If your high school graduate is heading off to college or out into the big wide world with a job then they are going to need a lot of practical things to help them get by.

It seems college expenses are never ending, apart from college fees there are accommodation costs, furniture for dorm rooms, study books and travel costs at holiday times. It all adds up. Many students work through college to help with added expenses and day to day living, and parents usually help out by gifting monetary deposits or paying accommodation fees. Managing extra jobs and bank accounts are all part of the growing up responsibilities of leaving home to go to college or your first job. However, it shouldn’t all be hard work and students need to relax sometimes so a great gift from parents is a VISA card or an America Express card that can be used for some treats such as weekend trips away or some new tech gadgets. Having parents guarantee a credit card takes some off the financial pressure off getting through college.

Great gifts for children flying the nest are basic household items like linen ware, kitchenware, cooking utensils and dinner plates. Furniture such as sofas, beds and larger white goods such as fridges and laundry machines may also be needed if not supplied with accommodation. You can get some good refurbished items from specialist stores at reasonable prices, just make sure they have an electrical certificate to say they have passed safety testing and have been termite tested.

Clothes and gadgets are great student gifts too, college sweatshirts and scarves, gift cards for itunes music and movie downloads and even Iphones and netbooks are sure to make their college experience more enjoyable and rewarding. You could offer to pay for some study books or give them a fuel card for their car, which would give them a few extra funds to spend on some luxuries, and most welcome is a birthday card or Christmas card just loaded with good old cash!
