The winter months are bleaker and often more miserable than others. Of course, bad moods come in right alongside bad weather, as many people slog through the darker and murkier days with hopes for the approaching spring and summer. The winter blues are a very real threat, and while some laugh it off dismissively as nonsense, others choose a more caring approach.
If you have a friend or two who particularly suffer during the colder season, then there are a few things you can do to help them out; for example, a box full of goodies. You could utilise parcel delivery to get your friends the support they deserve.
Consequently, here’s what your perfect winter blues care package should contain!
Scarves and Socks
Scarves and socks might seem like something of a vanilla and generic gift, but if you buy the right items, they can be extremely appealing. While winter is bleak and depressing, the attire one wears during this season can be quirky, cute, cuddly and snug. Keep those four words in mind when you’re picking out some scarves and socks for your friend!
You could aim for muted, calm colours like pinks, pale blues, and cream colours. Alternatively, you could go a different route entirely if they prefer different styles. The point is, some thick scarves and socks can just give your friend that ‘top up’ feeling they need; whether that’s for warmth or the aesthetics of an outfit. Moreover, they’re all affordable and easily stored, making them perfect for care package delivery!
Favourite Snacks and Sweets
We all have guilty pleasures, and winter is often the time to indulge them (unless someone is particularly committed to their new years resolution of giving up certain things). Still, there’s no better way to say that you know and care about someone than presenting them with their favourite food. It hits home, and it does it fast and affordably.
Consider your pal’s favourite chocolate or crisps, and whack some of them in your care package. Perhaps avoid fizzy drinks; you don’t want them blowing up in their face after they’ve been rattling around in your package! Play it safe and go for smaller snack foods you know they love, because you just can’t go wrong here. You could even get a little creative and bake something yourself, you’ll get additional points here for effort and thoughtfulness.
If you’re keen to get even more affectionate and personal, some pamper products can go down a treat. These types of items are quite affordable, but they’re unique enough to help you impress and emotionally touch your friend. They’ll be more unexpected perhaps, and it could be just what your pal needs more of in the shower or bathrooms.
Important piece of advice; perhaps include your pamper products with other items in the care package. If you present your mate with only pamper products, they may just think you’re subtly criticising their grooming regimen and are now wordlessly stating that they need to spruce up more. Pad this care package out with other things, and it’ll go down a treat.
