Best Graduation Gift (for Kids Who Need To Cook In College)

A sweet friend of my son is heading off to college this week, and when he mentioned he had to cook for himself at school, I knew just what  we had to get him!

My son lives in a college house where lots of kids cook for themselves, so last year I sent them a copy of Crocktober and the boys loved the recipes.

(Or at least they pretended they did.) 

(Which made this crock-pot-lovin'-momma a wee bit too happy!) 🙂 

So, we sent him off with . . . 

  • His very first crockpot
  • Copy of my Crocktober cookbook (I should have signed it for him ~ ha!)
  • Jar of pepperoncini peppers and Au Jus gravy packet (those are hard to find, and I wanted him to have a quick win!)
  • And a little grocery cash to shop for his very first shoulder roast too 🙂


This was such a fun gift, and I'm crossing my fingers he'll let me know how it goes. If you've got any other fun ideas for gifts for students as they head off to school, leave a comment to share ~ I love hearing from you!
