The Care Package Post

I am all about care packages. If you have a little money and a little time, you can send a package to a friend or family member and remind them that they are loved! Here are some resources about how to create care packages for anyone:

themes: 

peanut butter & jelly 

a box of sunshine (1, 2, 3, 4)

out of the blue

blue without you

movie night

sorry I’m cheesy! 

I’m so lucky you’re mine

orange you glad

colorful care packages 

whale hello there 

who are you sending it to?: 

a college student (just add water) (1, 2)

a college student athlete

a caffeine fiend

someone who’s sick (1,2,)

someone who’s going through chemotherapy  (#2

a friend

someone serving in the armed forces

someone you’re in a long distance relationship with

someone who’s pregnant 

for a kid (1, 2,)

someone who loves their car  (#2

someone in need

someone who has just gone through a break up

a lack of vitamin me

occasions:

birthdays

Easter

Halloween

Christmas (all I want for Christmas is you)

anniversaries 

anytime 

here are some ideas of what to put inside:

  • pictures of you and your friend
  • a card with a sweet message
  • sweets! (cookies, candies, fudge, etc.) no one makes them like you do, but if you don’t have time and/or baking isn’t your thing, you can buy some here. (here are some tips on how to ship cookies)
  • non-perishable food items like: oatmeal, cereal, pasta, tea, hot cocoa, crackers, chips, trail mix, dried fruit, pretzels, etc.
  • a small stuffed animal or a couple of toys
  • pens, colored pencils, art supplies, a coloring book
  • a blank journal or a good book
  • jewelry (like a necklace or a pair of earrings)
  • a keychain
  • toiletries & beauty products (mini deodorant, body wash, shampoo, lotion, makeup, makeup brushes, makeup remover/face wash, nail polish, nail clippers, nail file, fake eyelashes, lip balm/lipstick, aspirin)
  • home decor (like a canvas with an inspirational message, a scented candle)
  • slippers or fuzzy socks
  • a blanket
  • a scarf
