Craft great get-well care packages with these 4 products

Care packages are the perfect way to promote self-care and ensure your friends and family know you’re thinking about them when you can’t be near them on the daily. They can also make loved ones feel a bit less lonely, especially after being alone and isolated during the pandemic. Care packages are fun to put together, so you can include every item yourself, or you can have one sent directly from a company if you are short on time (but not love). We’ve created a list of care package ideas that are ideal for family members, friends, kids living away from home, or anyone in need of a little pick-me-up (so, everyone you know).

Here are some COVID care package ideas to get you started.

Greetabl allows you to curate an experience to send loved ones. Each box can be personalized with a card, letter, and a variation of gifts depending on what they like, all in one adorable package. You can add photos of you and your loved one, words, and unique gifts like candy, frames, candles, masks, jewelry, and more that can be personalized just for them. They have cards like “Miss your face” and “I miss drinking wine with you,” and then you coordinate the gifts that go inside. You can also include a gift card to their favorite coffee shop or restaurant. Prices depend on design.


If you have a bookworm in your life, put together a box of books that remind you of them. Maybe it’s a vacation you took, a restaurant you used to go to, or a favorite memory you have of them. The fun is trying to find a book that reminds them of your time together. Amazon is always a good place to go if you want to send books online. If you have a local bookstore you’d rather support, many will select several books on your behalf and mail them directly from their shop.

Etsy is the place to find all the get-well care package ideas you ever need. Many shop owners like PillarBoxGifts and GiftBoxLoveCo have a ton of options you can choose from depending on the type of box you want to send. There is a box for stress relief (yes, please!), spa day, staying warm and cozy, and sending sunshine, and prices are based on how small or large you want the care package to be. The only hard part will be not buying one for yourself.
