12. College Name Halloween Dorm Care Package
The number one best thing about DIY-ing your own Halloween care package is that you can get as creative as you want with it! I absolutely love the idea of including the college name of the student you’re sending it to.
This Halloween care package is also something they can share with their friends which makes it even more perfect.

Halloween is the perfect time to play around with the funniest and spookiest puns, so head over to the internet and find some of the best ones to decorate the box with!
14. 13 Days Of Halloween Care Package
How creative is this idea? Send your college student a unique care package a few days before Halloween and have them open a surprise gift every day. It will be such a fun activity for them to do!
It’s the best way to tell someone you’re thinking of them and it’ll definitely put a smile on their face. Things like a comfy blanket, a journal, or even funny, custom made socks make the perfect gift option for the holiday season!
15. Halloween Snacks Care Package
Like I said before, any college student would LOVE some good Halloween candies. So why not send them all of their favorite snacks that they’ll enjoy while binging with their friends?
This Halloween care package is amazing because it has all sorts of snacks that are super popular during the season. If this box will not make the student happy, then I don’t know what will!
16. Zombie Inspired Care Package
If your college student is going for a zombie apocalypse costume look with their friends this year, there could not be a better care package to send to them than this one!
It has everything from bandaids, fake blood makeup, a Bluetooth speaker, to candies, and more! Also, it’s always a great idea to send them things related to whatever costume they’re going for to make it a little easier for them!

It does require some time and effort to recreate something like this, but the end result is SO worth it. Your college student will surely be impressed with this genius idea!
18. Enter At Your Own Risk Care Package
Make the Halloween care package spooky by adding all sorts of funny Halloween puns, their favorite candies, and some good Halloween decorations. Covering it all up with a “Open At Your Risk” or a Caution tape would take the box to the next level!
It would make the perfect care package just by the look of it, but I would definitely recommend decorating with more than just skeletons on the box to spice it up a bit!
WHAT TO PUT IN A HALLOWEEN CARE PACKAGE
19. Personalized Halloween Tumbler

20. Spooky Eyes
Spooky eyes are the perfect way to decorate any care package to make it look extra creepy and fun for the Halloween season! You can find a ton of them on Amazon for a cheap price.
Here are other Halloween decor pieces to get for decorating a care package:
21. Soothing Scents
Sending in scented candles can be quite tricky especially since most dorms do not allow you to light up anything.
Luckily, living in dorms has allowed me to find the perfect solution to making it smell good even without the candles!
And it’s all because of an essential oil diffuser! If your college student does not already have one, I highly recommend packing it in the care package. They would love the smell of these essential oils and their room will be the best smelling dorm in the hall for the season!!
22. Stickers For Box
If you have a clear idea on how to decorate a halloween care package but don’t have the artistic ability to do so, these stickers from Etsy are the best ones for you to buy!
They are a great option and super easy to work with because all you have to do is stick them on the box! It’s that simple and will totally make it look like you did the work 😉.
23. AirPods Case
These AirPods cases are so so cute!! I’m obsessed with them and think they make a perfect Halloween care package idea!
Almost 90% of the students carry Airpods with them everywhere they go so there could not be anything better than putting an airpord case in the box this year!
This one is perfect and sturdy and they will love to pair it with their Halloween costume!
24. Custom Halloween Socks
Now let’s come to the fun part 😜. Socks for the holiday season are a must but custom made ones sound so much better and perfect to give anyone! You can of course get these custom made on Etsy with any picture you want (could be yours or the student’s).
No matter what, I think this is something you absolutely cannot miss to include in the Halloween care package!
Make the spookiest night with their friends even more memorable by packing in some good Halloween movies!
Friday the 13th and Scream are all nostalgic movies perfect to watch with a group of friends, and The Quiet Place II has some of the best jumpscares hah!
Movies and games go hand in hand so of course, you can’t go wrong with packing in some of the spookiest games! Pick Your Poison has been a cult favorite and the others have pretty good ratings on Amazon!
Games like these, especially during the Halloween season, will surely make up for the fun time among their friends and they’ll seriously thank you for it :).
