Send Your Smart Cookies Some Love at College

Your scholar may have moved into their newly decorated dorms, but that doesn’t mean they’re not still reminiscing about family vacations and movie nights! Surprise them with a care package that lets them know they’re near at heart, no matter how far in distance they may be.

When compiling the perfect care package for your special someone, keep in mind their unique personalities as well as their living habits. When picking out the ideal food products for your care package, keep in mind durability and shelf life. For example, Cheryl’s cookies arrive individually packaged and can be frozen for up to 6 months – the key here is the perfect balance of freshness, flavor, and convenience!

Here are 4 unique homemade care package ideas and themes to help inspire and educate:

Box of Sunshine

Stationery Package

A message posted on a Facebook wall is nice, but there’s nothing quite like the feeling one gets when opening a handwritten letter from the ones they love. Give your special scholar a hand with keeping in touch by surprising them with all of the fixins they need to become pros of the written word with a unique stationery-filled care package like this one featured by Ann Marie Loves.
