Dorm season has arrived. Because space is limited in dorm rooms, knowing what to pack and what to leave at home is crucial. Your teen will probably want to pack most of her belongings, so you may need to coach her on what should be left behind.
I think one of the best investments you can make is to buy great linens. Vera Bradley has rolled out some of the best looking bedding and accessories I have seen in a long time. I had a chance to check them out first hand.
The prints are not little girlish but stylish and fun. You may even buy a few things for yourself!
Every dorm starts with the perfect cover. This is the perfect Water-repellent polyester backed with quilted fleece. It is reasonably priced too! Those winter nights that she is missing home will be shortened by her soft bedding. I promise that .
Vera has designed a hanging organizer that I had a chance to checkout.
It’s easy to get the “hang” of looking good (and staying neat) with this accessory.
Lotions, powders and sprays all have a home here, thanks to the roomy, gusseted bottom pocket. It can also serve as a supply home too. The price runs from sale price of $33.60 to full pruce of $48.00. It is worth the coins.
#3 Desk Accessories that Are Grown Up But Fun
The 17 Month Large Agenda comes in stunning designs and colors that will be fun to look at and will not be confused with her roommates.
August 2017 through December 2018. Patterned hard cover. Colored metal spiral binding. Elastic band closure. Pocket in front. Plastic snap-in page keeper. Laminated tabs. Sticker sheet. Throw in the below sticky pad as an extra fun.
#4 The Ultimate Campus Bookbag
Come on face it. She may think she needs just a backpack, but go ahead and splurge on this one. Backpacks hold all of the essentials of college life. Forget a briefcase full of cash; your backpack is worth more with your small fortune of textbooks in there. Check the video below that I pulled for you below. I just love it and I will be getting one of my own! The designs are cool. When you see what you can put in it you will be in love too! Ideally your backpack will last for a year or more, and even in this modern world that seems to fear commitment, you should make sure to choose the best backpack for college that fits your academic needs.
Finally the one thing every girl needs ad doesn’t realize it until the end.
#5 The Shower Caddy
Shampoo, conditioner, loofah, body wash — carry it all in one trip with this pretty caddy. Your beauty routine just got easier. Laminate fabric trim. Mesh base for easy draining. Four exterior slip pockets.
You can get the above montage set. It is called ‘Campus Favorites’. These items will get her settled into campus life in no time! Includes a durable, water-repellent backpack for those rainy walks to class and a case for makeup or pens. There are two options for ID wrangling and a super cute (and functional) shower tote.
All the above are available for order from the Vera Bradley page here!
