The Ultimate List of Back to College Essentials

August 06, 2019

Whether you’re headed back to college, or you’re shopping for someone else, there are always back to school must-haves that every college kid should have at their disposal.

Stock up on all the back to college essentials with this list. 

School Supplies
Let’s get the boring stuff out of the way, shall we?

When headed back to school, make sure you’re prepared for your studies. There’s nothing worse than starting the year off on the wrong foot.

Notebooks, pencils, pens, paper, folders…stock up on all the essentials, so you’re prepared to get that A. 

A Reliable Laptop 
In today’s college environment, beyond the standard notebook and pen, having a reliable laptop is even more important.

Not only for easy notetaking, but also for typing up papers, research, and just general day-to-day college life. Almost everything is online!

It might be an investment now, but when you have a laptop that you can rely on to take you from class, to watching Netflix during your downtime, you’ll thank us.

Cookbooks 
We know cooking elaborate meals might not be high on your list of priorities, but if you’re not taking your health into consideration during the school year, you’ll pay for it later.

Chips, fast food, and grab-and-go granola bars sound like the typical college diet, but we highly recommend stocking up on reliable cookbooks full of super simple meals. In particular, look for cookbooks that focus on simple ingredients, meal prep ideas, and healthy recipes. 

Loungewear
With the amount of time you’re going to spend studying, you’ll want high-quality loungewear on hand. 

Because, trust us, while your favorite ripped tee you’ve had since highschool might sound good now, you’re probably not going to want to wear this to the library, let alone to an early morning class. 

Invest in loungewear that’s both comfortable and functional, but that also makes you feel put together. 

Self Care
And last, but definitely not least, we want to quickly touch on the importance of self care when it comes to college.

While the college years can certainly be a time of non-stop fun, studying, and stress, it’s extremely important that you take the time to take care of yourself.

This can include things like relaxing spa nights (candles, face masks, lotions, manicures, etc.), comforting reminders of home, reading your favorite books just for fun, warm tea, and even simple things like cozy blankets and soft pillows.

Take care of yourself (or your loved ones) during the college years with these college essentials, and you’ll likely have a much more positive experience.
