With this, here are some ideas I have for an awesome care package for an American female teacher working in South Korea. In no particular order…

  • A handwritten note.
  • Newspaper from hometown.
  • American gifts for coworkers (e.g. Coach accessories).
  • Emergen-C Vitamin packets for water.
  • Coffee beans.
  • School materials for kids, such as pencils, stickers, and activity books.
  • Candies from home, such as mint drops, Skittles, Starbursts, Reese’s Pieces, and 3 Musketeers.
  • Microwave popcorn, especially kettle corn.
  • Sunscreen, Neosporin, and Hydrocortison.
  • Makeup brands and colors that are difficult or impossible to buy in Korea, such as Bare Minerals.
  • Panties and bras… Maybe ask Mom. ^^
  • American gum! I miss Element 5.
  • Sports gear from my favorite NFL team and alma mater. My dad sent magnets and a beer opener key chain.
  • Daily vitamins, including fish oil and vitamin E.
  • Cold medicine, including daytime decongestant and Nyquil.
  • Hot sauce, such as Sriracha and Aardvark.
  • American toothpaste and toothbrushes.
  • Mac and Cheese or Velveta Cheesy Shells.
  • Kitchen goods like taco seasoning, dill, basil, oregano, etc.
