Whether you're packing your son or daughter off to university for the first time or heading there yourself, stock up with these university essentials to create a home from home.
From the minute you step onto campus future friends are shoving leaflets and flyers about societies, club nights and housekeeping at you. Don't miss out - these colourful notebooks from Piccadelhi are light enough to fit in your bag. There's a lot to remember in those first few days at university so write everything down. Including in lectures.
BRIGHTEN YOUR BEDROOM
Why is it that most university rooms are beige and sad and smell slightly of absinthe? This Japanese Festival Quilt from Safomasi is the perfect gift for someone heading off to university - cool, contemporary and colourful it will turn any room instantly into the place people want to congregate and will offer an extra layer of comfort when studying in bed (yes, that's a thing).
Make your dishes stand out in the communal kitchen. These Red and Blue Dash Bowls from Mino District in Japan are sturdy and solid with a gorgeous hypnotic pattern. They are a great size for cereal, pasta, salad and chilli.
DON'T FORGET THE WASHING UP
You can never have enough tea towels at university as there is a lot of drying up to do but somehow the tea towels never seem to get washed. Grab a couple of these awesome Indianism tea towels from Piccadelhi to add to the pile and keep things (relatively) clean.
PIMP YOUR POUCH
What with the new set of keys, new student ID card and million vouchers to get you money off your lunch you're going to need a bigger pouch to pop in your bag. This Mustard Poodle Pouch from Safomasi is just the trick.
