The Arrival Store Care Packages



One of the many fun things about living abroad in Korea is getting that occasional package, full of stuff that reminds us of home and we assume we’re not alone in that feeling. Honestly, it’d be nice to receive a box or two a little more often, right?

Turns out, The Arrival Store has created Care Packages that give your friends & family a quick, easy & affordable way to show you some love from home to the -ROK.


Perks include:

– Quick & cheap shipping (about 3 business days & domestic Korean rates)

– Product selections tailored for expats’ wants/needs in Korea (like all that western food we all miss & love)

– Great customer service in English


The Arrival Store has a full list of products & packages here. Some of our favorites include western candy/chocolates, a huge variety of food (like cheese that is nearly impossible to find in a Korean grocery store), great spices for cooking, teas, bedding (super warm stuff!), toaster ovens, French presses & loads of other coffee related goods. Plus, tons more.

When you have time, take a look & hint at your friends & family how easy it is for them to send you a care package from “home.” What’s on your wish-list? We want a french press (well, and everything else) & will be checking the mail for it everyday from now on.
