Top Back To College Picks #Backtoschool #giftidea

Howdy, all! I hope that you are having a fine day. Today I thought I would put together some of my favorite back to college picks this year. I have seen many products and tested/reviewed some but these would have to be my favorite when it come to function and all-around style. 


BeFunky Design

When it comes to function and style BUILT NY takes the cake with their perfect Neoprene bags. Yup. I said Neoprene. I was honestly not sure how I would like these bags, but I love how durable they are, and all the BUILT NY bags has a function. Such as their lunch bag and Market tote. These are the perfect gift for anyone going back to college or just to treat yourself.

Because these are made with Neoprene, it gives them the perfect stretch to make sure that everything can fit into the bag. 

Gift Idea.
I would use on of the BUILT NY bags and fill it with some amazing products. Such as the ZEST Body Wash or scrub. Along with this, I would add a pair of amazing headphones.

One thing that I am always looking for is bookends, but who wants the boring bookends you can find at any store. The one bookend that really stuck out to me was “The End” Bookend.  This bookend has to be the strongest I have ever found, and if you have a ton of books, this could be the answer.

When heading off to college the first time or heading back to finish out a degree being comfortable is one thing that you want a student always to feel. That is why I choose the Lacoste Home Collection for my pick when needing bedding. What I love most about this bedding set is that you really could decorate around it. The collection that I reviewed was the gray which leaves you tons of room to still add so much more.

If you need that perfect Bluetooth waterproof speaker check out the JBL Clip 2. That features a built-in carabiner for easy portability, so users can easily clip it onto a backpack, bike, etc. for an active adventure! The speaker can even play through rain or during a shower. Users can enjoy crystal-clear calls thanks to the noise and echo-free speakerphone. For even more amplified sound, the wireless daisy chain allows you to connect two Clip 2 devices together. The durable fabric and rugged rubber materials are built to last on all escapades.

The last product but certainly not least is the GHOSTBUSTERS headphones. These babies are AMAZING. Hip Hop Icon NAS teamed up with Ghostbusters, Monster and Ron Herman for an exclusive Fashion Collaboration “Ghostbusters is every fun thing you can think of when it comes to the imagination.” Along with the $500.00 NAS Ghostbusters headphones, they also are offering much more realistic options as well such as the Ghostbusters On-Ear Headphones


There are so many great products out there including the Brotoga that I really enjoyed. Make sure to check that out as well. Not only was it super soft but, oh so warm. I do hope that you enjoyed this little roundup, and as I find other amazing must haves, I will make sure to add them along the way.
