Hey Lovelies, now that it is close to labor day, it is already time to start thinking about going back to school! As a college student, we loved getting baskets and packed boxes from my parents. Today, we’ll show you a lovely college send-off basket to give your college student as they get ready to journey to college that is filled with all sort of essentials. Decked out in all blue, stripes and anchors, this is such a fun basket that is perfect for sending your student sailing away to college.
We went with an all blue theme and above are all of the goodies in the send-off basket. Luckily all of these things are under $10! Many of these items are found by the checkout area so be sure to hit up that section.
