Sometimes when kids graduate and go off to college, they end up hundreds of miles away. On their birthday, this poses a problem for loved ones who want them to know they are thinking of them on their special day. There are many different ways to show a college student they are being thought of on their day of birth without traveling to where they are.
Sending something in the mail is, perhaps, the easiest method for getting a gift to them. Since a majority of college students are living on meager income, sending a gift card is a great gift that will definitely come in handy. Some gift cards to consider include grocery, gas, and prepaid gift cards. The college student will be thankful for the gift and happy to be remembered on their special day even when so far from home.
Another great gift idea for college students living out of state, is to send them birthday in a box. This a creative alternative to throwing them a party since they are so far away. For the celebration box, pack in streamers, confetti, and any other decoration you can think of. Then, pack something like brownies or cookies that will endure the travel through the mail system. When the college student gets the box, they will be delighted to get such a wonderful surprise.
For those individuals lacking creativity, a great gift idea is to hire out a local company’s assistance in delivering a gift. Many of these delivering companies can be found online through a simple search and they can deliver a variety of products. Some of the more favorable deliveries include specialty chocolate, flowers, fruit arrangements, and assorted baskets. Many of these companies can include a card for personalized messages to be attached to the gift.
Buying a college student tickets to their favorite concert is another great gift idea. Simply look up shows coming to the city where they are living, purchase the tickets online, and have them shipped to the student. One of the great things about this gift option is many different bands and artists come through college towns giving the buyer a wide variety to choose from.
If all else fails, sending a college student a card on their special day is also a good alternative. Purchasing a card that is sure to get a laugh is always an excellent idea. Or, for a more sentimental approach, make a home made card from scratch.
When a college student is far from home, sometimes getting a birthday present is just the thing they need to make them feel more comfortable in their new environment. Just because they are not home doesn’t mean they aren’t missing it on their special day. Bring a little bit of sunshine to their birthday by showing them just how much they are being thought of.
‘Birthdays’ are an important day for the birthday person. Sometimes it is more than just a birthday because it turns into a huge family gathering and everyone is having a great time.
