Products I Hope To See In The Campus Trendsetters Spring “Self-Care Package”

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

The Campus Trendsetters “Welcome-Back-To-College” and “Spring Self-Care” packages are some of the many highlights of being in the Campus Trendsetters and Her Campus community. This last package in particular I felt really hit the mark, including items such as Command Strips, Tasty Bite microwaveable meals and some self-care products to help students stay fresh during the school year.

Here are the products that I am hoping to see in the spring box that I think would make for a great care package for college students:

Electronic Wipes or Computer Care-Kits

Being in college means that the majority of my life revolves around my electronics. Whether it is my phone, my laptop or my tablet, most of what needs to be accomplished is on a device. And those devices easily become gross.

Cleaning items for my electronic devices was one of the last things I thought of when back-to-school shopping until my family pointed out how marked up my laptop screen was. Sending any type of electronic cleaning wipe or computer care kit in a care package would be a great addition.

More Quick-Serve Meal Options

Whether you are in a dorm room or an apartment, having a quick-serve meal is a game changer during a busy day.

I was excited to open this year’s box to three microwaveable meal options to try out when I just do not have the time or energy to cook. In the spring I would love to see more of these meal options (specifically mac and cheese).

Scrub Daddy

Living in an apartment, I truly appreciate the sponges and cleaning supplies that have been sent in the past packages. However, being a fan of Scrub Daddy’s social media pages, it would be awesome to see a Her Campus and Scrub Daddy collab.

I would especially love to see a set of one of Scrub Daddy’s seasonal sponges or the Tangerine Clean paste.

Vitamin D Gummies

Even though it is called “Spring Semester,” classes start in the winter at the peak of the seasonal depression season. It is suggested by professionals that in order to combat this, taking a vitamin D supplement can be beneficial.

Providing a vitamin D supplement in gummy form would offer a great way to combat the dreariness that comes with colder weather and studying indoors.

[Always consult with a doctor before taking any supplements or vitamins.]

Good Molecules Skin Care

I have been a fan of the Yerba Mate Wake Up Eye Gel for over a year now.

I am just recently branching out to try more of Good Molecules skin care products as well because they are very affordable for my “broke-college-student” budget. Because of their affordable price point and high reviews, this brand would be a great collaboration to introduce in the spring box.

Pens and Pencils

When spring semester rolls around, I am lucky if I have one remaining pen left on me. From losing pens and pencils to running out of ink or lead, the lack of a writing utensil can be annoying.

Providing cute pens or pencils in the spring box would be a great school supply refresher to help students take notes for their new classes.

Option for a Graduation Gift for Seniors

Being a spring 2024 graduate myself, it would be cool to have the option to opt in for a special graduation gift since this will be the last Campus Trendsetters back-to-school package I will be able to sign up for. However, I am also a big fan of practical gifts, so I think it would be cool if there was something in the box that I could use in the future.

Whether that is a pot holder or whisk for a new apartment, or even a business card holder for venturing out into the real world, a practical graduation gift would be a great gesture to commemorate a member’s time as a Campus Trendsetter and in the Her Campus community.

No matter what is in the spring box from Campus Trendsetters, I know it will be a great one to open when the time comes. However, it would be cool to see some of these suggestions make it into that box when the new semester rolls around.
