    Default Military package ideas

    Hello, My husband is in the military also.He has been in for 16 years and I have
    been with him for 13 of those years. I don't know what you have sent but the
    first thing my husband asks for is powdered Gatorade or any powdered drink(He
    can mix it in his canteen) and peanuts with the shells. Beef Jerky is also a
    favorite. Homemade baked goods packed with care. Another factor I would
    consider is his mobility and ability or inability to store items. What does he
    say he needs? Whenever I send something new, I always figure someone will like
    it and he can use it to barter with. Maybe some of the shelf life dips and
    chips. Hometown newspapers were always well recieved. Of course pictures of
    you and his family. Small packages of Wet wipes, toilet paper, someting wet to
    wipe his tush. I can think of more if you give me some more info. I loved
    sending him things that he did not expect so I thought alot about my items.
    E-mail me off list if you want.

    Theresa had a great list of ideas. One thing that I saw reminded me of the
    Hickory smoked sausage packages that come out about now. They have everything
    included and it has a shelf life or you can put together your own gift box.
