First of all, congratulations on taking another huge step in becoming a better boyfriend. If you are my boyfriend (coming soon) then thank you babe and I do hope you take notes too. Periods are hectic and if your girlfriend is like me then they are really really painful. A care package means a lot during that time of the month. It not only shows that you care but you are trying to be there for her during her hardest time of the month. I mean since most of your mates enjoy comparing period pain to being hit in the nuts imagine going through that pain for 60 to 120 hours, continuously. So yes, get her that care package. It means a lot.

Here is what you will need:

1. A hot water bottle

You only need to buy this once. It really helps soothe the pain. Personally this gem has saved my life countless times.

2. Painkillers

There are two types that work for me, co-codamol and pynstop. These two are fast and they also make it easier to fall asleep.

3. Snacks

First of all make sure you include dark chocolate and lots of fruits. Don’t forget the juice and don’t bring bananas. I am saying this from experience. She needs fiber not more constipation.

 

4.  The best version of yourself

You don’t want to be a Grinch when your woman is full on medusa. Be nice, it’s only for a short period of time.

 

5. Pads/tampons/period cup

Saved the best for last.
