Portable HandHeld Scanners

A portable wand scanner is a great time saver. She can scan all the documents needed for a research paper and bring it back to her dorm to work on later as time permits. This will save her from staying late at the library at night. The magic wand portable scanner by Vupoint is one of the best rated. It conveniently captures images, documents, and magazine articles with a simple pass and stores in a micro SD card.

Cute School Tote Bags For College

A large or extra large tote will fit clothes and other essentials when she goes out on college trips. Choose a machine washable bag so its easy for her to care for.

The Vera Bradley tote shown here has many bright and beautiful colors and prints to choose from. It is one of the best rated bags. There are three interior pockets to hold makeup or writing tools and the drop length of the straps is 12 inches.

Amazon Kindle HDX 8.9" Tablet

With the free Skype video calls with front-facing HD camera, she can call home anytime and share her adventures from wherever she is.

She can also stream movies and wirelessly share with her roommates on a big screen TV.

Portable Clothes Steamer

Since she will not have time to iron her clothes often, this hand-held steamer will be very handy. It easily removes wrinkles and creases even on fine delicate clothing. Just fill with water and use. It heats up in just one minute and you get 15 minutes of steam time before refilling. Its made in USA.

Available in pink as well.

Hanging Jewelry Organizer

By now I know her collection of jewelry will have increased. Jewelry organizers hanging from door or in a closet will keep her collection in one place. This holder has 39 see through pockets on one side for rings and earrings and the back side has 24 tabs with hook-and-loop closures to accommodate various lengths of necklaces.
