Creating A Care Package

The other day I decided to make a care package for my sister who was feeling homesick on her first day away from home at college. She’s in a completely different city, which can be very hard when you’ve been living 18 years of your life in the same home. I thought I would film its contents (last minute) before I sent it on its way, in case it inspired you to do something similar for your student or sibling who’s away from home right now! Enjoy!

    I went to college in state with my twin sister, so I never had the fun of getting a care package! This is so cute and so sweet of you to make your sis feel like she’s more at home :) Good sister award goes to you!

    Great ideas! I just put one together for my niece. Threw in a sewing kit, some Miss Oops wardrobe helpers and (so she wouldn’t have to spend her money on them) a few school supplies. I think putting care packages together is almost as fun as getting them! :)

    I send my son care packages all the time. In his most recent package I included a Dove Mens +Care Body Wash and Shampoo, little portable breath sprays, a tube of e.l.f. zit zapper just in case a nasty pimple pops up, little portable dental flossing sticks, and various food items. He always enjoys getting things in the mail at college.

    Even though I didn’t have to leave home to go to university, I can totally see how helpful care packages would be, especially since it brings with it a bit of home so you don’t feel quite as homesick.

    You are the best big sister! I love the boots, but I’m a sucker for EOS lip balm.

    I love sending care packages! For my daughter’s first birthday at college, I sent a “party in a box”. It included a Happy Birthday banner, party horns, a bunch of party favors, balloons, cake mix, frosting, candles and a birthday girl crown.
    Another idea, which I haven’t used yet, is a sunshine box. For someone homesick, include anything yellow, happy and sunny in their box. So fun!
