Re: Military Care Packages - need ideas

When my DH was there he said that there was an abundance of toiletries from care packages, so he told me not to send them. He liked magazines, games (he specifically asked for Monopoly and a new soccer ball, their old one had been torn up by being kicked into the barbed wire one too many times.) He worked with some international forces and found that Twinkies were a sort of currency- ask someone to do you a favor and slide them a twinkie and it would be done immediately- so I also sent him a lot of twinkies.
