Heading off to college for the first time in filled with emotions: excitement, nerves, a little trepidation. When getting ready for the start of college, one thing is often overlooked — being prepared for when a sick bug strikes. Our college bound loved ones are used to having a well stocked medicine cabinet and family and friends to care for them when sick. Don’t let them be caught off guard as they head off to school this year, our healthy college care package will make a great start for the new freshman, or as a gift anytime of the year.
I’m proud to partner with CVS Pharmacy on this post for the CVS Health brand line. All opinions expressed are my own, and all product claims or program details shared should be verified at CVS.com or with the appropriate manufacturers.
Healthy College Care Package
Feel Better Quickly:
- Pain Relief
- Vapor tablets
- Cold/flu relief
Send them off with the essentials for when a cold or other bug strikes. With a new experience, location, and a busy schedule ahead of them, your student is likely to get sick several times their first semester.
- Probiotic Gummies
- Daily Vitamins
Add some vitamins to keep their immune system up. Their change in diet and mealtimes can affect their energy levels and overall health.
Good oral hygiene can make a big difference in staying healthy overall. These essentials need to be restocked often, so will be greatly appreciated by your college student.
Other Health Essentials:
- CVS gift card
These extras will help them be prepared, whatever might come up. Especially a gift card to let them fill in the gaps or restock on supplies as needed.
I found everything I was looking for with CVS Brand health care line. It was a great way to save money and be able to put more towards my college bound loved one! The CVS Brand health products could be found all throughout the store. Of course in the medicine and vitamin section, but also in general well being and health care including bandages and toothpaste and more! I even picked up the cute teal reusable tote at CVS. It was perfect for bundling up this healthy care package and will provide storage and organization when the college student is ready to repurpose the tub.
CVS Pharmacy had everything I needed, making it a quick one-stop shopping experience to treat my loved one before they head off to college. I’m so excited to gift this basket, that may not seem overly exciting as a gift, but will be a gift they will depend on when I can’t be near to care for them.
