4 Things to Send Your Best Friend in a Care Package

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Cal Lutheran chapter.

Who says it has to be a holiday or special occasion to brighten up one of your best friend’s day? I’ve found sending little gifts or a card randomly throughout the year is one of the best ways to surprise your friends, where he or she least expects it — their mailboxes.

Be sure to customize: The most important thing to remember when you pick out the items is to send meaningful things like his or her favorite candy, candle or CD.

Here are a few good ideas to get you started:

1. A Cal Lu teddy bear ($15, bookstore)

They are so cute! Plus the little T-shirt on them says, “Somebody at Cal Lutheran Loves Me!”

2. Cookies ($4, Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s)

College is stressful, so food is always appreciated. I like Tate’s because there are so many options — gluten free, chipless, chocolate chip… You name it!

3. A CD ($9, Starbucks)

Right now they are selling Katy Perry’s Prism at Starbucks on campus!

4. A movie ($5, Target)

Target has so manyclassic options, including 17 Again, Mean Girls, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Never Been Kissed and She’s the Man.
