College Finals Care Package

College Finals Care Package


College finals are around the corner. It’s almost time to get our college students back from their second homes. But before they can come home, they have to endure a week of tests. Send them a college finals care package to help them through the week.

The care package decorations and the item tags are available in the Printables Library as part of the Year of Care Package Printables. You can gain access below the post.

Help them light up their tests with a new study highlighter. I love to tie the tags to the items with cute ribbon like this swiss dot.

College Finals Care Package 2

Keep them rollin’ toward their goals with a bag of Tootsie Rolls (or Rolos, if they perfer).

College Finals Care Package 3

Popcorn is a great care package item. It’s filling and not too unhealthy.

College Finals Care Package 4

The end of the semester is a good time to replenish some necessary supplies. Don’t want them going to finals in dirty clothes!

College Finals Care Package 5

A box with fun encouraging messages tops it off. Put more of their favorites under the cute, labeled items. Some other favorite items to include in a college finals care package are emoji stress balls, hot chocolate mix, k-cups, granola bars, and festive socks.

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 $15.50 to mail regardless of the weight.

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. This is a great idea. I need to put something together for my college kiddo.

  2. I worked with college students before becoming a SAHM, and I know that these sorts of things are so well appreciated! Great ideas to encourage those that are “out of the house”, but not quite on their own yet!

  3. Love these ideas

    • Thank you! So fun to send some encouragement to our kids!
