Care Packages Are a Major Holiday Trend According to Etsy

A box filled with self-care goods features cookies, a mug, and a graphic that reads "hugs not ughs."

The holidays will look different in a lot of ways this year, and that’s including gifts. While electronics or cold hard cash never hurt, turns out holiday care packages and specialty kits could be this year’s biggest gift according to Etsy.

The online maker’s market is predicting care packages as bestseller thanks to already seeing an upswing in searches for the items. The site explains in its 2020 holiday trend guide that, “new and inventive ways to keep close to our favorite people” will be paramount this season. With travel and the ability to see family members safely in question, sending personalized care packages and kits like cocktail-making collections, curated self-care goods, or a create-your-own package as a way to make your loved ones feel cared for even as you’re far apart. Etsy has plenty of them.

The online retailer has set up a lookbook for different giftee demographics. You can grab everything from a tie-dye kit, DIY earring set, and even a jerky-making kit. If you’re already planning your holiday gifts, Etsy may need to be one of your online stops.
