custom-giftMy daughter went away to college about a month ago, and since then my husband and I have missed her dearly. It’s only natural to experience some form of empty nest syndrome, and the pain is lessened somewhat by regular phone calls. It sounds as if she’s making a successful transition by staying on top of her studies while making plenty of new friends.

Last week it occurred to me that we should send her a care package just to show her that she’s always in our thoughts. Knowing that she loves to take luxurious baths whenever possible, I went online and created a custom gift basket chock full of handmade soaps, bath fizzies and moisturizers. With any luck, she’ll have enough time to enjoy its contents between classes and her other priorities.
