Send a Little Halloween Love…

HAVEUHEARD HALLOWEEN CARE PACKAGE

Have Some Halloween Fun!

When my daughter left for college, I sent her a Halloween care package.  It was nothing fancy; just some dollar store decorations, candy for her to share with her suitemates and some fun things that could be used for a makeshift costume. Remember that UPS shipping within the state of Florida is typically overnight at no additional cost; a perk I have often enjoyed. If you are creative,  Pinterest has some great Halloween themed care package suggestions.  Some sayings you can put inside include:

I Miss you Boo (with a ghost next to it)

No tricks just treats!

Hey Pumpkin, you deserve this

Going batty without you

Well… you get the point.

We’ve taken the guesswork out of what to send and went right to the source… our interns. They may be adults but they are still not too old for a good, old-fashioned Halloween gift. Here are the most popular requests from students…

Candy

That goes without saying, but some were quite specific including Reese’s pumpkin cups, fruit snacks, gummy bears, jumbo candy bars (because the regular size ones are not enough), just a mixture of candy. You can put it together yourself or, if time is not on your side, try  Dylan’s Candy Bar which has everything from a Missing Body Parts in a Halloween Coffin Box, to the traditional candy corn bag of assorted candy corns, chocolate covered candy cake pops and chocolate dipped pretzels.

Target has your traditional candies, as well as, themed Oreos and novelties, and you can save $2. With the purchase of 2 select bags using the promo code CANDY.

Treats

It’s all about the pumpkin spice whether those are cookies, cupcakes or coffee… pretty much pumpkin spiced anything. Last year, I sent my daughter (with some included for her roommates), Cupcakes In A Jar. I specifically got her pumpkin spice, caramel apple streusel, and chocolate pumpkin.

Anything covered in chocolate is appreciated including  Halloween Decorated Chocolate Covered Oreos,

Halloween Decorated Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods or very cool

Large Pumpkin Pretzels.

We love this adorable Halloween Care Package filled with gourmet popcorn, brownies, iced Halloween cookies.

Speaking of cookies, again, students are clamoring for anything pumpkin spiced –

Order this Gourmet Pumpkin Spice Pecan Mason Jar Cookie Mix which is fun for them to make without having to buy all the ingredients.

And, you can’t go wrong with Gourmet Dipped Autumn Strawberries or Cake Pops.

Or try this JackOLantern Cookie Cake or Haunted House of Treats.

And just when you think you’ve sugar shocked them enough; students feel nostalgic eating Candy Apples.

More Love…

Finally, students appear to love all things autumn (even though Florida never truly has an autumn) welcoming in the season with these requests ….

Calorie-free fun for your feet! Halloween Socks

Set the mood for Fall with Pumpkin or Fall Scented Candles.

Finally, if Halloween sneaks up on you, you can order from some amazing local bakeries or order a themed cake or cookies from Publix and have it delivered.

Happy Halloween from HaveUHeard
