With classes starting up next week and move-ins underway, I’m way behind on putting together care packages for my friends. I love the idea of packing up a few fun gifts, decorating a cute box, and sending it off to my out of town friends!
The hardest part for me is just figuring out what to put in them, which is why I was super excited to receive a package of my own from BabbleBoxx full of things any college girl would appreciate getting. After moving into my apartment earlier this week, I immediately found a use for all of these things, so the “Campus Shevival” theme was totally fitting!

I was so excited to see this camera in my box. It’s been on my wishlist for a while now, and I’m excited to snap some photos downtown tonight! This camera is the latest model to join the INSTAX Mini series that produce credit-card-size photos instantly (perfect for party favors!), and it even has a selfie mode that adjusts the settings to keep you looking cute! If you check out the picture below, you’ll notice it also has a front-facing mirror, so you don’t have to guess where you’re aiming the camera either.
Considering these prints are ready in under 90 seconds, the images come out gorgeously sharp, and have made decorating my bedroom walls a breeze. I’m planning to carry this camera around in my backpack basically everywhere I go and keep adding to my collection!
I don’t know about you, but my lips are always dry, and I was convinced I’d never find a lip balm that kept them moisturized until I received these. I’ve only been using them for a week and I’m honestly hooked. As someone who strives to keep my beauty + skincare routine all natural, I loved that these lip balms are packed with natural ingredients like pure cocoa butter, raw shea butter, and vitamin E. They’re also free of parabens, phthalates, petrolatum, and gluten, and contain ethically + sustainably sourced ingredients!
As for the application, their flip to open design makes them the cutest lip balm I’ve owned, and keeps my hands from getting greasy. These FlipBalms are available in Juicy Watermelon, Creamy Coconut, and Ripe Mango flavors, and I still haven’t decided which one is my favorite!
These little cleansing cloths are the perfect addition to a college care package, and even your own backpack or gym bag. They’re hypoallergenic and alcohol-free, so their gentle formulas won’t irritate sensitive skin, and they come in a variety of scents like Island Splash® and Sheer Floral® to keep you feeling fresh at any time of the day! I love how tiny and discreet they are, so even if you’re not carrying a backpack, you can stash some in your purse or wallet while you’re on the run.
My roommates and I have become major fans of this little pan. It’s only 5″ in size, but it’s been perfect for making a quick breakfast before class, and would easily fit in a care package! The pan is coated in Thermolon™ ceramic non-stick, making it easy to achieve even heating while using less oil to fry foods. The stay-cool non-slip handle has a silicone sleeve as well, so cooking novices don’t have to worry about forgetting mitts!

I’m always looking to switch up my note-taking color scheme, so these pens arrived at the perfect time for the start of the school year. I won’t use a pen unless it dries fast, which is why the Sarasa Gel pens became an instant favorite of mine with their Rapid Dry Ink technology! I also received a Z-Grip Ballpoint pen that writes extremely smooth, an H-301 Steel Highlighter in pink, and an F-301 BCA, which was made specifically to highlight Breast Cancer Awareness.
An easy care package add-on could be an assortment of pens like these in your friend’s favorite colors, along with a cute organizer or pencil case!
