift. Simply pick up a laundry basket (your student will need one of those too), fill the bottom with new towels, a favorite blanket, anything of that sort. Then, fill the basket will essentials your student likely missed. Here are a few ideas:

  • Cleaning Products
  • Kitchen Towels
  • Kitchen Utensils
  • Cutting Board
  • Trash Bags
  • Sandwich Bags
  • Sponges
  • Dish Soap
  • Hangers
  • Toilet Paper
  • Paper Towels
  • Surge Protector
  • Flashlights
  • Batteries
  • Laundry Supplies
  • Small Tool Kit
  • First Aid Kit

All of these must-haves are easily forgotten in the back-to-school rush. The best part? You can personalize this as well by tucking in a special gift right in the middle or even an envelope with a few extra dollars and a note.

Pick up a laundry basket and the next time you're at Food Lion, load up on these essential ideas to give your child a fun and memorable send off!
