Birthday Care Package



It can kinda stink to be away at college for your birthday (or to be the mom who can’t see her baby on the special day)! Sending them a Birthday Care Package can cheer everyone up. Print out the Birthday care package printables, tuck in some favorite treats and gifts, and their Birthday Party in a Box is on it’s way!

You The Birthday Care Package Printables are available in the Printables Library. You may sign up below the post for access.

I went a little girly with my care package items this time and I thought these Godiva Limited Edition Cake Inspired Chocolates were perfect for a birthday care package.

I also could not resist these Rainbow Chip Mug Cakes – icing included!

Birthday Care Package 4

Be sure to include candles, party plates and napkins, and decorations. I am all about these adorable llama plates and napkins!

Add a present or gift cards in the box as well! Anything the birthday kid will make their day special and fun. 

How to Mail Your Care Packages:

I recommend Medium Flat Rate boxes from the post office. The boxes are free. You can pick them up at the post office before you make your boxes. They cost $14.35 to mail regardless of the weight. All of my care package printables are designed to fit this size box.

No time to make a birthday care package?

Packed Party has some super cute care packages for her. Also check out CrateJoy and Etsy for birthday care packges for both the guys and gals.

Hey There!

I’m Laura

Welcome to Almost Empty Nest! I began this blog in September 2014 after leaving my oldest son at college and realizing that my nest was emptying. Join me on this journey as we explore the path of guiding our children to adulthood and rediscovering ourselves beyond the mom years.


  1. Thank you for the birthday care package. Last year our sons birthday fell on a weekday but this year his 21st landed on a Tuesday smack in the middle of a heavy class schedule. This will be perfect for next year. Thank you for your creative ideas and designs. We had fun with March Madness.

    • Awesome! Hope he loves his birthday care pacakge!!
