Your kids have been away at college for about a month now, and whether it’s their first time leaving home or their senior year, students will get homesick. As parents, you want the best for your kids, and hearing their sadness over the phone can be tough. The best way to help any homesick son or daughter away at school is to send them things that remind them of home, and for Maryland natives, Box Hill crab cakes are the perfect gift.
What Parents Should Know
First, parents should know that homesickness is very common with college students, especially if your child hasn’t been away from home for an extended period of time before. It is a very big adjustment, and one of the best things you can do if offer support when your child is missing home. Make sure your son or daughter feels heard, but remind them of what a great time college will be and that they should be making the most of it.
It’s also important that your child has a few things that remind them of home, so when you’re putting together a care package, make sure to pack it full of their favorite treats from home. For Maryland residents, there’s no better package than getting shipped delicious, fresh crab cakes that taste like home.
Ship Crab Cakes To Their Dorm
After a long first week of unpacking, meeting new roommates and finding their way around campus, your kids will be excited to see a care package from you waiting for them at their dorm. Any care package is appreciated, but when they realize that they have Box Hill crab cakes, they will feel right at home once again. We ship our crab cakes via FedEx, and packages will be delivered next day as long as the order is placed before 10:00 a.m.
Plan A Visit
While it is important to let your son or daughter be independent at college for a few weeks, nothing is better to a homesick student than having a visit from their family. Plan a weekend in September or October to visit your child and bring along their favorite crab cakes as a surprise. You can buy Box Hill uncooked crab cakes to take on long trips, and as long as they stay nice and cold, they will be perfect by the time you see your son or daughter.
