DIY Back to College Gift Basket

As college students are getting ready to head back to campus after the long summer break send them back to school with this easy DIY College Gift Basket packed full of some of their favorite things from home.

When I asked my college student what she or her friends might like to get in a college gift basket she told me all her friends ever talked about was how much they missed their family, their pets and family recipes.


  • a plastic storage crate, laundry basket or organizer cubes
  • a TGIF gift card from Gift Card Mall so your college student can enjoy dinner out
