Did you send a loved one off to college this year? My husband and I mentor high school students through Young Life, so we’ve seen countless kids transition to college every year. One great way to care for a college student in your life is to send them a care package. I’ve hand delivered care packages to students we mentor who go to school close by, but that’s not an option for most people. Today I’m sharing a few easy tips for creating college student care packages using Amazon Wish List.

When I went off to college, I thought I was a full grown adult fully capable of taking care of myself. Not so much, people. I was pretty much a disaster the first semester. Learning to live on your own (or in a dorm filled with other semi-adults) is challenging and fun and there are distractions aplenty. I even ruined the one good sauce pan I had by burning a pot of macaroni and cheese.
My friends and I our senior year as well got ready to head off to college. I was such a mess.
If your loved one in college needs a little motivation and encouragement as they transition to adulthood, sending regular care packages can be a big help. Knowing they have people who support them means so much.
Sending care packages has never been easier with the help of Amazon Wish List. Simply set up an account with Amazon, click “create a wish list”, and give it a name. Add in your loved one’s favorite items and send it to them every month with a click of a button. Does your college kid burn mac and cheese like I did? Send them KRAFT Easy Mac Cups. They can make it in under 4 minutes and KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner Cups have the same great taste as the original. With finals coming up, Planters Dry Roasted Peanuts are a perfect nutritious snacks for studying.
Connect your Amazon and Twitter accounts to make #AmazonWishList even easier to use. Whenever you see a tweet with an Amazon link to something you want to add, reply with the hash tag #AmazonWishList and the item will be added for you. If your college student tweets about something they would love to have, you can set up a surprise for them in seconds without visiting a store or the post office.
