There’s a reason why mixtapes, scrapbooks, and gift hampers are so popular. Yes, they take time to put together, and require careful planning and execution, but they are incredibly thoughtful gifts that will certainly be well received. This is ThankYouJon’s Guide to Care Packages.
Generally, a care package is a collection of little gifts that sums up to be greater than the parts. It is possible to be very creative and thoughtful, and offers a high degree of diversification.
It is quite unlikely to dislike the entire care package, since there should be at least something that they will enjoy within. The joy of opening many little packages is another fun side-effect as well. Moderation is the key here, you want to send enough gifts for variety, but not so many that they will feel overwhelmed. ThankYouJon recommends anywhere from 3 to 8 gifts in your packages.
While there could be any number of events that you can have a care package for, here are some of the more common ones. Be creative and have fun!
