Care Packages – A personalised gift full of love.
Guest post by Sarah Willmott.
Have you ever considered Care Packages as a gift idea?
Firstly, you may ask what is a care package? For some, a care package is a relatively new concept. But in other countries such as the US they are sent all the time and across the globe.
Care packages are mostly sent from parents to their children living away at University or from family members to those in the Army or Navy. These care packages are full of comforts from home. Loved ones basically sending a box full of helpful, useful items showing how much they care from a distance and are still trying to look after them as best they can.
