Awesome College Care Package Ideas
College kids love getting mail. After all, there is not much real snail mail these days – most of my mail could be addressed to the recycling center in my town and I would never miss it. Use this page for some great ideas, whether you have time to make something fancy or not. This past Valentine's Day, I emptied 3 packages of Dove chocolate hearts into a mailing envelope and sent it on.

My Baylor Bear loves chocolate, so this package is in the mail to him. There are chocolate turkeys and footballs. (He also loves football.) Chocolate is expensive so I filled the extra space with another one of his favorites – fruit gushers.
I mailed this package to my Baylor Bear last week. I made the “Boo” and “Eye Love You” signs to decorate the box. The eyeballs are Dove chocolates.
What better snack for my bear's nervous eating during exam prep than animal crackers in a big plastic bear!?!
