    Open When Letters?

    Advertisements
    Hey guys, so I was thinking of including some open when letters (I'm sure you've all heard of these before), in my DB's next care package. I was just wondering if you guys have ever done something like these letters? Did your SO like them?? Im nervous my man will think it's an unoriginal idea or that it's too cheesy. I wrote each letter about one of our favorite memories so I did make it very personal.. I hope he likes them!

    I did it for DH! But he opened them all at once Little stinker.

    He really loved them. He loved how much effort I put into them. I also included one with just a picture of us for "Open when... you want to see the best couple I know" or something like that

    I've done those for every mission or longer underway. DH loved them. I also always hide some stuff in his sea bag like little goody bags and candy for him to find when he gets a chance to pack out his rack.

    I'm currently working on some since I'm the one that is going away and will have limited contact during basic. It seems as though there are plenty examples of what the envelopes are or the "open when" ideas but not so much about what goes into the envelopes. At least the envelopes are only so big so I don't have to put a ton in there.

    I've done maybe 7-8 so far, DB LOVES them. He re-reads them all the time.

    DB loved them. He still has a few left...I made sure to write one for when he's on the plane home.

    You know if you tell them not to it makes them want to do it even more!
