So Blue Without You - College Care Package

Care Package

Are you feeling BLUE now that your college kid is back at school?  I know I am and was looking for something fun to send.  I’ve seen a few different versions of the “Blue without You” care package on Pinterest, but decided to put a gift card spin on it.   Because, let’s face it, a college kids’ favorite things to get are GIFT CARDS!   

I gathered up a few favorite blue packaged snacks and treats and added gift cards from favorite places around campus. (Sharable snacks are fun for the roommates, too.)  I tried to stay with the blue theme for the gift cards, but that was kind of difficult.  So, I added blue paper as a card holder with a note on the back of each gift card.  For example, I wrote:

  • For when you need a sweet treat (Dairy Queen),
  • For when you need a break from the cafeteria (Chipotle),
  • For when you need a pick me up (Starbucks)

This idea was fast, EASY and my college kid loved it! (and so, did the roommates).

Wow Your Graduate

This is the time of year there are so many occasions to shop for: Graduations, Birthdays, Weddings and Father’s Day.  Whoever you’re shopping for they will absolutely LOVE these gift card ideas.

These ideas are great ideas for a couple of reasons:  They allow the convenience of using gift cards as a gift, you can make your gift unique, creative and personal for your recipient, and THEY ARE SOOO EASY AND FUN TO MAKE!

Idea #1: - The Gift Card Initial

Wow Your Graduate

Use the person’s initial: Clip notes, pictures and gift cards to it.

Supplies Needed:

  • Initial
  • Mini clothes pins
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Spray paint (optional)
  • Gift Cards

 

Steps:

  1. Spray paint your initial.  (Do this outside in an area away from anything the spray paint can get on.)
  2. After the paint is dry, place your mini clothes pins on the initial.  Try some different placements and see what works for the items you plan to clip.
  3. Glue the mini clothes pin to the initial.
  4. Clip on your gift cards, pictures or notes.

 

Idea #2: - Pop Me a Gift Card

Wow Your Graduate

Surprise your recipient with balloons filled with gift cards, confetti, personal notes and fun little gifts.

Supplies Needed:

  • Balloons
  • Storage Bin (for the Dorm Room -  optional)
  • Sharpie Marker
  • Gift Cards
  • Confetti (optional)
  • Personal Notes (optional)

 

Steps:

  1. Stretch the balloon over the gift card and carefully work the balloon to fit over the gift card.
  2. Blow up the balloon and tie close.  (you can also fill your balloons with helium).
  3. Repeat for the desired number of balloons you want to give.  You can fill your balloons with confetti, handwritten notes or more gift cards.
  4. Write “Pop Me” on your balloons.
  5. Use a storage bin that can later be used in a dorm room to “wrap” your balloons.  You can also put them in a gift bag.  Or, you can give your helium filled gift card balloons in a balloon bouquet.
