Creatively packaging gift cards is a great option because you can control the price. Package a few of them up in a terra cotta pot, in a makeup bag or in a wallet to add to the presentation. Give gift cards from a fun restaurant in their new college town, the college bookstore, to Amazon Prime where they’ll enjoy 2 day shipping and free streaming videos, to fast casual restaurants like Chipotle & Subway or to a big box store for dorm supplies like Bed Bath & Beyond and Target.
