Any parent knows just how hard it is to let those not so little ones go and finally fly the nest. Moving away from home is a daunting step for everyone and the feel of apprehensive teens is in the air as their new big adventure to University is soon to embark, or their return for the second or final year of studies. To ensure they get the most out of their experience and settle in as best they can, we have the perfect guide to help them personalise their first place and to create their own home away from home...

DUVET AND PILLOW
Choosing the right duvet and pillow can be detrimental to their sleep quality and comfort at night, but we all know they're not the cheapest of essentials. Our starter pack at £19.99 includes both a duvet and pillow together, what a bargain! They're sumptuously soft and, at this price, will help your purse stretch that bit further for those last remaining bits and pieces.
MATTRESS & PILLOW PROTECTOR
Everybody knows there is nothing like your own bed, so realising you've been landed with a springy bumpy mattress, isn't the least bit inviting. However, this problem can be easily solved with our mattress and pillow protector selection from as little as £8. These can be enough to turn their bed into a sleep haven.
Taking an overload of towels is always a must due to the washing machines being used as sparingly as possible, leaving them with at least one clean towel at all times. Whether they are using an en-suite or shared bathroom, our beautiful Egyptian cotton towels from as little as £5 will give them sumptuously soft warmth, absorbency and fast drying time. Not to mention the wide array of colours on offer!
Although some may consider them as far fetched, soft furnishings including pillows and throws can be enough to instantly transform their room into the ultimate chill and hang out zone. Brighten up your room with our vibrant colour cushions and throws to add character and texture.
Last but certainly not least, accessories. Male or female, everyone likes little sentiments and memories around their room to remind them of home, family and friends. We have an array of different accessories to choose from such as a multitude of photo frames from £4, to shabby chic wooden slogan boards and ornate tea-light holders to keep each individuals personal style.
