Love From a Distance with Care Packages
When the leaves start to change and the air feels a little crisper, we all tend to get into the giving spirit of the upcoming holidays. With everything looking a little different this year, you may be struggling with how to fulfill that gifting desire. Fear not! Everyone loves to receive a package at their doorstep, and bonus points if it's unexpected.
Health & wellness is at the forefront of all of our minds right now, and it's a great theme to lean into for care packages to your loved ones. Whether you choose to ship something directly to your loved one, or assemble an intricate care package and ship it to them yourself, it's a great way to show someone you're thinking about them!
1. Tailor the items to each recipient.
Each person that you may want to send a package to will have different interests, preferences, and you'll want to tailor the experience to each person to make it feel truly personal and thoughtful. You can stick to the same theme for all your recipients and have some consistent items, but switching it up just a little bit for each person makes it a bit more fun!
2. Include a nice, handwritten note.
Handwritten notes are no longer as common as they used to be, but that just makes it feel even sweeter when you receive one! The lack of human interaction in today's unusual circumstances means that any personal touch is even more appreciated. So, get to writing!
3. Make it a surprise!
The best gifts are ones that are completely unexpected. Let them be surprised by the arrival of the care package. And don't forget to get creative and enjoy the process! Gift-giving can be a serious pick-me-up.
