Care Package Ideas from

This feature is in partnership with Gourmet Gift Baskets

When was the last care package you sent or received? Whether you are 9 or 99 there is no better feeling than a package of fun arriving just for you. Having a son in college we saw how appreciative he was when care packages were sent. In parent groups I learned about local eateries that delivered and even a student on campus would take cupcake orders and deliver to the dorms for birthdays or any reason you would choose which was a fun gig for her. I ordered cupcakes on our son’s birthday last year from her. is another option because right in their header menu is a link to care package ideas from the site. They will deliver by mail with a card that you can personalize and have attached.

This is the Triple Chocolate Caramel Popcorn Tin and it is so delicious. I had them send this to me to try their gourmet popcorns so I knew if it would be an option for future care packages. I can tell you it is perfect. You can add ice packs to your order if you choose or if you are cost-saver order popcorn for fall/winter gifts and it will deliver just fine without ice.

The Triple Chocolate Caramel Popcorn comes in 3 sizes – 1, 2 and 3.5 gallon sizes. There is a divider for 3 flavors contained inside. Included flavors:

  • White Chocolate Caramel
  • Milk Chocolate Caramel
  • Dark Chocolate Caramel
