This summer, my boyfriend is down in Columbus taking summer courses, specifically Calculus-based Statistics. Yuck! He’s really down about having to spend another summer in school, especially because math is his weak point. Thankfully he comes home most weekends so I still get to see him!
To show him that I am most definitely thinking about him and to make summer courses a bit more bearable, I decided to put together a little “Stats Survival Kit” for him. I was originally going to ship it to his apartment, but his mom invited me to tag along with her and surprise him! I’ll be spending a few days in Columbus with him and instead of paying for shipping, I am just going to give it to him. At least I’ll see the expression on his face! 🙂
I based the idea for this little project off of simple college care packages. I know many parents who send their kids “Exam Week” care packages; I just put a little twist on it.
If you decide to make this for someone, you can add your own creativity to it! How about a Feeling Sick survival kit? A Back to School survival kit? A Bad Day survival kit? The possibilities are endless!
Here is the survival kit that I put together:
First I filled the bottom of a small box with his favorite candy.
I’m so excited to give it to him! Obviously I’m going to have to post this after I give it to him, so once this is up, he will have already received it. I don’t want to risk him reading my blog and seeing this!
This was such a cheap craft to do. I probably spent around $10 total. So it’s total doable on a college budget and it’s a thoughtful gift bound to put a smile on anyone’s face!
Once I give him this kit tomorrow, I will post this and let you guys know what he thought! (Just gave it to him! He loved it!)
If any of you make a survival kit of any sorts, please do share! 🙂
Have a great day everyone! 🙂 XOXO
