Being in a long distance relationship is difficult for many reasons, but sometimes the smallest things, like ending the week with a movie and some cuddling on the couch, are the simple pleasures you find yourself missing the most. Today we’re talking about how to plan a perfect long-distance date with a movie-night care package for your honey.
the anatomy of a perfect movie night care package
When putting together a thoughtful movie night care package, think about everything you like to have nearby on a Friday night in.
- PICK THE MOVIE! Might be obvious, but the first step is to pick a movie with some special significance. Maybe it’s the first movie you saw in the theater together? Maybe it’s one that recently came out but you haven’t had a chance to see together, like Guardians of the Galaxy, vol. 2.
- GRAB SOME SNACKS. Let your movie choice inform the snacks you send (Watching Elf? Send them a bottle of syrup!) or stick to the classics, like popcorn, red vines, and chocolate.
- ADD SOME BOOZE. One of the best parts of movie nights at home is being able to grab a glass of wine or bottle of beer mid-movie, which you can’t do at just any theater. So, send your honey a box wine, just in case they don’t have any libations on hand at home.
- GET COZY. Since we picked Guardians of the Galaxy, we love these space socks to make our movie night extra comfy. You could also send a new throw blanket to wrap your boo in, or even a sweater (like the initial sweaters Ron’s mom makes Harry and her kids!). And to add to the space theme, we also included a pack of twinkle lights. But you could also substitute with a candle for some warmth!
