Back-To-School Gift Ideas For College Students

What To Send College Students

Leaving home and heading off to college is a big experience. Students are excited to spread their wings. Parents and family members, however, can often be nervous that students may not have everything they need. That’s why the design experts at Marco Island Florist created a list of great back-to-school gift ideas. You can send some of these to your Hodges University or Ave Maria School of Law student in the first week of school or throughout the semester. They may not even realize how much they needed some of these items.


Tropical Flower Marco Island

Gifts That Show Love

Make sure your student knows how much you miss them while they’re away. Send something extra special to brighten their day. A beautiful floral arrangement, a fresh plant design or a tasty treat basket will go a long way in reminding them that they are loved and missed. Show how proud you are with an extra special surprise.



Greet them with a Tropical Breeze during their first week of school and celebrate their new season of life. This design features orange lilies, mokara orchids, green Kermit button poms, and birds of paradise in a warm, inviting dish that will look great on your student’s dorm room desk.

Vibrant tropical arrangement - medium sized



A bubble bowl filled with tropical flowers is as invited as Waikiki itself! Help your student escape to the tropics when school gets stressful with this design of orange lilies, birds of paradise, yellow roses and purple dendrobium orchids accented with curly willow.




Orchid plant in classic glass cube


Our gorgeous Orchid Plant is as gorgeous and complex as it is serene and elegant. This beauty will add a peaceful vibe to your student’s dorm room or apartment. Arriving in a tall cube vase and accented with river rocks and moss, this design is long-lasting and inspiring.




Fruit Basket Delivery

Feed your student’s drive with a Traditional Fruit Basket and watch them soar to the top of the class. Nourish them to show your support as they work hard all semester long.

Great Gifts

Gift Cards On such a tight college budget, students will be happy to see gift cards to their local gas station, grocery store and especially their favorite restaurant or boutique. Add a gift card into a “Thinking of You” greeting card once in a while to remind them that you’re still there for them.

Noise-Cancelling Headphones Trying to study on a busy college campus can be challenging. With noise-cancelling headphones, your student can block it all out and stay focused. Help them succeed no matter where they are.

TV Streaming Device Don’t let them miss class just because their favorite TV show is on! Make sure they can watch what they want when they want with a TV streaming device.

Tablet/Accessories Lugging around a heavy laptop can be cumbersome. With a tablet, students can get all of the information they need while on the go. Include accessories like a protective case, portable keyboard and headphones to make their experience that much more convenient.


Students just need to know that as they head off to college, you are thinking of them and still glad to take care of them sometimes. A much-needed-gift will remind them that you are always there for them. For more great college back-to-school gift ideas, talk to the designers at Marco Island Florist.
