College Care Package Ideas to Make Mom Happy

College care package ideas #peartreegreetings #college #graduation
My son left for college at the end of August and left a big hole in our family. I don’t miss his messy room or dirty socks, but I do miss our conversations and being in touch with what’s going on in his daily life.

He doesn’t seem to miss me much, if the number of times he’s contacted us is any indication. I know he’s having a great time and is busy with new experiences. Like all moms, I want him to be happy and make friends, but to know that if he’s sad or lonely or just having a bad day, we are still here for him.

I have decided to send him a care package and have been asking other moms for care package ideas. I will fill it with lots of his favorite snacks, the sandals he left under his bed, a new set of earbuds for his iPod, a throw pillow for his dorm room, a pound of coffee, and a gift card for his favorite takeout restaurant. Then I’ll top it off with a little note on my personalized note card (that I made just for this purpose) that says “packed with love” on the front.

He won’t expect it. He doesn’t need it. But he will like it, I’m pretty sure. Just picturing the smile on his face makes me feel better already.

Be sure to shop our stationery collection for personalized note cards to top off your care package ideas.
