Now Reading: Care Packages

College Care Packages

It is that time of year again. That’s right. It is the back-to-school season! As your loved ones are heading off into their new adventures, they will be met by friends, teachers, and lots of homework. They might be leaving home to start their own college adventure, but that doesn’t mean you can’t send a reminder of home to them. College Care Packages are everything a student dreams about as they check their mailbox each day.

College Care Packages can be customized to fit exactly what your student loves. Everyone knows that college students love snacks, so perhaps a food package with a few delicious treats will fit the bill! Worried about them eating healthy? Worry no more as healthy snack options are available and delicious! Their friends will beg them to share what you gave, and it will remind them of the loved ones they left at home.

Your Coffee Drinker

Coffee is a college students best friends. From early morning lectures to late night exam preparations, coffee can be found in the hands of many students. Coffee lovers will rejoice when they receive a care package filled with coffee gifts. This will make them the envy of their dorm and save them money from having to buy it on campus.

Weekends spent away from home can get lonely. Spice it up for them with a movie night care package. This will gather everyone together as they sit down to watch a few classic films. Whether it be a chilly winter night or just a cozy evening after a week full of projects and papers, the movie night themed basket will help de-stress your student and remind them of nights spent on the couch at home. You are essentially bringing a piece of home to their dorm.

Your Athlete

Student athletes are some of the hardest workers on campus! If your athlete can’t get enough of their sport, then send them a care package to show them how proud you are of their dedication. Perhaps your golfer would enjoy a few accessories to improve their game. From the basic equipment to themed gear, your athlete will shine on and off the field thanks to your gift!

Your Chef

Maybe the dorm life isn’t what your student dreamed of! Apartment living can be an amazing lesson on independence. Your student will need to cook for themselves, so give them a kitchen warming gift! This package will give them all of the essential tools and tricks they need to really live in luxury. Ramen noodles will be a thing of the past as your new chef learns the ropes of cooking for themselves. Their friends will thank you too when they begin to beg to come over for weekly dinners!

Say I Love You

College life can be very stressful, so receiving a package filled with things to brighten their day and help them relax would be perfect. Make their dorm room seem like a spa and a place they can wind down after a day of class. They will be eternally grateful for this package especially when midterms or finals week comes along!

Giving the gift of a care package will make a lasting impact on your loved one’s life. The college experience can seem to fly by, but it will be impossible to forget the time someone they loved sent them a thoughtful present. From food to fun, the possibilities are endless when it comes to sending a college care package. What a perfect way to say I love you.
