Back to School: College Dorm Essentials for Him

dorm essentials for him

Last week I shared with you some essentials for the college girls in your life.  I couldn't leave all the guys hanging.  We all know that some males just need some extra help in getting all the right things that are functional & stylish, so I thought I'd help the boys out too with my college dorm essentials for him list.  A big thanks to my cousin, Jake, who helped me come up with this list.  He is a recent college grad, so he had the scoop on all things that the guys would need.

All college students need a good quality backpack, a planner to keep track of their classes, due dates (& parties).  The gorgeous leather journal looks so rustic & manly that any guy would love to take notes in, along with my favorite pens. For his dorm--a mini fridge is a must, along with a coffee maker so he can stay caffeinated while he studies.  I love these plastic plates that look like paper plates. And you can't forget the mini blender for his after workout smoothies. Of course a heavy duty laundry bag for when he bring all his laundry home for you to do.  Good quality towels, shower caddy & skin care is a must have for all students.  The rolling storage cart is great to store food & kitchen utensils. Don't forget a good trash can!

Dorm Room Decor: A Modern Rustic Dorm

I love creating rooms for guys, I think manly because they all say they really don't care what their spaces look like, but when it's done right, they love it.  Here is my take on a well put together room for your college boy--clean & modern lines with the perfect amount of rustic touches. It's a pretty neutral palette and he can always change out his pillows to coordinate with his school colors or just his favorite colors.
