Every once in awhile I like to send my son little packages with some treats in them when he's away at college. I know a lot of moms like to do this for their kids and John likes getting packages, who doesn't? Even though he's a big of a tough guy he likes being remembered.
Here are a couple of gift ideas to send your student when he or she is away at college. These ideas are super affordable (each one is less than $10. shipped to your student) and the companies are all small businesses that are family owned and operated. I am a big supporter of small family businesses!
