I think we can all agree while being away at college, it’s nice when the mail comes through and you have a personalized care package waiting for you.
Whether it be your family, a friend or a spouse, that every now and then reminder they’re thinking of you is sometimes that pick-me-up you need. Anything from a holiday care package to a “thinking of you” package is always appreciated.
College Care Package Ideas
I can’t recall ever receiving a care package in college, however, my mom sent me frequent boxes of snacks and the Amazon purchases I always needed, so that counts in a way. She would stock me up. Lowkey she would send me multiple a year that would be full us supplies I ran out of or needed, then there would be a box of just kind bars.
I remember my roommate always surprised like, “she sent another? More food?” I swear sometimes I would avoid going to the store so I could just live off of the bars she bought me. Sometimes she would include items I didn’t even realize I needed or knew I wanted. I can’t say they were ever styled cute in any way, but she supplied me with everything a mom could.
My mom is always good about finding little things here and there she knows I’ll like, and a care package was no different. My mom has been known for always doing too much, but she knew the essentials to my college living.
College Care Packages
The fun thing about care packages is they can be personalized in any way, any theme, for any occasion. Anything from a holiday, to a birthday, to just because or something funny, you can include a quote that’s the focus on the box and has items relating to that.
