It’s reader question time again!  Strap on your thinking caps, ladies and gents, and see if you can help our reader Victoria who has a question about gift ideas for her friend who is heading off to school.  (This is a pertinent question with graduation open house season looming on the horizon!)  She writes:

My best friend is transferring from a community college to a 4-year University in the fall and she will be living on campus for the first time. I’d like to make her a cute gift for her before she moves into her dorm in August. Do you have any ideas?

What kind of gifts do you think are best for students who will be living in dorms?  When you were headed off to college, what handmade gifts would you have found the most thoughtful or useful?  Share your ideas in the comments!
