While thoughts may not have yet turned to the final preparations before your child begins boarding school, it’s always great for family and friends to have some gift inspo’ to run with.
This year’s list has been inspired by our chats with the boarders themselves as part of our Summer Series of Destination Boarding (the podcast). Whether you’ve got a new boarder heading off in 2024 or you just want to top up the gift pile for the returning boarder, there’s some great gift ideas here.
Of course we also grabbed some ideas from our own experience of kids heading off to boarding school, and the ever popular Ultimate Packing List.
Amanda’s Fave – “I was so impressed with the suggestions from the current boarders we interviewed for our Summer Series of the podcast! But my favourite was the idea of facial masks and pampering products for the girls (ok I’m a bit biased here)… One boarder said they love getting together and giving each other manicures, pedicures, facials and just a bit of special care.”
