She received it earlier this month, and was both surprised and excited about getting a box filled with lots of little presents.
To make the care package, I first took apart the box so it folded out flat. Then I covered the inside of the box with white gift wrap paper.
I used green masking tape to tape the edges to the backside of the box.
The next step was to use clear packing tape to seal the box on all the sides except the top.
Now the box was ready to be filled.
I laid out all the items on the tape and removed the price tags or crossed off the price if it was on the product.
The theme was "We Think the World of You" and had items that were made in different parts of the world. These are the 16 countries and 20 items that were in the care package:
- Dark chocolate with shortbread and sea salt
- Maple candy
- Chamomile lavender herbal tea
- Hello Kitty lucky stars candy
- Mini-panda stapler
- Bonne Maman jam
- Milk chocolate cookies
- Worry doll
- Icelandic chocolate
- White soap
- Super lemon candy
- Cactus pear scented soap
- Cassis black currant candies
- Anna's Swedish thins
- Toblerone candy
- Posing Pandas game
The next two pictures are sideways, but they show how there were two layers of gifts. First the lower level:
The postage was a bit expensive (a little over $13), but it was worth it to hear how surprised and happy Sophia was when she received her first care package at college.
