4 unique dorm gifts for your new college kid
By Aimee Heckel
Just because you got your kid through public school doesn’t mean you’re completely done with back-to-school shopping — not yet.
If you have a new college kid headed off to start a big kid life in the dorms, you can still send him or her off with a little parental support. Here are four unique but totally practical dorm gifts you can give your new college kid, all available at Gifts.com.
1. A funky power strip. I bet you never thought you’d heard those words put together. Power strips can be pretty cool — or at least this one is ($33.99). It’s cute enough to be dorm decor, but completely functional and necessary, in the modern age of technology that can’t seem to hold a charge for more than a half the day.
2. Recycled record book ends, $40. Vintage, recycled and practical. These book ends are handmade, unique and environmentally friendly. People do still read paper books nowadays, right? Just like they still listen to records? If not, they’re still a cute shelf decoration.

3. Funky Batman-themed USB drives. Consider these modern school supplies. For $29.99, get your own comic flash drive. Or the Joker, if that’s your style. Get free shipping on Gifts.com items $50 and up. These Mimobot Designer drives come with a memory from 2 gigabytes up to 64, both Mac and PC compatible. These drives even come with a one-year warranty.
4. A hot pink wiener dog lamp. Of course. This is equally as funky as it is useful. This $79 MyPetLamp from Offi provides a soft light, perfect for a study lamp on a desk. If pink is not your kid’s style, this Dachshund also comes in yellow, white, orange, blue and green. This lamp is a great room accent for a dog lover. Or a lamp lover. If that’s a thing.
