How does it work?

Shop our premade packages or browse our inventory of items to build your own. If you select a premade package, you can still always add additional items from our inventory to customize your order.

Your gift items will either be put in a box or bag depending on the weight of items and the weather when your care package is delivered. It is then decorated with a Boulder Care Package sticker, black and gold ribbons and a gift tag.

All of our care packages come with a small “to/from” tag that shows who purchased the gift for the student.

If you’d like to add a message to your student, browse our “Personalized Greeting Cards” option from the menu on the left.

All of our care packages are hand delivered. During checkout you’ll provide the date you’d like your package delivered and contact information for your student. We’ll contact your student to arrange a time and place that is convenient for them to receive their care package. We deliver Monday-Friday, and next delivery is available if you place your order before 4:00pm MTN time. Thank you!

Flatiron Meal Plan

In addition to Boulder Care Packages, we also operate the Flatiron Meal Plan program.

Started in 2001, The Flatiron Meal Plan is a prepaid card that allows students to purchase meals and shop for groceries at over 100 local merchants, including favorites like Illegal Pete's, Safeway, The Corner, Half Fast Subs and The Sink.

You can start a Flatiron Meal Plan with any dollar amount, add money whenever you need it, and remaining account balances carry over from semester to semester and year to year.

The Flatiron Meal Plan is an easy way to budget your student’s food money for the semester and with exclusive cardholder discounts, it saves you money.

About Us

We started Boulder Care Packages to help parents keep their CU students stocked up with snacks, school supplies, get well items, birthday presents and just some fun gifts to make their day better. We know that life is busy and we hope to make it a little easier with our hand delivered care packages.

This is our fourth year in operation and we are really excited for a fun school year that will be busy with get togethers, sporting events and just life more back to normal.

We would love any feedback with regard to items that you would like for us to carry, and please be in touch if you have any questions about our service. Michelle is a CU Boulder graduate and Drew has worked with the CU Boulder community for over 212years running the Flatiron Meal Plan.

Thank you and Go Buffs!
