There are only a few weeks until summer vacation ends for a lot of folks out there. That means it’s just about time to get your college student some dorm room supplies. Bedsheets, toiletries and clothes–you can remember them as clearly as the day you moved to college. While most of us know exactly what they might need, it’s not easy to remember things beyond the basics.

Your college student deserves a well-equipped desk
Not having a place for pens, highlighters and stationery items can send your kid on a wild goose chase every time they need to jot down some reminders quickly. Having this minimalist desktop organizer can avoid these frustrating situations. Its four compartments make space for everything they may need. The tall ones sit at the back and can house writing tools, scissors or a ruler. The short ones can hold handy items, such as a stapler, small writing pads and even earphones. Your student also has the option to divide the compartments and put them wherever is most convenient for them.
When you attended college, what’s one of the most common things that can send you into a panic? Missing research papers and homework! Encourage your young adult to keep their important documents organized by giving them this three-in-one file organizer from Blue Monaco. It works as a rack, sorter and drawer, letting them place papers and books vertically, horizontally or hidden from view. You can also find four compartments inside the drawer for other essentials. This metal and mesh desk rack not only adds functionality but also elevates the look of the desk.
Even if some universities are pushing for digital textbooks, your child will still need a nook for their books. This wooden, non-toxic book rack will keep these reading materials safe. Its small surfaces are ideal for displaying items, such as small plants, an alarm clock and framed photos, adding even more functionality to this book rack. Putting this rack together is simple, and you can adjust the gap between surfaces according to your college student's needs.
For a college student who prefers to have everything in one place, this stylish nine-compartment acrylic desk organizer set is the answer. It boasts plenty of space for books, notebooks and other office supplies. The best part? It'll always stay in place other than when your child moves it around thanks to its rubber grips underneath. Unlike the other organizers on this list, this one doesn’t need to be assembled.
Mesh organizers are simple and easy to use. You can see everything in the open. If your kid prefers this type of desk caddy, get this one from Greenco to keep their study corner clutter-free. Made of lightweight metal, it’s easy to move around but not quickly broken. It has five sections for tools and supplies and an extra drawer for post-its and other small office supplies.
