It is hard on both Mom and the young students who are away at college during the Easter holidays. But you as a Mom can make your students Easter enjoyable with just these little things. The best way to start out with an Easter package for a college student is the traditional Easter basket. This will be a delight to remind your son/daughter of the Easter’s of the past. Of course, this basket has to be filled with some candy of their liking. A chocolate Easter Bunny, maybe even some hard boiled colored eggs, homemade cookies, or any other candy that they like will bring a big smile to your student’s face. Can you picture them now, sitting there munching on their favorite candy?
The Good Ole Mug
People of all ages use a mug for many different things. What student wouldn’t like to have one that Mom picked out? The mug works well for so many different things, coffee, hot chocolate, soda, and even pencils. This mug can also be filled with candy or hot chocolate packages. Every time it is used they will think of you.
The Needed Hygiene Items
A little help with hygiene items is always appreciated. Things like chap stick, a new comb, toothpaste, or even their favorite soap. These are a must for everyone and it helps to have a little extra on hand. Students will thank you for thinking of these little items as it can save them time running to the store.
A Little Fun
If your student doesn’t have a CD player this would be a great gift for them. If they do have one, some CD’s of their favorite music will brighten their day. Other ideas are a MP3 player or an IPod. Music isn’t the only way to go. A good Frisbee for them to have some fun and exercise is a great way for them to spend their free time. A new pair of sunglasses or even a hat will be appreciated on some days.
Those Needed School Supplies
Even though a student may not want to receive those, school supplies are always welcome. It may just be pens or paper but those are items that will be used.
Small items of clothing would fit into a basket also and we know how everyone can use clothes. A funny t-shirt would brighten anyone’s day.
There are many things that a Mom can send to their son/daughter who is away at college. This is just a few of the many things that will bring a smile to a student’s face. The Easter basket filled with goodies, a mug that will be used over and over, the must have hygiene items, and items to make their time at college a little fun. This can all be topped off with a beautiful Easter card from you. The stores have many to choose from or you might get creative and make one yourself. What joy a homemade card from Mom would be. Once the card has been bought or made and signed with love from you, then the envelope could be decorated to bring more smiles to your students face. Adding a bunch of pictures of the family and friends would be another delight to your son/daughter. Who says a student can’t enjoy their Easter holiday while they are at college. They will be receiving love and Easter from Mom.
