Fun, festive fall care package

It’s that time again when the days start growing shorter, and the smell of autumn hits you in a passing breeze. Fall has arrived, and it’s a great time to start crafting a fall care package to send to a friend, family member, student at college, or a service member overseas to remind them of this cozy time of year.

We’ve compiled a few items you could piece together to create a care package that screams “happy fall” to your recipient. 


Start by getting a sturdy box. It can be one you are reusing, one from USPS, or one from a local office supply store. Now you’re ready to fill it up! So, without further adieu, here’s our fall care package items list:


  • A cozy blanket. These range from $10 to $50 dollars at a local store, and you can go as simple or decked out as you’d like on this one. The great thing about including a blanket (aside from the guarantee of fall coziness) is that it adds some cushion/padding to any fragile items you may choose to pack. We’ve linked some options for you below.

  • A festive mug. Fall is the perfect time to set up camp on the couch to watch a movie, catch up on a good TV show, or read an entertaining book. A mug of something warm is almost always a must, and a festive one will leave your recipient in a fall spirit. This can be thrifted or from a retail store!

  • Hot cocoa, tea, or apple cider. Is there anything better than one of these seasonal beverages? Perhaps you will notice by now that we have a bit of a theme going. Now that you have the perfect mug selected, you can send a delicious drink to accompany it.

  • A puzzle or board game. On days fit for relaxing or when the wind is too cold, but you’ve been through enough Netflix, a puzzle or board game can be a great thing to do alone or with friends or family. Here are a few we enjoy!

  • A delicious snack. What’s better than a surprise snack (aside from a whole fall care package, of course)? Following along with the theme, send your recipient one of the many fall-themed snacks on the shelves. Maybe even buy some for yourself, so you can compare notes on whether or not the snack was a winner or if it should go out with the witch’s brew.

  • A great book. With their blanket and mug in hand (and perhaps their snack too), your fall care package recipient can find a great spot to read an even greater book which is one of our favorite fall to-dos. We’ve listed a few options here, but definitely check out a local thrift store to snag something fun for your reader as well.
