Amazing Halloween Care Packages

There’s nothing like receiving an unexpected gift in the mail, right?

I know that it never fails to put a smile on my face.  I’m just always so happy to know that someone would put the time into sending me something just to brighten my day.

So it makes sense that:

College students feel the same way about surprise mail. Especially when they’re feeling a little homesick during the holiday season.

That’s why I put together this list of Halloween care package ideas. My goal is to help family and friends with the brainstorming process.

Because:

No matter what’s inside a care package, it can help ease feelings of loneliness freshman students may be experiencing. 

With Halloween festivities coming up, why not add a little creativity to the package?

Make it spooky with fake blood, spider webs, ghouls and a faux severed hand!

Or, go a different route by including loving puns, favorite childhood candies and fun small decor items.

Whatever route you choose to go with your college student’s care package, they’ll just be happy that it came from YOU.

And keep in mind:

You don’t need to spend a lot to change someone’s mood in a positive way!

Just show them you’re thinking about them, and you’re already on the right track.
