What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

With the holiday season past, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! This day hits at an odd time for college students because at this point, the spring semester is in full swing and if you and your sweetheart are miles away, seeing each other can be a bit difficult.

The same goes if you are a parent or friend of a college student and you can’t be with them during Valentine’s Day, but you still want them to know you’re thinking of them! The good news is that you have the option to send them a personalized gift without visiting them in person. 

What we mean is, send them a care package! A care package is a great way to show your love, because what college students want most while they’re away at school is all of their favorite snacks and candies. What a better holiday to give them these things than Valentine’s Day? 

If you’re curious, your care package can be customized specifically for Valentine’s Day. You have the option to gift care packages with chocolate samplers, chocolate foiled hearts, heart shaped conversation candies, and even an adorable stuffed teddy bear. 

But don’t worry, if the college student in your life is an avid health conscious eater, there is a healthy Valentine's Day care package option that includes staples like Larabars, cookie lemon bars, sun chips, and plantain chips. 

Keep reading and we will tell you how to send a Valentine’s Day care package, healthy care package, and even create your own!

Valentine’s Day Care Packages 

Personalized care packages
Personalized cards are a great Valentine’s Day option this year, go a step further with a holiday themed care package. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought with it multiple changes that we have come to know as the new normal. This includes staying at home as often as possible, social distancing, and wearing facemasks. However, this new normal doesn’t stop birthdays and holidays, like Valentine’s Day, from occurring. 

This means that you still need to send gifts during these important days and with a care package, you can safely send that gift to your special someone from the comfort and safety of your own home. You don’t have to worry about shipping location either because care packages are available to ship to most colleges across the United States and home/apartment locations too! 

The process is simple, and with a few clicks and some shipping information, your care package will begin shipping on February 1st and arrive closer to Valentine’s Day. All of the available care package options can be viewed and sorted through until you find the perfect one! This is an effortless way to send your Valentine’s Day love and with peace of mind you can ensure that your gift will be sent safely and arrive in the same condition.

To make this experience even more personalized, at checkout you have the option to choose your greeting card picture, or upload one of your own. Then write a 50-75 word message that will show them how much you love and care about them.

Healthy Valentine Surprise Care Package

Even though Valentine’s Day is geared towards chocolate and sweets, the health conscious college student in your life deserves to celebrate too!

Valentine’s Day is famous for its emphasis on chocolate, candy, other sweet treats, and heart shaped foods, like pizza! However, these foods aren’t necessarily the best for your body, so some health conscious college students might not want sugary treats on Valentine’s Day. 

We have the perfect gift for the special someone in your life who needs a care package like this. Healthy snacks can still be delicious too, especially on Valentine’s Day. 

Healthy students shouldn’t be left out of Valentine’s Day -- this care package has all of their favorite healthy snacks.

This Healthy Valentine Surprise Care Package is everything you need for your special student with dietary restrictions or choices! It includes healthy, but still tasty snacks like granola bars, sweet and tangy lemon bars, fruit snacks, trail mix, and other great snacks. They will be so happy to receive a care package that follows their healthy living style, especially on Valentine’s Day

Create Your Own Care Package 

Care packages include some of the top of the line snacks that are among college student favorites -- you can even individually select their favorites too. 

If you want to put some extra special thought in your college student’s Valentine’s Day care package, and you don’t see one you love from the list above, then consider customizing your own care package!

Creating a custom care package is a simple three step process -- 1. Select your box size and pack it with awesome snacks and sweets. 2. Personalize your greeting card and note. 3. Send your love. We will walk you through this process below. 

First things first, beginning with step one -- select your box size. If you know how big you want the box to be then perfect! If not, during the item selection process, you always have the ability to upgrade or downgrade the size. Box sizes range from small, medium, and large and are priced at $30, $50, and $80 respectively. So, if you have a specific price range then box size is a great way to ensure you stay within budget. 

Once you’ve selected a size, it’s time to pack your box and the options are endless! There are ten categories to filter through, which can be overwhelming, so we’ll break it down for you here! The categories are as follows: 

  • Birthday 
  • Breakfast
  • Candy 
  • Chips 
  • Cookies and crackers
  • Drinks and meals 
  • Healthy foods
  • School supplies 
  • Fitness and protein 
  • Spa items 

Since this is a Valentine’s care package, you can probably rule out birthday and school supplies right off the bat -- unless they’re in need of extra flashcards then you’re in luck! It might help to ask them what some of their favorite snacks and sweets are if you don’t already know. You can find creative ways of asking without giving away the surprise! 

For Valentine’s Day we recommend sending them brownie brittle, it’s one of our favorites! When packing your box you can send as much or few of one item as you like -- for example, if they love goldfish then you can send them five bags! 

Once you’ve packed your box you can move on to the note section. Just like packing the box, there are a lot of options for greeting cards. The first field you need to select is -- what occasion are you sending the care package for? We’ll list the options below:

  • Final exams
  • St. Patrick's Day
  • Easter 
  • Off to College
  • Thank you
  • Thinking of you 
  • Halloween
  • Out of the blue
  • Christmas 
  • Get well soon
  • Valentine 
  • Birthday 
  • Happy Holidays 

Since this is Valentine’s Day, you’ll no doubt be sending one of those greeting cards, but you can keep these other options in mind for the next holiday or birthday! You have the option to upload an image of your choice if you would rather make their experience more personal. 

In the next three fields, you will enter who the card is going to, write your message, and who it’s from. There are 55-75 characters for your message so you can make it long and creative or short and sweet! Keep in mind emojis cannot be printed, so you’ll have to write out those tender, loving emotions instead! The more you personalize the card and keep it fun and upbeat, the more your student will enjoy it. 

Once you’ve finished step two, the only thing left to do is send the care package! This entails your basic online checkout procedures -- shipping address, billing address, payment information, shipping, etc. You’ll also need their university address to ensure it arrives at the proper location, so keep this in mind. Then send your gift and wait a few days to receive that phone call from them gushing about how they love the thought!

When COVID-19 prevents you from seeing that special someone on Valentine’s Day, sending a care package is a great way to let them know they are still on your mind while following all safety precautions! This is sure to bring a smile to their face and make their whole day. Happy Valentine’s Day!
