This past week I put together a small care package for my brother who lives in California. He recently got a promotion at work and he was awesome enough to help me get my new iPhone 6 set up. He deserved a thank you and congratulations box.
My brother is a health and fitness junkie like myself so I knew it would not be too hard to put together a package he would like. Even on my small student budget I wanted it to be a nice package. I also had to consider shipping cost, which are frankly outrageous, so the box couldn't be as big or full as I would have liked.
I included some of his favorite protein bars- Quest Bars and Pure Protein Bars.
When my brother came home during the summer to go up north with the family I got him hooked on KIND Bars. I threw in a few Madagascar Vanilla Almond KIND Bars and a Dark Chocolate Chunk KIND Healthy Grains Bar.
A few weeks ago I had picked up a Jif Whips S'mores for myself at the grocery store. When I told my brother about it he thought it sounded amazing so I went back and picked one up for him and put it in his care package.
Right before I taped up the box I had some extra room, gotta utilize that free space! I threw in a Ziploc bag filled with fresh almonds from Costco and a Cocoa Almond Square Bar.
I wish I could have spent more and thrown in some additional items, but tight budgets don't always allow for such things. My brother is so appreciative of everything that I know he would like anything. Plus who doesn't like receiving a package full of goodies?!
