One of Husband’s friends has been deployed for a couple months, and I figured it was about time we sent him a care package.
Years ago when I was deployed, I loved getting care packages. It was most definitely the single most exciting part of my day. Many generous family members and friends sent me more care packages than I can count. I was humbled that so many people thought of me.
Now that I’m on the other side, I find it just as fun to send care packages. I love picking out snacks and candy the person might like, and I even enjoy packaging it up. (I guess the only part I don’t like is standing in line at the post office, but who does?)
This particular care package includes: a variety of candy (Sour Patch Kids, Red Vines, Jolly Ranchers, and other non-chocolate candy), gum, chapstick, wet wipes, beef jerky, and a mini flashlight.
I’m always looking for ideas of other things to send. What are your favorite care package items?
