how to send a surprise care package

1. Send the package unexpectedly. Dont’ tell the recipient that it’s coming, so they’ll be pleasantly surprised and curious when they are notified of its arrival.

  1. hahaha reminds me of a package my parents sent me….random foods including rice and a horn of wine..yes a horn….a ceramic horn that has wine inside it. Most bizarre thing ever.

  2. I love it. Not too much of a hint. I can tell this one came from Grandma L. I’d better get busy.
    Love you, Grandma M.
