There are no rules to care packages. They can be small, they can be big, they can be virtual, they can be something tangible, they can even be your presence. Care packages are unique to you and your recipient.
What’s the most important about them is that they are meaningful tokens of your affection. It shows your recipient that you took the time to think about them and pick out a care package just for them.
No matter what the package is, it will show that you care and that is very comforting.
Keep on reading for TEN care package ideas guaranteed to make someone’s day ❤️
1) A home-cooked meal:
Do you have a bunch of old ice-cream containers lying about in your kitchen cupboard that you plan on throwing away but never do? Yes, you do. How? Because I do too.
Next time you’re making a big bowl of spaghetti Bolognese (my personal fav) or lasagne, or gnocchi (I love pasta, ok?) or any meal, save some as a care package for your friend or family member! I am positive they will appreciate you showing up with free food. I mean, who doesn’t love free food?
2) Get them their favourite flowers:
When you’re at the grocery store, pick up a bouquet of flowers and hand-deliver it. Maybe add a bag of cookies as well.

3) A scented candle:
Everyone and their mother loves a scented candle. It is an instant mood booster. There are a plethora of scents to choose from these days. Fresh linen, tropical scent or even baby detergent. My personal favourite.
4) Order a takeout:
Let Bolt or Wolt do the work for you. Order their fav dish from their fav restaurant and get it delivered to their door. I am positive they will appreciate a fresh, hot pizza. And throw in some beer as well because why not?
Do I need to elaborate further?
6) Your presence:
Sometimes just being there is enough. There’s no need to bring anything with you. Make plans and show up even if it’s just going to their house in your PJs. Commiserating is sometimes all that is needed. Simply being there and listen with intent.
7) Homemade nut butters:
Munch A Bunch offers a wide range of homemade nut butters, treats and even gift baskets! These would make the ideal care package for your loved one.
8) An at-home spa:
A very easy, inexpensive but also very thoughtful. It doesn’t have to be fancy at all. All you need is some face masks, a bath bomb, a body wash and things like that. You can add whatever you think your friend would like.
9) Show up with your pet:
Is your recipient an animal lover? Show up to their doorstep or plan an outing and bring your pet with you. The goodest bois and girls will surely put a smile on their face
A fresh cup of brewed coffee hits the spot. Compile a package with different types of coffee beans, even some tools to make coffee or a cute mug. Words cannot espresso how much they will appreciate this gift. See what I did there?
11) Book a weekend trip:
A break from the usual routine is beneficial from time to time. You can either book a weekend trip to a hotel for some downtime by the pool or by the spa or fly to a different country. It doesn’t have to be crazy expensive!
