The Care Packages I have been putting together these last months have been a joy to assemble because I know how much happiness they will spread. I have always loved the concept of giving a gift out of the blue. I call is a ‘just because’ gift. The care packages stem from that idea. Sure, they absolutely work for a birthday or anniversary, but my initial thought is folks receiving them during these trying times will be extra tickled because they are arriving at their home for no particular reason. Just some treats to let your friends or family know you are thinking of them, even though you can’t be with them at that moment. We have received such heartfelt messages from both the senders and receivers of said parcels, with how much they have been enjoyed. A little chocolate, a candle, liquid hand soap, hand sanitizer, a jar of jam, a journal–sweet treats to let them know you are thinking of them and sending love. Plus we include a handwritten message from you in the box. Here are the latest three I assembled the other day.
