My best friend is going through some stuff right now, and he lives far away. Nothing more frustrating than a friend in need when you can’t physically be there, eh? So I sent a care package to make him (and me) feel better.
I think a care package is pretty personal, so it’s not like I can tell you exactly what to put in one. I chose candy (duh), some of his favorite vices (celebrity magazines), something for his new home (placemats/napkins), and some things just for him (lip balms, bracelet).
And of course, a pretty notebook filled with messages from the entire family help complete the package. I decorated the box with craft paper and wrote all the things I love about him on the lids. I’m sure I could have sent an empty box with those messages and called it good. Sometimes people just need to be reminded that they’re loved, ya know?
I hope this gives you some ideas. Maybe you know someone who could use a care package too? Just remember—you don’t need a reason! Who wouldn’t love a package of goodies from friends or family?
