If you have a son or know a young man who has either already headed back to school for the year or will be soon and you want to give them a little something to help them feel special I wanted to share with you some ideas from a Care Package I prepared for my oldest son.
My oldest goes to school locally so I do see him everyday 😉 but he also is working his way through school so there are days when he leaves the house to head to work by 4:45 a.m. and doesn't get home until late at night (sometimes he works before and after classes so he's only home to sleep).
Since he's running on empty a quick shower is usually all he has time for but being his mom I wanted to include some things in his care package to remind him to keep up with this appearance no matter how tired he is. First on the list was a package of Schick® Disposable Razors from Walmart. I shared in a previous post how I keep reminding my son to stay clean shaven to boost his confidence and also to make a good impression - he needs to always be ready because you never know when an opportunity will present itself. I also included a fresh smelling body wash, a body scrubber, some facial care products and some hair gel (he has crazy curly hair that needs to stay tamed!).
To keep him going physically I also wanted him to have some quick snacks to grab on the go....protein bars, his favorite drink, packaged crackers and some cookie sandwiches.
I pulled everything together in a handy metal tray that he can use after his snacks are gone (but he'll probably make sure I see it empty so I can fill it up again) and some metal buckets that can be used for holding supplies.
And just in case I notice he isn't keeping up with his shaving it doesn't hurt to throw some Schick® Disposable Razors on top of his backpack where he can't possibly miss them!
I'm sure he'll be looking for some info? and more care packages in the future!
