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.
