    workout care package

    Advertisements
    So I get better and better in creating care packages. My last one (IŽll send it tomorrow) is to him to send him some positive support in his hobby.
    I used grey paper for the package and did put red and yellow letters (material foam rubber) saying "train dirty, live clean and "Beastmode". Now I put in grape-sugar, strong chewing gum, and a few lotions for muscles and pain etc, shower gel from europe, a heating pad, a special cup for his protein shakes, sport socks and a sport magazine. Whats always important to me is a card or a letter. This time I wrote 2 cards. One card with all the superheros (I know its more for a teenager but I coudlnt resist to compare him with superheros because he is just mine) and a motivating text and one card with a...well more mushy text

    I hope he will be surprised and happy about it.

    So next time when I send him a package there will be no special holiday. Does anyone has ideas ?

    If you find your self running out of themes and ideas for your care package, I highly recommend using pintrest to get some ideas, the last care package that I sent was a "10 things I miss about you" and it was simple but sweet.

    I do the same! I do not decorate. I just get things he likes/needs, write a letter or a note and off it goes.
