Whether you have a son, granddaughter, cousin or friend who is in college, sometimes it’s fun to send a special care package to a college student “just because”. But in all honesty, it’s not always convenient to box up a huge care package, drive it to the mailbox and pay for shipping. Thankfully, Amazon has an awesome way to solve this problem! By combining the AmazonWishList, your twitter account and a membership to Amazon Prime, you can save money and share some love with a college student with just a few clicks of the mouse!
Using Amazon WishList to Create College Care Packages
Think about when you were in college. I know it’s probably been a while. But do you remember the feeling of pride when your room looked perfect and homey? When I was in college, my roommate and I worked very hard to make sure our room always provided us a place to relax. We would rearrange the twin beds frequently to create a new look and switch up our meager furnishings. It wasn’t fancy, but it was sure fun to let our room be a fun place for all our friends to come hang out. But I have to tell you, our room always looked neat and clean. We took pride in never looking like ‘that room’.
But not all college students keep their room looking neat and clean. Sometimes college students need a little help keeping clean and being organized. In case you have a college student whose room looks more like this mess than a home, then I have some great gift ideas for you! If you have Amazon Prime like I do, then you already know how easy it is to order on Amazon and have a package delivered in just 2 days! Talk about easy!
Ideas for College Care Packages
- Beverage Containers: Brita Pitchers, mugs, water bottles
- Cleaning Supplies: Clorox Disinfectant Wipes, Clorox Sprays,
- Silly Gifts: Silly String, Glow Sticks
- Laundry Items: Clothes Hamper, Detergent,
Remember that college lodging is no longer always the standard dorm room. Many students are now housed in apartments with full kitchens and laundry options that they are responsible for. Buying bottled water can become too expensive on some college budgets. Give college students a different water option. Brita Pitchers offer a great way to provide clean water that tastes great in a convenient format. Save $2.00 when you buy Brita Pitchers online.
- 10 cup water filtration pitcher with 1 filter
- Reduces chlorine taste and odor, zinc taste, copper, mercury and cadmium, often found in tap water
- 1 filter can replace 300 standard 16.9 ounce water bottles
- BPA-free pitcher with easy-fill lid and comfort grip handle
- Electronic indicator tracks when to change the water filter
College students are typically not concerned with keeping their dorms and apartments free of germs or dust. Give them an easy way to disinfect and stay healthy. Clorox Disinfectant Wipes are easy to use to clean a variety of surfaces and kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria.
Clorox Disinfectant Wipes: New and improved packaging contains value pack of three 75 count canisters of disinfecting wipes in 2 scents: 2 Citrus Blend, 1 Fresh Scent
