    Care Package ideas?

    Advertisements
    I want to just send a small box (I'm a master packer, so could probably get quite a bit in it) and am looking for ideas of fun things to send. I'll take any ideas. I want to send something baseball related (we're both huge fans) and something else, but have no idea what. I'll take any and all suggestions

    Can you do a "take me out to the ball game" theme? Maybe decorate the box like a baseball field.. add in things you would do at a game - crackerjacks, baseball cap, stuff from his favorite team.. you could maybe mix in a "summer" theme and add some other fun goodies. I always find my ideas from going out and about (check out the dollar store), you never know what you might find!!

    I don't watch baseball, so that is all I've got!

    I love this (and your dancing penguin, too )!
    I went to the store today just to get a few things for it so I didn't spend all my money and they had a huge sale, so I got all the contents of the box for $25!
    I sent:
    4 bags of sunflower seeds
    a big bag of peanuts
    3 boxes of Cracker Jack
    popcorn
    cookies
    a Cardinals bottle koozie
    and those Gatorade gummy things (I hope those hold up)
    I also included the history of Take Me Out to the Ballgame just for something fun to read

    I figure his mom is probably sending things he NEEDS, so I'd just send some fun stuff. I can't wait for him to get it now! I was reminded how much of a pain the customs forms are, too.
