Final Exam Care Package Ideas for College Students

Finals can be a stressful time for high school and college students. Send some encouragement and an emotional boost for their exams with a care package created just for them.


What should I include in a Finals Care Package?

A mixture of treats, nourishing foods, useful supplies, and tools for relaxation. Things like office supplies, study tools, gift cards, self-care items (face masks, aromatherapy, cozy socks), and food are great additions for a finals survival kit care package.

    • Healthy snacks like nuts, dried fruit or dark chocolate.
    • Vitamins Emergen-C or Gummy Vitamins for an immunity boost.
    • Caffeine a Starbucks gift card is always nice, but you can also include coffee and tea packs.

    • Gift Cards you can reward their hard work by treating them to a lunch or dinner gift cards like SubwayChipotle, Pizza Hut etc. are good options.



    There are many options here. You can purchase a cute gift box or take a regular shipping box and wrap the inside with wrapping paper, but our favorite way is to use a Care Package Sticker Kit.
