Back-to-school season is almost upon us! It’s always tough seeing your not-so-little-one head off to the college of their dreams. While they may be in a new city or state, you can always bring a smile to their face with a thoughtful care package full of necessities and goodies! The business of Town Center have everything you’d ever need to curate the ultimate care package. Here’s a few of our favorites…



A care package classic…. sweets! If you know they’d appreciate a delicious box of chocolates or some classic candies – The Royal Chocolate and IT’Sugar – should be your first stop. If a little taste of Paris sounds more up their alley, then stop by Macaron Tart and grab a pack of fresh macarons.

Gourmet Caramel Apples @ The Royal Chocolate

BIG Box Candy @ IT’Sugar

Small Macaron Gift Box @ Macaron Tart



Okay, so we realize these may not be “essentials” but they’re definitely great gadgets to have in a college dorm or apartment! They’re also small and compact, just what you’ll need in order to fit as many goodies in that care package as possible.
