Company Overview

Once kids leave for college, parents miss them. Sometimes it’s not feasible to just drive down and visit. Perhaps their across the state or even the country. It’s no surprise when kids are away from home, they love to get care packages in the mail – which is where LuckyU Box comes in. Take the work out of preparing care packages from shopping to shipping with the click of a mouse. Let your college kids know you’re thinking about them throughout the year. Subscription packages are available in 3 or 6 months and will be on hold during the months of May through August.  Additionally, special boxes for birthdays can be ordered and there is personalization available.

What’s In the Box?

Each box features a collection of items that a college kid would want or need. Our box featured deodorant, laundry soap, an assortment of snacks, mints, gums, energy drinks, hot chocolate, oatmeal and more. When you order your box, LuckyU will even include a personal photo or note at no additional cost.

My Thoughts

I may not be a college student, but I think this box is a hit. It hasn’t been that long since I was in a dorm room and I loved getting mail from home. A box like this would be a great treat for any student in your life. The assortment is great featuring all the things a college kid would love and need – food and personal hygiene.  With the free personalization option – this box is perfect for all the students in your life, or even kids that have recently moved out on their own.


Monthly subscription boxes $34.95 a month or as low as $32/month when you subscribe for a year. Special boxes range in price.

The Verdict

Some may feel the price point is a bit high and to be honest, at first so did I but when I started look at the items in the box and thinking about how much it would cost to go buy all those things, pack them up and ship them – not to mention the time.  It’s a really decent price point. When my little one gets to college, I would certainly consider this as a great gift!
