10 Gift Ideas from College Students to Parents

It is always important to give back to the people most important to you. Every time I come home to visit my parents, I always bring back something from the college campus bookstore or I put together something quick and creative. I came across a great article from U.S News, which listed 10 gift ideas that are very creative and personalized. The gifts on the list are inexpensive, which is great if you’re on a budget. My favorite on this list is a “day off from cooking dinner” but all of these gift ideas are very heartfelt. They will surely put a gigantic smile on your parents’ faces.

Take a peek at some of my favorite ideas and check out the article to find even more!

1. Passage-of-time picture: Take and frame a picture of yourself as a college student alongside your baby picture. Also include a personal note of thanks.

2. Day off from cooking dinner: Treat your parents to a night where you do the cooking and cleaning up.

3. Dinner gift certificate: Know your parents’ favorite restaurant? Give them a gift certificate so they can spend a romantic night out together.

Need more convincing? Check out the rest of list here.

If you have any other gift ideas that are creative, inexpensive, and personable, share them with us!
