Your college student is settled into dorm life and working hard on papers, speeches, and keeping up with laundry. You have settled into an empty or emptier nest and are ready to send a Fall Box to let your awesome kid know how much you love them!

What To Put In A Fall Box For College Students

Preferably, anything you put in a box for your college student should be something you know they will use, eat, or love. Space is a huge commodity for them so needless stuff will be a waste and end up in the trash.

Listed below are Fall Box Ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

These are actual items I sent to my very own college freshman and these items fit snugly in a Priority Mail Regional Rate Box – B1.

Organic Granola Cereal, Pumpkin Seed + Flax

My daughter has said it is much easier to eat breakfast in her room before she heads off to class. This Pumpkin Seed + Flax Granola will be a fun fall breakfast for her!

Organic Pumpkin Pie Toaster Pastry

For another fall breakfast idea!

Nabisco Belvita Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Biscuits

Alright, these just looked festive. I have no idea if they’re any good. I’ll let you know what I hear!

Apple Cider

A warm drink on a cold fall night. What’s better than that?

Mrs. Meyer’s Fall Scented Hand Soap

Hey, they can USE it AND it’s festive! Woot!

My daughter actually requested hand soap so … there you go!

Pumpkin Seeds

YUM! What a great snack to munch on as they work on papers, tucked up at their desks, under their loft beds.

Lentil Soup

There’s nothing like a bowl of soup on a rainy fall night. Especially when you can’t fathom a walk to the cafeteria in the pouring rain.

Kind Minis

We sent a few Kind Bars in our daughter’s first box and had a request for more!

This time we’ve sent full size Kind Bars and Kind Minis!

4X4 Pumpkin

This 4X4 Pumpkin is handmade! If you aren’t about the trouble to make a 4X4 Pumpkin, a mini pumpkin will do!

Just a little something to put on the windowsill that says fall!

Nerf Football

Because what says fall more than football?

Give your college student a reason to take a break and get out and play with their new friends!

Here’s another option: Foam Football

Miniature Candy

Bite size candy fills the Fall Box in quite nicely!

Fall Printables

Print the Fall Printables on card stock or sticker paper and adhere to the inside flaps of your Fall Box! (I put the pumpkin in the bottom of the box.)

You DID IT! You created a Fall Box your college student will be super happy to have. A box that will take them away from the busy and put a smile on their face! You ROCK!
