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).
