To take it one step further add an embossed monogram on it. This will make it super special and unique.

Britas not only make tap water clean and drinkable, but will also save so much money on water bottles.. and saving money in college is ALWAYS a good thing.

Almost every single college student has one of these backpacks. They are super durable and will most definitely last him all 4 years of college.

4. Waterproof Speaker

A speaker is always a great gift to give a boy if you want to make sure it gets used. Guys constantly have music playing and this speaker is waterproof so they can take it to the pool, beach, or shower!

This specific speaker has really good sound quality and is a lot less expensive than many other speakers.

5. AirPods Pros or Airpods

I have a pair of AirPods and my guy friends ALWAYS ask to borrow them when going to the gym. Students constantly wear these going to class and working out. They are a little more pricey but are totally worth it.

They can keep this gift for many years and will help them with moving into their apartment and future house!

A personalized key fob is a super sweet and unique high school graduation gift. There are tons you can buy with almost any college on it.

Really any nice belt will do but when I asked one of my guy friends he said he would have loved to receive a belt with his college on it for graduation. This would be a perfect addition to his game day outfit!

LED lights are every guy's favorite way to decorate. I promise if you don't buy these for him, he will buy them on his own.

This one from Etsy is really nice and you can customize it with his initials!

13. Tile Key Tracker

One thing all college students are good at is losing things. This little square will make sure you can find anything! It attaches to your keys and allows you to track it straight from your phone. It's pretty much a "Find My Friends" app for your keys.

14. Portable Safe

Dorms and college apartments usually don't have any type of safes in them. If he usually has cash or any expensive items he will probably want to store them in a safe place.

This safe is perfect for cash or small expensive items and can easily be kept in his room or car.

You can never have enough phone chargers! This pack comes three long cables which come in handy when a charging port is far from your bed!

A rain jacket is a perfect high school graduation gift for any boy. If your soon to be college student is going anywhere that rains frequently, this will be used a TON. This is a go-to clothing item you really can't go wrong buying for a boy.

Graduating high school and going to college means early mornings and late nights. Coffee will be his best friend. This will save him tons of money on going out to buy coffee and is a super thoughtful gift for him! 

23. Lululemon Sweatpants

Okay, so Lululemon is a little on the pricey side... BUT they are seriously the most comfortable sweatpants you can buy and are so durable they will last him forever. One or two pairs is really all he will need (let's be honest guys re-wear their clothes all the time). He will definitely appreciate this graduation gift.

If you don't want to spend a ton of money on clothing for him there are also tons of other sweatpants options that work as well! In general, sweatpants are a great gift.

24. Baseball Caps

I know for all my guy friends, hats are their best friend. Waking up without time to shower in college is common and a good baseball cap can save his bad hair day. Get him a few baseball caps for those days and he definitely will use them.

I think this is such a cool high school graduation gift for boys! If he plans on camping or traveling at all this is a super cool item to bring. Honestly keeping one of these in your car for a cold day is such a great idea.

32. White Running Shoes

Every single guy I know either wants a pair of these shoes or needs a new pair since white shoes get dirty fast. You can never have too many pairs of shoes and having a nice clean pair to go into college with will make him so happy!

18 Dorm Cleaning Supplies Every Single College Freshman Should Have

This post is all about dorm cleaning supplies.

Dorm Cleaning Supplies

I am a clean freak

There I said it (and tbh I am even a little proud of it haha). Moving into the dorms was tough for me because I like everything to be clean and organized but it's such a small space that it was much harder to do that than I expected. Because dorms are so small, they can get dirty sooo fast.

Good thing for you, I found my favorite dorm cleaning supplies that actually worked to keep my room clean. These are all such good items to keep in your dorm. 

This post is all about dorm cleaning supplies.

The 5 Essential Dorm Cleaning Supplies:

These next five products are things I used weekly to clean my dorm room. The ya-need-to-have products that I swear by!! The rest of this post is dorm cleaning supplies that would make life easier but you don't needddd them.

1. Small Vacuum

Dorm cleaning supplies would not be complete without one of these! I remember so many people asking to borrow my vacuum when I lived in my dorm.

This one is small and won't take up too much room which is essential in such a small space. I know that your dorm offers most likely offers you a vacuum, but those vacuums are usually ancient and don't work very well. 

2. Clorox Wipes

Clorox wipes can be used to wipe down basically any surface. I can't tell you how many of these I went through in my dorm. 

These are great for surfaces like your desk or tables that will get dusty super fast. Definitely recommend adding these to your dorm cleaning supplies list!

3. Febreeze

Febreeze is a dorm cleaning supplies staple. Okay, maybe it isn't technically cleaning supplies, but it will definitely keep your room smelling clean. 

4. Mrs. Meyers Everyday Cleaning Spray

This is one of my favorite dorm cleaning supplies. Mrs. Meyers cleaners come in a ton of different scents and are an all purpose cleaner. These are great for literally any surface in your dorm from sinks, countertops, desks, mirrors, etc. 

When I clean my dorm, I always start with this. I give everything a really good spray because your dorm room gets dusty fast.

5. Disinfectant Spray

I was a freakin' disinfecting queen when living in the dorm rooms. Sicknesses spread so fast and everything has germs on it.

I'd disinfect the door knobs, remotes, basically everything haha.

6. Febreze Trash Bags

I swear by Febreze trash bags all the time but especially when living in a dorm room. These really do such a GOOD job at masking the smell of whatever goes in your trashcan.

The Dorm Cleaning Supplies That'll Make Life Easier:

If you have community bathrooms than don't worry about getting anything for that!!

7. Swiffer

If you have tile or wood floors in your dorm, I would definitely recommend one of these. You would be surprised how much dirt you will sweep up with them. 

My floors got so dirty so fast, especially in the winter so I highly recommend this for your dorm cleaning supplies essentials. 

8. Shoe Deodorizers

Am I the only one that shoes start to smell really bad really fast? Like it's actually gross lol. 

I ordered these for my shoes and they work so well. Because dorms are small, shoes can stink up your room fast. Place these in your shoes to absorb the odor and keep your dorm room smelling good!

9. DampRid Dehumidifiers

I did't know about these until after a few weeks into living in my dorm. But boy they make a HUGE difference.

If you are living in an older dorm that gets humid, these are super helpful in keeping it less damp. Only a few weeks in to college and the bag was half full of water. Thank god I found these! 

10. Magic Erasers

These things really live up to their name. They literally get anything up, even permanent markers!

These are also great for getting scuffs off walls. Seriously one of my favorite dorm cleaning supplies I still use all the time. 

dorm room essentials

11. Broom And Dustpan

A broom and dustpan is pretty self explanatory. You don't want to forget one of these if you have any hardwood or tile floors in your dorm! 

12. Toilet Bowl Cleaner

If you don't use communal bathrooms that get cleaned by someone else, definitely keep one of these in your dorm bathroom if you don't have toilet cleaning tablets, as well as a toilet bowl scrubber. 

13. Windex

Windex is a staple dorm cleaning supply. It is a multipurpose cleaner so you can reduce the number of cleaning sprays you will have to buy and use it for many different surfaces. 

14. Scrub Daddy

These scrubbers are literally MAGIC. They become softer or harder based on water temperature and clean up so well.

Definitely recommend keeping a couple of these in your dorm cleaning supplies stash.

15. Plunger And Scrubber

No one wants to have to ask to borrow a plunger (embarassingggg). This set is perfect to keep in your dorm bathroom so you can keep everything clean and fresh. 

16. Cleaning Bowl Tablets

To be honest, no one wants to clean a toilet. Especially not college students (we're pretty lazy). If you know they are likely not to clean their toilet, this is a perfect option.

17. Fabric Freshener Spray

Dorms can get musty and make clothes and bedding smell gross. Fabric freshener is perfect to keep around and spray on your comforter or in your closet to keep your room smelling fresh.

18. All Purpose Scrubber

These come in super handy if you have a shower in your dorm. They are touch on gross dirt in the shower and will make cleaning it so much easier.

This post gives you 18 dorm cleaning supplies.
