As you may remember, I moved my oldest daughter into college dorms a few weeks ago. I got home and felt this profound sense of loss. I wanted to do something special for her to let her know I'm thinking of her... again and again.
The way to my daughter's heart is through her stomach. But not just any food will do. She loves the healthy, the slightly exotic, the stuff you can't just find at any convenience store.
I found my little version of a care package... Graze. Monthly mail order boxes are quite popular right now and Graze really fits my daughter well. I didn't fill it out as a gift subscription but used my own email and billing information but entered her name and college address as the shipping information.
The next step in enrollment is to view possible snacks and mark them trash/try/love/like. Because I'm pretty darn familiar with her tastes, I was able to go through and select the snacks I thought she'd like to try and also select the snacks I knew she definitely wouldn't like and mark them "trash" so they wouldn't be included in her boxes. If you were doing this for yourself, you could go back in after you receive a box and mark it "love" or "like" to also help the company when deciding what to send in future boxes.
Each box contains 4 snacks and the boxes ship every week or every two weeks (the purchaser can choose frequency; I went with every two weeks). Kiah got hers last week and loved it. It was exactly what she needed at a time when she really needed it.
If you'd like to give Graze a try (either for yourself or a child away from home), I have a referral code. The code will get your 1st and 5th box free with no commitments; you can stop at any time. If you use the link to sign up, I can also earn a slight discount and maybe even a free box for my girl. Gift subscriptions are also available if you'd like to just give a gift certificate and let the recepient sign up and take care of selecting which snacks he/she would like to try.

And with that, I hope you have a wonderful, blessed Labor Day.
