    Thanksgiving Care Packages!

    Advertisements
    What are y'all putting in your thanksgiving care packages????

    a friend of mine from college is in Afghanistan as a contractor right now and weve started talking more and apparently no one has sent him anything the whole time he's been there, even his mom. I want to send a thanksgiving care package but idk what to put in it...hes on a big base so have a commissary and access to everything he needs so im thinking more fun stuff or homemade goodies....


    So far im thinking:
    -some kind of water gun or nerf guns
    -little nerf football
    -pies in a jar from this website:Single Serving Pie in a Jar | Our Best BitesOur Best Bites
    -and like pumpkin bread...


    anything else silly and fun you can think of that they might not be able to get there?

    Anything from your hometown that's special/silly? (Restaurants local to you guys that you can't get anywhere else? Like we have canned "Cincinnati Skyline Chili" that DH/my brother both requested. "Larosas" pizza sauce...stuff like that)
    Favorite Candy
    Put on your big girl panties and deal with it like a boss.

    I sent stuff to make s'mores once. It was a big hit with DH's platoon apparently . I sent a couple bags of marshmallows, some Hershey bars (should be cool enough now, just make sure to put them in a baggie), and a couple boxes of grahm crackers. DH said they all built a fire in a trash can and made s'mores together one night and all had a blast. He said it was great to see his guys cut loose and relax.
