Make sure your partner is fully equipped with all of the necessities by sending some supplies their way.
Blankets and Pillows

PPE Safety Kit
Make sure your partner is following CDC guidelines for staying safe during the pandemic with a PPE Safety and Glove Kit. This kit includes two pairs of nitrile disposable gloves, two cotton masks, two bottles of hand sanitizer, and one package of multi-purpose alcohol wipes.
Pamper Them with Spa Products
Your partner deserves a nice pampering every now and then. Throw some bath bombs and face masks in your care package so they can treat themselves to a nice spa day. Scented candles are also a great addition thanks to the soothing and calming benefits they offer.
Give your partner the gift of a luxurious bath with some bath bombs! Not only do they smell great, but they can also moisturize your skin and help you unwind before bed. Some bath bombs contain shea butter, olive oil, or milk powder, which can smooth and repair your skin.
Bath bombs come in many different colors, shapes, and sizes. You can find everything from a pink heart-shaped bath bomb to an intricately designed ice cream cone-shaped bath bomb. You can purchase a bath bomb at one of your favorite stores or make your own! Whatever design you choose, your partner will love the creative addition to their care package!
Face masks are a fun addition to any skincare routine. Not only will they make your partner feel pampered, but they will also leave their skin feeling fresh and soft. This is because face masks dig deeply into the pores and draw out dirt and impurities under the surface of the skin. They are also fit for all skin types, from oily to dry skin. This is also a fun gift that you can either make yourself or purchase from a store! Some beneficial ingredients you can add to a homemade face mask include aloe vera, avocados, honey, and lemon.
Scented candles can help your partner relax, unwind for bed, and reduce their anxiety. Even the simple act of lighting a candle can help your partner calm their mind. Their pleasant scent and ambiance are also perfect for helping your partner meditate and focus.
Not sure what type of candle to give your partner? Send them a lavender candle if you want to help them relieve stress. To help your partner energize themselves and improve their focus, send them a eucalyptus candle. Lemon candles are also effective in helping your partner relax and relieve their worrying minds.
You can also send them a candle featuring their favorite scents, such as vanilla or pine. There are even bacon-scented candles available on the market.
Create Some Personalized Gifts
Care packages don’t have to include expensive and extravagant gifts in order to be special. In fact, homemade gifts made with care can be even better than pricey ones.
Write a Heartfelt Note
A simple, handwritten note can make your partner feel loved and appreciated. Some people prefer writing their notes on a piece of special stationery while others use a blank piece of paper. Others create a pile of notes and label them with titles such as “Open When...You Are Feeling Sad” or “Open When...You Need Something to Make You Laugh.” You can also send a little jar full of affirmations or words of encouragement.
There is no shortage of creative methods you can use for making a special, handwritten note for your partner.
Send a Small Scrapbook of Your Favorite Memories
Living far away from your partner can be tough on both of you. To help make your partner feel closer to you, send them a small scrapbook filled with photos and stories of your favorite memories together. Whenever they are feeling down, they can flip through the scrapbook and relive some of their fondest memories of you.
Send Supplies for a Long-Distance Date Night
Thanks to video conferencing services, organizing a virtual date night with your partner is easier than ever. For your next date night, change things up with these fun additions to your care package.

Gift Cards for Streaming Sites
Nowadays, it feels like a new streaming platform debuts every other month. From Disney+
to HBO Max, it can be hard to keep up with these new streaming services.

On your next date night, let them pick a show the two of you can watch together while video chatting.
For your next date night, cook a meal together! Send your partner a recipe book full of delicious recipes that you can try together. Before you start cooking make sure you prop up your cell phone or tablet against a steady object. When you are all finished, sit down and enjoy the meal you whipped up together.
Enjoy a glass of your favorite wine together over video chat. While they enjoy their favorite rose or white wine you send them, you can sip on your own preferred glass of wine. To add an extra sense of romance, they can also lit one of the scented candles you sent them.
