Sending the ultimate care package is a great way to show someone how
much you care, to stay connected to a far-away friend or college student, or to bring cheer to someone who's
feeling a bit under the weather.
Feel Better Gift Basket
For the friend that's recovering from illness or feeling blue after a break-up, send a care package that's sure
cheer them up. A delicate
"Loved" charm necklace is an especially sentimental gift to remind a close friend that
you care about them and they're not alone. If you're looking to lighten the mood, send a gift basket filled to
brim with heart-shaped
cookies and sweets they can
College Care Package Ideas
There's no better way to show your support for a college student than by sending them a college care package.
Support their good study habits with an assortment of the savory and sweet snacks
they love, or a
charcuterie they can share with their roommates. If you're not sure you want to give food gifts or if the dorm
rules don't allow for it, consider sending a lush succulent or
floral arrangement to
Relaxation Gift Basket
We all have that busy bee friend or family member that could use a little relaxation. Maybe they're under a lot of
stress and could benefit from some much-needed self-care time. A thoughtful way
to support your loved ones and
encourage them to take time for themselves is by sending them a spa care package. A
spa gift set comes with
everything they need to create an atmosphere of relaxation. A comfortable pair of pajamas or robe for them to slip
into after a long day makes a nice alternative (or addition) to a spa care package.
Active Minds Care Packages
Some of our loved ones are super busy and others could use something to keep them occupied. Perhaps they're
recovering from illness or confined to the house after surgery. Whatever the reason, if your loved one could use a
distraction, send a care package with items that activate the mind such as a book you
think they would find
engaging. Scented candles are also a great way to
activate the brain's pleasure centers.
Family Care Packages
Choosing a care package that a whole family will enjoy is tricky, but the key solution to this family dilemma is
choosing a package with variety. A food gift
basket filled with an assortment of sweet and savory snacks, for
example, is sure to have something for everyone to enjoy. Another thoughtful option is to send a game night care
package that provides snacks and games the family can enjoy together.
Whether you send them a crate filled with their favorite study snacks or a spa gift to help them relax, they're
sure to feel loved when they receive a care package from Olive & Cocoa.
