The big yellow buses are transporting our children over hill and dale to learn the most they can.
For some of us Modern Men – our kids are beyond the yellow bus and currently in college. Or we have friends. Or cousins. Or amazing nieces!!! (Psst, my niece is amazing!)
I spoke with our friends over at ThinkGeek about some ideas for sending in a care package to someone freshly back (or there for the first time) at college and they sent some amazing stuff!
[Transparency: ThinkGeek sent these items for us to review at no cost, however we are free to state our own opinions.]
So, what showed up at my house that would be perfect for you to send to your college-aged folk? Let’s take a look!
The Doctor Who Fan in Your Life
No college dorm room is complete without a great blanket throw on the bed. Perfect for cozying up while cramming for exams, covering the bed when it’s a mess or putting over your head when you’re skipping math. (P.S. don’t skip Math. It’s not a good idea).
For the Whovian – this Tardis throw is amazing. Not only does it look cool and is cozy – but right now it’s 73% OFF! It was $29.99 but you can ship this off to college for only $7.99! Order Yours by Clicking Here!
How about the Potterheads?
When I was in college, the cool stuff on your walls was always important to social status! I rocked the full-sized framed Lion King movie poster. Awww yeah!
ThinkGeek has some VERY cool wall signs for the Harry Potter fans out there. Made of die-cut wood, and almost a foot tall, this sign is PERFECT to add a little fun to their dorm room. And, yeah, it’s on sale now too! Click Here to Orders Yours!
Newly 21? Be the Bartender for your Friends!
The Mixology Cocktail Shaker at ThinkGeek makes it SO easy for you to make all the favorites. Martini, Cosmo, Daiquiris – and more. Eight different drinks!
Pair it up with cool glasses and you’re sure to be voted entertainer of the off-campus apartment complex.
For Making The BIG Decisions!
We all love the Magic 8-ball. We played with them all the time when we were kids. What do we need now? A GIANT Magic 8-ball! For those in college – perfect for settling those pesky roommate disagreements.
This thing is 10″ in diameter – a little bigger than a regulation sized basketball! It looks COOL on a desk or filing cabinet. And does it work? Let me check…. Signs point to YES!
