My son leaves for university the week before his 19th birthday. I am looking to put together a bag full of useful / fun gifts for him to open on the day.

I’m planning gift cards for those little luxuries, but does anyone have any other ideas please?

Many thanks..

We got my son a big jar of Nutella, some shot glasses from Dunelm and Jenga. Also a door wedge if you haven't got one already. Nice to keep his door open to be sociable when settling in

I did my daughter a survival kit of little luxuries, including chocolate, biscuits, sweets, hot chocolate sachets, some pot noodles/mug shots. I can’t remember what else I put in as it was some years ago now but the thought behind it was that she’d have some quick easy snacks for when she was skint/didn’t have time to cook plus some luxury items that wouldn’t be in her student budget. She’s not a big drinker so I didn’t bother with any alcohol stuff though

A student cookbook with quick easy meals - I had a great 20 min meals book when I went. How to do cheese on toast and everything!
