    I think it’s funny that we are headed right back to large headphones. NOt only does history repeat itself, fashion does, too!

      Yes it does. I have to laugh sometimes

    I have a few of Nick Vujicic’s and they are all so wonderful. You also can’t go wrong with a nice variety of post-its!

    These are great gift ideas. I love the larger headphones over the small earbuds myself.

    What teenager doesn’t love post its? I always like locker decor of any kind too- especially the kind that deodorizes! Ha!

    Great, great list… I love the assortment. I remember collecting those post-its and using them ALL the time… Thanks so much for sharing.

    I could totally use all of these things for myself and it has been a long time since I have been a freshman. In addition to this, as a Freshman in college, I would say laundry detergent and lots of quarters! :)

    Lots of Kleenex and vitamins for college freshman. I only remember how sick I was that first year being exposed to new germs from other geographic areas and poor air circulation. I still managed to have the time of my life!

    We are a few years away from the freshman world, but these look like great ideas, some even for now! We always need headphones! And I am sure the book would be a great lesson for my son, and all of us. We talk about bullying all the time and how to support friends that are bullied (my son is kind of large so he is usually left alone in that regard).
    thanks,
    Mitch

    I think these are perfect for a college freshman! The post it notes are a great idea. I used so many in my college days.

    I knew that if people had to endure those uncomfortable ear buds long enough, they’d come back around to large headphones. I have a pair of large headphones that have sound dampening built in. They’re awesome. Even without any sound playing I can’t hear ANYTHING going on around me. And you know… that’s just nice sometimes.

    Great ideas! Especially the Norton… software can get soo expensive.

    Pens, paper, and highlighters are a must buy for freshmen. Pens seem to get lost so quickly!

    Love the headphones being a gift for those around your freshman! The gift with multiple purposes, haha. I would love the Post-it notes for myself. I don’t have anyone near freshman age, but I am sure most of these are timeless. I’ll put them in my back pocket.

    What a great post.. my Son is starting College this year so these tips and products came in perfect timing; thanks for sharing, the sticky notes are a MUSt have, that’s for sure

    Those are great picks! I still need to pick up the school supplies for my kids. Nothing like waiting til the last minute!!

    I’m digging this Norton 360 Multi-Device. A lot of people don’t realize that smartphones and tablets can be invaded by viruses just like a computer.

    Yes, Norton 360 is so important to protect those devices!! We have been using it for over 8 years ourselves!

    I received a ton of school supplies before college. I also loved getting organizational stuff to store stuff in my small dorm!

    I love post it notes and think everyone needs them. I’ve been seeing more and more of the big headphones lately.

    I think the headphones are a really good idea. Not only for the occasional school purpose, but also because many kids use them on buses!

    I went through post its like crazy when I was in school, I even made a calendar out of them! These are great ideas!

    What great choices! I started using mechanical pencils in our homeschooling last year and now my kids do not want to use anything else!

    Great post! My oldest is going into grade 6 but this is helpful because he could use most of it too!

    My daughter was a freshman last year. I got her a laptop and it’s been very helpful with her school projects.

    An Anti virus is a great idea for a freshman gift or anyone for that matter!

    wait, BIC makes kids pens now? That is just awesome!! I’m going to have to go looking for those!

    You can never have enough pens — or highlighters! And headphones are a definitely plus for studying in the library. :)

    That books sounds like a great book. I wish we could protect our kids forever from the world.

    I love homemade cookies and reminders from home. I definitely needed some comfort when I was away that first year

    Those are some great picks. I especially like the headphones, and the BIC supplies.

    These are some perfect Back-to-School items for freshman (and other classes too). I always loved having everything that I needed.

    I think that the Norton anti-virus is a great gift! Nothing is worse than having your PC crash in college!
