Receiving a care package from a loved one is pretty high up on the list of our favorite things. So what does the perfect one entail? We dove in to find out!
the element of surprise
There’s nothing quite like an unexpected package, and one filled with all your favorite essentials? Yes. Yes please.
the seasonally appropriate
When the cold weather sets, cozy elements that inspire warmth are practically a requirement. Think: a hot chocolate set, s’mores kit, or a warm scarf.
Nothing tugs on the heart strings quite like a sweet, handwritten note.
What’s a care package without at least one box of the recipient’s favorite sweets or chocolates?
the scented something
A fragrant candle evokes a hint of nostalgia, lending a warm and cozy accent.
the beauty buy
You can’t go wrong with a good drugstore haul. Throw in a few essentials such as lotions, face masks, and even a few bottles of nail polish.
the useful thing
A few basics are always welcome. Coffee, socks, tissues, ziplock bags, the list could go on and on!
the good read
Pack in the season’s top titles, mingled in with a few classics and perhaps a guilty pleasure read.
