Valentine Care Package ideas for college niece

Recommended Posts

I'm going to put together a Valentine care package to send to my niece in college. I am going to put in some Valentine panties, a Sonic gift card, and microwave popcorn, but I am looking for some other ideas. Her roommate is "dieting" so my sil said to keep sweets such as candy to a minimum - no more than one bag. I'm sending this to my niece, not her roommate, but, whatever. So, since treats are "limited" I need some other thoughts. I want it to be fun and festive, so cute packaging ideas are also welcome!

 

TIA!

 

ETA: She is NOT a girlie girl at all, so jewelry won't work.

Of course, all of the above in fun/holiday patterns/packages. I don't have any great packaging ideas--sorry! I usually just put the items in a gift bag or box w/holiday-themed tissue paper.

Am jealous - I only have a BOY in college and he would NOT welcome such a care package from him mom ;)

My son always welcomes a care package, but he doesnt eat sweets.

His birthday is two weeks after valintines day so he always gets a combined box.

Just wanted to say when I was in college my mom sent me a Valentine Care package. Getting any mail at all was so exciting when I was in school - not just for the recipient but for all her friends as well. So when an actual package arrived, I was asked by my friends to open it so they could share in the fun too. We were headed to lunch after checking our mail so I opened it in the dining hall.

 

Well, I pulled out the candy and then saw some valentine fabric tucked in there. I thought perhaps it was a scarf or a hankie, so quickly whipped it out and displayed for everyone in the dining hall a beautiful pair of valentine undies. I was mortified but my friends got a good hearty laugh out of it.

 

Soooo - label the package "Open in your dorm room!":D

You all have given me some great suggestions! Love the stuff from the Popcorn factory, but I think it is too "treat-ish" for her dieting roomie. I will definitely keep that in mind for other gifts though. Their packaging looks really nice.
