With the start of school, kids can become homesick for that cherished home cooking that got them through the summer. By sending them the Texas Taste of Home (medium) Gift Basket, their school year can start off right with a touch of Texas comfort. Let’s face it, college students are still kids for the most part and at the beginning of school long for the relaxing reminder of home. As syllabus shock greets them the first week of school they are tempted to drown that in the local Chick-fil-a. However, that can be a lonely experience – trust me. By sending them a gift that can replace those food runs, you make the experience a relational one! This gift basket includes:
-Wild West Cookies (2 oz.)
-Cowboy Snack Mix (2 oz.)
-Padre’s Popcorn (2 oz.)
-El Paco Authentic Texas Tortilla Chips (2.5 oz.)
-Texas Firecrackers – spicy baked snack crackers with a Texas kick! (2.75 oz.)
-Texas Chocolate Candy Bar
-Printed Gift Card
If that list did not whet your appetite, then maybe the cinnamon jelly beans and peppermints that are thrown in with it will! A new semester can be a stressful time when kids need to be reminded of their home-base support, and all college kids love to eat.
Also, take a gander at the college-specific gift baskets for UT, A&M, or Baylor students. Go one step further and put together your own gift basket by browsing the College Care Package Ideas section of the website! Every student has their own style!
If you don’t know any students but have a sincere desire to make someone’s day with a tasty gift think about sending this gift to a soldier overseas, using it as a welcome basket to that neighbor down the street, or delighting a Texan who was forced to move out of state with a reminder of Texas’ rich flavor!
