Fall Care Package

Fall Care Package

 

Why wait until Halloween for your first care package? Send your college student a Fall Care Package now to celebrate the change of seasons and to encourage them at the start of the semester.

Since it is 2020, I don't know if there will be football, but fingers-crossed, maybe…. So, I made an alternate box top that says “sweaters” instead. Perfect if there is no football or if your student does not like football anyway.

This adorable care package has FREE PRINTABLE box decorations available in the Almost Empty Nest Printables Library. Follow the link above or below this post.

Fall Care Package 6

College Football Season is one of our favorite times of the year. Help them get ready for game day with a football mug and rally towel ( actually a kitchen cup towel). I found these items at Hobby Lobby. Amazon also has some cute football mugs  and towels.

Fall Care Package 7
Monster trail mix and monster paper products will get them ready for Halloween Fun. How fun are these monster popcorn holders? Add some microwave popcorn to fill them up.
Fall Care Package 8
We have gone Pumpkin Spice crazy!! Pretty much everything comes in pumpkin spice now. I found these items at Target. They can drink their pumpkin spice lattes and eat their pumpkin spice muffins from their football mugs!
Fall Care Package 9
I made a run through Bath and Body Works so I could include the Pumpkin Marshmallow Latte soap and other Halloween fun items in my daughter's box. My sons would not be that interested in these items.
Fall Care Package 10
Also for my daughter – some cute decorations from Hobby Lobby: cute purple bat lights, pumpkin ice cube tray, a light up ghost, and a little block decoration. You can find similar items on Amazon.

Box Decorations

In addition to the decorations on the box flaps, I ordered some window clings to put in the bottom of the box. What college student does not need these clings on their window to inform the world that there is a bloodied and bruised college student inside studying for mid-terms?

More Halloween Care Package Ideas and Printables 13

Window Clings

The window clings came in a HUGE package and there were TONS of them, so I cut them apart to put in the bottom of the box. One order would probably do it for a care package party. There are a LOT of them in the package.

Treat Yo Self Halloween Care Package 19

All of the care packages I have made before were for my sons, so they have not been girly. I decided I wanted to buy things for my daughter, a senior in high school, this time. The halloween package printables will work for anybody – just adapt the items inside for the recipient.

I started with the latest Bath and Body Works fall items – Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte body cream and hand soap and a purse-sized hand cream. I also included a Bright Autumn Blooms shower gel and a cute hand sanitizer. A scented candle is another great seasonal idea. (However, most dorms do not allow candles, so only send if your student is off campus.)

I found the mummy mug at my grocery store. I added some Tazo Chai pumpkin spice tea and a Starbucks gift card, so she can grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte. And of course, a girl has to have some chocolate. Dove has some adorable orange pumpkin foil wraps for the season.

Boys could also use shower gel and hand soap or other grooming products. They would also appreciate a fun mug and a Starbucks card. Other ideas are seasonal socks, snacks, paper products, and holiday decor.

Halloween coincides with midterms and the arrival of colder weather. It is a great time for a treat from Mom to encourage them that they can make it to Thanksgiving break.

Whether you send food, Halloween decor, grooming items, school supplies, or gift cards, kids always appreciate a fun package from home!

Easter Care Package Printables

An Easter Care Package may be the easiest of all care packages to make because the stores are full of colorful Easter items to make your package a gift to remember.

Place your Easter care package printables on your box. Then add some Easter Grass! Put this in the bottom of the box. It also acts as packing material.

What to Put in an Easter Care Package

 

Add some Plastic Easter Eggs. For my son's packages, I stuffed each egg with money. One son has to use coin operated laundry machines, so plastic eggs are a great place to put quarters.I also made a box for a relative who is serving oversees in the military. I put candy in his plastic eggs.

And no Easter basket or care package is complete without a Chocolate Bunny.

Finish off your care package with any other Easter themed items you would like. I used Goldfish crackers and other candy. Seasonal school supplies, scented candles, or bath items would also be great – anything that brings some beautiful color to the box.

You will have them hopping around their dorm room or apartment on Easter morning with a few treats from you to remind them how much you love them.
