Well I know a lot of us had been posting ideas bout what to send in care packages. I know I see a lot of cool stuff then when it comes time to send a package again I cannot remember any new ideas! So I would love to have one place to come to get a ton of cool ideas! So feel free to post any ideas you have about what to send even if it seems obvious!!! Thanks in advance for the help!
So far: I have sent Christmas Candy, sunflower seeds, snack packs of oreos, nutter butters, and chips ahoy, crystal light packets, an OSU shirt, a keychain photo frame that I can add pics to and send it to him, some of his favorite mints, some wherthers originals, razors he likes, our chrismas card, some picutres, I am getting two magazine subscriptions he wants. I am also gonna buy some beef jerky.
I would love any suggestions! <3
You are welcome! :) lol my husband asked me to not send quite so much chocolate after the christmas one lol :) he has to work out lol
My son is a AN on the Abe. So far he hasn't received the package that we sent hime Dec. 15th. Now I'm ready to send the second one afraid he won't get that one either. Any suggestions?
My husband was told it should settle in a little bit. He got one yesterday I had literally sent 7 days ago but not one I had sent Jan 3rd. He was told it depends on where they fly the shipment in the first place then sometimes the ship changes what they are doing or reroutes so they have to reroute the mail as well.
My boy has told us that sometimes, whole pallets go in the ocean by accident!! My husband and I send three a month. I think during the first deployment, he received all sent but one.
So my son asked me if I could put together a care package for a friend of his who hasn't gotten any mail at all this deployment. Of course I said yes. I'm getting good at stuffing those packages full. This one has to be gluten free, so I was wondering if any of you Ladies had any suggestions. Not to familiar with products like that.
My son requests boxer shorts and black crew socks (he says these disappear in the laundry on board). I have also sent Pringles, tons of beef jerky, summer sausage, playing cards, a football and filling needle, sweet tarts, pkgs of pudding, gold fish crackers, cup of noodles, instant mac n cheese, a book I thought he'd like, letters from us, a memory stick with video from the PBR....It does get a little hard to come up with new ideas.
When he texts me, I ask what he wants me to send. He also requests tobacco products as the ship tends to run out from time to time.
Hope this helps you out with some new ideas. My boy tells me "Don't send anything that melts!" As he loves Marshmallows I had sent him a bag during the first deployment. When I asked if he'd received them he said, "Don't ever do that again!"
Guess it was a scary sight when he opened that box!? Lol!
