Cute Care Package Ideas

These days, loved ones can be scattered all over the world for a number of reasons, but that doesn’t mean you can’t support them from afar and let them know that you’re thinking of them. A thoughtful “care package” is one of the best ways to show the special people in your life that you really care and that you’re thinking of them. Whether that’s for children away at university, long-distance relationships, sick family members, or faraway bingo fans, there are tons of things you can send that will really make their day.

Here are some of the best ideas for care packages to send to a loved one:

Cleaning supplies

If there’s one thing that university-goers don’t love to spend their limited money on, it’s cleaning products. While it could seem like a bit of a boring gift, sending them household supplies could really be one of the best things you can do for them.

Care-package ideas:

  • Laundry detergent
  • Drying rack or airer
  • Clothes hangers
  • Bathroom and kitchen supplies
  • Sponges and cloths
  • Stain-removal liquid
  • Lint roller

Dishwashing liquid/tablets (although they may not be lucky enough to have a dishwasher!)

‘New home’ care package

Moving into a new home is always an exciting adventure, but it can also be overwhelming trying to get everything together and living for a couple of weeks without the regular creature comforts. Here are just a few ideas for people that have moved house.

Kitchen essentials

The kitchen is often the place that has the most items that may not have been thought about beforehand. Even if they are all stocked up in the kitchen department, your care package could help while stuff is still tucked away in one of the countless unlabelled boxes throughout the new home. There are some lovely ways that you can ease the move for your loved ones:

Kitchen-essentials ideas:

  • Wooden spoons
  • Chopping board
  • Cheese grater
  • Tin opener
  • Vegetable peeler
  • Plates
  • Cutlery
  • Sharp knives
  • Corkscrew
  • Wine glasses
  • Salt, pepper, and a few herbs and spices
  • Dishcloths
  • Bin bags.

‘Night in’ care package

When people have just moved into a new place, they could be waiting to buy what they need to make their home completely comfortable. It may even feel as though they’re merely “camping out” with the bare essentials. A nice idea is to provide some things that they could do with as they start to settle into their new environment.

Night-in care package ideas:

  • Bingo games, card games, or board games
  • Picnic blanket
  • Snacks or takeaway funds
  • Scented candles
  • A few of their favourite drinks
  • Bubble bath
  • Face, hand and feet masks
  • Bath bombs (who doesn’t deserve a bit of luxury after handling all those cardboard boxes?)

Long-distance relationship

Spending quality time together in a long-distance relationship is far from easy. But have no fear, Kitties! All you have to do is show them you care: here are a couple of ways that you can let your loved one know that you might not be with them in person, but you are there in your heart.

Anniversaries and special occasions

You might not be able to be together for your anniversary, birthday, and other special occasions, but if you put a bit of thought into it, you can still make it meaningful.

Special-occasion care package ideas:

  • A framed photo of the two of you
  • Their favourite drink
  • Some snacks that you’ve enjoyed together
  • Chocolate
  • Travel-size perfume/cologne
  • Jewellery
  • Gift card for takeout so you can enjoy a virtual date
  • Candles
  • Bubble bath/bath bombs

Travel plans

One of the most exciting parts about being in a long-distance relationship is planning to see each other and holidays that you can go on together. You can make some amazing travel-themed care packages for your loved one.

Travel care package ideas:

  • A map with your dream destinations or places you plan to go
  • Snacks or drinks from your travel destination
  • Travel pillow
  • Travel document holder
  • Sleep mask
  • Small travel toiletries
  • Magazines with articles about your destination
