5 Ways To Set College Students Up For Success

Gifts For College Success

Sending college students off to school can be a little overwhelming. They’re ready to spread their wings, and we want to make sure they’re prepared when they do. To let college students know how much you care for them, and help set them up for success, send a gift that also meets their needs while they’re away. The designers at Bagoy’s Florist & Home have created a list of items you can send or bring to your college student to show how much you’re thinking of them. 



Flowers, Plants, and Gifts Show That You Care

Thoughtful Encouragement 

More than anything else, students need to know you’re thinking about them, you miss them, and you believe in them. A floral arrangement or gorgeous plant to dress up their dorm room and brighten their first day of class is the perfect way to set them up for success. Remind them that you’re behind them all the way with a long-distance Bear Hug. This adorable design of fresh-cut yellow roses, pink gerbera daisies, and blue iris arrives with a cuddly teddy bear attached to the bunch vase.





Add fun color to dorm life with our Citrus Pop design. A desk-friendly cube vase is filled with bright yellow lilies, orange and pink gerbera daisies, and gorgeous yellow roses for a fantastic first-week celebration!





Since our Green Pathos perform beautifully in low light, this fresh green plant is the perfect addition to your student’s dorm room. Add a bit of nature and fresh energy with a living plant. This one arrives in a rustic clay pot with a raffia ribbon for a totally natural look.





What student wouldn’t love a care package full of fun candy to keep the momentum going all semester long? Our delicious Gourmet Chocolates and Candies are perfect study-break noshes.

Get Them Gear

Microwave/ accessories While microwaves let students eat quickly with relatively little mess, sometimes the food is not the same as a home-cooked meal. Send microwave accessories that help your student make scrambled eggs, bacon, or even s’mores right in their dorm room. 

Noise-cancelling headphones Sometimes on a college campus it can be difficult to find some peace and quiet. With noise-cancelling headphones, your student can easily block out the sounds around them and focus on their studies.

Comfy linens/new towels Even though they brought the essentials with them, a soft blanket, homemade pillow or even a sweet plush toy to make their bed a little cosier is always a welcomed treat. 

Coffeemaker While a stop at the local barista on the way to class is tempting, it can also become a costly habit. Encourage your student to make their own coffee with a coffeemaker and fun accessories like mugs, syrups and flavored creamers.


Your student is ready to step out into the world, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need a bit of encouragement from time to time. Let your college student know how much you love and support them when you send a special treat.
