As an Army wife, I send my soldier over-the-top care packages to celebrate the holidays when he’s deployed. So, I couldn’t resist making a fun Thanksgiving care package.
These decked out boxes of love are my way of showing him that he has not been forgotten – even during the busy holiday season.
It’s almost November, so that means there’s only a few weeks left to get your Thanksgiving care package in the mail in time for Turkey Day!
Here are some ideas to inspire you to make your best care package yet!
Thanksgiving Care Package Ideas
So Thankful for You
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to remind your long-distance loved one that you are still so thankful for them! This package is simple, but oh so sweet! You could even write all the reasons that you are thankful for them on the leaves inside.
Keep the wordage simple and wish your service member a Happy Thanksgiving! However, add a picture, some fall leaves, and a cute turkey to dress up the box and make your Thanksgiving care package Instagram-worthy!
