It seems like just yesterday you brought your little bundle of joy home from the hospital and then you blinked and it seems like their first tooth, entire grade school career, first school dance, and high school graduation all happened in that one instant…and now Junior’s off to college!
Dry your eyes. It may seem like your student went skipping down the driveway, without so much as a wave goodbye, but give them a minute. They’ll wake up one day soon and realize how much they miss you. As always, you’ll be there to save the day with the ultimate freshman care package!
1. Things they miss from home
·Framed photos of the family and beloved pets
·Mom’s famous chocolate chip cookies
·A favorite teddy bear from their room
·That cozy blanket for movie nights
·Their favorite coffee mug
·Articles from the local paper about people and places they know
2. Help soften the financial blow
3. For everyday college life
4. Just because you love them
5. For exam time
Each of these ideas only takes a few minutes to put together and don’t cost very much. But the sentiment and love will be felt from many miles away!
