Care Packages for You or Your College Kid

It’s almost that time of year where you send off the kid back to school! Can you believe it? How long ago was it when you cradled them in your arms or walked them into class for their first day of kindergarten?


Regardless of whether it’s your adult child’s first year of their undergraduate or if it’s their last year in grad school, sending your child off to school will always be bittersweet. They’re happy for their freedom and you’re still trying to convince them to stay home.


At the end of the day, they’ve made the choice to pursue their post-secondary education and as a parent, you’re always there to support them. At Peter and Paul’s Gifts, we understand how stressful school can be for your kid or how hard it is to prepare for your child to leave home; that’s why we’ve got Care Packages perfect for either your child or perfect for you!


Self Love

Being a student is definitely stressful, especially if you’re away from home! As a parent, the absence of your child at home can also be really stressful.


Our Self Love gift basket is perfect for whether you or your child needs some stress relief and self-love. We’ve added some comforting snacks like Alemany Caramelized Hazelnuts, Laid Back Snacks Hearty Tamari, Greek Kourabie Biscuits with Almonds, and Granolust Savory Granola Clusters. We’ve also added a Smoothie Tumbler, perfect for staying hydrated or bringing your smoothie on the go!


Lastly, during stressful times, one of the most helpful things you can do for yourself is to write your thoughts out. We’ve included a Wellness Journal to help you get started on your self-love.
