With the back-to-school/back-to-college shopping season in full swing across many parts of the country, the challenge of finding the right products for those heading back to class is again facing students and their families.
To help ease this burden, the use of gift registries continue to gain in popularity. Officials with MyRegistry.com noted that more than 3.7 million students graduated high school this past spring, a figure that is nearly double the number of weddings this year.
According to MyRegistry.com, housewares products are among the products that soon-to-be college students are placing on their gift registries. These include:
• Organizing and storage items that include bins, containers, hanging shelves, over-the-door hooks, shoe racks, laundry bags and trash cans.
• Room decor and assorted desk accessories such as wall art, rugs, desk lamps, surge protectors and room safes.
• Cooking and serveware items such as plates, mugs, bowls, coffeemakers, water bottles, toaster ovens and other storage containers.
Other popular items include personal electronics, bedding products and active lifestyle apparel and gear.
