What is a College Crate?

And Why You Should Send One of our Care Packages to Your Student

Most people know what a care package is: a box of food or other items sent to a loved one who is away. We send loved ones care packages because we want to make sure they have everything they need, wherever they are. A college crate is much the same: it’s a gift box full of items your student needs to stay happy and healthy. We like to call it a hug in a box!

Who Can Receive a College Crate?

Our company started with a focus on sending snack-filled care packages to college kids. We’ve since listened closely to our customers’ wants and needs and have evolved to ensure we’re sending things in our college crates that your student will love.

That isn’t to say you must send one of our care packages to a college student. Prep school students, older kids at long-term sleepaway camps, and more will love to receive one of our thoughtful gift boxes. 

What’s in a College Crate?

Each month, we work hard to make sure the items we fill our care packages with are fun, seasonal, and unique. In the past, we’ve included items like snacks, personal care necessities, games, coffee gift cards, dorm room essentials, face masks, and dorm decorations. In the future, who knows what we’ll include.

How Often Do You Send Out Care Packages?

At My College Crate, we offer two ways to send care packages to your student in college or prep school. You can send a one-time gift, perfect for celebrating special occasions, or choose our monthly subscription service, and your recipient will get a new box of goodies every month. You never have to remember to order your College Crate; we’ll set you up on auto pay for as long as you like.

Why Should I Choose My College Crate Over Other Care Package Services?

Our founder created our company based on his real, lived experiences receiving lackluster care packages when he was in college. He knew his parents loved sending him treats every month, but the expensive gift delivery services they were using left a lot to be desired – and usually contained rotten fruit. 

We never want another college or prep school student to receive a disappointing, but well-intentioned care package. Because care packages are a way you send your love when you can’t reach out and hug them, your students should receive college crates filled with things they’ll enjoy using, eating, and sharing.

Every care package you order and we send is backed with our earnest customer service. When you contact us, a real human will get back to you within 24 hours. We’ll give you your money back if you aren’t happy, and we’ll let you cancel your monthly subscription at any time, without cancellation fees. At My College Crate, we won’t stop until you feel like a super parent.
