Valentine Care Package

Alright, I’ll admit, this box is the first one I’m sending later than I planned (the goal is always to get them in the mail before the first of the month), but hopefully the theme will make up for that fact.

wp-1486247917227.jpegThis month’s care package stumped me.  I mean, I searched Instagram profiles, Pinterest pins, and anything else I could find only to not find anything I really liked.  I wanted something specifically work-out and valentines related.  I know it’s kind of an odd mix, but I wasn’t expecting it to be that difficult.  Plus, since this is one of the last few care packages I’ll have to send, I want it to be good.  Really good.  So the pressure was on.

Luckily, just in the nick of time, I worked a shift at the Y and my coworker gave me the idea that I decided to run with (she has this saying tattooed on her back)!  Now, as you can see it isn’t G rated, but it’s valentine’s day -and we all know what people do on Valentine’s day (except for people in long distance relationships that is.)  So the official theme is “Sex, Weights, and Protein Shakes” -the perfect mix of work out, and Valentine’s.

Here’s what I included:


OLLY and VEGA single-serve protein shake powder packets.  I literally bought out Target’s stock of single serve protein powder packs so my Love will get a total of 9.  With that, I sent a Nalgene bottle that’s small enough to store, but the perfect size for those packets (and has the ounce labels so he can mix the perfect amount of water with them).  I also sent these weird Nuun Energy effervescent tablets that he can add to water as an energy boost.



To go right along with the workout theme, I added the usual protein bars.  Then I also found these fruit smoothie type protein snacks called SmashPack to include.  Target will forever be my favorite.  Right when I walked in the door I found the My Instant Workout book that was a perfect addition!




Then for the Valentine’s Part, I added a set of “Love Tokens”.  This was a cute little packet of coupons that my Love can redeem when we’re back together in person.




Overall despite being stuck in quite a rut trying to think up this care package, I’m really proud of how it turned out! Thank goodness for coworkers with regretted tattoos!
