It seems like it happened overnight - your little baby is suddenly going off to college. This will be the first time she is fully on her own, so, being the ever thoughtful mom or dad, you’re going to put together all sorts of college care packages for her… And we’re here to help: just check out our handy care package ideas below!
- Forget Something? It’s always been your job to make sure they’re not forgetting anything, so why stop now? Here are some common culprits you can easily include: mouthwash, a hand and face towel, a pair of cozy slippers, their beloved books and movies. Of course, you know best—if there’s something they’re likely to have missed that can come in handy later, throw it in.
- Tea Time: Let it be a cold winter evening or a stressful midnight before an exam, tea can provide cozy comfort to anyone. And especially when it is your kid’s first time away from home! Even though you will not be around, include some tea in your care package to comfort them and remind them that you will always be there with them. Herbal and lemon tea are proven to soothe sore throats and relieve cold symptoms! So go ahead and send some herbal options like Chamomile and Ginger to help your baby during those cold and flu seasons.
- Feel Better Dear! Along with that tea, include some honey, cough drops and tissues in one of your care packages, for when your scholar isn’t feeling so great (dorm life is full of germs, remember?). Since you can’t be there to rub Vicks on his chest like you used to, Puffs Plus Lotion with the Scent of Vicks will do the job for you. And slip in Puffs To Go, so he can have soft, comforting tissues when he goes to class.
- Home Sweet Home: Homesickness is likely to strike at some point in the first semester. Here’s where soothing tea and Puffs facial tissue come in handy once more. Other homey care package ideas include a few choice items from your hometown: some sports team memorabilia or a local bagel or well-packaged pie. Plus, home-baked cookies are always a welcome treat.
