I want to put together a “care package"/"i love you” package/"comfort" package for my fiance just before she starts her period. I want to show her that I love her… care for her… and will do anything to comfort her.

She gets painful cramps and I hate seeing her in pain.

What should I put in it? I have the heart-shaped box already…

What a sweet idea! Here are my suggestions:

Pain reliever (whatever works best for her: Advil, Motrin, Tylenol)

heat pad (I've had great success with Thermacare disposal heating pads)

comfort food (chocolate, salty, whatever she craves)

bubble bath, bath salts, lotion to relax the pain away

a book or DVD to help take her mind off her physical symptoms

Aww what a wonderful , thoughtful idea,
I agree with everything RoseAnn said.
Most important is letting her know you're there & lots of hugs for her :)

I really don't think I can add to Roseann's list - it's pretty thorough!!

But, in future if you want to do exercise w/your wife (take her hiking/biking/whatever) then exercise is suppose to really help w/the pain. I have no idea since I have never experienced "pain" of any kind during that time...but then I do exercise a lot and always have so maybe that's why?
