This year we have so many people we know sending their children off to college! With our son being a freshman in college this fall along with all of his friends, a nephew of ours, and two of our nieces returning to college we have a lot of people to think about. That’s a lot of college students! As a mama, I love providing care packages to my loved ones when I can’t be with them so I plan on making a lot this fall/winter and spring to help get them through their days away from home. A couple of these college students we know are big tea fans so I used some Bigelow Tea from Target and made some care packages for them to take with them on their journey to school!
The baskets were so fun to put together! I tried to think of some small items that would be nice for them to have in their dorms and to have as a college student in general. Of course, I visited the dollar section at Target and was thrilled to find some hand-sized student planners. Yes, they have their smart phones…but it’s nice to have somewhere to WRITE things down, too. I then went to find some Bigelow Tea to add in as tea can be very beneficial! It was easily found in the grocery section in the coffee and tea aisle.
There was a nice variety of Bigelow Teas available at my local Target. I narrowed my purchase down to three teas: Green Tea with Lemon, Constant Comment and Cozy Chamomile! I thought this was a great selection for my college student recipients, healthy teas and teas to help them relax after some stressful classes and/or studying!
Some other things I included in my care packages were: sticky notes, pens, student planner, highlighter, snack bars, oatmeal, fruit snacks, granola, lotion, shower gel, soap and for fun, an iTunes gift card. I thought that was a pretty good range of things that they can use regularly and would appreciate! Adding things like the teas brings a personal touch to the packages because it’s a favorite and it’s thoughtful in terms of health and relaxation benefits!
