No matter how old we are or how many times we face something new, change and new beginnings can be difficult and stressful and at the very least, these times are filled with anticipation, nerves, and anxious feelings.  Starting college or heading back to campus after a summer away is no exception.  College is an exciting stage in a young person’s life and they should feel confident and good about themselves as they embark on this time.  One way to help your college student feel confident is to make sure they are prepared for the days and weeks ahead.

I remember heading off to my first year of college almost 20 years ago.  I was going to be at school more than 5 hours away from home.  We packed so carefully and planned for weeks before my big move.  I remember my mom and dad loading up the car and driving me since I was a first year student and I wasn’t able to have a car on campus.  I knew I’d be at campus for at least a month before a trip home and I was nervous about having everything I needed.  I should have known not to worry because my mom knew just what I would need and took good care of me from far away, sending care packages at just the right times.

Schick Hydro 5 from Walmart Back to College Care Package

As your college student heads off to his or her first year of college they are probably going to forget some things and as mom you’ll know just what they need like my mom did.  Even if they haven’t forgotten anything sending them a care package might be just what they need those first weeks.

I wanted to be sure the care package I put together was fun and practical.  I wanted some things I knew my son needed but also some things he’d be surprised to find. I know he worries about looking his best and with him also being in the Air Force I know his shave is really important.  Shaving a lot can leave skin irritated and cause break outs and that can leave anyone feeling less than their best.  He needs a razor like the Schick® Xtreme 3® that will keep his skin hydrated and free from irritation. My husband and I recently tried this disposable razor and we loved it. I knew our son would appreciate this gift included in his care package.

I also wanted him to remember to take time to relax and unwind.  I added a set of ear buds he can use when listening to music or on his computer.  I added a portable hard drive and pre-loaded it with some of his favorite music.  There’s lots of room for more music but more importantly for his homework and pictures he’ll take as he makes amazing memories. I also included a book from one of his favorite authors.

If you’re putting together a care package for your college student remember to put in the necessities. Shaving products are an integral part of how your student will feel every day.  I know that I want my son feeling confident and I’m sure you feel the same.  Schick disposable razors are an affordable way to help whether it’s mom paying or picking them up on a college student’s budget.  These Schick Hydro 5’s were only $9.97 at Walmart.

If your student is too busy to shop for their personal care products, remind them that Walmart.com is an easy affordable way to have what you need sent directly to them.
