How to Make your Easter Care Package:

 

I start all of my care packages with a Medium Flat Rate Priority box. The boxes are available for free at your post office. They ship for $14.35 regardless of the weight of the package.

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.

Of course, the first thing you need is Easter Grass! Put this in the bottom of the box. It also acts as packing material.

 

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.

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.

Want to make your Easter care package even more special? Almost Empty Nest has premium Easter Care Package Decorations available in the Almost Empty Nest Store.

Steps for making a Going Away to College Coffee Gift Basket:

1. Gather the items on this Supply List: 

White Card stock

Cute Ribbon

Basket Filler

Coffee Pods

Cute Mug

Container or Basket: I found the gold one in the picture at Target. Dorm rooms are tight, so I did not want something very large. I bought a small oval one large enough for a mug and coffee pods. There are some similar gold trays on Amazon.

Clear basket wrap

 

2. Add some other items to your Going Away to College Coffee Gift Basket to make it super special:

A Keurig (No dorm room should be without one!)

Coffee Creamer Singles

Travel Mug (for drinking their coffee on the run)

Cute Dish Towel 

Biscotti

Starbucks Gift Card

Slippers

Pajamas

Throw Blanket

Devotional Book like Fearless Faith: Devotions for College Students

Tea bags for the tea lover

 

3.Have fun putting together a great Going Away to College Coffee Gift Basket!

Put it all together in a cellophane bag.

Add a cute tag and some ribbon!! The tag is available in the Almost Empty Nest Printables Library. (Join the community below this post for access.)

Check out these Coffee Shop Gift card holders in the Almost Empty Nest store. You can give them to everyone on your list or attach them to your Going Away to College Coffee Gift Basket.

Consider printing and slipping in a Bible Verse or two or twelve from 12 Bible Verses for College Students.

All of the care package decorations I create fit a USPS Medium Rate Flat Rate Box, which ships for $13.60, regardless of weight.

March Madness Care Package

March Madness Care Package

 

March Madness is one of my favorite times of the year! Not because I love basketball that much, but because it reminds of my oldest son.

I think he filled out his first bracket when he was 5 years old. He was instantly obsessed with the tournament and has loved basketball to this day. He now lives over 1200 miles away, but I know he will be watching every second of the tournament he can.

And, he will have a March Madness Care Package from mom to provide some snacks while he watches.

I went to the store to find orange things for the March Madness care package. Who knew there were so many foods and other items that are orange? I was hoping I would not run into anyone I knew because I looked like I had a bizarre new obsession.

 

 

Coffee for maximum concentration while filling out the bracket.
Tea for the agony of the blown bracket.
A little sweet….

Hershey's Caramel Kisses are orange with black stripes. Perfect!!! Reese's makes these basketball sports tins every Valentine's season. (May be able to find a clearance one if you hurry!)

A little salty….

Orange Pringles and almonds with an orange lid.

 

I am IN LOVE with how cute these cuties are! Draw basketball lines on cutie oranges for a healthy treat.
As long as they know not to eat Tide Pods, throw some in as well, so they can do some laundry while they watch the games.
Sending it all in an adorable box tops it all off. Let the madness begin!!

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 before you make your boxes. They cost $13.20 to mail regardless of the weight.

I make all of my Care Package decorations and labels with Pic Monkey.

I chose these bright yellow napkins because they looked like penalty flags! The green striped straws are adorable and are a nice contract to the yellow napkins. Your sons may not care about these items, but tell them that the girls will love them!!

The football stress balls are fun to throw around or to use for decorations.

The guys will love official Super Bowl merch like these Super Bowl logo cups.

Everyone needs football brownies and Super Bowl Rings! 

I got industrious and made brownies that I cut out and decorated to look like footballs. If shipping the brownies is not an option send them a brownie mix, cookie icing, and a football cookie cutter.

I also enclosed a Walmart gift card that I bought at a DISCOUNT on Raise, so they could go get some more food and party supplies.

The completed Super Bowl Care Package – a Super Bowl Party in a Box!

Cutest Super Bowl Cookies EVER!! 

I found some ADORABLE football cookies on a blog called The Monday Box. This blog is completely dedicated to recipes that can be mailed in care packages.
