Amazing Halloween Care Packages to Try This Fall
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!
Because I’m always so happy to just 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.
35 Halloween Care Package Ideas
No matter what’s inside a care package, it can help ease feelings of loneliness freshman students may be experiencing.
But with a holiday coming up, why not add a little creativity to the package?

Or, go a different route by including loving puns, favorite childhood candies and some fun Halloween dorm decorations.
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. Down below you’ll find 35 Halloween themed college care packages to inspire your own.
