It’s hard to believe we’re now over a month into social distancing measures. We’re dealing with a situation that is unprecedented in our (and our parents, and grandparents) lifetime. While I don’t pretend to understand the unique and nuanced challenges everyone is facing, I do think that a lack of social interaction has impacted everyone. It’s hard not to see your friends and family and show your love in all the little ways: from a hug, to buying them a drink, or treating them to a birthday night out.
Alex & I have definitely been missing our tribe and so we decided to create gift bags to curb-side deliver to our friends (staying at the car / socially distancing of course). Deciding what to get for the gifts bags and actually putting them together was a fun activity in and of itself, and we’re excited to gift them to our friends tonight! Head to my instagram stories today for some footage of our delivery escapades!
We’re all home. All the time. Drinking all the coffee. (Or wine out of coffee mug, #dontjudge 🙊). A Cute coffee mug makes a great gift idea for a socially distanced care package. You can tailor it to the person’s specific tastes or go for something that gives back! Alex & I gifted this “Socially Distant” coffee mug from a local boutique, The Heart. The owner is giving back $3 of the sale of each mug to charity to help those affected by COVID-19 and/or struggling with poverty and food security right now. Below are other funny/cute mugs that would make a great addition to the care package.
I repeat: we. are. all. stuck. at. home. Might as well brighten up your space with a pretty and good smelling candle! Below are some of my favorites.
It’s a funny, cheap addition to the gift bag, and honestly it’s practical!
At Home Beauty Products:
You can get some great face masks, nail polish or other beauty goodies at affordable prices and include those. Personally, Alex & I got this face mask set since it’s great quality but a good deal when buying as a set (6 masks for under $21, so only $3 per person). Take a look at some of the other beauty products I’d recommend for this socially distanced care package below:
If you have a printer at home, this is a great (and affordable!) thing to include. You can google pages to suit your friend’s particular tastes, print them and include them in the gift bag. Everyone needs distraction right now and adult coloring is perfect for that!
Pick up a few bags of candy and throw them in the care packages. Who doesn’t love a little sweet treat!
This one is (clearly) a bit of splurge but depending on what you want to spend per socially distanced care package (Alex & I kept it to under $35 per person) you could add in some cozy sweatpants or a soft tee! I’ve linked up some below that are all less than $18.
