Transcript:How to Make Care Packages For College StudentsHey guys - Jonathon Stewart here for About.com with today's 90 second quick tip. Remember those harrowing days of staying up however late you wanted, sleeping through classes, wearing your favorite Dead tee 24/7, and living on Milwaukee's Best and Ramen? Oh, those poor, poor college students. If only so that they know there's the light of the real world at the end of the tunnel, we should probably send them a care package. Check it out.
Sentimental Touches in Care PackageWhile college kids do have a lot of freedom and time, what they don't have are the things from home that only you can provide. Priority shipped homemade chocolate chip cookies, pictures of friends and family, hand-written notes and letters, school reports from siblings, mix-CDs or even home videos can help bring a small slice of home into their collegiate world.
Practical Items in Gift PackagesNon-perishable comfort food like mac n' cheese, clean sheets, and gift cards from local drug stores for supplies are staples that you can't go wrong with. Shipping your package in a reusable storage container instead of a box can be an added bonus for organizationally challenged offspring as well. But most of all, just be sure to pack it with some love.
Cash in Care PackagesAnother thing most college kids don't seem to have is money, so cash, checks, and credit cards also seem to go over pretty well. Just don't be surprised if your financial contribution doesn't get spent at the local health food store. Unless they have a beer section.
