My boyfriend and I live about 7 hours apart; we’re both in university and see each other for about one weekend every two months.
I came up with an idea to make him a „Bad Day Box.” I just took a cardboard box, filled it with a new, comfy t-shirt, a favorite book, a movie I knew he wanted, some treats, and a couple of pictures of us.
I wrapped it all up and taped instructions to the top: „Open ONLY when you have a whole lot of time to yourself, you’re lonely, you miss me, and you just want the world to go away.”
He ended up opening it when he had had a really stressful day at work, and just wished I was there to make him feel better … and the box sure worked. I was there in spirit!
