College is packed with fun and challenges.
For freshmen, going to college means saying goodbye to families, friends and those they love back at home. They have to learn to live on their own in a complete strange place while fighting homesickness.
For scholars going back to college, it means facing with endless papers, courses and pressure again.
If your Significant Other is in another college, chances are you may struggle to keep your long distance relationship strong. Studies have found that sending physical gifts or care packages can make up the lack of presence in a long distance relationship.
And it will also take away the stress from hustle and bustle of everyday college life.
So here you go. We’ve gathered some of the best college care package ideas in this post. And we’ve also listed the recommended items for the care packages.
Feel free to save the ideas or make your own!
