Summer break for college students is such a tease. You go from being five minutes away from your best friends to being hours away from them. You try as hard as you can to stay in touch through FaceTime and endless group texts. Care packages are things that college students adore and always want, so here are a few ideas of what to include in a car package to your long distance best friend,
1. A handwritten letter.
Handwritten letters are basically on the verge of extinction, but they are such a heart warming item. Include a handwritten letter about how much you miss them, memories from the past year, and funny stories that have happened since the last time you guys saw each other.
2. A tacky tourist gift from your state.
The tack tourist gifts are so cheesy, that they never fail to put a smile on someone's face. Include a tacky tourist gift to put a smile on your best friend's face while also giving them an item that is going to remind them of you!
3. Their favorite candy.
By including their favorite candy, it shows that you still remember the little things that they like and it will guarantee to warm their hearts.
4. Sticky notes with a countdown.
Include a countdown for when you guys will next see each other! You can easily decorate sticky notes, and it will be a cute decoration on their wall.
5. A pack of Kleenex.
Because there is a pretty high chance that they will cry while going through the car package!
6. Make the care package themed.
If your friend is feeling down, send them a sunshine themed care package or if they aren't feeling well send them a get well soon care package.
7. Some dry food.
Send a few packs of popcorn or some Ramen.
8. School supplies.
Over the summer, if your best friend is back at school taking summer classes, send them some of their favorite pens, Red Bull for finals week, and index cards.
9. Fake flowers.
Nothing brightens up someone's day more than flowers. Real flowers are going to die in the box so send them some fake flowers.
10. Sunscreen and chapstick.
Nobody wants their best friend to be burnt and you probably going to know that they forgot to bring sunscreen. Also nobody likes chapped lips and you can never have too many chapsticks.
11. A picture of you two.
Send your best friend a picture of you two! It is a very simple gesture that will guarantee to warm their hearts.
