With the Back to School season looming, parents are looking to save any way they can. If you have children or family members heading off to college, you want to send them off with the things they need, and make sure they're well protected. Identity theft is a major issue among college students, so many parents opt to give gift cards, instead of cash or debit cards. Parents are concerned enough about the well being of their children once they leave the nest, and the last thing they want to worry about is the possibility of their child having their identity stolen.
Visa Gift Cards are a wonderful option for college students. They can be used anywhere, and often times, you can re-load them, if needed. From the campus bookstore to the coffee shop, your college student will have the security and funds they need for a successful semester in school, without having to worry about debit or credit cards being swiped, unknowingly. Visa gift cards also make the perfect gift to tuck inside of a care package! Send them through out the year to treat your student to something special. They also make fantastic gifts for a job well done on a final exam, acceptance into a club or organization, birthday gifts, etc.
Care Package Ideas:
Personalized Package- Pull together some personal items, such as family photos, a favorite picture frame, homemade treats or cookies. Send a journal, a taste of home, if the student is out of state, and don't forget to include a Visa Gift Card!
Supplies Package- Send a package of items you think your student might need or would find useful. Remember- the items don't have to be boring. Send them some fun personalized items + a Visa Gift Card! Include some stationery and postage stamps, so they can send out some snail mail to family and friends!
Get Well Package- Send some items your student might need for cold/flu season, like hand sanitizer, soft tissues, tea and honey, cough drops, and a Visa Gift Card, so they can pick up any other items they might need from a local pharmacy.
Chocoholic Survival Kit- Send a care package filled with different types of chocolates, like nibs, chocolate squares, gourmet chocolates, and some of your students favorite chocolate treats (brownies, anyone?). Don't forget the Visa gift card, in case there's something special your student might want to pick up to add to the collection!
