    Football Care Pack ... IDEAS?!

    Advertisements
    UPDATES #16

    Ok so I've decided my next 2 care packs are going to be Football themed...
    1 Virginia Tech
    1 Dallas Cowboys (booo )

    So far I have ...
    Mini Nerf footballs
    Football boxers
    Blue & White/Maroon & Orange pom poms
    Sports Illustrated Magazines
    Team Schedules
    & just ordered beer flavored popcorn

    I'm just trying to think of other football ideas before I send it out.
    He's in field so I can't send jerseys or electronic games (unless handheld) & things like that.

    Thanks for any & all help ladies!

    oooh i LOVE your ideas so far, those sound really cute and fun. i would just maybe include more snacks? its kinda hard to do game day food in a package - but maybe nacho flavored chips (i think pringles has some?) or buffalo wing flavored chips?
    gatorade! the packets. or propel.

    dallas cowboy cheerleader calendar?
    pics of you dressed as a cheerleader and/or sexy football player?

    i'd possibly do something weird... like try and get turf in the box. or put grass in there. idk.

    i think you could cut out lil footballs and write silly or sweet notes on them!

    Maybe save some sports sections of the local newspaper and send him articles from it; it could be comforting to get some stuff from home! Def send a picture of yourself dressed up like a cheerleader Football shaped sugar cookies? Football pajamas, more snacks like pringles or chex mix, football trading cards... I think I'm out of ideas. What a fun theme though! Oh, maybe you could burn a disc with some music like the theme song they play before football games or tape a football game and send it so he can have like a little football party with friends there or something.

    I'm loving the football shaped cookie idea! You can even ice it to look like them! Or shape them like helmets

    A pillowcase! During the last deployment I did a sports theme for DH and decorated a pillowcase for him (he took it on this one also). I printed mascot images for his favorite teams and then used fabric markers to draw them & color them in on a plain white pillowcase. I did all his teams but you could do one of each or one side in one team and the other on the reverse side. Just take a piece of cardboard and pin the pillowcase around it.

    I'd do more game snacks. Fritos sells nacho cheese in small little cans. And tostitos has small bags of tortilla chips.

    Sweet!!! I found these buffalo chicken strips, instead of beef jerky this go around. But I will look for little tostitos

    I wish I could send cookies (but it takes WEEKS/MONTHS to get there sometimes) & he doesn't have a pillow otherwise I would so do that!!
