Going away to college can be an amazing experience. There’s a sense of exhilaration at the first taste of freedom, finding the world is so much bigger than you’d imagined. It can also be a source of stress. Late night cram sessions, no sleep and the fast paced college life can equal a less than healthy lifestyle. This year, as my son returns to college five hours away, I decided to create a Healthy Lifestyle and Wellness Gift Basket.
How to Make A Healthy Lifestyle and Wellness Gift Basket
I wanted my gift to be practical and useful so I began by purchasing a shower and bath caddy to hold the items. This provides easy storage and can be carried anywhere. I included the following supplies because I knew these would be of the most use to my son, but feel free to adapt to your child’s needs. Sure, they can go to the college health clinic, but many times they are not open when supplies are needed. It’s best to have supplies on hand “just in case.”
*Bandages— Even if your child is not accident prone like mine, these are good to have for the minor scrapes and cuts.
*Antibiotic Cream—To keep all the minor scrapes and cuts from becoming infected
*All Natural Sunburn Relief Gel—Tailgating in the fall, intermural sports and outdoor spring activities can all lead to sunburn.
*Hand Sanitizer– Let’s face it. Colleges can be a hot bed for germs. I remember my daughter’s experience when her entire dorm was quarantined due to the flu. Hand sanitizer is a staple!
*Pain Relief Medication—For all the headaches from late night cramming or for muscle aches from intermural sports.
*Anti-Itch Cream—This is helpful when you attend college in the land of large mosquitoes or other pesky biting insects!
*Sundown Naturals® Vitamins – to help maintain a healthy lifestyle! I chose the new adult gummy vitamins found at Walmart (because they’re so much more fun!) in the following:
**B12—For energy support because students need all the support they can get! They help your body convert the food you need into cellular energy and they come in fun flavors of mixed berry, orange and raspberry.
**Cranberry—Comes in Cran-Raspberry Flavor and supports healthy urinary tract function.
**Vitamin D3—Comes in Strawberry, Orange and Lemon flavor and supports Bone, Teeth and Immune health.
Plus, the Sundown Naturals® Adult Vitamins are gluten free, dairy free and free of artificial flavors◊. Not sure what vitamins your college student needs? They have all sorts of vitamins, including vitamins for hair and vitamins for skin. You can take this test to find out which vitamins might be right for you!
