Offers New, Creative Ideas for the Best Graduation Gifts for Recent High School Graduates

With graduation gift season underway, DormCo is seeking to provide new grad gifts and gift ideas with its selection of new products.

Buffalo, NY, July 04, 2014 --(, the premier online vendor for college dorm supplies, is helping prepare parents, relatives and loved ones for high school graduation season with its recommendations for graduation gifts. High schools all over the country recently graduated thousands of perspective college students, and graduation parties will be held late in to the summer. According to DormCo, the following ideas are sure to inspire any graduate gift giver to think outside the box and buy gifts college students will actually need in their dorm rooms.

Themed graduation gifts are a fun send off for graduates, according to Keith Gillogly, lead customer service representative at DormCo. One thing every college student needs is dorm laundry supplies. Filling a laundry bag with essentials like detergent, hangers and dryer sheets is a creative way to gift necessary dorm products to graduates.

“Especially for girls, a patterned laundry bag is a style statement as well as a functional product,” Gillogly said. “Our new orange and blue lobster printed College Laundry Bag has gotten a lot of positive reviews from customers.”

One of the focal pieces of a dorm room is the rug. It can be used to accent a student’s bed or other dorm furniture, or it can be placed in the center of the room. Either way, a dorm rug ties a decorating scheme together, DormCo believes. DormCo sells dorm rugs in a variety of colors and patterns, but says one of its bestselling rugs is the College Plush Rug, which comes in more than 10 colors.

“The College Plush Rug is the softest dorm rug imaginable,” said Jeff Gawronski, owner of DormCo. “Dorm rooms need rugs to warm up the cold tile floors. This inexpensive gift will be the perfect addition to any dorm room and students will thank you for it.”

Besides cold floors, dorm rooms also have a lack of seating. Gawronski said extra seating in dorm rooms is critical, so no one ends up sitting on the floor. He suggested DormCo’s Papasan Moon Chair as the ideal gift in the dorm seating category. According to, this moon chair has an extra thick cushion for added comfort, can fold flat for dorm room storage and is exclusive to DormCo.

Besides its vast inventory of individual products, DormCo also sells packages of dorm essentials and gift packs perfect for graduation gifts, Gillogly said. The 12 Days of College come pre-packed with dorm products in a variety of themes such as “Dorm Cookin’” and “The Dean’s List (Study Necessities).”

“Our gift packs have a theme to suit almost any high school graduate,” Gillogly said. “But if you want a completely custom gift, try buying one of our trunks and filling it with dorm supplies. Our mint-colored Sorority Trunk has been a huge seller. Throw a comfy twin xl blanket, like our super soft 'Are You Kidding?' blanket, and some fun dorm accessories, like Moodies [colored light bulb covers], inside and you’ll have one happy graduate!”

Gift cards are a reliable gift for graduates as well, according to Gawronski. DormCo sells gift cards in an amount chosen by the customer that can be sent via email or regular mail.

“For graduates that are extremely picky or not quite sure what they want for their new dorm room, gift cards are the perfect solution,” Gawronski said. “Students can pick out exactly what they want for their dorm rooms. What more could a new grad ask for?”
