Parent’s Corner: Top 4 St. Patrick’s Day Care Packages

Read story

With green and gold lifting spirits during midterms and paper due dates, there is no better time than to say “I’m thinking of you” than the 17th of March. If you want to send some love to your college student but can’t do it in person, try these four favorite St Patrick’s Day themed care packages.


Leapin’ Leprechaun

Want to make your student’s friends green with envy? The Leapin’ Leprechaun package is the way to go! It’s stuffed with uniquely themed candies, such as Elfkins from Keebler, gold chocolates, and Double Mint gum. Then, there are favorite study snacks to help them make their own luck such as Sun Chips and Skittles. So whether they have a sweet or a salty tooth, the package’s got you covered. But for extra fun, the Leprechauns also added a personal touch with a green bead necklace and a pair of shamrock glasses so they’re not at risk of being pinched on the day of.


Blarney Charm

What’s “blarney” you ask? Blarney comes from the legend that if you kiss the Blarney stone in Ireland, you’re sure to be granted the “gift of gab” (or great talking skills). That’s why the Blarney Charm care package is made for your college student and their many presentations and oral reports! But instead of kissing a stone thousands of miles away, they can just chow down on their favorite, gold standard candies and treats! From cookies like Oreos and Chips Ahoy to chips such as Pringles and Doritos, your favorite college student won’t be more thankful to “luck into” such an awesome package!


St. Pat’s and More

Okay, St. Patrick’s Day is just one holiday, and it comes and goes so quickly. If you’re dedicated to giving your college student a thrill of a surprise on not just the 17th, why not go the extra mile and plan out the rest of the semester? With the St. Pat’s and More package, you’re not just getting a green filled box of goodies, but you’re also pre-ordering our favorite Easter and Spring Energy packages too!

Each one has some of your student’s most favorite snacks. For example, St. Patrick’s Day contains Charms Blow Pops, Chips Ahoy cookies, and a cute “Kiss Me, I’m Irish” button! Easter is filled to the brim with chocolate and Cadbury eggs, gummy carrots, and classic Jelly Belly Jelly Beans. And, just when they need it the most, they’ll receive a package made to boost spirits and lower study-related hunger pains with Smarties, Teddy Grahams, popcorn, and Nutella spread.


Mrs. Fields St. Patrick’s Day Forested Basket

But what if candy and chips aren’t your student’s thing? What if you want to surprise more than one student, such as a roommate or a study group? St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t just have to be about solo gifts! With the Mrs. Fields St. Patrick’s Day Frosted Basket, you can send everyone’s favorite themed cookies right to your student’s door. Good enough for 12, you can feed an entire village of Leprechauns!
