Christmas Care Package for Law Students

Christmas care package

My college best friend is currently in the Midwest with her other half studying for their law degree. I caught the traveling bug due to them. We've traveled to several big cities together and my most memorable time was when I stayed in Washington D.C. for a week. She interned at a newspaper publication and I got a chance to tour the area. I tried Ethiopian food for the first time (which i immediately loved) and took in the National Mall sights.

Anyways, it's finals and Christmas season and since I was baking cookies I thought it would be nice to send a care package. I looked around for ideas to send in a care package so here is my list:

  • Homemade cookies
  • Snowman cups (because I was afraid a mug might break) to fill...
  • Starbucks VIA coffee and Peppermint mocha
  • Various teas like chamomile
  • Starbucks gift card
  • Chocolate covered coffee beans
  • Lizano sauce (from my trip to Costa Rica, a great condiment for rice and beans)
  • Pumpkin flavored Hershey's kisses
  • Chocolate Santa
  • Instant Chinese milk tea
  • A small nutcracker ornament 
  • Reindeer antlers for his and her
I think the best part was wrapping the interior of the box and I trimmed the edges with candy cane garland. It makes the care package a little more festive without looking too blah. I got a happy phone call from the couple when the package arrived.

I love the festive touches you added to the box, I just may have to steal that. So glad to have caught up with you, had a fabulous time. Those lucky students will enjoy I'm sure. Hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday.
