Magazines. They like to read any of them actually. If you bake anything, wrap it in wax paper first, tightly. Then foil, tightly. Then put it in a ziplock bag. Ask about the holiday stuff first, it might bother them. My hubby didn't want any of that. It would have made him more depressed, so I didn't send it. Their laundry will NOT smell the same, so every now and then send something small washed from home. Like a pillow case. Pictures, even though you can email them. OH, condiments! They didn't have actual ketchup where my hubby was! And he had me send a salt grinder for one of the guys. They can get pretty much anything there, unless they are at a remote FOB, but they love to get packages, so send personal care items anyway. Those flat rate boxes are GREAT! And they are like 2 bucks cheaper to send over there then stateside. Some guys like the hand warmers. Can't think of anything else though.
