I've got another college care package idea for you.
This one completely ROCKS!
Yep, all kinds of rock puns and treats to pack up for your favorite college kid. Take a look.

Rock puns for a College Care Package

For this package, I chose my favorite rock puns and crafted up some printable rock tags to print out and attach to every item in the care package.

I included these rock related items, but trust me--there's a lot more 'rockin' items out there to include in a rock-themed box.

Pop Rocks candies
Chocolate rocks
Rocky Road candy bar
Fruity Pebbles cereal
Handmade pet rock
Clif bar
Hershey's Nuggets
Mountain Dew soda
Ring Pops

I hot glued wiggly eyes onto real rocks I found on Camano Island. I couldn't help myself. If you're going to give a rock-themed gift, it should definitely have a pet rock!

Because we were able to visit the college students at our Alma Mater, I packaged their goodies in a gift bag to hand deliver.

I also boxed up 2 sets of these rock packages for my daughter and her roommate in Alaska. Yep, my kid chose a far-away hand delivering those. Thankfully everything arrived just fine- well, sort of. I did hear that the chocolate candy rocks exploded all over the package. Oh well.

Of course these rock gift ideas could easily be adapted to give as little gifts. They could encourage a friend, cheer on a child, or even be taped around a kid's bedroom for encouragement.

I'm always looking for small treats and creative gifts to give others. My go-to is usually a fun pun with a sugary candy bar or treat. Everyone loves that, right? Well, lately it seems that more and more people are staying away from sugary treats. I am obviously not one of those people, but nonetheless, I see a shift and I'm taking notice. The problem of course, is coming up with healthy treat ideas that are easy to give.

You are sensational seed pun tag

When my teenage son asked me to buy him some seeds to snack on, my brain immediately began to think in seed puns for gift giving. After a few tries, I came up with these printable seed pun tags. They work well for Thanksgiving or really, anytime. Take a look.

To make your own seed pun gifts, simply print out the tags and cut them out. Hole punch the side and tie the tags onto a package of seeds with a ribbon. I made some tags for sunflower seeds and some for pumpkin seeds.

Fall is my favorite season.
The sights, the smells, the pumpkins, the fall colors, the leaves 
and gourds! What's not to like?

gourd puns

I've crafted up some festive fall pun tags for you to attach to a gourd or a pumpkin. Who wouldn't want a fall vegetable on their desk or doorstop with a clever tag attached? It's the perfect little fall gift. Give for Halloween, Thanksgiving, or any time during the fall season.

It couldn't be simpler. Print out the tags.

Trim the tags and hole punch. Add a ribbon and tie them on to a pumpkin or a gourd or anything related vegetable. Add a personalized note on the back.

Fall gift giving

I used a lightweight white cardstock paper to print my tags on.
Orange ribbon was found at the Dollar Tree.
Gourds and pumpkins were found at the local pumpkin patch- aka the grocery store.

You don't have to give just one pumpkin...why not give a bowl full of an assortment of fall vegetables?

What does it tell you that my blog is full of multiple surgery pun cards? Foot surgery, hip surgery, lap band surgery and now knee surgery. Yes, I'm getting old, my folks are getting old, my friends are getting old, hey- we're all getting old.

And you could add a few knee related gifts to your punny card.
Not that you 'kneed' to or anything, but it might bring a friend some 'knee'ed knee-slapping laughs. (Yes, I have completely overextended it on the knee puns. I can't stop!)

Here's a little shopping list to get you started.
-knee high hosiery
-knee high socks
-knee bandages
-knee patches
-kneeling pad for gardening
-bee themed products (You're the Bee's Knees.)

And here's a few more.... 
Who knew there were so many knee related products? 

My mom just had a knee replacement--hence the reason why I'm writing knee puns, so I gathered a few little things for her and attached the card to the box.
