    Help Gifts for an FRG leader? (question for DF)

    Advertisements
    I'm asking for DF because I have no idea so please help!

    DF's FRG leader has been a god-send for him and he wants to get her some sort of gift before they deploy as a thank you. Any ideas? J asked me but I have no clue. He's a single (or engaged as the case may be) guy and she's married (I know nothing else about her) and he wants to know what's appropriate.

    Anything you can give me is helpful! TIA!

    How about like a Yankee or other type of smelly candle? That is pretty neutral.
    It's Halloween so.... you know, BOO!

    re: the giftcard, since that was going to be my suggestion, even if she doesn't have a chance to use it before her DH leaves, when she's in those first few weeks, not having to cook for herself, being able to just pull up to a curbside pick up in her sweats will be wonderfully helpful!

    Personally even just a card would be amazing. I love being the co-leader but it does feel very unappreciated most of the time. The little things count the most though because I know the FRG leader & I both do it because we want to help, we want to participate. Something that is related to your DF's unit would be great (picture, pin, shirt, etc.) simply because it acknowledges the reality of what she is doing. I am not sure if that makes total sense but hopefully it does!
