Being separated from your son for an entire term can elicit anxiety in many boarding families. Furthermore, living away from home can be even more daunting for him. A care package can help him adjust and deal with feelings of homesickness.
Sending a care package to his school ensures he has everything he needs and shows you care. Here are 50 care package ideas for your son.
It's also a good idea to check with the school or his Housemaster to double check what is and is not allowed - different schools will have different guidelines around what you can send.

Try to avoid sending your son anything of value – he won’t need it and it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Nonethless, receiving a care package is a wonderful way to remind your son that you love him and are thinking of him during term.
