It’s easy! Customize your experience by selecting the months in the academic year when you would like your student to receive a fygböx (up to three in the fall, three in the winter/spring, and two “finals” boxes). Enter a few details about your student and payment info, and we will take care of the rest.

“fyg” stands for feed your genius™. We’re not your run-of-the-mill college student gift box (they can buy junk food for themselves), but curated surprises (around six per box) for your student and to share with friends. fygböx provides original, fun items to help fuel your student’s academic success and college experience.

Each fyböx is thoughtfully curated with around six cool, hip and clever items. The products are road-tested by our student ambassadors, regularly refreshed and updated, so we do not provide a standard list of contents. It really is a surprise.  We do include some carefully selected food items, but this is definitely not your traditional gift basket. It’s the college care package, elevated.
