It is the start of exam season here in South Africa. I have two cousins writing their Matric exams. We don’t live close by so I decided to pack them a care parcel and courier it to them.
I also designed some exam notecards that we will also gift be to my daughter’s friends with a chocolate or cookies. Just to say we are thinking of them.
You can download the Exam Notecards, they are already grouped in a pack of four for easy printing.
Write a thoughtful note of encouragement!
Ideas to add to a care pack
Get a sturdy box, from your own orders or I love these boxes from Merrypak. This is also a nice size for gifts and also fits in an A3 courier bag.
I like to add some grass/paper cuttings so the gifts does not role around. I got mine from Westpack.
Decide on a colour scheme for some extra visual esthetics.
I added Nomu‘s skinny hot chocolate available from most supermarkets
Woolies mini marshmallows
A little lip balm
A notebook from China mall
A nougat bar from MaMere and
A health bar from Woolies
Other ideas could be pens, mugs and warm socks
Nuts and Popcorn
Wrap your box up in a ribbon and send it off with much love.
Your thoughtful gift will be much appreciated when hunger strikes and they are in need of a little motivation.
