Things to Put in a College Care Package That Students Will Love
| by Pauline Flores

Thinking of a college care package to your favorite college student, but don’t know what things to put in? We at fygböx are experts at college care packages. Here is what we know college students love receiving in each care package. Of course, if you don’t have the time to put one together yourself, we would be happy to do it for you!

Snacks, Snacks, and More Snacks

Of the things to put in a college care package, snacks are on the top of the list! All that studying creates a voracious appetite among all college students. Maybe it’s how hard they’re working or maybe it’s a way to cope with the stress. Either way, you can quiet their hungry bellies and give them the fuel they need by adding a variety of snacks to your care package.

Throw in a good mix of nutritious, healthy snacks along with the more indulgent stuff, like a bar of chocolate, coffee, or homemade cookies. College students usually don’t have the time to eat a full meal in between classes, which is why those snacks are a super valuable addition!

Stuff They Need

Adding everyday essentials in your care package is a great way to make sure that your college student is practicing good self care. Think of personal care items like shampoo, lotion, shaving cream, and lip balm. Dorm essentials like dryer sheets and food storage are great additions as well. Not only will they save a trip to the grocery story, but they’ll appreciate you a lot more!

Cool Tech

If you think of yourself as a cool, hip parent, definitely try to add cool tech to your care packages! Headphones, Bluetooth speakers, and portable charging blocks are just a few examples that you can include in each fygböx.

Nothing will impress your college student more than opening a care package to find a brand-new pair of headphones! It’s ridiculous how often those things break. Don’t be afraid to get creative with the things you put in your care package. The only thing limiting your creativity is the size of the care package you want to send.

Something to Do

Give your college kid the study break they deserve with the help of your care package. Include fun games that can be played with friends or a frisbee to throw around. If your college student is a girl, a facial would be a great addition to your care package. College can be stressful, so think of what your college kid likes to do in their free time and include it in the care package.

Something Nice

“Something nice” is a broad term, but it is exactly what it sounds like! Think of this as a bonus addition that doesn’t necessarily fit into the categories above. Socks, beanies, notebooks, books, and dorm decorations are just a few of the options you can consider putting in. Overall, your goal is to pleasantly surprise your college student with a care package that they’ll love (and maybe even make the roommate jealous!).

The things to put in a college care package may seem like a lot, but trust us, students love it!
