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. 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 truffle popcorn, peanut butter cups and a new tumbler --you can make that very gift in just a few clicks by using our College Gift Builder
  • They’re the easiest gifts you’ve ever made.

     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.

Common Types of College Care Packages: Off To A Great Start, Healthy Foods, Exam Survival and Thinking of You

    1. The beginning of the year Off To A Great Start care package sets the tone for the rest of the year. This most common type of care package sends love from home just when they're still finding their feet. Contents that boost their newfound independence might include practical items you realized during move-in that they still needed, sentimental items such as favorite foods, and healthy snacks. The most important part of this gift, however, is the personal note from home!
    2. Exam Survival Packages are also quite common, and should be timed to arrive 2 weeks before final exams when academic pressure is at its peak.  Coffee and healthy snacks are great study fuels to get them through this stressful period of the semester.  
    3. There's no limit on the amount of Healthy Snack Packs that a college student -- and their roommates and friends -- can consume during a semester. Balance nuts, dried fruits, teas and other healthy choices with a few treats such as cookies or chocolate.
    4. Finally, sometimes everyone just needs a little boost, especially when they're away from home.  Thinking Of You care packages might include grooming or fun items to make their dorm or apartment feel more cozy, attractive journals to make note-taking more fun.  Or if they're under the weather, you might include a Get Well care package to get them back on their feet.
