  • Our son is 7 hrs away across the state. We send him a care package once every other month. A gift card to Wal-Mart - the only big box store in town - microwave popcorn, microwave chocolate cake, and some silly stuff from the dollar section at Target.

  • I send care packages all the time. I found hats that he likes and anytime I find one in a new color I ship it with other goodies. For his birthday we sent him a few things and a bundle of balloons. This year was our first birthday apart. I hope some day to have my boys all withing decent driving distance and not 2000 miles away
