Ladies how many times do we get excited when our friends and family buys us a gift just because? You know that gift your boyfriend gets you on a random Wednesday. Or that gift your mom got you just to say how proud she is of you. I don’t know about you but I know I love when my guy writes me little notes, or my Aunt makes me my favorite home cooked meal, or my bff buys me slippers because she knows my feet are faithfully cold. It really is the thought that counts!That’s why we should flip it and start sending care packages. You know a “just because” gift. I’m sure not only would your special someone appreciate it, but would be a complete surprised.
Everyone LOVES to get presents in the mail. But have you ever thought to give a care package to your blogger friends. Care packages are the best way to support someone in need and to give them a bit of encouragement. We all know that every blogger is in need, right! It’s also a great way to build your relationships and network with other bloggers.
Since I get an abundance of beauty products (duh, I am a beauty blogger), I usually send care packages filled with makeup that I’ve previously used to review here on the blog or makeup that doesn’t match my complexion. The care package above is for my best blogger boyfriend. She blogs about tech and mom stuff so I figured giving her a little makeup to brighten her busy day would be a perfect care package. She’s always taking about how getting cute and going out with the hubs can be challenging so I wanted to send her a care package that would get a little head start on her date night.
In addition to sending makeup I also decided to send shampoo, conditioner and…tampons! Yes I mailed someone tampons. I wanted to send her something extra useful that she could discreetly carry in her purse. I remember being a bit skeptical about trying o.b.® tampons because there is no applicator, but so many people switch to o.b. after being introduced to them. I started using that after my good girlfriend slid me one when I run out of my normal brands. I’ve been hooked ever since. So I decided to be that friend and pay it forward. Even though every woman’s body is different, o.b.® tampons are designed to help stop leaks by expanding all-around to fit each unique shape. Clearly that’s everyone’s goal!
Hopefully you are inspired to get a care package together for your besties!
