    Default New here and looking for ....


    Hello .. I am new here. My Name is Yvonne and I am a military
    spouse. I am looking for a lot of ideas I could send in a package to
    my husband. He's been gone for over 6 month now and I am running out
    of ideas. Anything would help

    Try sending a one time use camera (if he is able to take photos in
    his military area) and tell him you want to see what he does for his
    entire day and some photos of the people he spends his day with. That
    way he will think of you all day and probably smile every time he
    snaps a photo.

    Welcome to the group as well

    HI there Yvonne. I too am a military wife so I know what you mean
    about running out of ideas. Some things that I can think of off hand
    are...

    ramen noodles
    cup-o-soup
    pens
    pencils
    letter paper
    stamps
    phone cards
    playing cards
    a movie that has been released after he left.
    A few issues of his favorite magazine(s)
    a new set of dominos
    if you have children then a video of the kids doing a little skit or
    something else for their dad
    A mini photo album of the kids and yourself and maybe some other
    family members that he might be missing
    Nuts of any kind
    beef or turkey jerkey
    dried fruit
    Some pre addressed envelopes or cards with stamps on them
    Crossword puzzle books
    Word search books
    Calvin and hobbs book or other comic strip collection he likes
    Pictures drawn, colored, painted ot put together by the kids
    A card from you to him
    Taped episodes of his favorite shows from home
    News of his favorite sports teams

    OK well that's pretty much all I can think of right now. I always
    want to send homemade cookies and brownies but I worry that they
    might be crumbs by the time they make it there. That or melted!
    lol Hope that helps you a bit. Anything that you send will
    definitly brighten his day and make him thankful that he's got a
    great support system at home. I hope he comes home soon!
