Simple ‘Be Mine’ Package
When it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts, you have to start out with the classics. While your boyfriend already knows you are his valentine, it never hurts to ask again. For this care package idea, just include all of the standard Valentine’s Day gifts. It might be a little cliche, but isn’t that the point? So gather up your conversation hearts, your teddy bears, your heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, and start piecing together your package. For this type of gift, the more over the top, the better. If you just get a box of chocolates that would be considered basic, but a box of chocolates paired with a life-size teddy bear and a huge bundle of balloons is considered epic. Your boyfriend will love this cheesy gift.
There really is no situation where choosing sweets is a bad idea. The purpose of you sending your boyfriend a care package is to show them how much you love them, by giving them something they love. And who doesn’t like sweets? Include whatever you would like in this care package. Make your grandmother’s famous chocolate chip cookies, go out to your local bakery and buy some of your Boyfriend’s favorite treats, fill up a box full of his favorite candy or order a Chocolate Passion care package online. No matter what you decide to do, your boyfriend will love his delicious care package.
Sorry, ‘I am Cheesy’ Box
When searching for care package ideas for any occasion, you will inevitably come across a ton of packages inspired by puns. Heads up, this is not the last punny care package ide on this list. The “Sorry, I am Cheesy” care package is perfect for Valentine’s Day. Is there a cheesier holiday?

Consider adding Cheetos, Cheez-its, actual cheese, and other cheese-filled snacks.
Movie Date Night
This idea is mostly for those sweethearts who will be spending Valentine’s day together, but it can be slightly altered for anyone who won’t get to see their Valentine this year. To create this package, pick out a couple of great movies for you and your boyfriend to watch on V-day. This is completely dependent on your guy. It may be romantic comedies for some guys, and animated children’s movies for others. Just make sure it something that he likes. While it might be tempting to pull together a bunch of chick flicks, that might not be what your boyfriend will enjoy on Valentine’s day. After all, it is your gift to him.
Once you have chosen your movies, fill your package up with a bunch of snacks and candy. Make sure you don’t forget the popcorn! Then, on Valentine’s Day, you and your valentine will have an entire evening already planned. If you will be separated this Valentine’s Day, send your boyfriend the package and then watch the same movies and talk about them later.
