From microwaveable meals and snacks to everyday essentials and little surprises, our boxes make sure you’re sending things they’ll love.
Send your student a summertime surprise! We have the perfect gifts for college students to get outside, soak up the sun, and enjoy long summer nights.
Here’s what we’re doing every day to do that:
– All surfaces in our facility have been sprayed with a special antimicrobial solution that kills nearly all bacteria and viruses for up to a year from the date of application. In addition to this safety measure, we sanitize counters before and after each shift.
– All employees have access to three sanitization stations.
– All employees are provided a face mask and are required to wear it properly (that means above their nose!) for the entire time that they are in the facility.
– All employees must have their temperature read at the beginning of each shift, before entering the warehouse.

While our founder, Greg, was away at college, his mother found a new hobby: sending care packages to him at the dorm. It was an expensive endeavor for her to order them from prominent care package companies, and it was a hassle, too! Not only was getting to the right dorm address difficult for these companies, but the contents of their boxes left something to be desired — after all, who wants rotten fruit? Greg always thanked his mother for these packages, but after the fruit incident, he told her he would be OK without receiving these special gift boxes anymore.
After mulling it over, Greg found a solution for care packages that make it easy for parents of college and prep school students to send what they actually want. Thus, My College Crate was born.
Celebrate special occasions, like birthdays, making the Dean’s List, or holidays with a one-time college care package or prep school care package. An ideal student gift, our college crates are full of a variety of fun, themed items for all interests. We’ll send your surprise directly to your recipient.
Instill a sense of community and school pride in your students with our fully-customizable care packages sent on your behalf. You send us your ideas and mailing list, and we’ll take it from there!
We ship out care packages by the 7th of each month. Shipping usually takes 3 to 5 business days. Every delivery is backed with our earnest customer service, and we’ll work hard to make sure your student’s gift box gets to them.
We’re motivated by a desire to deliver happiness and health to students around the US. If you contact us, expect a call or email back from a real human within 24 hours. Get your money back if you’re not happy, and cancel your subscription any time. We won’t stop until you feel like a super parent!
