Ideas for College Care Packages

My son Luke is a freshman at George Washington University.  He's doing great, I'm happy to report but it's finals week soon. I put together a care package to hopefully lighten the load and stress. 

Here's what I included:


His favorite locally roasted coffee.


Homemade granola.


Pumpkin Bread – for the recipe, click here.


A coffee mug from the Starbucks 'You are here' collection.


A few pairs of socks and underwear since I seriously doubt there will be much laundry being done.


I tried to find some inspiration for college care packages, especially ones that are geared to boys (girls are SO much easier), and couldn't find much. Here are a few that I liked:

The Ice Cream Sundae Care Package



The I Hope It's Not Mono Care Package


The I Ran Out of Money Care Package


If you have sent, going to send, or have a great idea for a care package for a college student, please send your idea to me either in email or the comments! Would love to hear from you!

Happy week to you!
