Valentine’s Day is a sneaky holiday for care packages, isn’t it? It comes seemingly right on the heels of all the Christmas/New Years festivities and catches you totally off guard. Suddenly, every shelf is all pink and heart-filled when you SWEAR it was just red and green the day before. But don’t worry, I have your back! This year, your Valentine’s care package won’t sneak up on you!
The Valentine’s care package has a special place in my heart because it’s one of the very first care packages I sent my husband when we were newly dating. It was also the very first one I ever decorated and got me hooked on the entire care package decor thing. Admittedly, my box 6-ish years ago was not nearly as cute as these designs, but everyone has to start somewhere.
If you’re starting on your Valentine’s care package, make sure to check out these cute theme ideas that your loved one will swoon over.
Valentine’s Care Package Themes
Sometimes the best Valentine’s care package is a simple one. This design was in my shop a few years ago and it’s still one of my favorites. The best part of this is the flap with the white hearts on it. Customizing the hearts with reasons you love your service member takes a simple design and makes it more personal. That’s an important part of a Valentine’s care package: making it unique to your loved one and your relationship.
Does your loved one make your heart skip a beat? If so, then this design is perfect for Valentine’s Day! I like this design because it doesn’t scream Valentine’s Day, but is still very romantic. Plus, I’m a little partial because I sent this one to my husband while he was deployed.
Talk about a design that doesn’t exactly say Valentine’s Day! But it’s still so perfect to show someone the love when they’re far away. You could also tweak the saying to be “I love you more than…” and fill in the blank with anything you want.
Try “I love you more than cake,” “I love you more than coffee” or “I love you more than peanut butter loves jelly.”
Another Valentine’s care package that implies love rather than shouting it from the rooftop. This would be a great design if your loved one has a punny sense of humor (or if you do) or if your relationship hasn’t reached the “L” word yet. It’s also ideal if your loved one isn’t a huge fan of the traditional Valentine’s Day images or colors.
Physical affection is certainly something military couples miss out on during deployment, especially on Valentine’s Day. Odds are, if you could send your loved one anything, hugs and kisses would be high on the list. Of course, that’s where I drew inspiration for this year’s Valentine’s care package design.
This design features fun red, white and pink hearts on the bottom paper, but my favorite part is definitely the XO hearts on the flaps. They kind of look like little candies and are certainly an element that adds a lot to the design.
If you like this design, you are in luck! It’s available in my shop here and will help you put together a Valentine’s care package quickly and easily.
