University Starters: Moving Out Gift Guide

leaving home

It seems as though it only just arrived, but August is nearly over. A Level results day has come and gone and, with September fast approaching, many school leavers and parents are turning their attention toward the next important change: university.

It’s no secret that starting university can be a big adjustment, but it’s easy to forget that this doesn’t apply just to students; having a child fly the nest can be a bit jarring for parents too- especially since they don’t have the fun of Freshers’ Week to ease them in!

Whether you’re an expectant student with pre-university nerves, or a parent bracing yourself for an unusually quiet few months, it’s important to reassure your loved one that distance doesn’t change a thing: home is where your family is.

We’ve compiled a perfect list of gifts for mothers and daughters to exchange as they embark upon a new chapter in life.
