The Perfect College Care Package

If you feel like you can’t find a healthy and fun care package for your college student, you’re not alone. It seems as though most care packages are full of junk food or they aren’t items your son or daughter would actually like to receive. It can be tough to find the perfect care package.

One mom saw this struggle in her own life and decided to do something about it. Lauren Irvin and her daughter (a college student!) created CampusCube so parents would have healthy options for care packages to send to college students. Full of delicious, healthy snacks, fun gadgets, and personalized notes, these cubes can also be used as storage! “The lid of each cube is perforated and has pop-up handles to provide stackable storage reminiscent of milk crates. Each cube includes a binder clip that can be used to clip the boxes together to create a makeshift shelf,” one interview stated.

But the best part of these packages is the sender’s ability to add a personalized note in the care package. This is the perfect option for parents, grandparents, coaches, aunts and uncles, and anyone else who wants to send some encouragement.

CampusCube offers a large variety of care package options throughout the year. So we asked college students what they thought of some care package cubes. Here’s what they said.

Anytime Cube

This is great because it has delicious snacks, but also includes other needed items. The gadgets like a smartphone wallet, razor, shower wipes, and so on are great to receive as a college student. The food is also encouraging – but also easy to stick in a backpack on the way to the library for a healthy snack! 

Anytime Cube for Girls and Anytime Cube for Guys are both available.

The Sunshine Cube

Hello Sunshine! Send a warm embrace full of tropical treats, pampering goodies, a great pair of Nectar Sunglasses and some fun flamingo accessories. Whether your favorite student is going on spring break, or just needs a pick-me-up, this Cube is guaranteed to bring a smile. Every college student will smile opening this box.

The Birthday Cube

Birthday care packages are the best for college students! Especially for college freshmen, it can feel sad to be away from home on your birthday. But these birthday cubes are the perfect way to say “I love you and I’m thinking of you” on their special day. It is even complete with crowns, party horns, Happy Birthday Cake Topper Banner, cake cookies, and more! But the best part is the personalized card you can include to send your own birthday wishes and love.

Every college student agreed though that the best part of these care packages is the personalized notes. Some of the favorite messages we saw were:

  • “Just cause I love you!”
  • “I’m so grateful you are my son. It has been a blessing being your mother.”
  • “This box is packed with lots of hugs and kisses!”
  • “Good luck on finals! You can do it! We are so proud of you. Can’t wait to see you next week.”
  • “Good luck this week. We love you and think of you every minute, every hour and every day!”

Whatever the message, be sure to include some of your own love and thoughts in these care packages. They are sure to love this perfect care package!
