Long-distance relationships can be challenging, which is why awesome surprises packaged in weathered old suitcases can make a cold Canadian winter feel warm and fuzzy.

Imgur user Tyson (leonnosyt) shared his romantic care package surprise from girlfriend Mikki Miller. He lives in Canada while she, according to Instagram, lives in Minnesota. When his girlfriend came to visit him over New Year’s, she left him a little surprise, and texted him where to find it after she left.

Included in the suitcase are love notes and instructions to open envelopes at certain times, like when he’s feeling sad, sick of Canada, in the mood for something sweet, or having a good day. He shared photos of the contents of the entire suitcase on Imgur


Leonnosyt says it’s hard not to open them all at once, but he’s following her instructions to enjoy them one by one. The couple met on design site DeviantArt seven years ago, but only just met in May of last year, he said

Miller is a designer, and although the surprises inside the packages will be delightful I’m sure, the envelopes are works of art themselves. More of her work can be found on Instagram
