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.

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.

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.
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!
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.
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.

Coffee Care Package 

 

College days are long and hard and many are fueled by coffee. A Coffee Care Package makes a great graduation gift or college care package sent during the year. There are so many possibilites for a coffee care package like cute mugs, coffee pods, stainless steel bottles to keep their drink warm or cold, and Bizzy Cold Brew.

coffee care package

A perfect item for a Coffee Care Package is a bottle of Bizzy Cold Brew. Each bottle of Bizzy Organic Cold Brew Coffee is cold brewed to yield the right amount of caffeine with a delicious smooth flavor. They brew their cold brew extra STRONG using more coffee per batch than traditional cold brew would. The result is approximately 200 mg/cup of naturally occurring caffeine – the perfect energy boost!

My daughter and I tried Bizzy. First, we whipped it up as a cold drink with ice, water and milk. Yum! Then we tried one of their recipes, the Cinnamon Hot Coffee. As I am more of a hot coffee drinker, I loved the hot version. The cinnamon syrup made this drink worthy of a coffee house specialty.

Bizzy Cold Brew would be great in a dorm room without a coffee maker. It is a perfect drink mix straight out of the bottle or heated up in the microwave.

 We love our Hydroflasks at our house. They keep your drink hot or cold for HOURS. They have a stainless steel interior, so no funny tastes or smells, or concern about the safety of certain plastics. Pairing a bottle of Bizzy Cold Brew with a Hydroflask in your coffee care package will be appreciated every morning as your college student walks to class with their hot or cold coffee.

It is easy to complete your coffee care package. Wrap your items in a cellophane gift bag. You can add some colorful fill in the bottom also. Tie it up with a cute tag and ribbon. These Coffee cup tags are available in the Almost Empty Nest Store.  (A Starbucks gift card for the days they do not have time to make their own coffee is an added special touch.)

A College Survival Kit is a perfect gift or DIY project for a soon-to-be college student. Some kits are cute with puns and tags. Others are a collection of items for a dorm room.

Whether they are in desperate need of a snack or cup of coffee, have unexpectantly started their period, or have a splitting headache, this college survival kit will be there for them when they need it.

HOW TO MAKE A COLLEGE SURVIVAL KIT

started with this clear bag I found on Amazon. They came in a set of three, which is handy if you are making gifts for several people. I was looking for something small enough for a backpack or car console. I also liked that I could easily apply the labels to a clear bag as opposed to a fabric bag. The clear bags can also be taken into an NCAA sporting event that requires clear bags.

Packed Party has some absolutely adorable and superb quality bags that could also be used. I carry one of their bags in my purse for my lipglosses, hand sanitizer, hand lotion, etc. It is such a good bag because it has a vinyl liner.

Your college survival kit does not have to have a label, but when it is given as a gift, it dresses it up. I made the label with my Cricut machine.

You may purchase labels from the Almost Empty Nest Store.

 

 

WHAT TO INCLUDE IN A COLLEGE SURVIVAL KIT

Tylenol or other pain reliever: In case of the sudden onset of a headache or other pain.

Hair Ties: Sometimes a hair tie breaks or it is windy outside or a college girl just decides she wants to pull her hair up.

Tissues: Tissues can be used in an emergency to wipe up a small spill, help fix smeared makeup, or for their original purpose, to wipe a nose.

Feminine Products: No explanation needed. Periods come sometimes at very inconvenient times!

A Small Healthy Snack: A college girl may find herself in need of a snack between classes or when she absolutely cannot break away from studying or a group project.

Lip Balm: Chapped lips are no fun.

Nail File: Nails break and start snagging on everything. A nail file can be a really handy item in a pinch.

Safety Pins: Loose hem, button that won’t stay buttoned, blouse that is showing more than you thought when you left the dorm….

Band Aids: For a cut finger or shoes that are blistering a heel.

Starbucks Gift Card: Sometimes a cup of their favorite beverage is an emergency and what is a college student to do if she is out of money. The college survival kit to the rescue!!

Hand Sanitizer: Unfortunately our kids are going back to school during a pandemic. They cannot have too much hand sanitizer.

Mask: They will also need a collection of masks – some for their room, one for their backpack, one for the car. Most schools are not going to allow them in a building or a classroom without a mask. Having an extra one in their college survival kit will be a life saver if they accidentally left theirs somewhere or dropped it outside on the way to class. Good to always have an extra clean one in case theirs is dirty or a strap breaks.

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!

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.

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