With social distancing and limited travel, maintaining connections with loved ones means finding new ways to show our affection. Just because we’re apart from some of our friends and family right now doesn’t mean we have to feel alone. We’re all facing challenges in our lives right now, which means this is the time when showing support and love is the most crucial. Sending a care package can be a great way to show someone you’re thinking about them while also providing them with treats or supplies that might make their time at home less stressful. If you’re looking for a way to treat a loved one who lives far away, try sending one of these thoughtful, cozy care packages.
