@calabama71: Another good idea for a college student’s care package is to send toiletry items. That way, they can save their money. Things such as toothpaste, soap, shampoo, and shaving items are good ideas. You can also find out what stores or restaurants are near their campus and purchase them a gift card.
You can pack all of the items in a plastic storage container that they can use. You can also send hard candy and gum. You could also add a deck of cards, stamps, stationery, or a pack of CD’s.
