I am a HUGE proponent of the care package. To me, there is nothing that shows you care more than putting together a bunch of cute little gifts for a friend. Most of the time, care packages are sent for occasions like recovering from an illness or break up but we really like to celebrate and show we care during the HAPPY moments too! So we put together three happy, happy care packages with our partners at DOVE® Chocolate that you can send your gal pals when something GOOD happens, like a big move (ok maybe you’re sad about that.. but they probably aren’t!), a promotion, or a first date! Here’s a few ideas for making a happy event even better for your besties!
Dove was the perfect partner for this because, well, first of all… every care package obviously needs chocolate. And second of all, inside DOVE PROMISES there’s a cute little message like “Treat Tuesday like Friday” or “Kiss and tell”! They fit perfectly with the sentiment of sending a little encouragement to your pals. Plus, there is nothing like chocolate with a surprise inside! We picked Almond + Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt Caramel + Dark Chocolate for these baskets!

Maybe your BFF got a new job or a big promotion, or maybe she’s just killin’ it at that work life and deserves a little somethin’ somethin’, here’s what she needs:
