24 Birthday Care Package Ideas To Spoil A Long Distance Loved One

We all want to be spoiled on birthdays. Who doesn’t want to take a bite on the birthday cake, unbox gifts and sing “Happy birthday” with family and friends?  

However, celebrating birthdays as an adult is much harder. We are now living in an era of separation. 

Every once in a while, we need to say goodbye to a friend that is studying abroad, or the husband that is deployed overseas. 

If there’s anything that makes a birthday alone less lonely, is the love from home. 

That’s why we’ve gathered 24 of the best long distance birthday care package ideas to send someone far away.

If you want to tease your long distance boyfriend or hubby a little bit, send a tutu. He will never see that coming.
