Everything Inside of the FEBRUARY Brave Crate!!
The month of cupid is here… and there’s no way to avoid it! While most of the world obsesses over hearts and chocolates, many of us on the homeside of a deployment are left wondering- should we just wish for February to fly past us?
While it can be tempting to hide away from all things V-Day, Team Brave Crate wants to encourage you to use this month as an opportunity to focus on self love in a season of separation. Even if your deployed partner can’t fill your love tank right now, we’re here to remind you that you are uniquely wonderful and beYOUtiful!
From DIY crafts to send love across the distance to self care essentials and a little something to make your loved one feel closer to home- we hope that everything inside of this month’s Brave Crate gives you something to appreciate about the Valentines Day season as you count down homecoming!
