The holidays are my favorite time of the year. I love the decorations and the scent of fresh Christmas trees. Since I’ve become a Mom, I’ve also become a huge fan of giving gifts. Every year, I sit down and come up with the perfect gift for each person on our list. I purchase them, wrap them and count the days until I can give it to them. While I rarely have an issue coming up with the gift ideas, this year it became just a bit more challenging when I realized that I’m shopping for a young adult, our niece who started her first year of college a few months ago. I remember what I loved as a young adult, but let’s face it, it’s not the 90’s and I have no idea what’s considered cool anymore (though you’ll never hear me admitting that to my kids). This year we’ve decided to focus less on material things that take up space and instead on giving things we actually need. So, in this fashion, I’ve come up with the perfect holiday care package for young adults.
In addition to getting the perfect gift, it’s important to make sure that these gifts are within our budget, so I shop around and search for deals and coupons! For this care package, I knew that I would be including items that are daily necessities, so instead of buying one, I purchased what I could at our local Sam’s Club. I was pleased to find $2.00 off Crest toothpaste, something we always use in our house since Crest is the best option for our family. The $2.00 off offer runs now through 12/24/18. You can find all of the deals here.
Did you know that Crest Pro-Health toothpaste is the only toothpaste accepted by the American Dental Association to treat all seven attributes:
- Freshens Breath
Crest Pro-Health helps you advance to healthier gums and stronger teeth with benefits that help protect against areas dentists check most. For more information on Crest, visit crest.com. And make sure to like Crest on Facebook and Instagram or follow @crest on Twitter to receive updates and learn more about oral health.
Next, we made a list of things she would need while away at college. In addition to the Crest Pro-Health toothpaste, we included some fuzzy socks (for the colder nights), a nail manicure kit, lip balm, a bath bomb, face masks, a sequin makeup bag, shampoo, dry shampoo (for those crazy college mornings when there just isn’t enough time to shower), a back massager and a shower towel. Once we had the necessities, I picked up a gift card (so she could buy herself a little something) and threw in a festive candy cane.
I’d have to say that this is a care package I would have loved to receive when I was in college and I’m sure she will love it too!
