What is an open when letter?

 An open when letter is a love letter for every occasion, where your partner or loved one might need one. It's one of the best ways to surprise someone when you are apart from them and also a really cute and fun way to fulfil your partner's needs in a romantic relationship when you are going long distance or are currently physically apart. It's such a sweet way to show you care and a way for them to feel close to you through the whole experience!

What should I write in open when letters?

You could make cute flow charts and personality quizzes, write romantic and funny poems and riddles for them to work out! You could even include cute and fun mini travel sized items to include, like sweets and small practical items to cheer them up every day. Focus on sensory ideas, items they can smell, feel, see, taste, hear. Here are some ideas to get you started! They might be different for different people, as people differ in their relationship needs.

What to put in open when you're bored letters?

You could create little personality quizzes for them, a personality flow chart quiz - or even a jigsaw for them to put together! You could even use different types of candy to send a coded message to them that they have to figure out.

So they can wear them and think of you, the perfect way to make them laugh and feel special! These are the most affordable ones I have found and are the absolute perfect 'open when' gift.

1. Open when you need a hug

Give them your jumper, jacket or fleece to hold, with a promise of snuggling inside it together next time you meet!

2. Open when you want to open everything

Make little paper parcels and packages with funny and creative doodles inside. You could even create a little flow chart quiz or personality quiz with little challenges for them to do to avoid opening everything at once. This is a great place to put the rules of the game, to tell them when and where to open everything.

3. Open when you can't sleep

Fill this letter or parcel with relaxing items to help them unwind and drift off, a pillow spray, Lush's Sleepy Lotion, lavender essential oils, a silken pillow case that feels cool to the touch.

Mini travel size suncream, a hat or a mini fan are all great ideas - you could even include a mini facial spray to cool them down.
