It is that time of year again, the weather starts getting colder, it starts getting darker much earlier, and the clocks go back an hour. The wintertime can be exciting because it brings on the holiday season and spending time with family and friends, but on the other hand, it also brings frigid weather and keeps everyone cooped up indoors. A lot of people even suffer from seasonal depression during this time of year.

If you notice a friend is feeling down, or maybe you just want to surprise them, a care package is the way to do so. Create a basket full of self-care essentials for the winter season. Since there is probably not much to do outside depending on where you live, put together a cozy package that will help your friend bundle up and enjoy their time indoors. If you need some inspiration on what to include, below are some cozy winter care package ideas for your best friend. You never know, your care package might just be the thing that brightens your friend’s mood.

1. Bathe and Relax Kit

One of the coziest that comes to mind when thinking about relaxing activities, is taking a hot bath. You could put together a bundle of bath time essentials to help your best friend relax. You will want to include something to put in your bath. There are so many different things including bath bombs, bath salts, bath melts, and more. Pick something with a scent your friend will love! You can even include this Essential Oil Crystal Roll-On that soothes stress and anxiety and promotes restful sleep and dreams. Next, you can really include anything you want. Add some candles your friend can light to create a sweet-smelling ambiance. Consider including a fuzzy bathrobe and some slippers so your friend will be comfortable after they get out of the bath. You may also want to include something relaxing they can do in the bath, like read a book.

2. Movie Night Bundle

This care package is truly something you can send to pretty much anyone, at any time of year, and it will always be a hit. The crucial piece to this care package is what you are giving your friend to watch. So pick something you know they will love.

Some ideas for movie bundles are 80’s romance, classic horror, or any famous series. For 80’s romance include Pretty in Pink, Say Anything, Can’t Buy Me Love and similar movies. A classic horror bundle can include movies like The Shining, Children of the Corn, Halloween and The Blair Witch Project. For any famous series include all the movies in the series. Consider the Twilight Saga, the Harry Potter Movies, or the Fast & Furious series. If your friend is more of a TV person include their favorite series.

After you figure out what movies/TV shows you want to send, it is time to add snacks! Throw in popcorn and some boxed candy and your good to go! Stay away from including soda if you are sending this in the mail as it will likely explode and ruin the rest of the package.

3. Pamper Yourself Gift Basket

A great theme to promote in any best friend care package is self-care. You want your best friend to love themselves as much as you love them. Making them a basket full of ways that they can treat themselves is the perfect way to show you care. In this gift basket, you will want to include anything your friend can use to pamper themselves. Skincare is a great place to start. Add some face masks, eye serums, moisturizers, and lip balm to create a package that covers all the bases. If you want to skip the hassle, consider this Fresh and Fierce Gift Can which has body wash, face mist, face scrub, a gloss pot, and a shower pouf. You can also include things like fuzzy socks, throw blankets, candles, or whatever else you think your friend will love.

4. Baked Goods

There is rarely a time where baked goods are not a great idea, especially when it comes to care packages. Your best friend is stuck in the house all winter, so give them some fresh baked goodies to much on while they are cozied up on the couch. You can bake your special recipe and hand-deliver them if they are close by or head to your local bakery and pick out a few things. The best option for sending baked goods through the mail is to pick something already prepackaged, like this Mrs. Fields Cookie Crate Combo. This way, you know everything is going to arrive fresh and in good condition.

5. Stress Relieving Activities

Continuing with the theme of relaxation and self-care, a great option for a best friend care package is some stress-relieving activities. You can really customize this for your specific friend’s interests. Perhaps you want to include their favorite book, a mug, and their favorite tea. Or, you might want to include some watercolor pencils and an adult coloring book. Maybe your friend loves to paint and you get them some paintbrushes and some paint-by-numbers. You can even include a massage or spa day gift certificate. The options are truly endless!

It’s never a bad time to let your BFF know you care, but winter opens the door to all sorts of cozy care package options for your best friend. What’s your favorite way to treat your bestie? Let us know in the comments!
