Deployment Care Package

It's that time again,
time to get into a creative mood and come up with some fun care package ideas for my sweetheart.

Here is the first one I sent him this time around.
I started by making a run to Hobby Lobby and picking out paper and stickers. 
I got enough for several packages since they were 50% off.

When I got home I made a snack and a cup of tea, turned on an old chick-flick and got to work.
First, I decorated the inside of the flat rate box.

Creative Care Package Ideas

I just opened a word document and figured out what fonts I wanted to use, 
then printed the words right onto the paper.
He has access to a BX, so I try to only mail him things he can't buy there.
Here is what went inside this package:

Creative Care Package Ideas

I got the idea for the canister you see in the picture above here.
I had saved the empty tin from some Burt's Bees hand salve. 
First I printed out the label, once again I simply used Microsoft Word.
Then I cut out little paper hearts and wrote things I love about Scott on each one.
So easy and cute!

I printed this sweet "I'm nuts about you" label from 14 Days of Love 
and tied it to a bag of roasted pistachios.
Scott has really terrible dry skin, so I made this hand balm for him.
Thank you Pinterest for all these great ideas!

If you have any ideas or suggestions for packages, please share!

Thank you all so much for your support. 
You are a blessing to me.

Have a lovely day!


  1. That is a great care package! Snacks, personal care products, love notes! Cute how you decorated the box too!

    I'm not sure about ideas, but I'm thinking books might be too heavy but what about a good magazine or two? World magazine, or a hobby type (woodworking for example), Sudoku, that kind of thing. How about downloading a favorite movie onto a flash drive that could be used on a computer?

    I'm praying that you'll be encouraged during this deployment Anna. When the Lord brings you to mind, I will pray for you and Scott.


  2. so lovely and wonderful, it makes me want to go somewhere so you can me one!! I am sure Scott was very blessed by this gorgeous, creative package!!
