What do you get a guy for a dorm room?
1. A Lumie Sunrise Alarm or Bodyclock
This is amazing for the student who struggles with early starts, as it imitates the sun rising and slowly filling the room with light, to make waking up easier. He will never want to go back to a normal alarm clock ever again. It’s the perfect dorm room gift idea for your boyfriend!
2. A plant for good feng shui
The first step here is deciding what you want to grow or what plants best suit a dorm room, that are hardy enough to survive in a man cave environment. Some hardy plants that are said to promote good feng shui in your space are lucky bamboo and the money tree. Lucky bamboo makes a perfect plant for his dorm room as it is easy to grow and doesn’t require much sunlight, as well as bringing with it a peaceful and wise energy.
Another plant that is perfect If you don’t have any natural sunlight in your apartment is the Money Tree, which is aptly named for its ability to bring peaceful and prosperous energies to a space. If your loved one has a flat share or house share, or college apartment, with some small outdoor space, gift them a plant to pop right by their front door. This is a key area in feng shui, to make the entrance of your abode pretty and welcoming for visitors, and a front door gift makes for the perfect moving in gift too!
The best plants for the front door in feng shui are those with soft, rounded, heart-shaped, or broad leaves that will draw in positive, auspicious energy. Some of the most popular front door feng shui plants include money trees, areca palms, jade plants, fruit trees, ferns, geraniums, and chrysanthemums.
You could also gift them a mini watering can, a mini trowel, some soil fertiliser and some natural pesticides for the outdoor plants from Green Gardener as well in order to keep any harmful insects away from your beautiful flowers! Gardening is a wonderful stress reliever and will give them a wonderful way to relax and spend more time with nature, as well as enhancing their new space.
