Nothing's better than a beginning of the year reminder that you have the best parents in the world by way of a package filled with everything you forgot at home and were probably going to put off buying at Target for weeks.

It's an inevitability that every college kid will become ill at least once during his or her freshman year, and that first time being bedridden in a loud, dirty dorm can be rough. A "get well soon" care package filled with all of the essentials for beating a cold will definitely make it suck less. Throw in some Campbell's chicken soup, cough drops, these pill-shaped get well soon notes, and of course some real medicine too.

5. The Pink Pocky Package
