Care Package for Boyfriends Ideas
You need to determine the budget of the package, size and amount of items you want to include in the package. Bear in mind the shipping costs involved as this may get very pricey, especially if you are sending it overseas. Be aware of different countries’ regulations and legal restrictions of sending items in the mail. For example in Australia, all food must be declared when entering the country so you may have a hard time sneaking in a few treats.
Here is a care package breakdown:
- What is your budget? Make sure you stick to it!
- What is the size of your package? It is important that all of your items shipped can fit.
- Amount of items
- Calculate shipping costs and have a budget buffer (as shipping costs can largely vary)
- Be wary of country regulations and legal restrictions. What items can and can’t enter the country?
- Buy padding or improvise to protect items
Buy decorative stuff to make it pretty (paint it, use stickers etc).
