A friend of mine who was recently diagnosed with a chronic illness has an already-weakened immune system which makes everyday sicknesses become monstrously icky. Last week I learned she came down sick again and although I didn't get this out to her when I meant to, I figured better late than never.
I wrapped up her box in simple brown craft paper even though it could have shipped as-is; there's something fun about being able to tear open a wrapped package before having to cut through the tape.

I dropped in some happy goodies (stationery & thumbtacks), and then of course the requisite chicken noodle soup (dry mix...much safer to ship and also weighs less than a Campbell's Soup can).
