Care Package Ideas for Your Long-Distance Boyfriend

Time to spoil your man

Long-distance relationships are a lot of things, but fun is not one of them. There is a lot you can do to make the most of the situation for a healthy and happy relationship. One of these things is continually giving LDR gifts to your boyfriend.

In my opinion, care packages are the most fun and thoughtful way to do it.

If you have no idea where to start, you have come to the right place. Below are ten care package ideas for your long-distance boyfriend that he will love.

A set of his favorite books/movies/games

This long-distance relationship care package idea is perhaps the easiest to execute, especially if you know him well enough to identify his favorites. It could be a set from a movie franchise, a book trilogy he is obsessed with, or a bunch of video games. It could also be a random collection of unrelated pieces that he loves.

What to put in it:

  • Your chosen set of books, films, or games.
  • Merchandise related to the productions.
  • Note with an inside joke related to the set.
  • Popcorn and a special bowl for when he starts his marathon.

Food (honestly, you can never go wrong with it)

Men love food, end of the story. So if you find yourself stumped by what stuff to put into that care package, then just go with food.

The best part is that these days, there are many companies with lots of food options that can be delivered to your LDR beau’s doorstep. That way, you don’t have to worry about it getting spoiled on the commute over to his house.

What to put in it:

  • His favorite food or snacks.
  • Any food or snack he has mentioned wanting to try.
  • Dessert. And if he has a sweet tooth, you can make this the entire package.
  • Cutlery, especially if you have it delivered at work.
  • A sweet note (pun very much intended)

A hair and beard grooming kit

It is more of a practical than a sweet gift and is what makes it such a great long-distance care package idea. Whether or not your man is observing Movember (the no shave November trend), he will appreciate that you care enough about his grooming to be involved.

What to put in it:

  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Moisturizer
  • Combs
  • Shaving cream
  • Aftershave
  • Beard oil
  • Shaving blades or a machine
  • Trimmers

A collection of personal keepsakes

Sometimes with these packages, less is more. So maybe consider taking the more sentimental route rather than, the flashier displays. It could be a bunch of your t-shirts that have your scent on them. You could send a photo album with a collection of memories you have shared over the years. It can be anything really that you know will make him think of you.

What to put in it:

  • Anything sentimental. Just keep it simple and sweet.

A hangover recovery package

One of the secrets to success in a long-distance relationship is having healthy, independent social lives. So you need to be ok with your man going out with his buddies now and then.

As an awesome girlfriend, you can take this to the next level and send him a hangover recovery package when you know he is in for a particularly wild night.

What to put in it:

  • Painkillers
  • Water
  • Sunglasses
  • Gum or mints
  • Eye drops
  • An energy bar
  • A gift voucher to a restaurant or fast food joint

A set of menswear essentials

We are not talking about getting him an entire outfit or anything, unless, of course, you know he would love it. This package should be more focused on smaller accessories that you know he will use in his daily life.

What to put in it:

  • A tie or a bowtie.
  • A tie pin
  • Cufflinks
  • Sunglasses
  • A nice watch
  • A little bling-bling if that is his style

A get well soon package

If your boyfriend is feeling a little under the weather, this is the perfect LDR care package for him. The best thing to do is to outsource and have it delivered from a care package company near him. That way, if you decide to include perishables like soup or sensitive items like medicine, you won’t have any challenges.

What to put in it:

  • Basic meds like painkillers, antiallergy meds, and whatever else based on the condition.
  • Food (especially soup).
  • A get well soon card with or without a carebear.
  • Essential oils.
  • Warm clothes. Include socks, mittens, and scarfs.
  • A movie or a book for entertainment.

Get to prepping, girl!

With all these long-distance care package ideas, your boyfriend will feel loved and cared about. You could DIY it and get it shipped, or get it from an online catalog for convenience. Either way, it is the thought that matters and is a great way to bring you closer despite the distance.
