Re: Military Care Packages - need ideas

I used to make themed packages for my DH and his brother (one in the Navy, one in the Marines).

One summer I sent a 4th of July BBQ package with American flag napkins, an apron, a chef hat, a spatula, some kiddie hamburger and fries play food, and some snacks likes chips and candy. My brother in law sent pictures back of them having a BBQ in the Iraq desert.

Another good theme package is movie night. A DVD, some microwavable popcorn, soda, candy, stuff like that. I've also done a relaxation package where I sent a soothing CD, a rice sock (to heat up in the microwave), headphones, some cozy PJs or socks, a new pillow case, and a nice scented candle.

Lots of good ideas online!
