You guys know that we loooove sending care packages. We’ve talked about them before here and here. Since today is Halloween (when did that happen?!), we’re a little late for mailing (I mailed mine out last week), but there’s still plenty of time to drop off a package for a friend, neighbor or family member – or start thinking about Thankful Themed packages!
There are lots of fun places to find Halloween goodies. Here are some of my favorite things to put in a Halloween Care Package:
- glow in the dark fangs
- plastic pumpkins
- cookie cutters
- glow sticks
- hand towels
- pumpkin seeds
- spider rings
- spooky music cd
- funny glasses
- note cards
The great thing is that care packages can be catered to the recipient. If it’s a college student, maybe you include some fun glitter eye lashes and makeup. If it’s an empty nester neighbor, maybe you include Amanda’s Pumpkin Muffins and some pumpkin paper napkins.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, if you want to make store bought goodies look extra special, repackage them! In this gift box, I put candies and cookie sprinkles in containers from PaperMart, and the box is this one.
These packages are only limited by your imagination. Just think of something you’d love to receive, and send it to someone. Everyone loves happy mail!!
