Show your college student you care by sending them this Miss You A Latte College Care Package.
The college reality is starting to set in. As my husband and I prepare to send our oldest off to college in Boston, I am preparing ideas for the many college care packages that I plan to send. I am still finding hard that I have reached the point in my life when one of my kids will be leaving home, heading off to a big city – five hours away. Yes, I did the same thing, but I was a teenager then so I didn’t really understand how my parents felt. College Care packages are the perfect way to send a piece of home to your children. This Miss You A Latte College Care Package is one of the fun ideas that I have.
The “anatomy” of a college care package should be tailored to the likes of your child. For this Miss You Latte College Care Package, I am definitely including few things my daughter absolutely loves – Extra® Gum Spearmint, Extra® Gum Polar Ice® and a monogrammed travel mug for her coffee.
The new Extra® 35-stick pack is perfect for a busy college student. Not only do you get more sticks per pack, but it also comes in a sturdy, recyclable packaging. I like the Give Extra Get Extra idea. The larger packages are great too because that means there is more gum to share with friends and roomies.
I found this really nice photo box at the local craft store to fill up with lots of goodies. I really like the inspirational saying on it too. These boxes are great for dorm room storage.
Here is what I included in this Miss You A Latte College Care Package
- Extra® Gum Spearmint
- Extra® Gum Polar Ice®
- Monogrammed Travel Mug
- Coffee Pods
- Nail Polish
- Lip Balm
- A book about art (Gabrielle is majoring in Art Therapy)
- A small game for her and her roomies
- Instead of using tissue paper line the box, I wrapped everything together with a nice scarf that she can wear to class.
Extra® Gum 35-stick packages are available at Walgreens. These packages are easy to find in the gum aisle and at the checkout.
I am slowly starting to embrace this new phase of life. Once Gabrielle leaves, it will definitely take some adjusting. Sending her care packages like these will give me peace of mind knowing that we are sending her a latte love from home. Are you a college parent yet? What are some fun care packages that you like to send you kids?
