Care Packages

romantic lightbulb and duct tape care package ideasMy boyfriend lives in Canada and I live in the United States. One day after we had been unable to visit each other for several weeks, I received a box that contained some rather unusual items.

In the box, there was duct tape, light bulbs, incense, chocolates, and 2 CDs. The note I found inside to explain this made me both laugh and cry.

It said…”Duct tape – so you can tape my mouth shut when I interrupt you. Light bulbs – because you said you were scared of the dark and I don’t want you to ever fear anything. Incense – so you have the smell of sweetness even when I can not be there. Chocolates – because you’re worth it. John Mayer CD – because I love “our” song. Missy Elliott CD – so that I don’t have to listen to “that” song every time it comes on the radio.”

It was all so silly and yet so incredibly thoughtful. I think it was one of the best gifts I have ever received.
