Hey guys! Today I'm partnering with Bigelow Tea and Target to share an awesome DIY! Being a college senior, I know how awesome getting care packages can be. I wanted to get a little gift for each of my roommates after moving in, and I decided to make them both a mini college care package! Lord knows us college kids love caffeine, so tea is a great addition to any college care package!
Target was the best place to shop for something like this! Not only do they have a great selection of Bigelow tea (they had tons of different flavors!), but their $1 section is a great place for fun little things to throw into a care package! For my roommates, I chose Bigelow's 'Constant Comment' tea, which includes flavors like orange rinds and sweet spice. It's the perfect mix of delicious, relaxing taste, with a hint of caffeine to keep you going through those study sessions!
What To Include:
The best thing about this DIY is that it's so open ended; you can essentially add anything you want! For my roommates, I grabbed a few useful things, like pens, washi tape, and hand sanitizer, and a few fun things like the mini gel pens, nail polish and the bubbles! And of course, I threw in some tea for those times you need to relax & focus. Plus, these cute little polka-dot metal pails were perfect containers (and they were only $1 each!)
Some other things that could go in a care package like this: snacks, gum, tampons, ibuprofen, cough drops, note cards, shampoo & conditioner, candles, coffee mugs, magazines...the list goes on!
All in all, my roommates loved their packages! Even though they were small, they were so excited about them! They loved the tea so much, they even said they would buy it in the future for themselves!
If you're interested in Bigelow tea, you can find them on Facebook and Twitter! Thanks for reading :)
If you're in college, what would you love to see in a care package? Or if you're not, what would you put in one? I'd love to hear!
