Bedding is one of the first few things you’ll need to tick off your list, as you’ll need to get Twin XL sheets to fit the dorm bed. This highly rated comfortable sheet set is an incredible bundle and 20% off. There are plenty of colors to choose from, and reviewers like how soft the microfiber blend is and that the comforter doesn’t get too hot. At just $50, it’s good to try for their first year at school.

2. Dirt Devil Scorpion+ Boost Bundle Corded Hand Vacuum

Dorm rooms get messy, but there isn’t enough space to fit an entire vacuum. This handheld vacuum from Dirt Devil is easy to store, and it has excellent suction and a large dirt bin, so they aren’t constantly emptying it. They’ll be happy to have it when they spill Cheetos all over their floor late at night. It has a few attachments, too, including a crevice tool, a dusting brush, and an upholstery hose. Right now, you can save $5 on it!

3. Lucid 3 Inch Mattress Topper Twin XL

Sometimes the most challenging part of adjusting to college is getting used to sleeping on an old, hard mattress. This cushiony mattress topper from Lucid can help that transition be a little easier with 3 inches of CertiPur-US memory foam. It’s currently 15% off, making it a great time to buy. It arrives rolled off, and you’ll need to unfurl it upon arrival to the dorm to give it some time to air out.

4. Pottery Barn Teen Everyday Essential Towels
