College Care Package for Women (girls) - Organized 31 #FitToPlay #Ad

I remember that this time of year just dragged by when I was in college.  I know it’s certainly dragging by for me with my “baby” in her first year of college (I am so-oooo ready for her to be home for spring break!).  The terrible cold and snowy weather has been making time seem to drag by even more slowly.  So what’s a mama to do?  Make her “baby” a college care package, of course.  With 4 girls sharing a room, I figured it’s a splendid time to send a care package for women as a surprise for all of them (and earn some mom points, too).

I considered lots of different themes for care packages.  I think it’s this mama’s coping mechanism to spend way too much lots of time contemplating just the right thing to send.  As I was thinking about what my daughter would appreciate,  I remembered what it was like to share a dorm room with 3 other women.  Let’s be honest here – it can be challenging.  One of the big challenges is that roommates  “borrow” your things without asking.  I’ve lived with other women both in college and in the military and one of the most commonly taken items is feminine hygiene products.  That can be extremely aggravating when you open that box (for a critical reason) and it’s empty.

Right then I decided that I’d create a girl-themed care package for my daughter and her 3 roommates.

I also made 4 DIY feminine cases to go in the care package.  That way they can have something pretty to carry the necessities in when they’re running to class, sports and activities.

I included some pretty razors, cotton swabs and lotion.  What woman doesn’t appreciate pretty personal care items?

And of course, I had to add some fun treats.  If you look in the party favor section of the store, you can find some really fun treats like bubble rings, candy necklaces and a bucket of gum balls (that are almost too pretty to eat).

I think I did pretty well putting together just what a roomful of girls need and will enjoy.  Of course, I’ll add a big, giant container of homemade cookies to the care package box!
