    Decorating outside of the box?

    Advertisements
    I've read a bunch of blogs, etc on care packages for ideas etc. Some say you can't decorate the outside of the box, others do it and say it's ok.

    I don't want to do it all the time but maybe for certain themes. I just don't want to do it and it not be allowed.

    IMO, no you should not decorate the outside of the box. Some people will say it is ok though. IMO you should not call attention to any box you are sending, ever. If you want to decorate, decorate the inside.

    I would check with the person you're sending it to ... some units may have different guidelines than others. Plus I know a lot of people dislike the decorated boxes so clearing it with the person ahead of time would be a nice courtesy.
