  My inspiration for Smiles From Home!  My sons, Michael and Will Dunn

I have enjoyed creating “care packages” for my sons, Michael and Will, for years!  Whenever exam time rolled around in high school, I would get busy pulling together “study treats” to keep them motivated and make their task a little less stressful.  Once they left for college, I started shipping the packages to their campus.  They always looked forward to receiving them and were the envy of the kids in their dorm (although I always put in enough to share!)  Everyone needs some “Smiles From Home” when feeling a little stressed or homesick! 

Thus the creation of Smiles From Home!  Now as an empty-nester, I still send care packages to my college student and even to my young adult graduate, working in the “real world”, and would now like to offer it to others!  Let me do the work and you get the credit for having some “thinking of you” goodies sent to your student (or anyone else who might need a smile!)

I initially designed my business with the busy, stressed-out college student in mind - studying hard and maybe feeling a bit homesick.  They definitely need a little TLC and to know someone is thinking of them.  But there is something for everyone - anyone who needs a SMILE!  A happy face mug, filled with treats or a "Movie Night" package with popcorn, candy and a pizza gift card!  Co-worker, teacher, grandparent, babysitter...ANYONE, ANY OCCASION!  Treats vary with the season and the holidays, so they are ever-changing and always fun-filled! 

Student packages are chock-full of items catering to students craving snacks and diversion for study breaks (tested and approved by my sons and their girlfriends! 😉 )  And being a big "school spirit" family,  your student’s package will be spiritedly topped off with a handmade raffia bow in their school (or Greek) colors!

All care packages - for students or anyone in need of a SMILE - include free gift wrap, a hand-made raffia bow in your choice of colors, and a personalized message card from YOU!
