College Care Package – Legacy Style

When sending your child off to college it can be a difficult transition. Sending them with a care package that includes memories from home will help assist them while being away, no matter how far.

Digital Camera and/or Camcorder will encourage your college student to document their new journey. Up until this point of their life most parents have taken on the role of preserving their child’s legacy but once they move off to college they will make many memories, meeting new friends, that they’ll want to capture.

Digital Photo Frame sits easily on a night stand or computer desk. With limited space in a dorm room the digital photo frame takes up the same amount of space as one standard frame yet offers the ability to view dozens of pictures. To give them the opportunity to relive family memories load it with family photos from special occasions or family vacations and toss in some photos of their best friends.

Transfer your old home movies to DVD for your college student to take on the road with them.  When they start to miss their family time after a long day of studying they can pop in the DVD and reminisce on the good times.  With YesVideo’s personal customization options you can combine all the funniest moments from your child’s life onto one DVD to give them a good laugh while away.

Personalized Stationery allows a college student to write short notes to send back home and to their friends that attend a different college. With email, text messages and Skype people often forget to purchase stationery to send a hand written note, however personalized letters are still very sentimental. Customization options could include the student’s last name or college logo.

Personal Favorites: Providing your college student with their favorite board game will keep the family game night memories alive while away at school. Include some of their favorite snacks or even mom’s home-baked cookies are a pleasant surprise. Having some of their favorite items from home will help them adjust to being away.

To help aide your student in their transition to college we are giving away one BluRay player. Most college students are on a low budget so watching movies in their dorm often times out trumps heading out to the theater. It’s also a great way to watch those family home movies to reminisce on pre-college days when they start to get home sick.
