How to make a Valentine’s Care Package

Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year! For anyone lucky enough to be loved up at this time of year, it’s an opportunity to show your partner just how much you care. That could mean a dozen red roses, a romantic dinner, or even a weekend away. But for those love birds who are in long-distance relationships, Valentine’s Day can be tough.

If your loved-one is far away this Valentine’s, it doesn’t mean you can’t still make it special for them. Sending a thoughtful, personal care package is guaranteed to mean the world to them on this special day. Read on to find out how to send the most romantic care package for your partner.

Decorate your box

First of all, you’ll need a box. Just any old box won’t do. If you want to make your care package extra-special, decorate it on the inside with Valentine’s wrapping paper, drawings or even photos of the two of you together. This way they will want to keep it as a memento for years to come.

Something sweet

Stock up on their favourite treats. You know them best of all, so head to the shops and pick out their favourite sweets, crisps, chocolates and treats. If they’re living far away in a foreign country, think of the things they might not be able to get hold of. It could be something simple like a can of baked beans which means the world to them!

This is a thoughtful way of showing them that you know them inside out, and gives them something to indulge in while they open the rest of their package.

A pampering kit

No care package is complete without some pampering goodies. Again this can be personalised to your partner’s specific tastes. Their favourite luxurious bubble bath, a face mask, a moisturiser or hair treatment, and a candle in their favourite scent. If you’re feeling especially generous you could even include a voucher for a spa day or a salon treatment.

Men deserve to be pampered as well as ladies! If you’re unsure what to include in a care package for your boyfriend, why not treat him to some high-end face cream or hair wax that he would never think to buy himself? If he’s got facial hair, beard oil will make even the wiriest face fuzz soft and strokable next time you see him.

Notes and memories

Write down (or draw if you’re feeling arty!) some of your favourite memories together. From dates to holidays and special occasions to funny moments. Make a list of all the things you love about them, or all the experiences you’re most looking forward to sharing together.

Collect souvenirs from some of their favourite places that they might miss to include – whether that’s a postcard from your home town or an ugly fridge magnet, they will cherish these funny knick-knacks if they’re from you.

Something to look forward to

Whether you’re a couple who love the theatre, live music, the cinema or simply nights in on the sofa, include tickets or vouchers for something to attend together. If you’re strapped for cash, why not make your own “I Owe You” vouchers for your other half to cash in when they feel like it? Things like “You choose the movie” or “A foot massage” are thoughtful and personal – your partner will love them!

A Valentine’s Card

Don’t forget to include the key item – a romantic card telling your partner how much you love and miss them!
