How to Make Memorable College Care Packages

How to Make Memorable College Care Packages
Posted By: Kara Masterson on January 06, 2020

Sending care packages to a college student in your life can be a very nice gesture, especially in the middle of a stressful part of the year such as final exams. Creating a really good care package, however, is something of an art. Consider these ideas for how to put one together.

Include Items Useful for College Students


Certain items are just useful for college students in general. Examples include school supplies, personal supplies, items with the college’s logo on them and more. Other practical items are laundry supplies, cleaning supplies and medicines. Seasonal items are always good options for the holidays, such as Christmas decorations around the winter holidays and Halloween candy around Halloween. It’s also difficult to go wrong with money and gift cards.

Include What the Person Will Like


The best **** are personal, so a memorable college care package should include items that are specific to the recipient’s interests. Students who enjoy reading would appreciate the next book in a series they are reading while students who like sports would appreciate sports equipment and memorabilia. Items of interest could also line up with the subject a student is studying as a sign of encouragement and support.



A nice idea for a student training to get their CDL license could be a trucker hat, for instance.

Include **** from Home


College students often experience homesickness. For this reason, one of the best ways to create a memorable care package is by including **** and items from home. This can include food, novelties and other items that can only be found around a student’s hometown. Such a gesture can help ease a student’s loneliness and tide them over before they have a chance to come home and restock on their favorite things.

Include Enough to Share


Although most roommates and suite mates don’t expect anything when someone they are living with receives a care package, it can still be nice to send enough to share. This gesture can help cement the relationships a college student has with the people they live with and even cause them to make new friends. The experience of sharing with others can make for a very memorable care package.
Care packages can really lift the spirits of a college student, whether they are struggling or not. A package put together with thought and care is often even more impactful. They can be an excellent way to support your college student and demonstrate that you care.
