Help! (military wives)

I dont know what to get my DH for fathers day. He is stationed in Iraq and so the number of things i can get him for fathers day is limited. Any suggestions?

  • tons of beef jerkey butt paper and tissues and slim jims and good things to eat, in a box with a commfy pillow!
    maybe some magizines too.
    I sent my friend a care package and you can only send certin things but all he really wanted was beefy treats snacks, TP, tissues and pillows~ LOL

  • it sounds cheesy, but get him a stuffed animal from like build a bear with a message inside of it.
    or go to joanns (or michaels) and get the little animals you can build yourself, and have the child help.
    anything your kids can make for him, or even a bunch of pictures.
    My hubby is set to come home shortly after, so I just got him a few of his fav. magazines, and some of his favorite snacks. But we've done a lot of little craft things. He said that he really apreciated the bears that our kids made for him. he said they stay on his bed. It means a lot to the kids too.
