what do you need to start out in a basic single man apartment? Our nephew has stayed with us 4 yrs [View all]

Graduated from College a couple weeks ago. YEA. First one of the grandkids to graduate college. That makes in our combinded families My self, my brother, my wonderful hubby and now our nephew. He has a new full time job in his profession and it starts late Jan.

Currently he is scoping out apartments in his new city. He is excited and we are as well. We were happy to provide our home to him so he could get his degree and not have to owe tons in loans after graduation, and have come to view him as our son to some extent. We will be very sad to see him go, but proud of his job and ambition!

My question: What does a young kid with no obligations need to start up a "home of his own" I want to do a basket of necessities to start him off right. I was given 3 crockpots for Christmas ( I use them a lot) I think I will give him one of those and some of the recipies I use with them. Especially the recipies he asks for when I make dinner.

What else could go in the basket?
