I Have A Boyfriend Going To Afganistan!! Care Package Ideas???

Hello, Ladies I want to tell you a little bit about myself. I am 24 years old and my boyfriend is experiencing his first deployment as well as myself. I am currently attending college and will be graduating in august with my bachelors!!yay.. I miss my soldier so much and cant wait for him to come back home. I have been trying really hard to keep myself busy, but it's not working tooooo well. I was wondering if any of you have good ideas for care packages, I have a few and keep doing research cuz I want him to look forward to them.. and want them to be special. I know he woudl be happy with anything I sent him. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I also have a boyfriend who is going abroad long term. I like sending little toys or things that can keep him occupied, such as a rubix cube or minature legos. I like these toys because they do not require batteries, and unlike puzzle books, they will be able to be used over and over again. I also send letters for any situation, like "Read if you are down", "Read if you miss home", "Read when you are in a good mood", "Read when you want a laugh". Treats that don't spoil or melt in extreme temperatures are fun ideas too (like trail mix, starbursts, gum). I always include a picture too! Sometimes its a picture of the two of us, and sometimes it is just a photo of me blowing him a kiss or holding up something of great significance in our relationship. Hope this gives you a few ideas. I know he'll love whatever you send him!
