College is a time for exploration and getting out on your own for the very first time. For some though, it can also feel lonely when you find yourself alone for the very first time, without your family. Luckily, sending a college care package is a great way to not only provide your college student with the necessities they need while away at school, but some of the comforts of home as well.
My friend has a daughter who is starting her first year of college, and she is having a tough time adjusting. We decided to get together and build a back-to-school College Care Package for her, to hopefully brighten her day and provide her with some comfort.
Food can be a comfort to anyone who finds themselves in an uneasy situation. The student we were building our care package for is watching their weight, so we included some of their favorite taste treats from Weight Watchers so they can indulge without going overboard.
Providing gift cards to allow students to head out for a meal or treat themselves to something special is a great way to help add a little fun to their day when you are not around to treat them to an outing yourself.
Notes and Cards
Some encouraging words and news from home can make all the difference in the world to a student who is away from home and feeling a little homesick. Send along some upbeat notes and cards to brighten their day.
You can’t forget the reason the student is off to college in the first place. Include some consumable study supplies that they are likely to need within their first few months away at school.
Personal Hygiene Products
Personal hygiene is a big part of how you feel about yourself. When you feel like you look your best, you are better able to put your best foot forward with confidence and make new friends. That’s why one of the most important items we added to our college care package was our student’s favorite personal care products from Schick®.
Last week I stopped by my local Walmart store and picked up some Schick® Xtreme 3® and Schick® Hydro Silk® Razors. These disposable razors are the perfect way to make sure that your college student feels fresh, clean and can put their best self forward so that they can start each day feeling confident.
Stop by your local Walmart today to pick up these and other Schick® products to help put together the perfect college care package for your friend or loved one today!
