5 Thoughtful Yet Practical Care Packages for College Students

5 Thoughtful Yet Practical Care Packages for College Students
Posted By: Kara Masterson on January 10, 2020

If you're a college student, receiving care packages from home may be comforting and even exciting. After all, this can show that your parents still love you, and you get a free gift as well. Whether you’re a student or parent, you may want to read on about these care packages.



Homemade Treats



You can bake homemade treats or send a subscription box. Homemade foods can be healthy, delicious, and vegetarian or vegan if necessary. Consider sending a KIND bar subscription box so your loved one can snack on a treat that's tasty and healthy. Eating food from home can be comforting in stressful or lonely times.



New Clothes



Whether a student is participating in sports or just walks from class to class a few times a week, clothing can wear out quickly. If you want to give the gift of comfort, try sending a rasta zip Up hoodie. By packing new clothes in a care package, your kid will never have to worry about taking extra time and effort to buy more.



Natural Care Items



Keep your college student healthy by purchasing items without artificial ingredients. You can pack items such as Burt's Bees Lip Balm, Purple Prairie Botanicals Lavender All Purpose Therapy Bar or Nourish Organic Face Serum.



Someone who supports a cause will likely enjoy receiving items that are organic, vegan and cruelty-free.



Decorative Plants



Plants give off oxygen which may be lacking in a dorm room. Besides this, flowers and succulents can be aesthetically pleasing and highly desirable to students. Brighten up any drab dorm room with beautiful plants. You can even find a flower subscription service for regular delivery.



Writing Tools



You can give a college student stationery he/she will actually want to use. Besides this, they'll be more likely to remember to write home often. Choose colorful note cards, pens and envelopes that fit the student's unique personality. You can also send an attractive journal for creative writers or artists. Students need a healthy way to pass the time so they’re less likely to search for trouble.



No matter what's contained inside a care package, it should be meaningful. In fact, college students are often too busy doing homework, spending time with friends and living a campus lifestyle to think about what really matters. For this reason, as a parent, you should make every effort to remind your kids of home.
