Need a last minute gift for a grad? If you’re in a pinch, here’s a gift idea for college-bound kids.
The College Survival Kit ($45), in its smart red box, is designed for what Pinch calls “minor dormitory disasters.” The kit contains 12 items — everything from earplugs, laundry instructions and a screwdriver, to poster adhesive, an eye mask and a mending kit — and they’re all designed to fit in the black mesh dopp bag included. It’s great gift for guys.
Pinch’s Minimergency for Her ($20) will quickly become a favorite, especially in this lively criss-cross design. Compact, measuring 3-by-2-by-2 inches, these kits fit easily in a purse, and are thoughtfully stocked with 17 items girls often need in a crunch. There’s a deodorant towlette, nail polish remover pad and more, and something I’m always losing – earring backs.
Thistle’s is at 411 Libbie Ave. Store hours are Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays, this summer, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
