It’s that time of year again, when kids go back to school and parents look forward to quieter days. But there is an entire group of those parents who are dealing with something entirely different – sending a child away to college. A student being away from home for months at a time is exciting for everyone, yet can incur some angst and wistfulness as well. In order to ease the transition, many parents choose to send their young adults a gift to keep in their dorm room that will always remind them of home.

Green plants are an excellent gift choice for so many reasons. Of course, they bring a touch of aesthetic class to a dorm room, but did you realize that plants actually can create a relaxed and serene atmosphere? Plants give off oxygen and reduce dust levels, improving the overall air quality; and scientists tell us that they work to reduce stress, creating a sense of well-being we might not normally associate with a dorm room! Here’s a fact that may interest parents – studies have indicated that people are more productive and make fewer mistakes in their work environment when plants are present. And you are not just limited to green plants – if your daughter would prefer a colorful arrangement, Boyd’s Everlasting Garden or Kalanchoe blooming plants are a beautiful choice.
Sending a plant or floral arrangement to your college student is a meaningful way to let them know you are thinking of them. But don’t forget that Boyd’s can also send plants and flowers weekly, monthly or quarterly! We will create a standing order so that your student knows that they are loved and missed year-round, and the beauty exhibited in their dorm room will remind them every day. Come into Boyd’s of Wilmington to choose plants and flowers for their dorm room today, and throughout the year. We hope you and your students have a wonderful school year.
