Care packages have become popular with the continual pandemic that is currently ravaging the world.
If you love to send care packages to your loved ones, you must be wondering what Covid care package ideas you can send especially if you want to do it yourself.
I love care packages a lot and I was one of the very few people that started writing about starting a care package business online, long before the pandemic hit.
When the pandemic hit, the word care package took a new meaning as people scrambled to find Covid care package ideas that could be put together to send to their loved ones.
The simple post that I wrote became a go-to place for such ideas, I soon realised that people needed more on how to make and sell care packages.
A lot of people also discovered they could make a living selling care packages online. This is what prompted me to create a care package course

Steps to creating a COVID CARE PACKAGE IDEA (DIY)
1.Who are you creating it for?
The first step to putting together a COVID care package idea is to know who you are putting it together for. Even though the symptoms of COVID are the same for most, people, their needs will defer.
This is because we all react to medications in different ways. So If you want to DIY a Covid care package, here is what you need to consider
Age: For example are they young or old
Circumstances: Where is the person at this moment, in the hospital or quarantining at home
Stage: What stage of the sickness are they in? For example, are they recovering, just tested positive or are they seriously ill?
Once you know all this information, you can then begin to think of how to create a covid care package idea that will suit each situation that they are in.
2.Make a list
The second step to creating a DIY Covid care package is to list what you will ut inside the covid care package.
There are many items that can go in a care package for a sick person but you must use information you have about that person to create a covid care package that they will appreciate.
One of the tricks I share in my Care package business course is to learn how to personalize your care packages. When a care package is well personalized, satisfaction is definitely certain.
You can research what items to put in your COVid care package, but here are some that make a lot of sense
- Vapour rub
- Healthy snacks
- Hobby kit
- Pressure Socks
- Herbal Teas.
- Lip balm
- Ubereats giftcard
- Gift card
- personal hygeine items
- selfcare items
- Get well soon card
- Subscriptions to courses, execercise or fitness, netflix or hulu subscriptions
Once you have listed all you can put in your DIY Covid care package, it is time to get your packing.
If you do not want to create your DIY Covid care package by listing, you can choose a covid care package idea by niche. Here are some niches that you can use to create a covid care package
Food: Here most of the items in this care package will be food items or drinkable liquids for a sick person
Comfort items: This contains personal comfort items that are specifically targeted at helping the person be comfortable e.g socks, pyjamas, hand cream, wipes. etc
Selfcare box: This covid care package will be targeted at self-care items that will enable a recovering person to care for themselves e.g is bathing salts, candles, massagers, stress balls etc. Read more about how to start a self-care box business
Depending on where you are sending the covid care package to, you should choose a packaging that will allow your care package to reach your intended recipient in one piece.
The first type of packaging you may want to use is the inner packaging, this is the actual packaging box where you put all that you have packed together to send to the sick person.
It is usually lined with lagging material such as paper fillers or styrofoam lagging, this is used to prevent breakage or friction-based scuffles.
Some people use packing baskets or boxes that can contain all they want to send, others use packaging bags to ensure that they can fit in all that they need to put into the covid care package.
Here are pictures of the kind of packaging you can use for your COVId care packages
Once you have got your inner packaging box, please insert a filing to help cushion your items to avoid breakage due to friction.
Pack the items inside the inner packaging and tape them up with tape or tie them with a string to keep them intact.
You can also use bubble-wrap after packaging the products to avoid breakage due to movement during transportation
The outer packaging is the next step for you to complete your care package packaging stage.
The outer package is usually a mailing box which is often gotten from the logistic company, it could also be a branded box if you are sending this care package as a care package business owner.
This outer box is usually used to seal the inner items to ensure that the receiver gets them in good condition. it has a mailing printout attached to it to indicate where the goods are to be mailed to.
Once this is through it is time to mail your Covid care package
Still interested in the Covid care package ideas let’s get to the next step.
Contact your logistic company, if you are in the US, you will usually use USPS to get your package mailed to the recipient.
There are a variety of ways that you can use to ensure that you get the best logistic company at the best rates for shipping your Covid care package, I shared all that in my course.
Your logistic company will usually give you a tracking code to track your care package to ensure you know when it will be delivered.
