Valentine’s Day is a day for kissing, hugging and cuddling with your special someone. But sometimes, that special someone has to be away from your loving embrace. So how exactly can you shower them with love when they are away? With a V-Day care package, of course! From cute stuffed animals to a printed photo book, we have put together a list of seven Valentine care package ideas for your special someone.
1. A Cuddly Stuffed Animal
Lost on Valentine care package ideas? Then send them a stuffed animal care package, complete with a personalized note to send a heartfelt V-day message. A stuffed animal will give them something to cuddle up with as they watch the rom-com virtually and when they are really missing you. Send them a stuffie of their favorite animal or a classic bear stuffed animal. Whatever you choose to send your special someone, it will bring a smile to their face.
2. Stationery and Love Journals
Give your special someone a way to put their feelings into words. A stationery set with notecards and envelopes, along with a set of cute love-themed stamps, will help them send their love in a letter. Even if they’re not keen on sending snail mail, a journal works just as well.
Relationship experts even suggest journaling as a way to improve your love life. Writing down all the quirks about your partner and wonderful moments together makes you appreciate the relationship that much more. Journaling can improve your mental health, fight insecurities and reduce anxiety, leading to amazing #relationshipgoals. Get them a nice colored pen collection to complete the writing experience.
3. A Romantic Comedy Movie
Another Valentine care package idea for your special someone is a DVD of your favorite romantic comedy. Of course, you can purchase the digital version or stream it on the platform of your choice. But the idea is the same. So plan your digital Valentine date night and watch the movie together virtually, laughing at a cheesy rom-com. Because couples who laugh together, bond together. Racking your brain for a good romantic comedy to watch? Here’s a list of the top romantic comedies of all time.
4. Candies and Sweets
Sugary candies shaped like hearts, lips, love-letter stamps and more make a delightful treat that they can indulge in while watching the rom-com – if they can wait that long! Does your special sweetheart prefer rich chocolates instead? A box of chocolates, truffles and bonbons also does the trick nicely.
Chocolate-covered pretzels of the twisted and rod variety offer the perfect salty and sweet combo that is perfect for a V-Day care package sent to a special guy, too. Since Valentine’s Day often falls on the coldest day of the year, you could also send a sweet hot chocolate mix.
5. A Printed Photo Book
If you have been on enough adventures together and have accumulated a few favorite photos, this Valentine’s care package idea is a sentimental one. Gather a collection of your best digital photos of the two of you and create a printed photo book. Is the relationship new and you don’t have many memories yet? Then print and frame a single photo or a special moment from your first date.
6. Concert or Game Tickets
Pencil in a future in-person date with tickets to a concert or game. Keep an eye and alert on each of your areas with Bandsintown and snatch up a pair of tickets to see their favorite band. Make an entire date night out of it with dinner reservations, too. Dating a die-hard sports fan? Then get tickets for a game instead to cheer on their favorite team. The great thing about this gift is that it’s easy to slip in a few tickets into a printed photo book, stationery kit or journal as an extra surprise.
7. A Candle That Recalls Fond Memories
Candles are just a classic V-Day gift. However, don’t just get any plain-Jane candle. Consider a candle that will evoke fond memories or make them feel romantic. Give them a candle that smells like their hometown or the city that you met or even one with a scent that reminds them of your first date. If you can’t find a particular nostalgic scent, give them a candle with a romantic fragrance like ylang-ylang, jasmine, smoky vetiver or musk notes.
