Remember when back to school shopping just meant picking out the prettiest or funkiest notebooks? For many parents, it just got a lot more complicated as fresh high school graduates head off to their first semester at college or university. That means you’re not only shopping for pens – you’re shopping for dorm rooms too. While lots of flyers and catalogues show you colourful bean bag chairs, and shelving units, we won’t lie – those items wouldn’t fit into the dorm rooms we lived in. Those rooms are tiny. TINY.
So we’ve put together a little list of tiny items with big personality to spruce up a realistic dorm room.
As any avid Instagrammer will tell you, good lighting is key. And that might be sligthtly lacking dorms. These gnome lips are small, quirky and give off a little extra glow that kick those selfies up a notch.
Plain old notebooks are out – kids want to use their books to express their personality. With funky covers, high quality paper and sturdy construction, we love our selection of notebooks.
University can be overwhelming so help them keep calm and study on with stress relieving signage that’s on trend.
Like we mentioned, there’s not a ton of room for decor in dorms. Ipso facto, when you put your feet up on your bed, they might become a visual highlight. Funky socks in playful colours are an easy win.
