How does this sound for a halfway bag?

My hubby is deploying soon, so we have to get halfway bags ready to send on the submarine. It's our first deployment, so I'm new to this. Here's my plan:

DVDs (1 or 2)
Nintendo DS game (I'm getting him a DS before he leaves for his Bday)
Hard candy
A pillow case (painted by our little one)
A note from DD and I
Deck of cards

I have to send it in a gallon size bag, so that's all I think will fit. How's it sound? Any additions? Thanks!
