Heading off to college is one of the most exciting times in life, and as you start packing we thought we would share a short checklist that will make your humble space feel just like home.

Monogrammed Bed & Bath Linens

Not only does the oversized applique mark your side of the room, it also brightens and personalizes the most basic XL Twin Mattress bedding inexpensively. Also, a great way to identify your white towel in the hall bath or laundry room!

Shower Wrap

Now that you're sharing a space, it is always handy to have a wrap or robe to lounge in while you get ready. Retire the oversized tee or tower wrapped around you for something more sophisticated. You'll thank us while blow-drying your hair in the Southern humidity.

Tervis Tumbler

Splurge on the Large with a lid and straw. You can even customize with your initials and college logo! These are a classic college staple on any Southern campus.

Shower Caddy & Flip Flops

Do not even think about leaving home without this hall bath necessity. It will keep your essentials organized and your pink pedicured feet clean.

Cozy Throw

This understated item quickly becomes a security blank and will go with you just about everywhere – from the cold library to the dorm lounge for movie night. Fold it neatly and let it decorate the foot of your bed.

Bulletin Boards Filled With Photos

Cover up that corkboard in style. Make one yourself by wrapping a classic bulletin board in a fabric from the local fabric by the yard shop. It will quickly fill up with new memories and memorabilia, but in the interim tack pictures of your family, high school friends, and favorite four legged friend.
