HELP: College Care Package for SIL

Sooo, it all started with these super cute homemade magnets. With the help of a friend I made some from my SIL - thought they'd be cute for her fridge in her dorm.

Now I want to turn it into a full on care package. If I'm going to ship something I want to make it worth while.

I figured I send:

    2 Cans of chili from a local chili place
    ... and that's all I got.

What should I send?

I wanted to make a corny mixed tape. But do people have cassette players anymore? Geeked

Ideas ladies? She went away 3 weeks ago fully stocked with essentials. I just want this to be a cute, I haven't forgotten about you yet package. :)

  • Gift card to a coffee place?  Movie ticket gift certificate? Not sure about her financial situation, but I was on a TIGHT budget in college and those things were golden.

    Or you can be awesome and send her a fake id. Stick out tongue

  • Lip gloss

    nail polish

    easy mac

    fun post it notes (not the plain yellow squares)

    funny/cute card she can hang by her desk

  • i agree cookies, easy mac, 

    maybe microwave individual cakes/brownies, panera/strbucks/ben and jerrys gift card, crystal light 

  • definitely quarters if she has to do her own laundry--it is such a pain to find them!
    Blog Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker image
    16 read! my read shelf:
    Amy's book recommendations, liked quotes, book clubs, book trivia, book lists (read shelf)
  • I agree with the homemade baked goods, if at all possible.  Easy mac is another good idea.  Yum!!

    I always loved getting quarters when I was in college.

    That's all I can think of outside of the essentials that she probably just got 3 weeks ago when she left.

    • Microwave popcorn
    • Quarters
    • Highlighters
    • Post-it flags
    • Pens (blue, black and red)
    • If she doesn't have one, a shower caddy (assuming she is in a dorm) and maybe a cheap pair of flip flops too
    • Tide stain stick
    • Starbucks gift card
    • Hand sanitizer
    • Good tea bags (if she drinks tea)
