The Best Care Packages to Send During COVID-19

Coronavirus has meant strict social distancing measures are in place around the world. It’s easy to feel disconnected from friends and loved ones due to the lack of physical interaction with others. One easy way to feel connected to others and show them you care is by sending a care package. We’ve come up with our top care package ideas for every scenario.


Ideal for students far away from home who have been unable to return due to coronavirus. You can send multiple things in a care package if they’re feeling under the weather or stressing out due to final examinations or assignments being submitted.

Possible things to include:

  • Tea
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Healthy snacks
  • Study supplies

  • Stress ball/fidget spinner

Not everyone lives with their partner, some are even thousands of miles apart. But that doesn’t mean you can’t bond in other ways.
