When your child goes away to college, it can be a big adjustment for everyone. For your child, it is their first time out on their own. While they may seem to have it all together, they probably have a lot of questions and concerns. Where am I going to live? Will college work really be that hard? Are my classmates going to like me? How am I going to afford everything? By sending them a care package, you let them know that someone back at home is thinking of them. Whether they are attending college far away or close by, sending a care package is a great way to show your love and support. Here are some ideas.

  • Notes from family and friends
    • Share your words of wisdom and encouragement. Remember back to when you were a college student. Offer tips and advice for making it on your own. 
  • Late night study session snacks
    • Protein bars, homemade cookies, hot chocolate packets, favorite candies, canned goods, and crackers 
  • Photos and trinkets 
    • Special photos and family trinkets ???
  • Gift cards and cash
    • College is expensive and living on your own for the first time can be a major financial adjustment and learning experience. A little financial help is a nice gesture if it is something you're able to do. 
  • Organization
    • For the college student with a full schedule, it helps to have some handy items to keep you on track. Planners, calendars, notepads, pens, highlighters, folders, and other like items always get put to good use.
  • Toiletries 
    • Shampoo, razors, shaving cream, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush, hand lotion, sanitizer, etc. 
  • Entertainment 
    • For when they have some down time how about some playing cards, electronic games, batteries, iPod, speakers, CDs, or movies?

Custom packaging and crating is often the clear choice when it comes to shipping. Peace of mind comes from knowing that your items are properly packaged in something that was custom made to offer a safe and secure fit. By choosing custom packaging and crating, your items are snug which offers no wiggle room for breaking, cracking, or other damage that has been known to occur in the shipping process. For items of an irregular shape or of high value, custom packaging and crating is especially recommended. When the shipped item is received by the other party, the item is still in the condition which it was when it left your care. The package looks professional, neat, and clean. This reflects positively on you and if you are a seller or a business owner, you have a good reputation to uphold. Another benefit, maybe not as often considered, is the green effect of choosing custom. The perfect amount of packaging and crating material is used and not an inch more, providing much less to be disposed of. Less material also means less weight which could mean lower costs for you. If you have important items to ship, consider choosing custom packaging, crating, and shipping from an established company with a solid reputation for providing quality service.

If you are planning to ship electrically charged devices such as laptops or mobile phones, you will want to make sure that they are protected from electrostatic discharge. Electrostatic discharge occurs when electricity travels between two devices. The problem with this is that is can cause heat damage as well as damage to the electronic circuitry. You can think of this occurrence like a very small lightening bolt. An electrostatic discharge, just like a lightening bolt, needs to find a path to travel through. You can keep your devices safe by making sure that your devices are being shipped in the proper packaging. Packaging should be made up of anti-status material which includes wraps, barriers, and cushioning.
