They say the pen is mightier than the sword, but what about when you need to do a crossword puzzle or write and rewrite the opening line of your magnum opus to get it JUST right? You'd better turn to good old graphite. This gift is a simple pencil and paper set that promises hours of entertainment and creativity. It includes a sleek black Moleskine notebook and a box of twelve Palomino Blackwing 602 pencils, both favored tools of right-brained people everywhere, and a set of retro paper games like Dots & Boxes and Tic-Tac-Toe (perfect for airplane rides and long waits at the DMV). This gift also comes with a specialty pencil sharpener to keep your Blackwing 602 in tip-top shape.

College Care Packages 101: Don't Call It Bribery

Mom and Dad, your back-to-school assignment is this: make sure your college student calls home, and do it in the most creative and adoring way possible. We gave you the lowdown in our blog about how to make a great care college package for your college student (hint: use what you know, follow our three formulas, browse college care gift sets when you get stuck).

In case you need more convincing to send a Knack care package, here’s the Cliffsnotes version of what makes ours special:

  • Knack care packages are high quality.

     Consider us the anti vending machine. We source delicious, non-perishable snacks that are (mostly) healthy. You’ve practically got that Most Valuable Parent award locked down already.
  • They’re as unique as your student.

     Our college care package ideas and possibilities are endless. If your kid wants shower gel, gummy bears, and a stapler --you can make that very gift in just a few clicks. On the other hand, if she’s a fervent letter writer who lives for color-coordinated notes, there’s an easy gift set for her, too.
  • They’re the easiest gifts you’ve ever made.

     Browse our curated gift sets to find care package ideas for your college kid and swap items to customize until it’s perfect, or send a handpicked collection of gifts from our care package products. Write a personal note and we’ll include it with a custom booklet in their gift, which we pack beautifully. Give us an important deadline ahead of time, and we’ll even make sure their gift is delivered exactly when you want it to arrive--in time for their final exams or the first Halloween away from home. Basically, we do everything but their laundry.
