I’ve sent two of my “babies” off to college and sending them college care packages is how I show them how much we miss and love them. I enjoy creating fun and unique college care package ideas as a way to surprise my babies, make them smile and to distract me (if only briefly) from how much I miss them. Creative college care package ideas make a fun idea even more fun, whether it’s the first care package of the year, a winter college care package, a holiday care package, a spring care package, a college care package for finals or any occasion at all.
