5 Unique Care Package Ideas for College Students

What Should Be in Your Care Package?

It’s just about time for college students to head off to campus. This is an exciting time in a student’s life. They are about to exert their independence, gain responsibility, and spread their wings. While we want them to experience all that college has to offer, we also want to make sure they are set up for success. Let them know you’re thinking about them and taking care of anything they may have missed. So, send a unique care package to your new college student. The designers at Durocher Florist have compiled a list of items students might not think to bring back to school with them.

Other Gift Ideas

Portable Chargers Students are on the go these days and so are their electronics. Keep them charged up with a portable charger for their cell phones, tablets, laptops and anything else your student may to stay connected all day long.

Coffee Maker Help your student save a few bucks by skipping the daily trip to the coffee shop on the way to class. A small coffee maker with all the gear, including a travel mug, flavored creamers, and a variety of syrups. Make your student feel like their own barista every morning.

Tablet & Accessories While a laptop is essential to college life, a tablet could become your student’s best friend. Lightweight and easy to carry, these devices will help your student stay engaged without the bulk of a laptop everywhere they go. Add accessories like a protective case, portable keyboard and extra chargers for more convenience.

Gas & Grocery Gift Cards We know students live on a tight budget. Every so often, send a get a card that says “Thinking of You” with a local grocer’s gift card or gas station gift card inserted. Relieve your student’s bank account once in a while with a gift card for something as practical as food and gas.


Above all make sure your student knows how much you love them. A gift from the heart that’s also practical is a great way to show not only that you care, but that you’re thinking of their best interest.
