Travel Care Package

My husband doesn't travel a ton, but it seems like every Spring he gets busy with conferences to attend.  He's got flights and car trips so I make sure to send him off with a little care package.  
I want to make sure that
A. He feels love from home
B. He has snacks and doesn't have to depend on airline/airport snacks
C. He knows he's missed

I usually include:
A note for every day that he's going to be gone -
 this time I had Olive help me write messages to Kevin 
and he said he loved seeing her artwork.
Granola bars
Snickers Bar
A pack of travel Kleenex
Minty gum
mixed nuts or peanut M&Ms
a small pack of his favorite beef jerky or trail mix

Olive and I had fun putting together Kevin's travel pack 
despite the fact that she wanted to sample every single item.

Do you have any other fun travel ideas for me?

  2. You are so amazing! I'm sure your hubby looks forward to all that love sent along with him. The most I've ever done is slip little notes in pockets, etc. I like how you took it to another level!

  3. I love how you prioritize the things that you value. You are a very busy Mama who plans and organizes perfectly to do what is important for your family. You are an inspiration! It is very thoughtful of you to send a travel care package. Would he be interested in you adding some type of reading material?

  4. Any time Paul goes out of town, I make sure he has plenty of cereal bars, fruit snacks and something fun to snack on like gummy worms or skittles. I always hide a note in his luggage for him to find while he's away. Gum is a great idea...I'll add that to the stash next time!

  6. This is such a great idea! I usually slip Chauncey one note, but I like the idea of notes for each day.
