Recently, my oldest nephew went off to college. My husband kind of laughed, suggesting guys don't care as much as girls, but I know he loved those chocolate peanut butter cookies from his grandma! I want our nephew to know how much we're thinking about him, so I put together a care package. Since he recently left, I know my sister-in-law got everything he needs. I remember when I started college, my parents left me fully stocked with snacks. I wanted to branch out a little, so I grabbed nicer items and some things a college guy might use.
My care package is for a young man. If you're looking for ideas for a young lady, scroll to the bottom of the page for some ideas. This is such an easy way to send some love. I hope you find a little inspiration!
I started with the basics. Everybody likes candy!
More basics here. Chapstick is something my husband always needs but never has. I'm assuming he isn't the only man with that problem...
You might not know if the recipient wears cologne (or what kind), but everyone needs to shower! I went with a higher end shower gel from TJ Maxx (similar option here).
I found some really nice crew tees/undershirts that stole my heart with the little four leaf clover. Thanks, Lucky Brand!
I added some dress socks. He may have some. He may not. But guys (especially the kind that play college football), could probably stand to add some new ones to the rotation now and then.
Lastly, we added some artwork from his little cousins who think he's the coolest.
If it had been my niece who was on the receiving end of the care package, here are some things I might have added.
